Dear primary school parents and families.

亲爱的小学部家长们,

 

It has been another fruitful and exhilarating fewweeks at the primary school in Tianjin. Academic rigor and student achievement have always been priorities at Haileybury. Consequently, the school has established systems and procedures for ensuring academic success. As an international school, one of the ways this is done is through regular classroom observations. Every week, international teachers and their classes are observed by management to ensure that high standards of teaching and learning are maintained and the Haileybury model of teaching and learning is being followed. Everything from the reduction of teacher talk time, the writing of the lesson’s objectives on the whiteboard, neat student handwriting, student engagement, classroom management, the warm up, student comprehension and focus is monitored and assessedin these observations. International teachers also observe each other so that good teaching practice can be spread across the whole department. On Wednesday the 10thof October, our deputy director of teaching and research – Rosie Jiang, also inspected the lesson plans of teachers and the exercise books of our students. The department found many exemplar pieces of work however we will also continue to formulate ways to improve our student outcomes. The department also held a meeting on Friday the 12thof October which evaluated the demonstration lessons of our senior teachers. The Haileybury ‘I do, we do and you do’ model of teaching was reemphasised and effective classroom teaching practice was discussed. 

 

在天津黑利伯瑞国际学校的小学部里,精彩纷呈的几周又过去了。严谨的学术和学生的成就一直是黑利伯瑞所追求的。因此,学校建立了一整套完善的系统来确保教学质量。作为一所国际学校,通过定期的听课是一种有效的方法。每周,管理层都会对国际教师及其班级进行听课,以确保高水平的教学活动,并遵循Haileybury的教学模式。减少教师谈话时间,通过听课制度,把课程目标呈现在白板上,整洁的学生书写,学生参与,课堂管理,热身,学生理解和专注度。国际教师也互相观察,以便良好的教学实践可以在整个学部推广。10月10日,星期三,我们的教学副主任——姜老师,也检查了老师的教案和学生的作业本。也从中发现了许多典范,但我们也将继续制定提高学生成绩的方法。在十月十二日星期五召开会议,评估资深教师的示范课程。重新强调了“我做、我们做、你做”的教学模式,探讨了有效的课堂教学实践。

Haileybury has long had a policy of cooperating and collaborating with the parent community of our school. Feedback from our parents is continuously gathered through our weekly academic report system and these comments are collated and examined. Adjustments and improvements to teaching and learning are constantly made through this system. Parents, however, bring to the school more than just their comments and observations - they also bring their skills, talents and networks. On Friday the 12thof October, three year 6 parents presented three lessons to our year six students. Penelope Weng’s grandmother spoke to the year 6 yellow class on ‘How to take better care of yourself and about etiquette and culture’. Tony Chai’s mother spoke to the year 6 blue class on‘Using maths games to improve maths thinking’ and Louis Zhao’s mother brought Rudra who is her yoga instructor to the year 6 green class. Rudra gave a captivating yoga lesson which the students thoroughly enjoyed. We trust that the mutual collaboration between the school and its parents community will continue into the future and that we will also continue to learn and grow from each other. 

 

黑利伯瑞长期以来注重与我们学校的家长合作与交流。通过每周的周报告,不断收集来自家长的反馈意见,并对这些意见进行整理。通过这个周报告不断地调整和改进教学。然而,家长给学校带来的不仅仅是他们的建议,他们还把技能、才识带到学校的课程中来。10月12日星期五,三名六年级的家长分别给我们六年级的学生上了三节课。翁紫暄的姥姥在6yellow班的课堂上讲到“如何更好地照顾自己和礼仪文化素养”。柴雅轩的妈妈在6bule的班级里为大家上了一节关于“从数学游戏中体会数学思维”的课,赵晓军的妈妈把瑜伽教练鲁德拉带到了6green班,Rudra给学生们上了一堂精彩的瑜伽课。我们相信,学校和家长之间的互助合作将一直持续,我们也将继续相互学习和成长。

Breathe in and then breathe out!


Soccer is an activity which is offered as part of our club program in the afternoons. On Saturday the 13thof October, 13 year four and five students travelled to Daystar Academy in Beijing for a soccer tournament against 7 other international schools. They were accompanied by international principal Mr. Robert Erwin, Primary school welfare director Eric Xu and their soccer coach Mr. Joshua Webb. For many of our students, this was the first time they had played and represented the school in an interschool sports activity. Our students played four games against Keystone A and B, Daystar Academy and Hope International. The games consisted of two 10-minute halves with a small break in between. Many of our students such as Hulk Zhang, Bobby Li and Prince Fu played valiantly and showed outstanding skill and technique well beyond their years. Although we did not manage to win any of our matches, the tournament was a steep learning curve for our players regarding soccer skill, teamwork, sportsmanship and physical endurance. It was encouraging to see so many of our parents come and cheer our players on during the tournament and I am sure many of our players made our parents proud. Haileybury will continue to participate in interschool sporting competitions in the future and I trust we will continue to improve.

