A super busy week ended with some scary fun! I hope the students didn’t eat too much candy!
In maths, we moved on to adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions. The class played some games to help reinforce their learning.
This week we completed our unit on ‘Adaptability’ so we ended this with our Exit Point lesson were the students reflect on their learning and the Big Idea they used animaker to make an animated presentation. We also started our new IMYC unit ‘Structures’ with an Entry Point, the students used Lego to create their own structure.
We ended this week with Scary Dress-up Day, Jeongwoo won best costume in the class. We also had a visit from former student Leigh-ah it was nice for the students to catch up with her.
A super busy week in the Year 6-9 class, here is what we have been up to.
We are coming to the end of our IMYC Unit ‘Adaptability’ and next week, the class we be starting their new IMYC Unit called ‘Structures’. In Science the students looked at endangered and extinct animals and how this links to animal’s adaptations. The students used tablets to scan QR codes to find out information. In Geography, the students looked at the people of the Amazon and how they use their surroundings to help them survive.
In English, the classroom was turned into a dystopian setting with propaganda posters, video, sounds, images, and wire fencing to help the, create a dystopian setting description.
It’s great to have everyone back after the Chuseok break, a super busy week with lots of new learning! Another sad week as we say farewell to Ashleigh, I would like to wish her good luck at her new school and she will be missed!
