    Parent-Teacher conferences are scheduled for October 19-20!  This is a great time to connect with your child's teacher and find out both the progress your child has made as well as how to support their learning at school and outside of the classroom.

    This fall QSI Zhuhai will use an online scheduling program to conveniently arrange the conference times you want.  Please visit www.ptcfast.com/schools/QSI to view the sign-up page.  If it is your first visit to the page, you will need to complete a brief registration process.  

    If you have difficulty with the online scheduling system, you can view a brief video tutorial here.  We look forward to seeing you on October 19-20th! 

  • 7- and 8-year-olds Build a Rube Goldberg Machine!

    28-Nov-16 | Timmy & Chris

    Mr. Hough’s 7- and 8-year-old students have recently finished creating their Rube Goldberg machines. The Rube Goldberg machines are currently located on the third floor next to the library, and they look awesome!

    We interviewed several of the students and asked them a series of questions. The questions were: What is a Rube Goldberg machine? What did you learn? Let’s see what they had to say! In response to our first question, all students were ablet to explain perfectly what a Rube Goldberg machine was.

     

     

    One of the students answered, “The Rube Goldberg machine is many different things and actions that do something like pop a balloon or pour water.” Another student said, “A Rube Goldberg machine is a compound machine made up of many simple machines.”

    For our second question, we received a similar response among students. They stated, “We made many different simple machines and put them together to do something at the end.” Another student responded, “We did this project with partners, so we learned how to interact with others.”

    We were surprised by the sophisticated answers they gave us about the Rube Goldberg machines. You wouldn’t expect these answers from students at such a young age! 

  • Learning About Colors!

    08-Nov-16 | cliff-geispoage

    In the 3 year old class the children have enjoying various projects to learn about colour mixing!

    Through books, songs and art we have focused on the mixture of primary colours to create secondary colours. The children had lots of fun hand painting their colour mix rainbow, seeing their own hands creating new colours. They used their hand prints to create the colour mix formulas for their display wall. 

    An experiment using tissue paper with a different colour each end – showed us how the colours merged overnight to create secondary colours. 

    The children have used their colour mixing skills to paint their Fall festival craft – ‘Mad Scientist’ potion bottles. The children enjoyed mixing up their own favorite colours and creating new ones.
