家庭迎新日|同心合一 教養孩童

搬遷新校址后,這是更新第一次面向全校家庭舉辦活動。

今天,更新的家庭們來到了我們的新校區,看到了孩子們學習、成長的這一方天地。正如我們家長所說的,“更新雖然換了地方,但是更新的理念、更新的愛都是不變的。它從原來的校區也一樣帶到了新的校區?!?/strong>

因著我們心懷同樣的教育愿景

才能在教養孩童的路上同心合一

我們期待在未來的年歲中

繼續與每一個更新家庭攜手同行

共創孩子們的美好未來 ??

下午,家長們分年級、分批次,來到唐鎮校區參加新學期的家庭迎新日活動。

學校防疫工作小組嚴格按照防疫要求,對每一位入校家長的健康碼進行了檢查,同時還安排了專人負責測量和登記每人的體溫。

家長們陸續抵達后,他們在行政老師的分批帶領下,有序地參觀了新校園。

參觀結束后,家長們先是在多功能教室參加了每個年級的全體家長會議。首先,更新教育創辦人李倩校長向所有到場的家長們表達了歡迎——在新學期之始,尤其是在經歷了幾個月裝修、搬遷工程的艱辛之后,今天再次見到大家真是感慨萬千。

更新教育創辦人李倩校長

這是我們第一次在新校區見到更新家庭們,一切都是熟悉的,但一切又都是全新的。

隨后,更新學術校長劉瑾老師和Mr. Lockman先生為家長們介紹了每個年級的教學團隊,各學科負責人也分別對不同科目的課程規劃進行了介紹。

年級會議結束后,各班家長分別回到了自己孩子所在的主班教室,和中外方班主任、各科老師進行會面。每位老師和家長們詳細溝通了孩子們開學前兩周的情況,也提供了下一步繼續幫助孩子的建議。

更新家長們在開家長會的時候,孩子們也沒有閑著——他們今天也忙著參加義賣和書展的活動呢!

「義賣?FLea Market」

此次義賣由更新學校的學生會一手策劃、組織,我們的學生和家長們都積極地參與到此次活動中來——有些作為商家,有些作為顧客,大家齊心協力地在為義賣籌款。本次義賣活動中,所有的籌款將用于未來學生會活動的規劃、設備(如學生休息室內娛樂及休息設備)的購置。

「書展?Bookfair」

學校舉行了為期三天的書展,書攤上擺滿了各類的英文書籍,供孩子們閱讀和購買。

在書展上,更新的孩子們興奮地翻閱著一本又一本的書籍——閱讀是他們學習的主要方式之一。外教老師們對語言學習中的閱讀非常重視,一直鼓勵學生們每天堅持至少20分鐘的英文原文閱讀。他們能夠從英文的閱讀輸入中學習語言,更能夠看到拓寬自己視野的另一個世界。

//////////

一直以來,更新教育致力于造就的并不是一個純學科教育。我們更想要為孩子們提供的是一個融合了“學校、家庭、社會”三者為一體的社群成長環境。

更新學校希望培養“有著蓬勃生命力的孩子、有著國際視野的青年、有著明晰人生目標的終身學習者?!?/p>

行公義

ACT?JUSTLY

好憐憫?

LOVE?MERCY

存謙卑的心?

WALK?HUMBLY

更新創意挑戰 Transformation Academy Creativity Challenge

Our 9th grade students, Anna Cao and Esther Wang, created a heart warming video of why students and staff love TAS. Their video was among the top five winners of our Transformation Academy creativity challenge of 2019.

在我校2019年創意挑戰活動中,9年級學生曹藝、王亦凡制作了這個暖心視頻,講述了更新師生愛這所學校的理由,當選TOP 5。

歡迎回來!Welcome Back to TAS!

更新學校全情投入,整裝就緒,迎接新學期。相信大家都度過了一個美妙的新年。耳畔縈繞的都是孩子們開心的旅程,迪士尼、美國、日本等等。每一位學生和老師都精力充沛地開始了新學期。孩子們和老師們再次聯結,走廊里處處都是問候與歡笑。同時,他們也都在盡力回到學校節奏中來。第一周充滿了激動人心的新課程,服務他人的新機會,還有形形色色的藝術項目。一些班級還特別慶祝了本學年的第100個在校日。

Transformation Academy is back in full swing and we couldn’t be more excited! We hope all of you had a wonderful New Year and Spring Festival. It has been great to hear stories of students’ trips to Disney Land, the United States, Japan, and so much more. Students and staff have been refreshed from the holiday and are full of energy for the new semester. The hallways at TAS have been filled with warm greetings as students were reunited with their classmates and teachers. Students are doing a great job getting back into the daily rhythm of school life. The first week back in the classroom has been filled with exciting new lessons, service opportunities, and art projects. Some classes even took time to celebrate the 100thday of school for this year!?

