Reading Websites

Audible.com have just opened up huge swathes of their library for free. There are all sorts of things on the site and there is no pay wall and one doesn’t have to put in any credit card details. 

The address is as follows: stories.audible.com

Virtual Field Trips

One important point to remember is that students do not have to complete all learning engagements that are assigned in their activities section each day. If your child falls behind one day they can catch up with past activities in the following days or if needs be skip them completely. 

If you need any help or advice from your teacher please feel free to email us all directly.

Warm regards,

G1 Weekly Update 23rd March 2020

 

Dear G1 Parents,

Reflecting on our first week of online learning. The students seem to have been really engaged in their learning adventures and we have had many many completed activities being uploaded onto our class journals.

We would like to thank all parents for assisting and supporting their child in this process. 

We will continue this week with the format that we have developed from last week, it seems to have a good balance and the students seem to have enjoyed the engagements.

One important point to remember is that students do not have to complete all learning engagements that are assigned in their activities section each day. If your child falls behind one day they can catch up with past activities in the following days or if needs be skip them completely. 

If you need any help or advice from your teacher please feel free to email us all directly.

New G1 Unit of Inquiry – Structures

We are introducing our new Unit of Inquiry this week: “Architectural structures reflect purpose, history and available materials.” One way we want the students to “tune in” to the Unit is by creating and building. Doing so also gives children opportunities to try out new ideas, new ways of thinking and problem-solving. It builds our brains, enhances our understanding of math and science and supports healthy social and emotional learning.

Central Idea

Architectural structures reflect purpose, history and available materials.

Lines of Inquiry

  • Purpose and use of buildings
  • Changes in buildings over time
  • Influences on building design

Guiding questions

What could each building be used for?

What do you think each building is made of?

How old do you think each building is?

If any of you have some experience or connections with this new unit please get in touch with your class teacher as we would like to involve you expertise in the teaching and learning of this unit.

Thanks again for all your support last week and the coming weeks.

Warm regards,

The G1 Team
