Pre-IBDP Orientation Week Wraps up Term on a High

10年级预备班期末集训周完美落幕

 

The new pre-IBDP Grade 10 students were invited to SIPFLS for an Orientation Week for half a week, from 27th to 29th June. During the week, subject teachers gave them introductory sessions on their respective subjects to help with subject selection, the Grade 11 students promoted their CAS clubs to recruit members, and a series of House Team activities were held to strengthen the bonds between the teachers and students. The week culminated in a Parents’ Conference for the Grade 11s where report cards were distributed and students sent home on a high.

6月27-29日这三天,新一届的10年级IB预备班的同学们参加了园外的集训周。集训期间,各学科老师向新同学做了科目介绍,帮助他们选修学科。作为学长的11年级的同学为招募社员也向学弟学妹们做了CAS社团的介绍。同时,学部还举行了一系列的团队活动,加强师生间的亲密关系。最终,集训周以召开11年级同学的家长会而顺利结束。

The week started off with a great evening on Sunday. Grade 10 students met one another mostly for the first time and played games in their home classes using their creativity to complete a task using body language only. Monday morning saw the students placed into their various House Teams, where they were given the task of designing and creating a boat made out of recycled materials for a human boat race the next evening. Monday evening also saw the students get together to complete their boats and have a great time choosing a House Captain and deciding on a House slogan, cheer and icon. They also had a Careers session with our University Counsellor who advised them on subject options according to their future aims and destinations.

集训周在周日精彩的晚间活动上拉开了序幕。大部分10年级同学是初次见面,他们在班上做了一些游戏,调动创造力仅用肢体语言去完成一个任务。周一早上,同学们则分成了不同的团队,为了准备次日晚上的团队竞赛做准备,每队利用可循环材料设计和制作了一艘船。同学们齐心协力,“造船工程”于周一晚上顺利竣工,他们也推选出了每对的队长,决定了每队的口号、拉拉队的欢呼词和队标。大学辅导老师也向新生们做了相关介绍,建议他们如何根据自己未来的目标选修科目。

During the day time of Monday to Wednesday, both Grade 10 and 11 students attended academic sessions on all their subjects to either get a taster or collect their final exam papers back. Grade 10 students, in particular, were introduced to the IBDP’s style of teaching and learning, as well as the key elements of the course such as the Learner Profiles and CAS clubs. In some subjects, they were also given a diagnostic test to put them in the appropriate classes when term starts.

周一到周三的白天,各科老师向10年级新生做了科目介绍,也向11年级的同学们讲评了期末试卷。老师们还专门向新生们介绍了国际文凭大学预科项目(IBDP)的教学风格和重要的概念,如国际文凭学习者培养目标和CAS社团。新生们也接受了某些科目的预测,旨在新学期进入适合他们自己的班级学习。

Tuesday evening was the highlight of the week as everybody stayed till past 8pm participating in the House boat races and other inter-House games. After a series of tense competitions, the Blue House/Dolphins emerged the champions. The teachers joined in and staged a game of charades for the students to guess as well. At the end of the evening, everybody helped themselves to snacks and drinks and took team photos to remember the night.

周二晚上是最令人兴奋的,因为大家在学校的室内体育馆进行了丰富多彩的竞赛活动和游戏,直到晚上8点才告结束。经过了一系列紧张的竞赛,蓝队(海豚队)胜出,荣登冠军宝座。老师们也参与到活动中,通过肢体语言表演让同学们去竞猜。临近活动结束之时,大家尽情享用点心和饮料,还拍了团队照,为这个美好的夜晚画上了一个圆满的句号。

On Wednesday, the IB Principal had a session with the parents of the Grade 10 students which enabled them to understand the course better and clear up any questions they have. Grade 10 students were then taken home to do their holiday homework for the subjects they had chosen.

周三,学部召开了10年级新生家长会,IB校长给家长们做了重要讲话,帮助家长们更好地理解IBDP课程的理念,并解答了家长们提出的各种问题。新生们则收到了他们选读科目的暑假作业和家长们一起离校回家。

On Thursday, the teachers met with the parents of Grade 11 students and talked to them about their children’s performance in all the different subjects this semester.  They finalised Standard and Higher Level (SL & HL) subjects for the next school year and collected their final semester report cards.

周四,学部召开了11年级家长会,老师们向家长们汇报了他们的孩子在本学期的学习表现。同学们也确定了普通课程(SL)和高级课程(HL)的修读意向,并收到了期末成绩报告。

Lastly, Yr 11 students had their second Physical Fitness test on the final day of the semester. Generally they have improved on their performance in the various rounds of assessment from the last semester’s test. Some still need to work on their physical fitness during the upcoming holidays.

最后,11年级的同学则完成了本学期的第二次体能测试。普遍而言,同学们在各环节的评估中有了提高。某些同学则仍需在假期中努力提升体能素质。

On the whole, both batches of students had a lot of fun this last week of term either participating in the orientation activities or wrapping up the school year. When it came to a close, the feedback was generally positive and everybody felt more geared up for the new semester to come!

总而言之,这两届学生在期末的最后一周内过得很愉快,无论是参与集训活动还是度过学年末的时光。临近集训结束,同学们给出的反馈普遍是积极正面的,大家感到要为新学期做好准备。
