UPDATE: MAPS summaries are now available on your child’s Managebac Portfolio page.
We hope you had a wonderful break! The students have come back full of festive energy and we are busy making preparations for Friday’s activities. Please remember, if you have any reservations at all about your child taking part, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.
This week we are wrapping up our second unit Human migration affects communities, cultures and individuals and students are being invited to share their enduring understandings from the unit’s inquiries.
In Maths we are switching back to a focus on how the base 10 place value system extends infinitely in two directions allowing us to explore how to read, write and model addition and subtraction of integers (negative numbers). We will also be inquiring into the measurement of time while investigating how to interpret and use timetables locally and globally under the conceptual understanding that conversion of units and measurements allows us to make sense of the world we live in.
As we move into our third unit our reading and writing focusses will switch to non-fiction. Please help us to ensure that your child maintains a balance to their reading at home – it is helpful for all students to spend time reading both fiction and non-fiction books and our library has a great range of both genres.
Have a great week!