TAS職業生涯體驗之 TAS Career Education

–走近汽車行業 A Walk Into the Auto Industry

初中階段正處于生涯探索期,根據《上海市教育委員會關于加強中小學生涯教育的指導意見》的文件精神,初中生涯教育課程與活動實施,要以綜合實踐活動為載體,拓展學生對社會分工、職業角色的體驗與認識,初步形成生涯規劃的意識與能力。本學期末我校針對初中部的學生開展了生涯體驗活動之走進汽車行業。

It is career exploration time for middle school students. According to?Guidance on strengthening career education in primary and secondary schools from Shanghai Education Bureau, the middle school lesson and activates should combined with the practical activities. Middle school students should have a basic sense and the ability to understand the social division of labor, different careers, and their ideal career plan. This semester, we arranged for our middle school students to “Walk Into the Auto Industry”.



2019年1月22日,我校7-9年級的同學們來到了上海大眾汽車位于安亭新城的第三座工廠——汽車三廠,探索上海大眾汽車卓越發展的秘密。一走進廠區接待大廳同學就被各種不同款式的汽車吸引了眼球,通過專業講解員的細致介紹和觀看公司發展宣傳片,學生們了解了上海大眾汽車有限公司的規模、發展歷程和各類車型。

TAS students visited the third factory of Shanghai Volkswagen company in Anting new city on Jan.22, 2019. All students were attracted by the different cars once they came into the reception lobby. The guide introduced the company and students watched the company video that helped them understand the scales and history of each type of car.

隨后同學們在工作人員的帶領下,乘坐廠區電瓶游覽車參觀了沖壓、車身、總裝車間,近距離地觀察、了解汽車的制造過程。當同學們進入汽車生產車間,立刻被眼前的景象震撼了,在這里每天無數塊鋼板經過沖壓車間的沖壓成型,車身車間的組裝焊接,油漆車間的涂裝噴漆、空腔注蠟,以及總裝車間的模塊化裝備,成為一輛輛鮮活靈動的汽車成品,最后再經過一系列的嚴格測試,被上海大眾汽車認可后方可投放市場。

Then, the students visited the stamping, body and final assembly workshop by taking the battery tour car. Students observed and understood the manufacturing process of the car. When students entered the car production workshop, they were shocked at the sight of it. There are millions of pieces of steel plates being stamped in the workshop, welding being done in the body shop assembly, paint coating, cavity wax injections, and modular assembly equipment. These are all important steps in automobile production. Finally, after a series of rigorous testing, and Shanghai Volkswagen recognition, cars can be sold in the market. 

離開上海大眾,我們來到了位于安亭新城的上海汽車博物館,它是中國首家專業汽車博館,內設歷史館、珍藏館、探索館以及臨展區等4個功能不同的展示區域,有20多種品牌的近百輛經典古董車陳列其中。

After the Shanghai Volkswagen tour we visited the Shanghai car museum. It was the first professional car museum in China. There are four different sections including history, collection, exploratorium and exhibition. It also has more than 20 types of car brand exhibits.

通過參觀和工作人員的講解,同學們全面了解了汽車的發展史,對各種炫酷的汽車贊嘆不已!

Students were excited to learn about the history of car development!

最后同學們還觀看了宣傳片《未來的汽車》,通過圖文并茂地介紹大家了解了汽車行業未來的發展前景及未來的汽車將為我們的生活帶來翻天覆地的改變。在一陣熱烈的掌聲中,我們結束了本次生涯活動體驗之旅,同學受益匪淺。

At the end, students watched a video called The Future Cars. They were all surprised by the big changes that cars can bring into our life and into the future. Students learned a lot by reading picture descriptions and watching informational videos.?

學生感言 Feedback from students?:

今天參觀大眾汽車廠,讓我了解了大眾汽車的生產流程和工人們精益求精的匠人精神。參觀汽車博物館,讓我了解了汽車的悠久歷史。那些別致的古董車,讓我大開眼界。

I learned the process of producing a car and inspired by the spirit of keep improving by visiting the car museum. I also understand more information about the car development. The antique cars surprised me.

