Another week has flown as we begin to delve deeper into our Topics for this term. This week the students have spent some of their time preparing for their assembly, which will take place on Monday and also getting ready for the Seollal school celebrations, which will take place on Tuesday. The highlight of this week was, of course, Silly Hat day. I was very happy to see the entire class participate in this and every hat looked amazing, well done to Aki, who was voted the winner of the best hat.
In science this week, the student looked at the properties of different materials. In pairs, they tested the hardness, flexibility, permeability, whether it is magnetic or not, and whether it was transparent or not. They also looked at reversible and irreversible changes, identified these and explained how the reversible changed can turn back and what the identified the reactant and product of irreversible changes.
This term in PE the students have started learning basketball, this week they have worked on passing, defensive skills, and dribbling. Later, the students will work on shooting and game situations.
In English, we have continued our work around suspense, the students have worked on writing short paragraphs that include the features of suspense writing as well as learning about show don’t tell. They have also completed a plan to help them write their own suspense stories that they will start writing next week.
That’s all for this week, have a great weekend everyone.
