So much has happened this week!
We have had the provocation of our new unit on Climate Change. Mr Eric and Ms Lindsay joined the grade 5 teachers to present 5 different activities to give the students the opportunity f to become more aware of the differing aspects of this very current and emotive topic. We will be investigating more in the coming weeks based upon the central idea of “People have a responsibility to address environmental change’ looking in depth at our lines of inquiry ‘ Causes and effects of environmental change, Responses to environmental change. We will be studying this through the key concepts of Causation, Responsibility and perspective.
Also this week, many of the children reflected and shared their learning about their Migration unit,with each other, in a variety of ways including posters, videos, quizzes and slide show presentations. The students worked very hard on this and have reflected and discussed how they can improve their presentation skills in readiness for their exhibition later in the school year.
In Literacy we have now moved from diaries to persuasive writing and so will be working on the features of this style of writing for the next few weeks.
In Maths, we are continuing to focus on time and in particular how to measure and calculate time passing between one event and another.
Friday was a very exciting day!
First we listened to some melodious singing in the Thai assembly hosted again by our very own House Captains and Assembly Squad.
Then we had a very exciting visit from two performers who gave us an insight into their lives and the qualities needed to be successful in theatre.
The Handball tournament came next, what an exciting afternoon with all students doing their best to play well and support their houses.
Another way in which the students can gain housepoints is to enter the House Poster Competition based around the six transdisciplinary themes. Create a poster remembering to have a balanced design, creative use of collage, use realistic drawings and a range of hot or cool colours and make sure that the theme of the poster is clearly defined. We will be eagerly waiting to see them.
Next week we have a Primary school book fair. from 16- 18th. A great opportunity to get holiday reading books.
