Dear Parents and Children,
Since the year 1/2/3 students have been working so hard at rehearsing their assembly for Monday we will not have spelling words for this week. The students had an awesome time at Kidzania and showed of what they learned at the Job-based theme park by creating wonderful explanation texts of the jobs that they learned about. In English this week we looked at the features of non-fiction, explanation texts and it was good to interlink the English with our IPC learning unit on “a day in the life”. We had discussions about what equality means and talked about whether or not boys and girls can do the same jobs.
We will be concluding this unit by looking at a “day in the life” of a scientist and are fortunate to have Mrs. Lickert conducting an experiment in class on Tuesday 13 November. Students are encouraged to bring small amounts of clear liquids to rest in our experiment. Household items such as vinegar, lime-juice, oil or similar clear liquids will be ideal.
In Math this week the students showed wonderful creativity as they progressed from recognizing and making symmetrical reflective shapes to designing amazingly colorful reflective patterns. We also started looking at fractions in shapes.
The students have worked hard preparing scripts, organizing games and rehearsing a play for their assembly on Monday. Do try and join us for an entertaining presentation of their learning on Monday at 1;30 pm.
That is all for this week. Enjoy these pictures of our trip to Kidzania.
