Dear Parents and Children
Only 3 weeks until the end of term and still the fun and learning continues at HFS in the Year 2-3 Johannesburg class.
This week we had fun dressing up in our craziest pajamas to raise funds for the WeHope Orphanage Fund and the PTA. Thank you to the for providing snacks and refreshments for our pajama-movie party. At the beginning of the week the students enjoyed the visit from Mr Song from the Ulsan Dongbu Police Department. Riding in the police car was an amazing and unique experience.
In our learning this week we completed our English letter by crafting postcards for friends. I will be sure to mail them this weekend. We started our poetry unit by looking at rhyming words. Please practice the words to our song this weekend. The lyrics were included in the homework pack. We also learned about homonyms, building on our learning of homophones from last week. Next week we will look at poems from different countries and work toward writing our own poem.
In math we started our section on data handling by doing different surveys around the school and creating tally charts. We then learned how to use that data to create a bar chart. We rounded off the week by analyzing the data from our bar charts and creating questions for our classmates to answer. The students had a lot of fun experiencing what it is like to be a teacher in that respect.
In IPC we continued our exploration of forces by having fun with magnets. The students had to be scrapyard managers and sort magnetic and non-magnetic materials. We then did an investigation of which is the strongest type of magnet and created tally charts and bar charts, linking to our math studies and creating a new subject called “Scmath”.
We had fun with a new invasion game “Meerkat Moving” that linked to our English story from last week.
