MENTORS for Grade 5 Exhibition

Please consider being an Exhibition Mentor for a small group of grade 5 students

Why we have Exhibition

  • For students to engage in an in-depth, collaborative inquiry
  • To provide students an opportunity to demonstrate independence and responsibility for their own learning
  • To provide students with an opportunity to explore multiple perspectives
  • For students to synthesize and apply learning of previous years and to reflect upon their journey through the PYP
  • To provide an authentic process for assessing student understanding
  • To demonstrate how students can take action as a result of their learning
  • To unite the students, teachers, parents and other members of the school community in a collaborative experience that incorporates the essential elements of the PYP
  • To celebrate the transition of learners in the primary to middle/secondary education

Your mentor role

  • The role of the mentor is chiefly to advise and keep students on track
  • There should be regular meetings. For the most part we would like mentor meetings to happen during UOI time, in the grade 5 classrooms.
  • Offer advice on locating resources and using them efficiently
  • Ask questions (i.e. to clarify thinking, to help with processing information, to extend knowledge etc.)
  • Help interpret sophisticated/difficult information
  • Facilitate interviews, telephone calls, any electronic communication
  • Goal setting and time management advice
  • Be supportive and encouraging
  • Celebrate achievements and successes with the students

Please email any of the grade 5 teachers if you are willing to be a part of this exciting journey!

PYP EXHIBITION – speakers

Grade 5 have chosen “Fairness” as the overall theme for their 2017 Exhibition.

To spark their interest, we are looking for any adult who may like to come into class to talk to the students about their own experience of fairness through their work here in China or a personal experience or interest in any organizations that overcomes fairness that would be relevant to their overall understanding of this theme.

An example here in Nanjing would be a trailing spouse who had to give up friends, a job and social life to follow the working spouse and then found an alternative fulfilment here in China through charity work.

Some “unfairness ideas” already suggested by the students are world food/water supplies, animal rights, racism, and various types of discrimination.

Please e-mail any of the grade 5 teachers if you would be willing to help.

For those interested the latest news on Neil and Ferdi (International colleagues imprisoned in Jakarta) here is the website:  http://freeneilandferdi.org/

I am heading to Jakarta on Saturday. I hope to be at the vigil at JIS on Friday 3rd February. If anyone has messages of hope or support they’d like to send – please put hard copies in my mailbox or send emails and I will compile.  Messages can be simple – a note saying, “Greetings from Nanjing, China… Thinking of you… etc” SO very much appreciated both by those in prison and their families when they have evidence that people around the world are hoping for their release! Also someone asked me if I would take a donation for them but I can’t recall who that was. Please come and see me!

Many thanks!

Urgent – URN needed

The social committee are looking for a stainless steel urn for the mulled wine on Friday. There were 2 at the NIC Christmas Concert but we cannot find where they got them. Please email lindybuckley@Nanjing-school.com if you can help! Thank you!

STAFF CHRISTMAS PARTY

YOUR SOCIAL COMMITTEE would like to draw your attention to the sign-up sheets in the faculty Lounge!

Regarding the Gift Exchange Activity…… Here’s how it works!

You bring a wrapped gift worth between 50 and 100RMB. You may write a clue on your gift if you like…

Place your gift by the tree any time on Friday AND write your name on a slip and put it in the box beside the tree.  We will start at 4:15!

We draw one name from the box. (person ONE)

Person ONE selects a gift from the tree and opens it in front of everyone.

We draw the next name out of the box. (person TWO)

Person TWO can “steal” person ONE’s opened gift and person ONE has to select again from the tree… OR person TWO can select a gift from the tree and open it.

We draw person THREE’s name. Person THREE can “steal”  person ONE’s gift or person TWO’s gift and that person chooses again from the tree…. OR person THREE can choose a gift from under the tree.

If someone takes your gift, you can’t take someone else’s, you always need to choose from the tree! A gift may be “stolen” multiple times……

And so on until all names are called and then person ONE gets the last go – person ONE can take a gift from ANYONE – if they choose to!  That person chooses from under the tree and the game is over!

FUN, FUN, FUN!!
