2 HEAD S MESSAGE DEAR STUDENTS, PARENTS AND STAFF, WINTER HAS ARRIVED A LITTLE EARLIER THIS YEAR IT SEEMS. TO HAVE SNOW ON THE GROUND AT THE START OF OUR SECOND HALF TERM WAS A BIT OF SHOCK ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE RETURNING FROM WARMER CLIMATES. HOWEVER, THE FIRST SIGN OF SNOWFLAKES IMMEDIATELY GETS THE CHILDREN EXCITED AND I AM SURE THAT THEY CANNOT WAIT FOR LOWER TEMPERATURES AND PERMANENT SNOW TO PLAY IN. PLEASE DO ENSURE THAT THE CHILDREN ARE NOW COMING TO SCHOOL WITH TEMPERATURE APPROPRIATE CLOTHING AS WE ENCOURAGE THEM TO GO OUTSIDE AND GET FRESH AIR EVERY LUNCH AND BREAK TIME THAT IT IS POSSIBLE. Thanks to all that were involved or supported our recent special events held at school. Book Week was a great success for our Foundation Stage and Primary students with the guest author, Katie Dale making a huge impression with the students. International week is always an enjoyable whole school event and I was especially pleased to see the work going throughout the school this year. Activities across the school were tailored towards the ages of the students this year. One of the big objectives of the week for Primary students is to gain awareness of new and different countries and this was certainly achieved. It was wonderful to see so many parents attending and joining in with activities on Friday morning. The Primary student assemblies led by Mr. Charlton and Mr Noack accordingly offered opportunities to recognise and celebrate the 42 nations represented by our students. Our Secondary students also gained much from cooperating within their house teams. Working with other students of mixed ages within a chosen discipline was a valuable learning experience for all. The key objective of developing opportunities for independent learning and take charge of the projects resulted in some very interesting presentations from the four countries (Malaysia, Uzbekistan, Brazil and Tanzania) studied this year. We have since been settling back into curriculum but also have a number of exciting projects still ahead including the Y1 and Y4 class assemblies and Year 3 and Year 5 productions. Scarily, Christmas itself is not too far away and Class representatives and myself will be planning the class celebrations and our charity drive for this year. Please do be prepared to support these very worthwhile events in the coming weeks as more information reaches you. In the meantime, enjoy the month ahead and hope to see you soon.

3 NURSERY to the Zoo By Sheetal Singh NEWSTrip The children in Nursery have been learning about animals for the past few weeks and what better way to start it off than a trip to the zoo. Prior to the trip, the children learned about the different animals that can be found at the zoo. They painted animals, decorated them and even pretended to be them. The children really enjoyed seeing first-hand what they had been learning about in class. A huge thank you to all of the volunteers who joined us on the trip, your support is greatly appreciated by us all. ISM Newsletter 3

4 RECEPTION NEWS November Excitement! By Hanadi Fawzy This month Reception has been overflowing with activities that have really challenged the children to try new things. They have worked hard in our many themes to expand their minds and their culture, starting with book week and moving on to International Week. Book Week was full of amazing stories presented in an assembly from the wonderful author, Katie Dale. The children then participated in a private lessons and actvivity with the famous author. The children continued the week with The Mr. Men series, making a new Mr. Man and collaborating towards a Mr. Man book. Our class representatives came to experience the fun and learning the children were experiencing. International Week was full of culture that the children enjoyed. In RA the children learned about Russia, RB learned about the Philippines and RC learned about Egypt. The children had fun making crafts that represented segments from each country and got to learn about the different cultures around them. They learned about the counties history, the food they eat, how people dress and dance and even some scary stories! It was a fulfilling time for the teachers and students and I am sure they have talked about the wonderful experiences they had at home. 4 Newsletter ISM

