Y10 Orientation Session Gave New Students a Taster of Things to Come

10年级学科简介课程

 

为了帮助新10年级的学生更全面的了解IB课程以及选课事宜,IB高中部于628630日开展了为期三天的课程简介课程。

The IB high school held a three-day Orientation session from 28th to 30th June to help new pre-IB Grade Ten students understand the course as well as do their subject selections.

 

按照安排,全体10年级同学于6275点半之前到达学校,并在11年级学长志愿者的带领下入住宿舍。稍作休整后,参加了由英文学科组织的英语测试。IB萧校长就三天的活动进行了简介,并希望新生们能尽快适应,科学选课。

On 27th June, all new Grade Ten students arrived at school at 5:30pm and were led to their dormitories by the Grade Eleven volunteers. Once they were nicely settled, they took part in an English diagnostic test to put them in the right English classes. The IB Principal, Joel Seow, then gave them a welcome talk on the activities planned for them in the coming days.

 

628-30日白天,同学们有序进入课堂,开始了与任课老师的第一次亲密接触,各科老师都使出浑身解数,深入浅出,旁征博引,力求在有限的时间内,让新生对所学科目有清晰的认识和理解,以便为今后的选课做好充分准备。在听取了各科老师的专业意见,并结合自身的兴趣以及今后的职业选择之后,学生们按所选科目聆听各科老师的学科简介。

The next 3 days, students reported to the IB classrooms and met their teachers for the first time. Subject teachers all tried their best in the subject-introduction sessions to ‘attract’ the students to their courses, and give them preparation for what to expect in those classes in future. Students then made their subject choices from what they had heard as well as considering their interests and directions.

 

语言组(第一、二学科组)则带领学生体会字间生金,行间润玉的语言的情感和力量,还有学习方法(ATL)技能。

个体与社会学科组(第三学科组)在经济和商务管理老师的指引下,以多种方式展示学习成果;海报简洁高效,紧扣经济生活,乐高积木妙趣横生,充分满足消费者心理需要。

艺术组(第六学科组)则带领学生步入艺术殿堂,触摸艺术,体会线条之美,色彩之繁丰瑰丽。

核心问题研究课程老师则带领新生们体验在跨学科学习中批判性思考的乐趣。

In the sessions, Group 1 and 2 language teachers organised active activities for the students to appreciate the beauty of words and the ATL (Approaches to Learning) skills in the IB course. Group 3 ‘Individuals and Societies’ teachers tried to use posters and lego bricks to illustrate consumers’ psychological need in order to offer a visual representation of what students would learn in Business and Economics. Group 4 Science teachers introduced students to the particles and atoms of matter so as to give them a taster of Physics and Chemistry courses. Group 5 Maths teachers guided students in using mathematical knowledge to solve problems between interest rates and mortgages. Group 6 Art teachers showed students the basics of what to expect in the Visual Arts and Music courses.Finally, Essential Study (ES)teacher let students enjoy the critical thinking in interdisciplinary learning.

627-29日晚上,新生们在学长志愿者的带领下,进行了各种有趣的互动活动,通过这些活动,增进彼此了解。当然,本次活动的顺利进行也离不开全体11年级志愿者的帮助和策划。他们积极参与,发挥榜样作用,在师生互动时间,积极组织各种活动,主题表演惟妙惟肖,猜字谜活动趣味无穷,识人环节拉近距离,赢得在场师生的阵阵喝彩。

In the evenings of 27th to 29th June, Grade Eleven volunteers arranged all kinds of ice-breaking and bonding activities for the new Grade Tens to enable them to make friends and feel more comfortable in their new department. Special thanks ought to be given to the Grade Eleven students for spending so much time and effort in planning and executing all the games and activity sessions that involved performances, riddles and team-building which were extremely successful and appreciated!


值得一提的是,除了学科简介外,IB高中部还为新生们提供了专业的升学指导和丰富的CAS活动介绍。所有老师通力合作,力臻完美,力求最大限度的为学生的IB旅程保驾护航。

祝贺本次新生介绍课圆满成功,预祝新10年级全体同学再接再厉,在即将到来的IB的学习之旅中,长风破浪,直挂云帆!

Another aspect worth mentioning is the professional careers counselling and CAS activities introductory sessions that were also provided to the students.

We wish them all the very best in their holistic growth ahead!!
