Friday 26th November

Good afternoon G3 Parents and Families and wishing a Happy Thanksgiving to all of those who celebrate.

As we come towards the end of our third week in the Hybrid model it has been a great time to pause and reflect on our unique journey this year. Starting the year via remote learning and moving into a new model with students learning both in school and at home. It has been lovely to think about what we are thankful for and how lucky we are to be able to adapt to the changing times and continue with our learning. 

We are so proud of what the students have achieved, their resilience and flexibility have been constantly challenged and at each turn they rise to the challenge. This week we have introduced our digital portfolios for term one and reflected on our achievements and updating our goals. 

As part of our UOI students have really begun to show agency as they work together in small groups to design, plan and create a mini organisation. Students have used their passions to inspire their idea for their organisation, took time to think about a creative name and set goals to strive towards. As we look ahead, students will be moving into the planning stage of welcoming visitors (digitally) to take part in their organisation so are having to consider a number of things for this to be successful. 

We would like to thank you all for your continued support in the program and wish you an enjoyable weekend ahead. 

Looking ahead: 

Here you can find the overview for next week and resources:

What we will need for learning next WEEK 16 – 29th Nov – 3rd DEC 21

Please find the planner for Week 13– November 8 – 12  – at this link.

UOI
This week students will finalise their mission statements, using key vocabulary to make them poignant and meaningful. 

Throughout the week students will work on a planning template. This is a plan of what they will be doing step by step when we have visitors (digitally) so all organisation members are knowledgeable in knowing what will happen, what you will need, resources and timings amongst the group.

Questions that need to be thought out and planned for within the organisation.

  • Who will lead this part?
  • What will be shared? 
  • How long will this part take?
  • How will you start your session 
  • What will customers do?
  • What do they need to participate?
  • What resources need to be prepared?
  • How will you end the session?
  • Will there be some kind of reflection to be completed after the session e.g. Google form.

If students have completed all of the above  they will start thinking how they can advertise their organisations e.g. website, flyers etc.

Language – 

Language time this week will be used to support UOI and Portfolio’s. 

Again this week there will be some dedicated time for students to work on their Portfolios. Portfolio templates have been shared in Google Classroom. We are encouraging students to find evidence of their work they want to use in their portfolios

Towards the end of the week if students have finished their planning and designing for their organisations students will look at how they can advertise their organisations. 

Math – 

This week students will be formally introduced to Repeated Addition to solve multiplication problems.

Students will continue to tune in and engage with a range of vocabulary connected to addition and multiplication.

Students will have opportunities to make connections and see the relationship between addition and multiplication.

E.g. Skip counting connections between repeated addition and multiplication.  

original-1741217-1 screenshot-2020-11-16-at-14.26.00_ver_1

Students will revisit the numbers and symbols and see if they can make connections  between repeated addition and multiplication. 

Students will need to justify and prove their findings and solutions to problems.

Weekly mental maths working on their mental agility and confidence in +/-/x  number

ReadingFlight Checks Raz Kids – Class teachers will be chasing up any last minute Flight Checks that need to be completed on Raz Kids 

maxresdefault

Vocabulary Acquisition – students focusing on reading for meaning and noticing any new or unfamiliar vocabulary as they read.

Using tools such as a thesaurus and dictionary to extend and develop understanding of a text.

Asking and answering questions about texts they are reading to build comprehension skills and understanding.

Students will use a range of reading platforms (ORT, library books, Raz and Epic) to read for pleasure at an instructional level.

 

Schedules

Here you can find both the remote learning and the in class learning schedules that we will be starting from Monday. Please note that all specialist classes, apart from Thai, will take place when students are at home. Please see the schedule and if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

Friday 19th November

happy-loy-krathong-festival-travel-thailand-vector-27038345

Good afternoon G3 Parents and Families and Happy Loy Kratong.

It has been so wonderful to see such amazing colours and outfits this week ranging from traditional Thai costume to bright and vibrant shirts. Below you can see a collection of photos celebrating the festival, in the classroom. 