5 YEAR ONE to the Tretyakov Art Gallery By Gillian Candlish NEWSVisit As part of our Integrated Curriculum topic, Ourselves, the children have been looking at a range of self-portraits by famous artists, and learning the skills required to draw their own. We started by studying the features of the face, paying attention to shape and proportion. Some of the children have an excellent eye for detail and produced very lifelike drawings! We had fun experimenting with different materials to make a variety of portraits, using fabric, foam, oil pastels, pencils and paint. To see some real examples of portraits the children in Year 1 visited the Tretyakov Art Gallery where they had a great time identifying paintings that we had looked at in class. We successfully managed to find them all! The children also examined the frames and sketched their favourite designs. Back in class the children used Picasso s style for inspiration and enjoyed coming up with some crazy faces! ISM Newsletter 5

6 INTERNATIONAL WEEK Lower Campus By Chris Charlton What a week! The children travelled around the world without even leaving the school. It has been an extremely busy week for the children with so many fun and exciting activities taking place. Throughout the week each class has been learning about a different country focusing on language, culture, history, transport, food, dance and many other fascinating areas. Children in the foundation stage learned about The Netherlands, Egypt, Russia, India and The Philippines. Year 1-3 learned about Canada, Ireland, Turkey, China, Kuwait, Peru, Kenya and Madagascar. The children live and work in a diverse international community and all teachers tried to take this into consideration when planning their lessons for the week. On Wednesday, the children were lucky enough to see an Indian dance performed by a local dance company. The children were actively engaged throughout the whole performance, especially when some of the teachers joined in with the dance at the front. On Friday the children came in wearing their own international clothes. There was a great variety of national costume on display. Parents were also invited into school on this day to share an international themed breakfast, which everyone enjoyed. It was wonderful to see so many parents in school and joining in with all the activities on offer. Before lunch the whole campus gathered together for an assembly, where everyone explained what activities they had done. There are over 35 countries represented on the lower campus and every child had a chance to be proud of the country they are from. Music was played from each country and the children had the opportunity to parade around the hall. Individual and class competition winners were also shared at this time. Thank you to all the parents, teachers and children who helped make the week run so smoothly. By all accounts, the week was a huge success. 6 Newsletter ISM

8 YEAR TWO NEWS Busy Week By Donna Gaskin Year Two have had an amazing International Week learning about different cultures from around the world, which included a spectacular Indian dance troupe with all its bells and glitter! 2A studied Kuwait. They learned about the dress codes, the respectful customs, the different food including tasting them and the geographical features of Kuwait did you know there are no rivers in Kuwait?! I really enjoyed learning about Kuwait, especially when we did arabic dancing, said Ivi Sluis. Whilst 2A were in the Middle East, 2B immersed themselves in the Peruvian way of life. 2B started their week looking at The UNESCO site of Macchu Picchu, and the wonder of its existence that surrounds it. The class were amazed to learn about the floating islands on Lake Titicaca, the local dress code, the importance of llamas, the mystery of the Nazca lines but more importantly that Peruvians eat Guinea Pigs! 2B were lucky enough to have Josefina Tavella, an enthusiastic year 3 and a local Peruvian, to share her photos and real artifacts. Jetting from South America to Asia, 2C studied China. They enjoyed using the ipads to assist them in learning the numbers one to ten in Mandarin, making Chinese dragons, designing posters illustrating the geographical features of China and finally experiencing life as a historian looking at Chairman Mao. It was nice to celebrate the end of the week with parents and children from all around the world sharing foods and cultural experiences. 8 Newsletter ISM

9 YEAR THREE NEWS Book Week By Mel Danby Our author for Book Week this year was the well-known and popular children s author, Roald Dahl. Class 3A were focusing on The Big Friendly Giant (BFG) which was already a popular book amongst the children. On Monday the children all put in an amazing effort with their favourite book character costumes; we had so many different characters ranging from Pinocchio to The Count of Monte Cristo! Also on Monday, the visiting author Katie Dale spent time with us reading stories related to fairytales and we even got to invent our own magic potion! The BFG centers on the idea of dreams, both good and bad ones. Students thought about dreams which they have had and designed a dream jar to show what their dream would look like. We then used the I.C.T. suite to write labels for our dream jars so they can be identified. These are currently on display in the 3A classroom. Children had lots of opportunities for artwork and I.C.T. during Book Week, working in small groups to design a huge door poster for the classroom advertising The BFG and inventing their own slobbering, disgusting giant inspired by the giants from the book. They used their I.C.T. skills to create an interactive book online, thinking about the important features of books for children. All in all, children had a really great week, which promoted their love of reading and gave them opportunities to develop their understanding and feelings about stories and books. ISM Newsletter 9

