Good afternoon G3 Parents and Families,
Wow! What a week! It has been amazing to welcome students back onto campus using our hybrid model. Students returned to their groups and enjoyed a very busy couple of days. It was lovely to see students reconnecting and sharing experiences both in the classroom and on the playground.
It has also been a busy week online, with the mixing of the hybrid groups, it has been great to see students working together across the classes remotely. Wednesday gives us the opportunity for sharing our passions, library skills, maths challenges and games and reconnecting as a homeroom class.
We believe it has been a successful start to the hybrid learning, with smooth transitions and we can only see this continuing as the students become more familiar with the new routines both online and in the classroom.
We would like to take this opportunity again to thank you for your continued support, it couldn’t have happened this way without you guys!
Have a wonderful weekend ahead!
First Week of Hybrid!
Please check out just some photos from our first week back 🙂
The Week Ahead
Here you can find the overview for next week and resources: Here
Please find the planner for Week 13– November 8 – 12 – at this link.
Language – This week students will begin to consider what makes a good question, in preparation for conducting interviews with their parents about the different organizations that they are a part of. We will consider; What makes a good question? What do you want to find out? Which questions are going to help you to get there?
We will then go on to reflect and evaluate the effectiveness of their questions:
What did you find out?
How did you record your answers?
Which information is relevant or unnecessary?
Students will then use their summarising skills to evaluate their findings.
Math – This week we will continue to revise the different known methods/strategies we have explored for addition subtraction. Students will apply their skills in adding and subtracting up to 3 digit numbers in a range of problem solving contexts. Students will also begin to reflect on why they have chosen a specific strategy and think about which is the most effective to use.
In maths next week we will also be carrying out another IXL snapshot, these will be carried out in the classroom on the days students are in school and for group 3, there is a specific time for these to be completed as seen below:
UOI – This week we will continue to explore and think about what organisations do, why they do it and where did the idea come from?
We are also thrilled to welcome Ganta’s parents into the classroom (via zoom) to share their story experience of setting up an organisation. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions about the process, why they chose to start this organisation and what their shared vision is. All students from each group will be able to join using the zoom link in the classroom and remotely.
Students will go further to think about what makes an entrepreneur, finding out about some of the youngest entrepreneurs: https://www.businessnewsdaily.com/5051-young-entrepreneurs.html
Reading – We will continue with 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.
As always, if you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact your homeroom teacher.
