Songkran Celebrations

April is the hottest month of the year in Northern Thailand, and so it’s fitting that the Thai New Year, which takes place 13th April, is celebrated with a water festival known as Songkran.

On Wednesday 6th April, the students and teachers at Singapore International School, SISB, Chiang Mai celebrated Songkran at school with traditional Thai games and a huge water fight. 

As you can see from the pictures below, everyone had a lot of fun… and everyone got soaked !!

School is now closed for the holidays and will reopen Wednesday 19th April.

STELLAR Literacy – Stories for young learners

STELLAR is a Singaporean approach to support students develop their literacy skills and a love of reading.

In a typical STELLAR lesson the teacher introduces the story and reads to the class from a Big Book.  The teacher then focused on the language items, structures and skills explicitly, including concepts of print, phonics and grammar.

Finally the teacher introduces follow up activities such as drama and art, based on the content of the story.

Here are a selection of the most popular STELLAR story books.