10 SPECIALISTS MUSIC NEWS The Monday Blues? By Asta Hodgson This year, children on Lower Campus have been treated to an extra assembly slot on a Monday morning, and the best thing is that this assembly is designated completely to music! Over the years there have been many studies conducted into the value of children experiencing music and taking part in singing. Researchers have found many benefits, so we are pleased that children are receiving this extra time in addition to their regular music lessons to nurture such important developmental factors. Included amongst these are accumulation of language, building a sense of community, boosting self- esteem, stimulation of brain connections and simple enjoyment - a time to release and just be happy! Music is also an excellent alternative way in for teaching children about PSHE topics such as friendship, health and fitness, and different religions, cultures and ethnicities. So far, children have enjoyed learning the ISM School Song which was written by children at the school last year, familiar songs in a variety of languages to celebrate European Languages Day, and You ve Got a Friend in Me from Toy Story to help stress the importance of kindness and friendship to others. We look forward to continuing to make music as a whole community throughout the rest of the year. More recently, children have been learning the songs written by Anna Martin and Katie Murphy for the Music Marathon in aid of Diema s Dream and BBC Children In Need. 10 Newsletter ISM

11 WHOLE SCHOOL Week Upper Primary By Justin Noack throughout the week, including EVENTInternational International Week is an important time at ISM. Our school student body represents 42 different nationalities, so it is always a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the vibrant diversity of our school. In Upper Primary, we spent the first days of the week learning about our own individual countries that covered many different regions of the globe. From history and geography, to culture and physical games, there was a wonderful variety of activities engaging the children - Playing American sports - Learning about the history of Japanese warriors (Samurai and Ninja) - Learning about South Africa s shift from Apartheid - Writing in Thai and learning some language basics - Covering the unique geography of the different nations - Creating models of the volcanic landscape of Iceland - Gumboot dancing and the history behind it - Some American Presidential History and much more! All of this was capped off on Friday, when we enjoyed some delicious national dishes shared by our parents. We were even joined by a large number of parents who shared their time and participated in some activities with us. Thanks to all those who could join us! Overall this week has been a great time for the children to note all the things we share in common, whilst learning about the variety that makes this world - and our school - such an exciting place to be! ISM Newsletter 11

12 WHOLE SCHOOL EVENT Book Week By Katrina Ruffin Book Week this year was full of fantastic fairy tales! Our visiting author, Katie Dale, worked with Nursery up to Year 6 on creating some newspaper articles based on fairy tales to produce ISM s very own Daily Mirror Mirror. Katie was very impressed with how well the pupils worked and the creativity they showed during her workshops - they were excellent representatives of ISM! The pupils were also excited about working with Katie and she proved to be a popular visitor over her four days. Look out for the finished newspaper coming soon. 12 Newsletter ISM Also during Book Week, each year group studied a particular author and took part in various book-related activities, including decorating a big poster for their classroom door. The week started off with pupils and staff members dressed up as a book character and there were some interesting costumes. Special thanks goes to the parents who helped create and organise costumes for their children. The ever-popular book sale with Bookhunter saw a near sell-out on the Upper Campus and some happy children leaving with armfuls of books. Some lucky pupils won a 500 ruble gift voucher to spend at the Bookhunter from their fantastic book cover entries. Well done to all who took part as you made it extremely difficult to choose the winners this year. We hope everyone enjoyed the week and we are already looking forward to next year s Book Week!