?????????????????????????????????——七年級皋尹川 G7 Gao Yinzheng

汽車加工廠的工作車間面積非常大,工人卻很少,我看到了大量的現代化的機器替代了人工操作,不僅感嘆科技的力量。在參觀汽車博物館我了解到人類汽車發展史,還看到了個性定制的汽車。希望在不久的將來我也能擁有屬于自己的個性化汽車。

The workshop space of producing cars is huge, but there is few workers. What I saw from this is that technology developed significantly, and it even can replace a lot of manual works. I also learned a lot about the history of car’s development. I saw customized cars as well. I wish I have my own customized car in the nearly future.

                                 ——七年級王祺禎   G7 Wang Qizhen

在大眾汽車制造工廠我第一次走進生產車間,看到了那么多待組裝的汽車零件和成品汽車,非常驚訝。汽車博物館讓我看到許多汽車模型,了解了百年來汽車行業發展的進程,感受了科技的發達給汽車行業帶來的巨大變化。

It was my first time walking into a manufacturing workshop. I saw a lot of automobile parts and finished cars, which surprised me. I saw many car models, learned the history of car development, and felt the changes that cars bring to the human beings.

家長每周更新 12.17-12.21 Parent Update

親愛的家長們:大家好!

Good day, dear parents,

過去的一周校園里熱熱鬧鬧的,有慶祝圣誕的各種歌唱演出活動,有為了圣誕義賣開始張貼海報的產品推廣活動,有書商進校園為老師和同學們提供書籍服務的”與書面對面”活動,穿插其中的還有MAP考試。

The festival atmosphere heated up during the past week. There were various activities including singing, publicity for the Flea Market, and book sale browsing. Besides, we had MAP testing.

我把九月份的MAP測試結果的總體情況跟家長溝通一下:

I’m here to communicate the results of the MAP testing in September to you.

九月份的MAP測試,更新的1,2年級測試了英文閱讀和數學,3-9年級增加了語言使用。(因為1,2年級不測試語言使用)我把測試中心的橫向比較的結果跟大家分享。

G1 & G2 had English Reading and Math while G3-G9 had language usage as well. I will show you the results compared to the peers.

數學的橫向比較情況:

Math:

更新各年級的數學的平均成績遠超美國同年級的平均分。

The average level of TAS students is way higher than that of American peers.

同時,更新各年級也超過中國的國際學校的平均分,其中2,7,8,9四個年級顯著超越。

When compared to the average score of domestic international schools, we can also see steps higher, especially G2, G7, G8 and G9.

英文閱讀的橫向比較情況:

English:

更新的二年級遠超美國的二年級的水平;1,3,4,9略高于美國平均水平;5,7年級略低于美國平均水平;6,8年級低于美國平均水平。

G2 is much better than American peers. G1, G3, G4 and G9 have better results than American ones. G5 & G7 is a bit lower. G6 & G8 have a lot to improve compared to the peers in U.S.

跟中國的國際學校相比較,2和9年級要高于他們;1,4,7基本相當;3,5,6,8年級低于中國國際學校的平均分。

If we take Chinese international schools for comparison, G2 and G9 behave better. G1, G4, and G7 are at the same level. G3, G5 G8, and G8 is a bit lower.

語言使用的橫向比較:

Language usage

3年級遠高于美國平均分,4,5,7,8年級比美國同年級的平均分高,6年級基本相當。

G3 is far higher than American ones. G4, G5, G7, and G8 are better and G6 is at the same level.

與中國國際學校相比,7年級大大高于中國國際學校的平均分;3,9年級高于他們;4,5年級基本相當,6和8年級低于他們。但是更新的孩子們的語文素養遠超過中國國際學校的孩子們。

G7 is much better than their peers in other domestic international schools. G3 & G9 are a bit higher. G4 & G5 are at the same level. G6 & G8 are lower. Gladly, our students are shining more brightly than those from other international schools in Chinese language.

學校在十二月初,請各班同學給每個任課老師進行了打分??傮w情況相當不錯,但也有個別老師和個別同學之間還沒有形成良好的師生關系,學校已經與老師溝通,協助并確保每一個同學都能感受到老師們的愛心。讓孩子們在愛的環境中快樂成長!

We invited students to grade teachers at the beginning of December. The results are satisfactory in general while some students and teachers have reached intimate bonds. We’ve talked to the teachers to make sure every student can feel the love from them and enjoy their school life in a loving environment.

明天下午學校有圣誕義賣活動,家長在二點以后可以進場,盼望家長們多多支持啊!多買點義賣產品,幫助孩子們籌款目標實現??!

We will have Flea Market tomorrow afternoon. You may walk in after 2 p.m. We are longing for your support and help students raise money!

