Good afternoon G3 Parents and Families,
We have lots of exciting information to share with you in this week’s blog post about what to expect for returning students for next week as well as sharing what we will have been learning this week and looking ahead to next.
Before diving into what is happening in school, we would just like to remind you all that through all these changes that you are very much supported and our priority is the safety and wellbeing of our students and the community. If you have any questions, worries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact anyone of the G3 team (email addresses can be found at the end of this post.
We cannot wait to welcome back our students and h0pe for a smooth and successful transition.
Start of Hybrid Learning Model:
This week, there have been a range of documents shared along with meetings the leadership team to share the upcoming changes with you. Here you can find the slideshow which was shared at this time:
We have also shared information with the students today about what to expect next week and the slides from this session can be found here:
The Week Ahead
Please find the planner for Week 13– November 8 – 12 – at this link.
Language –Students will continue to build on their skills of summarising, text, articles, news, vidoes. By identifying the key events and how they can be reworded using carefully chosen words to keep the sentences succinct.
Students will explore:
> What are the main ideas?
> What are the crucial details necessary for supporting the ideas?
> What information is irrelevant or unnecessary?
> Have them use keywords or phrases to identify the main points from the text.
Math – This week we will revisit the different known methods/strategies we have explored for addition subtraction. Students will also be introduced to word problems. They will have the task of finding key information, such as what is the number sentence? And be introduced to the systematic method ‘CUBES’ when approaching mathematical word problems:
UOI – This week we are very excited to start diving into our new Unit of Inquiry, last week we revisited what it means to organise ourselves (verb) and went on to make connections to what an organisation (noun) is. Students came up with a wonderful range of different ideas about various organisations and began to sort these into different types of organisations.
Next week we will be taking a step back to look at our central idea ‘Mission statements provide a shared goal for organisations to strive towards’ and how organisations use a mission statement to drive their actions and decision making.
Reading – We will begin our new reading groups next week. Students will continue to participate in 2 live reading sessions a week. For those students in Group 1 & 2, these will take place in school during the days they are on campus and for Group 3, these will happen online, with a teacher, twice over the course of the week.
Here you can find both the remote learning and the in class learning schedules that we will be starting from Monday. Please note that all specialist classes, apart from Thai, will take place when students are at home. Please see the schedule and if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead!
