Dear Parents P1

It was great to see everyone today on our first day of term. The children had a very happy day and enjoyed being in their new class of P1. We look forward to seeing the rest of our friends very soon who are still traveling back to Sakhalin over the next week or so.


As you may be aware, last year, Sakhalin International School was one of a few schools who consulted on and trialed the new IEYC (International Early Years Curriculum); a new and innovative research-based curriculum designed [to meet the developmental needs of 2-5 year olds] by IPC based on latest research into how children learn. This summer, Miss Tricia also attended training sessions in London about the IEYC and was invited to share good practices from our school with teachers from around the world.


This year, it has been decided that Sakhalin International School will fully implement the IEYC. The curriculum supports key areas of learning through holistic enquiry and play-based approaches that cover all curriculum areas including personal, social and emotional development. It offers a wide range of units with titles that will spark children’s imaginations, based on eight guiding principles.


We will be starting the term with the new unit This Is Me. We are very excited to be leading learning in this new curriculum and providing your children with new and exciting learning opportunities with a curriculum supported by latest research. Please find attached the learning letter for this new unit.


Please see the timetable on our P1 page which shows which days we have swimming, library and PE. Swimming will start this Monday so please send you child with a towel, swimming costume, swimming hat and googles (swimming hat is compulsory but googles are only recommended) We will be walking over to the Oasis for swimming so if they can have their swimming in a bag that can be carried on their back then this will help.