更新圣誕義賣 TAS Christmas Flea Market

更新學校全體師生和家長在周一的圣誕義賣會上都真真切切地演繹出了慷慨。在義賣會上我們看到孩子們成群結隊售賣物品,并以班級為單位把每個人的愛心融合到了一起。孩子們不僅能在圣誕義賣會的過程中接觸商業技能,更能通過對上海新生命之家的捐贈真實地感受到慷慨的力量。更新學校的每一個孩子都經歷了從辛苦的前期籌備,到收到錢款的喜悅,再到幫助他人的感動。他們的每一分努力都至關重要。

TAS took part in the spirit of generosity this past Monday during their annual Flea Market. During this market we saw students coming together in order to sell their products they have and made as a class in order to help others. The flea market does not only teach students business skills but generosity as well because all of the money raised will be donated to charity. Students at TAS recognize that their hard work and efforts were vital in raising money to help others. 

經過我校初中生的調研及民主投票,捐款對象定為上海新生命之家。這是一個通過提供手術治療及關愛撫養,幫助中國被遺棄的殘疾嬰孩的非盈利性慈善機構。它提供了孩子們成長所需的硬件、心理及發展需求。今年我校共籌款約70,000人民幣。我們為如此貢獻感到驕傲!

Our middle school students voted on which charity the funds would be donated to and they have decided to give to The Shanghai Healing Home (SHH). SHH is a non-profit foster home assisting local Chinese Children’s Welfare Institutes by providing pre and post-surgical care to abandoned Chinese orphan babies born with surgically correctable deformities. SHH provides a home-like environment for the babies in order to meet their physical, emotional, and developmental needs. This year our students were able to raise 70,000 RMB for SHH.  We are so proud of our students’ hard work which will changes babies lives forever!

家長每周更新 12.10-12.14 Parent Update

親愛的家長們,大家好!

Dear parents,

時間過得好快,下周孩子們又要進行MAP測試了,看看孩子們經過三個月的學習長進了多少。美國的高校越來越重視MAP測試的成績,因為它可以從多個角度反映孩子們持續的學業成長。

How time flies! Another MAP testing comes next week to see how much progress students have made during the past 3 months. American universities are putting increasing emphasis on MAP results because they can reflect student’s academic growth in different angles.

24號是孩子們的圣誕義賣活動。今年圣誕義賣籌集的資金通過初中部同學們的投票表決將繼續幫助上海醫治之家。上海醫治之家專門收留殘疾的棄嬰,每年根據籌得的資金數量幫助棄嬰做恢復手術(除了撫養他們之外)。一年級的孩子在用英文寫”我眼中的上海”時,充滿感情地寫到我們在上海更新幫助棄嬰。

On Dec. 24thcomes the Flea Market. The money we collect this time will be donated to Shanghai Healing Home once again according to the vote by the middle school students. The organization is committed to taking in abandoned disabled babies and provides them with recovery operations based on the funds they get besides raising them. A G1 student wrote about TAS helping the abandoned babies emotionally when given the topic “Shanghai in my eyes” with the material of what we did last year.

這次圣誕義賣有許多孩子們平時創作的作品,同時也歡迎孩子們訂購一些需要的產品進行義賣。學習產品選擇,產品定價,廣告宣傳等市場經濟的基本知識。一,二年級歡迎家長志愿者進班幫助和指導,每班可以有5名志愿者協助。

A lot of creations by students will appear in the Flea Market. Besides, we welcome students to orders some necessary goods for sale. They may learn some basic knowledge in market economy such as product selection, price setting and advertising, etc. G1 and G2 parents are welcomed to give directions at the scene. There is a limit of 5 volunteers for each class. 

義賣期間的貨幣使用更新學校印制的代金券。下周18-20下午3:30-4:00學校門口有財務銷售代金券,盼望家長們踴躍購買,24號下午二點后歡迎家長們來學校用代金券購買孩子們義賣的產品,這樣孩子們就可以通過自己的勞動幫助到有需要的醫治之家的孩子們實現他們的美好夢想!

We will take vouchers as the currency of the Flea Market which will be for sale at the school gate from 3:30 to 4:00 in Dec 18th, 19th, and 20th. We hope you may participate actively! Welcome to purchase students’ products after 2 o’clock on Dec 24thwith the vouchers in your hands so that students have a chance to help those kids in Shanghai Healing Home realize their beautiful dreams with their own efforts.

下周末將進入數九的季節,祝愿大家身體健康!

It’s getting even colder next week. May you all be in good health.
