Week 3 Term 3 Update

It has been a short but busy and not to mention fun week here at HFS.

In IPC this week, we got our hands dirty and tested our green fingers by planting some tropical plants. The children will investigate in what conditions  tropical plants thrive while taking notes

and drawing diagrams to record the plants’ progress.

We took some time to recap the basic parts of plants before taking a closer look at the parts of a flower and the role they play in reproduction.

We also carried out an investigation to learn more about how plants transport water using capillary action.

In maths this week, we focused on problem solving. The class are becoming much more skilled at dissecting word problems and explaining their reasoning.

In English, we looked at persuasive writing. We researched deforestation in depth so we are now ready to write a discussion text outlining the arguments for and against this important global issue.

We finished the week off with a park clean up in order to observe Earth Day/Green Day. The children had great fun hunting down rubbish while learning to show responsibility for their environment.
