As we will be teaching live there will not be a weekly meeting for parents.
We had a lovely time welcoming Group 1 students on campus this week and we felt sad that we could not welcome Group 2 however we look forward to seeing them next week at the times below.
Group 1 students – Monday and Tuesday starting at 7.30 am, picked up at 2.00pm
Groups 2 students – Thursday and Friday starting at 7.30 am, picked up at 2.00pm
Group 3 students who will be working remotely all week.
The students have been requested to bring certain items from home when they are in school. These will be brought back home on a daily basis but should have their names on them. Please see the list below.
- A reasonable sized backpack to fit into cubbies
- A pencil case with supplies (we will provide the usual supplies but the less sharing needed the better)
- Personal water Bottle
- Spare masks
- Lunch/snack if choosing this option
- Utensils, spoon/fork (optional)
- Whiteboard and pen.
- Exercise books Literacy, Numeracy and UOI
Ms Amanda the art teacher would also like the the students to return their art sketchbooks on the first day they return to campus so that she can catch up with their art so far this term.
Unit of inquiry
The students have been looking into the impacts on a community which migration can have and investigating famous immigrants. Take a look at the video’s below to find out about a few of these.
Godd , Cream and Un -Madeleine Albright https://drive.google.com/file/d/15yNRnXPS20ZbEkssuUP1N30ugeVT1DDY/view?usp=sharing
Prai- Albert Einstein
The students are now investigating and preparing for their end of unit presentation. This will not only show their learning about migration but will enhance their speaking and listening and presentation techniques. We are looking forward to seeing these in the coming weeks.
Connected to the presentation task, the students will be looking into how a story can be changed into a script. Investigating the features of a script which need to be included, for example setting the scene and stage directions.
As you can see from above the students have been reviewing their knowledge of mental strategies involved with multiplication to ensure they have a secure understanding of these before we move further with written procedures. They have also been evaluating timetable games to reflect on which ones will help them to learn most efficiently.
