This week we’re looking forward to speaking with you all as part of our Parent conferences. Please check your email for the zoom link and see you there! Please also speak with your child about their learning goals BEFORE your conference as per last week’s homework. Here’s some polite advice for having a successful conference from Ms June:
Next week is parent conferences in the Primary School. By now everyone should have signed up for an interview time on the forms sent to you by your child’s teacher, if you haven’t managed to do this please contact the teacher directly. As our meetings are being done via zoom they will look, and be a different experience for both you and the teacher’s, here’s a couple of helpful guidelines for a successful conference.
Be on time for your meeting, the time period is not long, however teacher’s are meeting back to back throughout the day making punctuality important
Try to find a location where you can have a focused and confidential conversation without distractions.
If you haven’t already, please have a discussion with your child about their goals and what they are working on so you can use this information as a basis for your conference. This information was shared with you by the teacher earlier in the week.
- Please try to be a couple of minutes early to the conference and wait in the waiting room, you will be invited into the zoom room at your given conference time.
Many thanks for your support, any questions or feedback welcome, please enjoy your conferences.
Last week Niska shared her wonderful action with the Grade, thanks for your support of her initiative:
We are starting our new How we express ourselves unit this week and will spend our UOI sessions tuning into the transdisciplinary theme:
An inquiry into the ways in which we discover and express ideas, feelings, nature, culture, beliefs and values; the ways in which we reflect on, extend and enjoy our creativity; our appreciation of the aesthetic
In Maths we will continue our explorations of fractions, decimals and percentages alongside developing our understanding of coordinates and experimenting with symmetry and shape translation.
Have a great week and see you on Zoom!
