Welcome to the International School of Tanganyika’s Grade 1 Team Website. You can come here to get a general idea of what your child is doing in Grade 1 at IST. Please note that the teachers do differentiate the work in order to challenge each child individually so your child may not be working specifically on what is posted here.
Come out and support IST students in Grades 3, 4 & 5 as they showcase their learning in Music.
The concert starts at 7:30AM in the Elementary Hall. We hope to see you there!

Grade 1 Team
Swimmers in Grade 1 are invited to try out for the IST Swim Squad that will take part in the International Schools’ Sports Weekend here in May. Children who can swim 25m (one length) in two different strokes are eligible for try-outs.
Try-outs will take place on Tuesday 23rd April from 2.45pm to 3.30pm, after activities. Any children who are interested but who are not in ASA’s on that day can go straight to the pool at 1.55pm – Ms Aisha will be there to supervise them until the start. Children who have ASA’s on Tuesday should go to their regular activity first.
More information about Swim Squad and the forthcoming events will be available on the day. See you there!

Dev, a student from 1A demonstrates to his class how to use Scratch. Scratch is a computer programming language developed by MIT. This student took the initiative to learn the software, practice at home for a few weeks, and was then able to share his knowledge with his peers.
Below is a video clip of part of his demonstration. Very impressive work Dev!!
(Sadly, my filming skill leave a lot to be desired)
