Since Christmas, we have been working on our new unit How We Express Ourselves exploring ‘Digital media changes the way we communicate’. Students have been comparing how digital platforms change how we communicate and who we communicate with. In addition to this, we have been learning all about poetry and how we can use word choice to express our feelings, ideas and experiences.
This week we are combining all things expression and diving deeper into effective communication through the sharing of our own poems. We will be working on communication skills leading up to a presentation of our poems on Thursday morning. Unfortunately, as per the restrictions of COVID, we are unable to invite parents personally, however we are looking into the possibility of sharing this presentation using a Youtube link. Please look out for an email in the next couple of days for more information about this. We will be starting at 8:30am and expect the presentation to last around 30minutes.
Chinese New Year was a great success and thank you to everyone who made donations to our Good Luck Tree, all the money raised will be counted and given to ‘The Hub’ this week who have been looking after children who are less fortunate and always in need of help to do so. The atrium was filled with colour and it was brilliant to see so many students in traditional Chinese clothing or red.
In other news, we continue working on our decimal numbers in maths and thank you for all your help with finding lots of decimal numbers around the home. It was a pleasure looking through these and reflecting on how decimal numbers around used in everyday life. This week we will begin to work on applying our knowledge of decimal numbers to compare, order and begin simple calculations to problem solve.
We thank you for your support with helping our students understand the importance of staying vigilante with mask wearing, sanitizing and social distancing as we continue to navigate this second wave. Please keep up your efforts, it is a huge help to us.
