Teaching and the IEYC/IPC : Sports Days Reminder

Issue 55: 1/3/2024 From the Principal

Teaching and the IPC

Teachers use the IPC to teach subjects (other than English and Maths), through a thematic central unit. The Process of Learning is used to support this and follows the cycle:]

Entry Point

The Entry Point is the ‘hook’ into a new unit of work. The duration of an entry point is dependent on nthe unit and the appropriateness of the activity.

Knowledge Harvest

The Knowledge Harvest allows children to reveal what they already know about the unit and what they may want to find out. It allows teachers to identify any misconceptions children may have, and provides the starting point for planning the rest of the unit. The Knowledge Harvest can be added to and developed throughout the course of the unit.

Explaining the Theme

The Unit Summary provides teachers with subject-based information relating to the content of the unit. Explaining the theme involves the teacher supporting children to see the independent and interdependent links of the unit through each subject covered.

Research, Record & Reflection

Research activities provide opportunities for children to use a variety of methods and to work with different peers, to find out a range of information. Record activities provide opportunities for children to explain their findings in multiple ways, showing their learning. These activities support children developing their knowledge, skills and understanding. Reflection time allows them to look at their learning and how they can move forward.

Exit Point

The Exit Point supports children in reflecting on the learning they have done throughout the unit, allowing them to explain their learning to peers, family members, and the wider community. It is also a celebration of the learning that has taken place through the Learning Process. Each child in the school, at some point in Y1 – Y6, will undertake an IPC unit called Brainwave or Brainwave Metacognition, which relates to how people learn. Children will understand more about how the brain works and they will develop strategies to assist their learning.

Additionally, the Stay and Play program at CW and TKO campuses is a fantastic way to involve parents in the early years of their children’s education. Allowing parents to stay and engage in learning activities provides a valuable opportunity for them to witness their child’s educational journey and actively participate in it. 

The Secret Reader program is particularly special, as it enables parents to share stories in their mother tongue with the students, promoting cultural diversity and language development.

These initiatives demonstrate a strong commitment to fostering a positive and inclusive learning environment. 

Cross Stream FIS Primary House Sports Days

This year, we are thrilled to announce the upcoming cross-stream primary sports days. Students will have the opportunity to participate in exciting sports activities as a member of their house team. Please save the dates below for these events.

More information and specific details will be communicated to you by the PE team through Engage, our communication platform.

These sports days align with FIS Strategy AXIS 3.2, which focuses on enhancing our learning environment in terms of academics and collaboration. As part of this strategy, we aim to strengthen collaboration and create more opportunities for cross-stream, cross-division, and cross-campus engagement. By fostering a sense of unity and teamwork, we aim to cultivate a strong sense of identity within the school community. Together, we are One FIS.

We look forward to your participation and the success of these primary sports days.
