Bug Club

The online кeading programme Bug Club has been very popular with children and parents and we are pleased to see the children make progress in starting to understand the English alphabet and learn new words.

The Bug Club has been used by many English schools and international schools for the last 5 years. However the website Bug Club in England has experienced some technical issues and they are redesigning it for schools. We have contacted the company in the U.K. We were informed that the reading programme will be available in 2 weeks or so.

We are sorry for these technical difficulties but we hope we will be able to use Bug Club again soon.

We hope that this is not too inconvenient. We will inform you in a letter when we have access again to Bug Club reading programme.

IB Student Conferences: Opportunities for Empowerment

Student conferences within IB PYP programme were held at AIS to reflect the students’ progress in academic disciplines and core competencies under the new school strategy on April 10-11.

Students of KG1 - Grade 2 and their parents participated in the Three-Way Conferences that involved three parties: students, parents and teachers. The conference participants discussed students’ progress and achievements emphasizing on the strengths and areas for improvement as well as setting future goals for the next academic year and the ways to assist in their attainment. AIS students shared their thoughts and ideas on inquiries conducted, assessed their role in inquiry activities, demonstrated the works, selected by them well in advance with the teacher’s support, and their portfolios.

The format of Student Led Conferences for Grade 3 - Grade 6 allowed the students to arrange and run conferences on their own. The student portfolio was the main focus of the conferences as it compiles many great examples from different units of inquiry. It gives the students the chance to take full ownership of their work while making their parents proud of all that they have done throughout the year.

The days of student conferences turned to be special for the entire school community and gave our students the unique opportunities for empowerment and engagement. We would like to express gratitude to all AIS families for taking the time to recognize the full worth of a strong IB education!
