Weekly Update T1W11

Happy Mid Term Break! 

The time has come for our little holiday after a great start to our first term! I have had so much fun over the past 11 weeks with the students and I really feel like we are a little family getting closer each day, working as a team and facing challenges together! What fun we have had.

I hope you all have a fantastic break and do something fun with your family.

Here are some pictures of the week in action! 

In Maths, we have been working on our unit “Measures”. We did lots of different hands-on activities this week and the students had fun comparing objects, measuring each other and making towers.

This week in IPC we have been exploring maps. The students have been learning about the equator and how tropical fruit grows near it. They have also learned about different items that pirates used to “sail the seven seas” to find….even though the world actually has 7 oceans, which the students labelled beautifully. They were introduced to bird’s eye view maps and worked in groups to create their own.

In English,  the students have had a great time learning all about rhyming words and reading poems such as, “Fingers All”, “One, Two Buckle My Shoe” and “Oliver Twist”. The Year 1s practised writing the numbers 1-10 in word form as the Year 2s wrote their own poems using different words that rhyme with numbers. The class then came up with their own unique actions in groups to help them remember the words. This was a little tricky as some of our more enthusiastic students forgot that it’s difficult for some people to remember actions. Let’s always remember that “Teamwork makes the dream work!” 

Have a great week and I will see you all bright and early on the 14th November! 

Take care, be safe and enjoy! 🙂
