The children made model lungs to better understand how and why we breathe.

We also got hands on with bones and teeth to discover their function.

Finally, we traced the flow of oxygenated and deoxygenated blood through the heart and around the body.

In maths, we worked on mental maths skills, multiplying decimals, finding the remainder as a decimal when dividing and Roman numerals.

Our week ended with our super enjoyable Chuseok celebration.  We had a great time presenting, wrestling and dancing!

Week 3 update

Hello from Year 4/5/6!

This week we got off to an exciting start with a trip to the Ulju Mountain Film Festival! Surrounded by the scenic views of the Yeongnam Alps, the

children outdid themselves by fearlessly ascending ropes and trees!

We also found time to watch an international film before experiencing the summit of Mount Everest using virtual reality. It was a truly memorable day.

Back in class, we continued our investigations of the human body. The class learned more about how light travels by studying the phenomenon of refraction.

We spent time this week preparing for our assembly in which we will share what we have learned with the rest of the school.

The children demonstrated not only their IT skills but also their wonderful teamwork skills as they collaborated on creating a presentation for the assembly.

In maths this week, we learned about the importance of order of operations through a lesson on BODMAS. We also applied the calculation skills we brushed up on last week to solving word

problems.

In English, we learned about the correct use of apostrophes and how to use relative clauses. We also worked on the skill of note taking which we are now applying to our research on Chuseok.

As we drew near to end of the week, we continued our focus on rhythm in music with some games involving beat and tempo.

Week 2 update

We have just come to the end of another top week of learning in  the Year 4/5/6 Dublin class.

This week was one filled with scientific investigations as we learned more about how humans work, our current  IPC topic.

Following on from last week’s hearing test, we became more acquainted with the inner workings of the human ear.