14 YEAR FIVE A NEWS Japanese Parents, Sisters and Grandparents Visit By Justin Noack The children of Year 5A had a special treat on Monday of International Week. They were visited by two of our parents, Mrs. Konishi and Mrs. Miyazaki, and Sayori s sister, as part of our week-long study of Japan. The children were immediately enthralled and excited by what our visitors had to share. With their help, we all learnt how to use Japanese manners and language around the school. Some aspects of this were quite different for the children, such as the need to rise and bow to greet adults entering the room! We also learnt some Japanese kanji in order to write out some Japanese mathematics and our names. Finally, perhaps the activity that caused most excitement, was the opportunity to create our own sushi rolls! Even the children who had never tried sushi before could not resist having a turn at preparing their own treats. On Friday, the children also heard the traditional Japanese tale of The Inch High Samurai read by Koji s Grandmother in Japanese and Mr. Noack in English. She even presented the children with some handmade Japanese gifts to take home! Overall, the children truly enjoyed learning about the culture, history, food and people of Japan. The time our Japanese parents and Grandparents, (and sisters) took to visit and share with the children truly added to their excitement and to the authentic feel of the learning.

15 SPORTS NEWS The ISM Football Cup By Adam Hoult The year 4 and 5 students were lucky enough to be able to take part in the 2012 ISM Football cup. This competition began last year and involves a number of other international schools. The aim of the tournament is to give children in years 4 and 5 a great sense of pride in representing ISM at inter-school competitions. This also provides a great stepping stone for the inter-school sport that they will get the opportunity to take part in when they arrive in Year 6. The seven teams that took part all contributed magnificently to a fair, competitive and hardfought tournament. The spirit was fantastic and a good sign for future sports teams at ISM. The semi-final of the tournament was between ISM and EIS (English International School), with ISM claiming an amazing 6-1 victory! Congratulations! Squash Club By Nicole Bowen Many year 4-6 students have chosen Squash as part of the After School Activities Programme this term. The majority of students started as novices. However, over the weeks they have developed their knowledge of the rules as well as important skills including teamwork, concentration and co-ordination. As a result of their hardwork and efforts, the students have a better understanding of the game and have all grown in confidence and ability. ISM Newsletter 15

16 NEWS SPECIAL TechnoKids By Dino Vikas Last Thursday, our school was invaded by robots carrying many colourful plastic bricks! Actually it was the commencement of the TechnoKidz program at ISM. The excitement of the day was only matched by the enthusiasm displayed by the 35 students, who participated in the first of many lessons across three categories: building, animation and robotics. The classes are designed so that students learn technological skills through interesting, engaging and dynamic projects. Children have fun with their friends building their creations or making films, often not realising that they are in fact working hard, learning new skills, applying new theories and sharing fresh ideas. The program runs every Thursday from 3.30pm to 4.30pm and children can join the program at any time throughout, although the earlier the better! I enjoyed using the Lego and building towers. Alexander Wies 4C It was fun very interactive and I completed my first robot in an hour! Paul McPherson 7B It was great fun. The animation characters were very interesting and the teachers were very enthusiastic. Max Tragl 5B 16 Newsletter ISM

18 NEWS SPECIAL Gardening Club By Rob Benians The school s Garden, for those of you who are unaware, is located next to the Art room, and has been developing and growing very quickly. From its early beginnings on the balcony of a Year 3 classroom, to the UC Library balcony, we have moved to a relatively new area to allow us to expand and grow a wide variety of flowers and edible plants. This season, beginning in spring, found our club members planting a huge variety of vegetables and flowering plants. Examples include tomatoes, onions, pumpkins, peppers, strawberries, radishes, carrots and much, much more. We have also begun a flowerbed with clumbers, honeysuckle and clematis, nasturtiums, iris and others. The students have helped to maintain, weed and nurse their plants to great sizes and produced highly productive crops. Through out the summer break the growing continued. On our return we found an over grown Garden of Eden, with a bounty of produce to be enjoyed by our new and returning club members. We have now spent time preparing the Garden for the early, and ever inevitable, Russian winter. Club members have also learned how to design their own garden and observed a variety of plants under the microscope. They hope to continue to expand our garden area in terms of size, variety and interaction for all to enjoy. Lets hope that next year will be just as, if not more, bountiful! 18 Newsletter ISM