It has been another busy week as we dive deeper into our unit of inquiry and begin finding out about the purpose, vision and mission of organisations within our community. We would like to once again thank Ms Pui and Mr Rob for taking the time to share their story of ‘More Than a Board Game’ as an organisation, where the inspiration came from and their journey. Next week students will be carrying out their own interviews to find out about an organisation that a family member or friend of the family is a part of. Students will be coming home with their own questions to ask about vision, mission and purpose (to give you a heads up).  

This week, we have seen the students settle into learning routines both at home and in the classroom as we continue with our hybrid learning model. Students are building relationships with their peers and adults across the three classes and are enjoying the social aspects of that. Dodgeball was a particular favourite from this week (photos below). 

Have a wonderful weekend ahead and Happy Loy Kratong! 

Check out our photos from the week:

Looking ahead: 

Here you can find the overview for next week and resources: Here

Please find the planner for Week 13– November 8 – 12  – at this link.

UOIThis week we will be using some of our UOI time to Introduce format for Portfolio’s for Term 1. With all groups next week.

We will also be exploring and addressing the following question:
If you were to start your own organization, what would it be? Why? What would the purpose be?

Building on from last week students will get into similar interest groups to begin to decide on a collective what and why for their organisations.  Each idea/group will be represented on the organisation padlet. Students will  connect and collaborate with others to form groups.  Students will  need to establish goals for their groups.

Following on from this students will work towards creating a name and writing a mission statement.
Students will continue to think about and reflect on the following questions.

  • What do organisations do? 
  • What is their purpose?
  • How do you know this? 
  • How does an organisation tell you what they do? How do they communicate this?
  • What structures are in place in these organisations? 
  • What makes an organisation effective?
  • Why do organisations have mission statements? Why are they needed? 
  • What is your mission statement?
  • What makes a great entrepreneur? 

Resources & Inspirations from last week;

Language – 

Last week’s focus was on what makes a great question  and using that knowledge to create questions in anticipation for Mr Rob and Ms Pui’s presentation ‘More than a game cafe’ along with practising our active listening skills when participating in a conversation or interview scenario.

This week we want to continue our work on creating  questions to prepare to interview students’ parents/grandparents about the different  organizations that they work for. 

Students will then have to summarise, present and share their findings via video e.g. Seesaw/Flipgrid etc

Key Questions inquiring into :
What makes a good question?
What do you want to find out?
Which questions are going to help you to get there?

Students will revisit questions starters

  • Students will consider the benefits of posing the following types of questions.  open ended questions 
  • Closed questions
  • Multiple Choice Questions.

MathStudents will check in with their understanding of the +/- strategies explored so far by applying these to solve a range of problems, this will help us to assess where the students are and support next steps moving into repeated addition an multiplication. 

Maths Focus informally moving towards multiplication.

Students will be given several provocations and activities to complete  to build on their number sense and thinking towards multiplication.

Provocations will include.

4e043f2bea139bf8f149f705ae7253ee--number-number-number-sense

  • Can students make connections to arrays and number sentences to represent their rectangles?

ReadingFlight Checks Raz Kids – All students will have a reading assessment on Raz Kids to complete. Groups  1 & 2 will have one session with an adult and the other to complete their flight check. (This maybe done individually with Class teacher)

Vocabulary Acquisition – students focusing on reading for meaning and noticing any new or unfamiliar vocabulary as they read. Using tools such as a thesaurus and dictionary to extend and develop understanding of a text.Asking and answering questions about texts they are reading to build comprehension skills and understanding. Students will use a range of reading platforms (ORT, library books, Raz and Epic) to read for pleasure at an instructional level.

 Good afternoon G3 Parents and Families, 

Wow! What a week! It has been amazing to welcome students back onto campus using our hybrid model. Students returned to their groups and enjoyed a very busy couple of days. It was lovely to see students reconnecting and sharing experiences both in the classroom and on the playground. 

