Year 3 – IPC ‘Active Planet’

The Year 3 children were thrilled to visit the Stephen Hui Geological Museum at HKU as the entry point to their 'Active Planet' IPC unit. They loved the interactive exhibitions, especially the 'make your own earthquake' machine! 

RC-IEYC “The Brilliant Bug Ball”

Reception students have started their new IEYC unit, ‘The Brilliant Bug Ball’.  Jurassic Garage came to visit us and we met some new friends!  The children were very brave and had a wonderful time learning about different insects and small amphibians!  It was an amazing day!

RC – IEYC ‘Once Upon a Time’

RC had a great time at the Exit Point for their IEYC Unit ‘Once Upon A Time’. Students took part in four activities which were linked to each of the stories they had been focusing on over the last few weeks: The Enormous Turnip, The Three Billy Goats Gruff, The Hare & The Tortoise and The Gingerbread Man. They worked together to make a fantastic vegetable soup (out of Play-Doh), built an amazing bridge for the three goats, made a beautiful hare mask and decorated a yummy gingerbread man (and ate it!).

Thank you to all the parents and teachers who joined us!

Year 1 – IPC ‘The Circus is Coming to Town!’

Our Hung Hom campus was full of clowns, magicians, acrobats, stunt men, ring masters, gymnasts and animals today as part of Year 1's IPC Entry Point. 

Year 2 – IPC ‘What’s it made of?”

Students have been learning about materials in our unit What’s It Made Of?  For the Entry Point, the children worked cooperatively to assemble and decorate gingerbread houses – and discovered that gingerbread and candy are not the best construction materials!  Later on, the children investigated the properties of different materials and learned about how materials are chosen for specific uses.  We talked about the problem of plastic on our planet, and how we all must make the effort to reduce our use of single-use plastic.

Year 5 – IPC ‘The Great, The Bold and The Brave’ 

Year 5 students have been on a journey through Hong Kong's history. We started at the history museum before creating a timeline of important dates. We then learned about life as a British colony and during the Japanese occupation. 

Hong Kong's rich culture was then explored by looking at the double happiness story, the history of printing, and the tale of Chinese New Year. Here is a picture of some of the children creating puppets to tell the story using Stop Motion.
