This week we have started to explore data handling, what it is and it’s purpose. Students have brainstormed what it means and different ways data and information can be represented. Making connections to our current unit of inquiry ‘Who We Are’, students are looking into how the statistics of children’s access to rights, around the world, can be represented. We have started an inquiry into weekly food budgets around the world and ways we can represent this data.
Please can you support us with this by sharing weekly food budgets with your children, it has been added as a task on the weekly home learning grid.
Students are really engaged with learning the inspiring story of Malala and the courageous action she took to ensure equality of rights in her community. Every child has the right to education. This week, we will begin to dive deeper into the story and reflect on how these events impacted her life, beginning to share this understanding and compassion through their first person writing.
Other notices and information:
We have lots of different equipment and kit coming into school, please can you make sure that anything being brought into school is clearly named; PE kit, recorder, pencil cases etc.
Bottle Tops: Dot Day Art Installation:
As part of our creative curriculum, Mr Matt will be raising awareness of reusing plastic by asking students to each bring in a plastic bottle top. More information will be sent out closer to the time, however if you could start saving them, we would really appreciate it. We will set up a deposit box in the shared space so students can begin to bring these in.
We have been so impressed with the quality of the home learning that came back last week, so a big thank you for all your support with that. Home work will now be sent weekly on a Monday and due on the Friday. The Home Learning Grid is accessible each week in the link on the right side of this blog.
We are looking forward to another busy week ahead and as always if you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.
