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>

ACT?JUSTLY

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.

家長每周更新 12.3-12.7 Parent Update

親愛的家長們:大家好!

Good day, dear parents,

過去的一周上海陡然降溫,然而校園里老師們,孩子們的學習熱情不減反增!

The temperature has dropped dramatically this week, while the heat of passion in learning never fades! 

子曰:“歲寒,然后知松柏之后雕也?!?(《論語·子罕第九》)神奇的大自然每一季都有每一季的光芒與美好,在瑞雪中孕育著新的生命!最神奇的是孩子們生命的成長,他們的靈性和美好常常讓我贊嘆!有些孩子突然間學習勤奮了,有些孩子突然間懂得自己的責任了,有些孩子突然間開始為同學們主動服務了。在更新這樣一個”追求真理,追求卓越,相互尊重,相互影響,彼此合一,服務社會”的價值觀的每日沖刷中,不知不覺中孩子們開始閃閃發光,一束束獨特的光芒,十分美妙!

The Confucius once said, “only in cold days can we realize the vitality of pines and cypresses.” (the Analects of Confucius, Chapter Zihan, Verse 9) The magical nature nurtures its treasures of every season at the right time and even bears new lives in the freezing days! The most amazing thing in the world is the growth of children whose spirit and beauty surprise me from time to time. Some of them cast themselves into studying all of a sudden, some get to know their responsibilities at a certain moment, and some start to serve others initiatively at some turning point which has never been expected. Our students are shining out unconsciously after being soaked in the value of TAS that we value truth, excellence, respect, impact, unification and society service. Those are the lights which beautify the world.

這個月的品格主題是”慷慨”。

The character theme this month is generosity.

阿姨們說服務這樣一群孩子,再苦再累也值得,因為經常會有孩子們用自己制作的賀卡感謝阿姨。

Ayis said it was worthwhile to serve these children no matter how tiring because there were always some students who made cards and thanked them.

二年級的老師過生日,孩子們帶來了生日蛋糕,謝謝家長們的預備和愛的表達!!溫馨提示:孩子們帶給老師生日蛋糕只限十二月圣誕季,平日里請不要這么安排,謝謝??!

Students brought birthday cake for a G2 teacher last week. Thank parents for your preparation and the expression of love! Here’s a friendly reminder to all of you: it’s a bless for teachers to enjoy the birthday cakes brought by students, but please do not do that except the Christmas December. Thank you all!

好老師才能造就好學校!過去的一周,老師們互相磨課,公開課幾乎每天都有。上公開課的老師們精心準備,從生動性,理解性,啟發性多角度準備教學資料,安排教學活動,幫助學生學習到新的知識,培養孩子們的思考和表達能力!但是上完公開課后,總有同仁給到更棒的建議,互相雕琢,受益非淺!

A good school comes from great teachers! In the past week, our teachers observed and commented on each other’s classes and we had open classes almost every day. The teachers who gave open class were so well prepared. They collected teaching materials, arranged teaching activities, helped students to acquire new knowledge and cultivated their ability in thinking and expressing vividly and enlighteningly. After the classes, some teachers gave feedbacks to help them be better.

藝術是人們對于自身精神與情感的抒發與表達,真正的藝術能夠陶冶情操、培養性情。更新很重視孩子們的藝術教育,以前家長信中介紹了低年級的藝術教學,今天給大家介紹高年級的教學內容。

Art is a fine way for people to show their spirits and emotions. True art can not only cultivate the taste but also develop the character. TAS values the art education very much. We’ve mentioned the art education of lower grades before and now comes that of the higher ones.

高年級的ART課上同學們學會了很多關于繪畫與綜合材料運用的技巧,這學期已經嘗試創作了砂紙畫、點畫、版畫、蝶骨巴特工藝、連續紋樣;在非洲主題教學中學生制作了非洲部落面具、項圈、獅子這些具有非洲特點的作品;圣誕主題教學中學生動手制作了漂亮的圣誕裝飾品。在學習過程中學生們的審美和動手能力都得到了很大的提高,并對藝術創作產生了濃厚的興趣??粗⒆觽儩M墻的藝術創作,幸福滿滿!

Students have learnt many skills in drawing and the use of comprehensive materials in the senior grades’ art classes. They have tried sandpaper painting, stippling, printmaking, butterfly-bone barter and continuous patterns. In the theme of Africa, middle school students made African tribal masks, neck rings and lions which shows distinct African features. When it came to the Christmas, middle school students made a lot of excellent handmade decorations. Students’ taste and manipulative ability are trained during the learning process. Besides, their interest in art elevates as well. We feel fulfilled every time we look at the art creations on the wall.

下雪了,大家注意保暖!

Keep warm in the gorgeous snow!

祝福大家平安喜樂!

May you be filled with peace and joy!

食品安全教育活動 Food Safety Education Event

 

更新學校一年級的同學們于11月27日前往宿予民宿參加了一堂別開生面的食育課程。他們先觀看學習了水稻的生長,接著前往水稻田,近距離觀察并參與了收割、晾曬、篩種、研磨米漿、糙米去殼。孩子們在對農業產生濃厚興趣的同時感受到了耕作的辛勞,明白了食物的來之不易。這正契合我們學校所倡導的目標:培養具有國際化視野,傳統文化根基的服務型領導者。

G1 students of TAS went to SUYU for a spectacular food education course on Nov. 27th. First, they watched and learned the growth of rice paddy. Then, they went to the field, observed and participated in collecting, sun-drying, filtrating, grinding, and shelling. The students understood the hard work of farming and the preciousness of food with the growth of their interest in agriculture. The activity really fit our goal: to cultivate servant leaders who are equipped with both international and traditional cultural experiences.

2018學年運動會 Sports Day 2018

上周五學生們參加了一年一度的運動會,全天進行了多項個人及團隊比賽。一些孩子自發制作了鼓舞人心的標語為同伴加油鼓勁。我們為他們的拼搏與汗水,以及他們的體育精神感到無比驕傲!

This past Friday students took part in our annual Sports Day! Students competed in various individual and team events throughout the day . Some students even made signs for their fellow classmates in order to cheer them on. We could not be more proud of all of their efforts and sportsmanship!
