This week has been all about Grade 3 taking action. As part of our UOI we have been exploring what it means to take action and what it can look like. This week, we saw many students taking action in different ways. We found out that we have 3 shining musicians, Peace and Prai who brought in their violins and wowed us with their talent.
We would really like to encourage sharing of passions and hobbies, so if you have something you would like to share with the class or grade please let us know.
In other news for taking action, Eli & Mia from Grade 3 shared their passion for the Amazon Rainforest and raised awareness of some of the horrors happening to it. They organised a group of Grade 3’s to share the message with the whole PYP in the assembly on Friday asking for people to help by planting plants at home. In addition to this they have organised for a group to make and sell bracelets at 25baht next Friday to raise money to send to an organisation who are battling the fires there.
This week we are starting to wrap up our Who we are unit and beginning to tune into our next, How we organise ourselves. Before finishing we reflected on what our values and beliefs are and how they impact the action that we take. For example, Malala believed that every child has the right to education regardless of their gender. She then took and continues to take action to change this around the world. After writing their own values and beliefs, we shared these as a grade and added our belief leaf to the Grade 3 values tree.
We have been carrying out a longer term inquiry math project exploring different types of data and different methods of collected and presenting information. We have begun an exciting inquiry into the amount of money spent by an average family in countries around the world! Thank you to all of you who participated with this as part of last week’s home work.
Grade 3A: Swimming time will be changed from Friday’s to Monday’s for the rest of the year and therefore students will need to bring their swimming kit in on a Mondayfrom now on. Both class 3B & 3C will continue to have their swimming lessons on a Friday.
Homework has been sent home today and can now also be accessed on the homework link from this blog.
As always if you have any queries of questions please let us know via email.
Looking forward to another great week.