20 SECONDARY NEWS Time flies when you are having fun! By Paul Keach We are already in November, time is flying and students in the Secondary School are certainly having fun with their learning and making excellent progress. After School Activities are in full swing. Our first school football tour to Barcelona over the half term holiday was extremely successful. Last but certainly not least, International Week gave all our students the opportunity to explore and present another country to parents and the rest of the Secondary School. As the world around us becomes increasingly competitive, places on courses at universities are becoming ever more challenging to access. Admissions tutors from renowned universities around the globe report that as more and more students attain top grades, admissions offices are increasingly seeking students who have extra-curricular skills which will mark them out above and beyond their peers. At The International School of Moscow we are nurturing our students to compete at the very highest levels with experience of after school activities as far afield as archery to Technokidz. The after school activity programme at The International School of Moscow is world class and I would urge all of our students to not only reap the benefits from it now but also carefully consider developing a portfolio of after school activities which will mark them out as extra special to university admissions tutors and potential employers in the years to come. Over the half term holiday, The International School of Moscow participated in its first international football tournament. The boys, from a wide range of year groups, performed extremely well against some top class opposition from around Barcelona. The boys can feel extremely proud of their achievements. Over the course of the week, they learnt a great deal about themselves and their teammates, as well as life skills which will become increasingly invaluable as they grow older. For three days from Tuesday 30th of October, students in the Secondary School worked within their House groups to plan, research and present to parents and the rest of the school their findings about one of four countries: Brazil, Malaysia, Tanzania and Uzbekistan. Over the course of the three days, a great sense of teamwork and healthy competition developed between the students which drove them to produce some extremely high quality presentations. All of the skills acquired and developed over the course of the three days will be very valuable as our students begin to make their way in the world. In preparation for studying for IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) examinations through the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) board, students at The International School of Moscow also sit Checkpoint examinations in English, Mathematics and Science at the end of Year 9. The purpose of these rigorous examinations is to serve as a checkpoint for students, teachers and parents prior to the students entry into Year 10 when they start their actual IGCSE courses. The Checkpoint examination results give an indicator of the IGCSE results which may be achieved by the individual student if they continue to progress at the same rate throughout Year 10 and 11 (Key Stage 4) as they have in Years 7, 8 and 9 (Key Stage 3). The Summer 2012 ISM Checkpoint results paint an extremely positive picture of the potential grades in Mathematics, English and Science of our current Year 10 students when they will complete their IGCSE courses in the summer of In IGCSE examinations, students are awarded one of the following grades (from highest to lowest): 20 Newsletter ISM

21 A*, A, B, C, D, E, F, G or U (Ungraded) This summer, 69.4% of grades awarded to students in the United Kingdom were C or above. The CIE Checkpoint results suggest that 83% of ISM s IGCSE English, Mathematics and Science grades will be C or above in When analysing the targeted IGCSE grades of our students in the separate subjects of Mathematics, English and Science, the picture is equally as impressive compared with the grades attained by students in the United Kingdom this summer. In Mathematics, 58% of students in the United Kingdom achieved a grade between A and C. At ISM, every single one of our current Year 10 students are expected to achieve a Mathematics IGCSE grade of between A and C. In addition, only 32% of students in the United Kingdom gained a B grade or above in Mathematics this summer. 58% of our current Year 10 students are targeted to attain at least a B grade when they take their IGCSE Mathematics examination in the Summer of With regards to English and Science, it is a similar story. This summer, 63.9% of English grades awarded in the United Kingdom were C or above. At ISM, 92% of our current Year 10 cohort are targeted to attain at least a grade C in the subject. In Science, 60.7% of grades awarded this summer were C or above. 83% of last year s ISM Year 9 students are targeted to attain at least a Grade C in Science. Obviously there is a great deal of work to be done over the next two years in order for our Year 10 students to achieve high IGCSE results and there can be no room whatsoever for complacency. However, these CIE Checkpoint results certainly bode well for excellent results two years from now. Here s to more reasons for a very healthy future at The International School of Moscow.

