Don’t forget that MAP tests continue this week. It’s a great time to be thinking carefully about having a healthy diet at home, so please get involved with your child’s homework this week. Homework is due next Wednesday 16th October because of the holiday on the 14th to commemorate King Rama IX.
In the last 2 weeks before the October break we are wrapping up our Sharing the Planet unit and assessing our understanding of the Central Idea and Lines of Inquiry.
In Literacy we have been nurturing passions in ourselves and others by writing and sharing How-To guides to our favourite activities with a focus on our learning objectives of learning how to write to inform and following the writing process. In Swimming lessons we have been filming our swimming and setting personal step by step goals to develop our skills.
We are combining this with a development of our Research Skills and exploring the importance of using keywords, doing our research on trusted sites (such as Go Grolier Go and Wonderopolis) and taking notes in our own words.
In UOI lessons we have been exploring the effects of Environmental Interactions and answering questions like “Why did they parachute cats into Borneo?” Miaow!
In Maths we have been busy assessing our progress with modelling addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and collecting data, displaying in graphs and interpreting data to make conclusions.
Have a great week.
