This week had been an amazing week even with Krabi being effected by the haze. We still did our physical activities and carried out our stretch and keep fit regime. The students had Zumba on Tuesday and we avoided swimming on Thursday as it was outdoor and replaced it with badminton as it was indoors. Students were really getting better with their strokes, hitting harder and keeping the shuttle cock longer in the air.
Our school will celebrate Halloween on the 31st October. So there will a special lunch and lots of activities. It will be good to start preparing your spooky cloths. We will set aside a period during lessons to celebrate this event. You can either wear your outfit and come to school or you can change them just before we start our celebration. We will use our music lessons to plan this activity. The best dressed outfit will stand a chance to win a prize. Its going to be lots of fun!
There is a Maths competition in Phuket on the 26th October. Registration closes on the 1st October. The finals for this competition is in April next year in Chiang Mai. Students that are keen on this competition please let the school know. We have less than a month to prepare for this exam and the school will help students prepare for this exam.
This week, students have finished learning about the different parts of speech and how to differentiate them in a sentence. Next week they will have a test to test their knowledge. They learned the difference between an adjective and an adverb, when to use conjunctions, and the different types of verbs. Overall, they had a lot of fun with the different hands on activities to help build their knowledge on the different parts of speech.
The students struggled to grasp how pronouns and nouns are different, but after a few days and a few different activities, they really understood when to use different types or pronouns. Learning the 3 types of verbs has also been tricky but had a lot of fun with the activity of identifying when it is an action verb versus a linking or helping verb.
All the students in Primary have created an e mail account. They are pretty savvy and are able to log in without any help and check their emails. They are also able to reply to e mails and create e mails. adding attachments are easy to e mails and in general, they are very familiar with their e mail accounts. This week, students were challenged to do artwork using the software paint. They learned how to insert 2d objects, 3d objects, and add text to their artworks. At the end of the class, students surprisingly produced beautiful artworks. They enjoyed their learning about this software, and we will continue this until next week.
Chess Champion and Star of the Week
Champion Magnus Carlsen became World Chess Champion in 2013 by defeating Viswanathan Anand. In the following year, he retained his title against Anand, and won both the 2014 World Rapid Championship and World Blitz Championship, thus becoming the first player to hold all three titles simultaneously. He defended his classical world title against Sergey Karjakin in 2016, and against Fabiano Caruana in 2018. At Singapore Genius School Krabi, Rajpal was able to finally regain back his title from Gerrit. The match was fought with so much of emotions and so rapid because of the excitement. All games are allowed a time of not more than 5 minutes. The game ends either with a checkmate or no time left on the clock for the loser.
Singapore Genius School Krabi Star of the week went to Focus. His continued display of hardwork throughout the week was exemplary. Focus takes all his lessons and sports enthaustically as such he was awarded the prestigious Star of the week at Singapore Genius School Krabi.