 

足球是我们下午活动课提供的一项课程。10月13日,星期六,13名来自四五年级的学生前往北京的Daystar学院(启明星双语学校)参加足球比赛,与其他7所国际学校比赛。陪同他们的还有国际校长罗伯特·欧文先生、小学部德育主任徐老师和他们的足球教练Webb老师。对我们的许多学生来说,这是他们第一次代表学校参加校际体育活动。我们的学生对阵Keystone (北京鼎石学校)A、B、Daystar (启明星双语学校)学院和北京协力国际学校四场比赛。比赛包括两个10分钟比赛,中间有一个小间歇。我们的学生,张梵智浩、李泽嘉、付子君等,都表现得非常勇敢,他们的技艺和技巧都超出了他们的年龄。尽管我们没有赢得比赛,但对于我们的球员来说,在足球技术、团队精神、体育精神和体能方面,都得到了提高。看到这么多父母在比赛中为我们的球员加油助威。我相信,父母们也为孩子们的表现感到骄傲。黑利伯瑞今后将继续参加校际体育比赛,我相信我们会不断地进步。

At Haileybury, we are always looking at ways to improve the English teaching and learning of our staff and students. Last year, the English buddy reading program was established and it continues to be a success as it has provided intensive language support to our students.Like last year, we are lucky to have the support of middle school students (around 50) who are listening and reading to 100 primary school students from years one, two and three. They are reading from the popular Oxford Reading Tree, I can read and the Step into Reading series. Teachers and students have commented on how smoothly these sessions have been. They have also noted the many smiles that have radiated from the faces of our children when students accomplish the honourable feat of reading a book in their second language. The school will continue to support this important program because reading is an important aspect of language acquisition. In addition to the Middle and Primary school joint English buddy reading initiative, primary school students have also been borrowing take-home readers since the first week of school. We now have over 1200 graded readers. This year we added American National Geographic graded readers into our collection. We also have childhood favourites which include The Oxford Reading Tree series (levels 1-9), Step into Reading (levels 1-3), the I can read series (Adventures of Biscuit, Berenstain bears, Splat cat, Marley the Dog, Little Critters, Flat Stanley) and the Usborne First Library. Students may now borrow one book at a time from their English teachers who will manage the borrowing and returning of these books. If a student would like to borrow a specific book or more than one book at a time, special permission may be granted, however, please note that if a student loses a book, the guardian of the student will be required to pay the cost of replacement before the student will be allowed to borrow again. Please look at the table below to see which international English teacher is managing the graded reading of your child. 


在黑利伯瑞,我们一直在寻找提高我们的英语教学和学生学习的方法。去年,英语伙伴阅读项目成立了,并且取得了成功,因为我们的学生提供很多帮助。像去年,我们很幸运地得到了中学生(大约50人)的支持,他们从听和读对1-3年级的100名小学生进行帮助。他们是从流行的牛津阅读树,我可以阅读和阅读系列的步骤。老师和学生都可以有序的进行这项工作。他们还注意到,当学生们完成了用他们的第二语言阅读一本书的时候,我们的孩子们脸上洋溢出灿烂的笑容。它对激发学生阅读兴趣和拓宽语言学习机会起到了很大作用。阅读是语言发展的一个重要组成部分,未来将在孩子的课余时间推出更多阅读活动。除了中小学联合开展英语伙伴阅读活动外,小学生自开学第一周以来也一直借书,把书带回家阅读。我们现在有超过1200名读者。今年我们增加了美国国家地理杂志分级读者。我们还有儿童最爱,包括《牛津读书树》系列(1-9级)、《步入阅读》(1-3级)、《我能读系列》(饼干历险记》、《贝伦斯坦熊》、《斯普拉特猫》、《狗马利》、《小怪物》、《扁平斯坦利》和《乌斯本第一图书馆》。学生现在可以一次从他们的英语教师那里借一本书,由他们管理这些书的借阅和归还。如果学生每次想借一本书或多于一本书,可以获得特别许可,但是,请注意,如果学生丢失一本书,学生监护人将被要求支付更换费用,然后学生将被允许再次借。请看下面的表格,看看哪位国际英语老师在管理你孩子的分级阅读。