It has also been a busy week online, with the mixing of the hybrid groups, it has been great to see students working together across the classes remotely. Wednesday gives us the opportunity for sharing our passions, library skills, maths challenges and games and reconnecting as a homeroom class. 

We believe it has been a successful start to the hybrid learning, with smooth transitions and we can only see this continuing as the students become more familiar with the new routines both online and in the classroom. 

We would like to take this opportunity again to thank you for your continued support, it couldn’t have happened this way without you guys! 

Have a wonderful weekend ahead! 

First Week of Hybrid!
Please check out just some photos from our first week back 🙂 

The Week Ahead

Here you can find the overview for next week and resources: Here

Please find the planner for Week 13– November 8 – 12  – at this link.

Language This week students will begin to consider what makes a good question, in preparation for conducting interviews with their parents about the different organizations that they are a part of. We will consider; What makes a good question? What do you want to find out? Which questions are going to help you to get there?

The-5-Ws-and-an-H_CLP_web

We will then go on to reflect and evaluate the effectiveness of their questions:
What did you find out?
How did you record your answers?
Which information is relevant or unnecessary?
Students will then use their summarising skills to evaluate their  findings.

Math – This week we will continue to revise the different known methods/strategies we have explored for addition subtraction. Students will apply their skills in adding and subtracting up to 3 digit numbers in a range of problem solving contexts. Students will also begin to reflect on why they have chosen a specific strategy and think about which is the most effective to use. 

In maths next week we will also be carrying out another IXL snapshot, these will be carried out in the classroom on the days students are in school and for group 3, there is a specific time for these to be completed as seen below:

IXL snapshot
Please note: For Group 3, the purpose of the assessment is to check in with student progress, please allow your child to complete independently and refrain from assisting.

UOI – This week we will continue to explore and think about what organisations do, why they do it and where did the idea come from?

We are also thrilled to welcome Ganta’s parents into the classroom (via zoom) to share their story experience of setting up an organisation. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions about the process, why they chose to start this organisation and what their shared vision is. All students from each group will be able to join using the zoom link in the classroom and remotely.

Students will go further to think about what makes an entrepreneur, finding out about some of the youngest entrepreneurs: https://www.businessnewsdaily.com/5051-young-entrepreneurs.html 

Reading – We will continue with our new reading groups next week. Students will continue to participate in 2 live reading sessions a week. For those students in Group 1 & 2, these will take place in school during the days they are on campus and for Group 3, these will happen online, with a teacher, twice over the course of the week. 

Schedules

Here you can find both the remote learning and the in class learning schedules that we will be starting from Monday. Please note that all specialist classes, apart from Thai, will take place when students are at home. Please see the schedule and if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

The Week Ahead

Please find the planner for Week 13– November 8 – 12  – at this link.

Language –Students will  continue to build on  their  skills of summarising, text, articles, news, vidoes. By identifying the key events and how they can be reworded using carefully chosen words to keep the sentences succinct.
Students will explore:

> What are the crucial details necessary for supporting the ideas?
> What information is irrelevant or unnecessary?
> Have them use keywords or phrases to identify the main points from the text.

Math – This week we will revisit the different known methods/strategies we have explored for addition subtraction. Students will also be introduced to word problems. They will have the task of finding key information, such as what is  the number sentence?  And be introduced to the systematic method ‘CUBES’ when approaching mathematical word problems: original-1956315-1

UOI – This week we are very excited to start diving into our new Unit of Inquiry, last week we revisited what it means to organise ourselves (verb) and went on to make connections to what an organisation (noun) is. Students came up with a wonderful range of different ideas about various organisations and began to sort these into different types of organisations.

Next week we will be taking a step back to look at our central idea Mission statements provide a shared goal for organisations to strive towards’ and how organisations use a mission statement to drive their actions and decision making. 

Reading – We will begin our new reading groups next week. Students will continue to participate in 2 live reading sessions a week. For those students in Group 1 & 2, these will take place in school during the days they are on campus and for Group 3, these will happen online, with a teacher, twice over the course of the week.

