Mathematics Learning at WIS – Focus on Year 7 and MYP

Tuesday 10 November – 6pm

The Webinar will explain the philosophy behind teaching and learning mathematics at West Island School.  During the Webinar, recent tasks from the Year 7 MYP 1 curriculum will be used to demonstrate the practical applications of this philosophy and how students are challenged at all levels using “low-threshold, high ceiling” tasks and extension work.   The structure and format of MYP assessment will also be explained, and how the pathways of mathematics learning at WIS progress through to Y13.  There will be time for Questions and Answers.

Message from Mrs Haworth for Year 9 – 12 Parents

Last term we were delighted to connect with you, through the questions and feedback you provided during our webinars which centered around children’s well being, core skills and use of social media/online platforms.

I invite those of you interested to connect with us once again as we review our Years 9-12 drugs education programme. In order to develop a relevant programme we are keen to get parental feedback on what resources, advice and support you would be interested to see included in parent and student workshops surrounding substance misuse.

If you would like to  join me and some of our Well Being team for a discussion on what makes an effective drugs programme please email Ms Natasha Lee (natasha.lee@wis.edu.hk) to indicate your interest.

I will then be in touch with some suggested dates and times.