22 SECONDARY NEWS English By Andrea Jones This term in Year 8 we have been studying War Poetry, looking particularly at poems written in response to events in World War I. We have a read a variety of poems dating from pre to postwar and have been focusing on how these poems reflect how attitudes changed to war. We have been using a wide variety of activities to really try to understand and empathise with the people encountering the circumstances and events that altered opinions of war. One of these activities involved using the school s ipads to record a drama activity. We began by story boarding key images in the poem, Dulce Et Decorum Est by Wilfred Owen. We then chose four of these images in order to act out that moment in the poem. Next we photographed these freeze frames using the ipads, which were really helpful because they allowed us to take many shots of our work so that we could later edit these down to four of our most effective images. Read the poem and consider these images. Perhaps you can suggest which lines inspired these freeze frames? Dulce et Decorum est Pro patria mori by Wilfred Owen Bent double, like old beggars under sacks, Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge, Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs And towards our distant rest began to trudge. Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind; Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots Of tired, outstripped Five-Nines that dropped behind. Gas! GAS! Quick boys!- An ecstasy of fumbling, Fitting the clumsy helmets just in time; But someone still was yelling out and stumbling, And flound ring like a man in fire or lime. Dim, through the misty panes and thick green light, As under a green sea, I saw him drowning. In all my dreams, before my helpless sight, He plunges at me, guttering, choking, drowning. If in some smothering dreams you too could pace Behind the wagon that we flung him in, And watch the white eyes writhing in his face, His hanging face, like a devil s sick of sin; If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs, Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues, - My friend, you would not tell with such high zest To children ardent for some desperate glory, The old lie: Dulce et Decorum est Pro patria mori. 22 Newsletter ISM

24 SECONDARY NEWS Welcome to Science Island By Alanna Campbell Over the last year there has been lots of hard work going on under the radar in order to turn the storage space in The Island, the building in the middle of the Upper Campus playground, into two fully functional and state-of-the-art secondary science laboratories. They are now complete and continue to grow and expand in resources and equipment. Safety was, of course, our first priority. Each lab has fire extinguishers, fire blankets, sand, eye wash stations and access to a walkie-talkie for instant assistance from the school nurse if the need arises. Each bright and airy lab is fitted with six workspaces around the room (each can accommodate groups of up to four students) and each workspace has access to a sink with both hot and cold water and two electrical outlets; these basic amenities are fundamental to the studying of Biology, Chemistry and Physics at IGCSE and beyond. Each laboratory has a fume cupboard with a fully integrated extraction system so that any potentially nasty gases are whisked straight out of the room. All sinks and work surfaces are coated with epoxy chemical and heat-resistant surfaces and are a rather cheery bright blue colour. In addition to the workspaces around the perimeter, we have spacious full height benches for the students to work at during both practical and non-practical lessons. In addition to our scientific equipment, each room has a touch screen interactive whiteboard and access to the Preparation Room, where the chemicals, glassware and resources are stored when they are not in use. Along with our shiny new accommodation we have an ever-growing team of Science specialists. I am returning for a second year as the Chemistry and Physics specialist and am joined by a second Science teacher, Miss Clarke, whose specialism is Biology. We are supported by our full time technician, Miss Nemkevich, who not only manages our resources, but also provides extensive support during practical sessions and is always eager to share her extensive knowledge of the subject. All three of us are endeavoring to source new resources and materials and are working hard to get all the equipment and resources to our new home; although we are already very proud of some of our new additions. The students are also particularly excited about the variety of molecule models on display, using the Van de Graaff generator, taking a closer look at the dissected rabbit and taking a peek at samples under the multi-coloured microscopes. We feel confident that our new surroundings will inspire the students and help them to find Science even more exciting than before. We look forward to reporting back on some of the exciting practicals that will be taking place over the next academic year. 24 Newsletter ISM