This week has been a big step forward for many of our students where they began to put together the different things that we have been working on during this unit to create their own pieces of work.a

We asked the students to share their passion with us by choosing a digital tool, and then thinking about the audience who they want to connect with. A lot of the students amazed us with some of the things they shared.

 

Get Epic Hours

We have had several questions from parents and students about why Get Epic is asking for you to pay money. Epic is free to use during school hours, so probably from 6am – 3pm Monday-Friday. If you try to access it after school hours, it’ll ask you to buy a family account.

Help Desk Padlet

As we move forward, with a growth mindset, please remember that learning systems and routines take time to establish so it is perfectly expected for students to be asking questions and sometimes being not sure what to do.

The Help Desk Padlet is always monitored during school hours, and we try to respond as quickly as possible. It’s also a good chance for students to help one another if they know the answer to a question.

Weekly Parent Meeting

For parents, we have a weekly meeting on Wednesday mornings at 8:00am. The link will be sent out in an email as it is against policy to post it in a public forum. If you ever have any questions or concerns, feel free to pop-in at that time and talk to the teachers.

If you have any urgent questions or concerns, you can always email your  homeroom teacher directly.

The Week Ahead

Please find the planner for Week 6 – September 27 – October 1 – at this link.  Our new unit is about how “Digital Media provides us with many ways to express ourselves.”

Language – We will be starting our narrative writing which will continue for the next week and a half.

Math – We will focus on rounding and greater than/less than.

UOI – We will focusing on how to choose the correct digital tool and way of communication depending on the intended audience.

Reading – We will being doing reading groups next week. In general, students will usually have two days of guided reading group with their homeroom teacher and their EA. The other three days will usually require the students to complete independent reading tasks.

Friday, September 10, 2021

This past week we continued to find out more about the different digital media platforms that we can use to express ourselves. On Thursday, we again had a five teacher workshops where students could learn how to use a new digital tool

In math, we continued to build upon what we learned about patterns and began even and odd numbers. The students understanding seemed to grow from “even numbers are 2,4,6, 8” to even numbers can be divided in half into equal groups, while odd numbers will always have an extra one.

In language, we continued building the necessary foundation the students will need to write their own stories later in the unit. We focused on how to be more descriptive in our settings, and the students progressed from identifying adjectives and drawing a described setting to writing their own descriptive setting.

Here is some amazing work that are students created and shared using our new digital tools –

 

Online Behavior

In general, our students have been very responsible and respectful when writing online. We’ve noticed the students language and tone progressing to a more professional tone in their comments and messages. While there are still the occasional hiccups, we hope you take the time to ask you child about proper online communication and then praise them for doing so well.

Get Epic Hours

We have had several questions from parents and students about why Get Epic is asking for you to pay money. Epic is free to use during school hours, so probably from 6am – 3pm Monday-Friday. If you try to access it after school hours, it’ll ask you to buy a family account.

 

Help Desk Padlet

As we move forward, with a growth mindset, please remember that learning systems and routines take time to establish so it is perfectly expected for students to be asking questions and sometimes being not sure what to do.

The Help Desk Padlet is always monitored during school hours, and we try to respond as quickly as possible. It’s also a good chance for students to help one another if they know the answer to a question.

Weekly Parent Meeting

For parents, we have a weekly meeting on Wednesday mornings at 8:00am. The link will be sent out in an email as it is against policy to post it in a public forum. If you ever have any questions or concerns, feel free to pop-in at that time and talk to the teachers.

If you have any urgent questions or concerns, you can always email your  homeroom teacher directly.

The Week Ahead

Please find the planner for Week 6 – September 13-17  – at this link.  Our new unit is about how “Digital Media provides us with many ways to express ourselves.”

Math – We will continue to focus on building our foundational number skills.

UOI – We will focusing on how to choose the correct digital tool and way of communication depending on the intended audience.

Reading – We will being doing reading groups next week. In general, students will usually have two days of guided reading group with their homeroom teacher and their EA. The other three days will usually require the students to complete independent reading tasks.
