Part 1 一年级
Review contents:Animal´s Habitats复习：动物的栖息地
Our 2nd Unit, called I am Alive, has finished, and the students needed to review all the contents to pass their evaluation. During this unit, students have learnt several topics that belong to different subjects: Science, Art, Geography and PE. Our students really liked some of these topics，such as Animals and their Habitats. All three of our IPC classes were reviewing these topics during this week using fun activities and games. They reviewed which animals belong to each habitat and the characteristics of these places. Students and teachers created big colored posters to represent each habitat. Each poster has pictures of animals and students learnt how to categorize the correct animals in their perfect habitat.
Review: Farm and Jungle Animals复习：农场动物和丛林动物
Among our different topics, animals were one of their favourite and they truly enjoyed the activities and games used to review these contents. Students classified the animals in two groups: Farm and Jungle animals. They used pictures, flashcards, songs and some videos to review this topic.
Parts of the Plant植物的结构
Other interesting topics that our students have learnt during the 2nd unit, is the Parts of the Plant. In unit 1, they learnt the Life Cycle of a Plant; therefore, this unit was the perfect moment to learn each part of a plant and also, the plants´ needs. Students have learnt that a plant has 4 parts: Roots, Stem, Leaves and Flowers. Teachers have been using flashcards on the board to review and improve their visual memory.
Numbers: Plus and Equals数字：加法和等式
During this semester, the students have learnt math in English too. They've already known how to solve equations below 10 using English terms like: Plus (+) and Equals (=). Obviously, our students and teachers were reviewing the different ways to add numbers in an equation that would result in ten.
English Class: Alphabet 英语课： 字母表
During English class, students have been reviewing the alphabet using flashcards on the board. In class 3, Mr. Dennis introduced a game to help students identify the missing letters without having to recite the entire alphabet. It was not easy in the beginning but very useful in the end.
This week we also had our IPC final evaluation of the 1st semester. There were several stages or stations, one stage for each topic of the first two units. One of the stages was for the Parts of the Body with Mrs. Annie, another one was about School Supplies with Mr. Dennis. Each teacher had to evaluate a different topic through interesting and practical activities. Ms. Eva was in charge of the Math Station, Ms. Lisa oversaw the Animals´ Station, Ms. Helen asked students about Healthy or Unhealthy food and Mr. David had to assess the Parts of a Plant. Besides, there were more stations like those ones dedicated to Geography and Landmarks, supervised by Lyric and Roey and, the Life Cycles Station with Mrs. Sween. All students did a great job in this evaluation because they all have been improving their knowledge and skills in different ways. Here you can see some of our students undergoing their final evaluation.

Let’s Celebrate: Music, Society, and PE! 让我们一起庆祝吧：音乐，社会和体育
In T. Rowena and T. Cathy’s class, the students practice their Christmas dances and learn the phrase “follow the dance steps.” Time to get some exercise!
在Rowena和Cathy的课堂上，孩子们练习了关于圣诞节的舞蹈，并学会了“follow the dance steps”这句话。是时候锻炼一下了！
This week in T. Lolomi and T. Jojo’s class, the students practiced demonstrating their knowledge about Christmas. They used the vocab words and statements like “I know,” “I can,” and “I understand” and presented their knowledge to the class. Very advanced!

Comic Strip Stories!漫画故事
Using the portfolio packets, the students made a story using the four boxes. After they created their art, T. Liz and T. Phoebe’s students wrote who their main character was and what the comic strip was about. As an example, T. Liz read a story about a nervous mouse named, Wemberly, and then turned the story into a comic strip (as seen in the top left photo).

Welcome to our class Pt.2欢迎来到我们的课堂Pt.2
In T. Liz and T. Phoebe’s class, visitors watched as the students listened to “Silent Night” and wrote about what they felt and what they noticed about the music. Most kids thought it was a sad song, but some kids didn’t. It was a blast listening to music and thinking about it seriously!

T.Rowena and T. Cathy had an amazing display on the day of the observation! The art and museums from the last five weeks were out on display.
