This week we’ve been bringing our current unit Government systems influence the lives of citizens to a close. It’s been a short but sweet unit and although our time was limited the students made many powerful connections to their exhibition inquiries and current affairs. We also had the pleasure of a presentation from Khun Pan, Melvin’s mum, who gave us an insight into Government Systems in Thailand.
Our current Maths unit on Shape and Space is involving many explorations into connecting 3D objects with their nets and other 2D representations and learning to describe, classify and model 3D shapes.
Looking forward, this year’s MAPS testing begins on May 13th and the schedule is as follows. To create the best testing environments possible, each class will be split into 2 groups and each group will sit the test in a separate room. This is solely to help create the quietest environment so your child has every opportunity to do their best. If you have any questions about the schedule, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
As previously posted, preparation and practice is always a great idea and here are some links that can be accessed at home to support the preparation we are doing in class.
