Keeping the community spirit alive even at home
As you can see from above the house spirit was greatly in evidence on Friday with our house challenges. Well done to all the winners above and special congratulations to Qing Qing and her family for a wonderful effort. We are looking forward to our next event online. Watch this space to hear all about it.
Last week the students showed both their independence and thinking skills by solving shape activities building towers and naming all the properties of the shapes they used. This week apart from their Maths work on IXL they will be attempting to create a Rube Goldberg machine this will involve those same creative thinking skills and will be made better by continuous practice, we look forward to seeing the results.
In Literacy the students have been given two reading comprehension tasks to complete based upon their individual reading level. We look forward to seeing who can read both the texts and questions carefully. The class stories are reaching an end now and choosing will begin in G5A for a new story to be read. I wonder what will be chosen?
The students are still working on their exhibition work , making sure that they have completed all the tasks on their checklist to the best of their abilities. In reference to this, the task this week is to decide the difference between quantity and quality. Some students may have lots of work ready for their displays but what we really want them to be thinking about is the quality of this work. Work which has taken five minutes is rarely of good quality so this week we want the students to review all of their work and to decide how they can improve the quality of the work they want to exhibit.
At the end of this week we will be saying goodbye to three grade 5 students, Prajwal, Namo and Yuri all of whom are relocating to other countries. We are sad to see them go but wish them well in the future.
