Term 1 Week 2 Update

Hello everyone!

The first full week in school is complete with lots of fun learning experiences. The children settle back in well to routines, timetables, and daily school life.

In English, our first unit is ‘There’s a lesson in that,’ which explores Fables and Traditional Tales. To start the unit, we did a quick assessment to see how well the children write stories. As a class, we defined fables and looked at the key features and the lesson each story provides. Also, the children role-played different Fables to help them understand the story; we also delved deep into the character’s thoughts and feelings.

This week in Math we divided into our groups for rotations. This allows the students to get more individual attention as well as enables them to get time in class to practice the newly explained work. This week we looked at the numbering system especially multiplying and dividing by 10′ and 100’s and how this affects number values and decimal

Our first IPC unit is ‘Brainwave,’ the focus of the unit is how we learn. The first lesson was a knowledge harvest, where we looked at different questions about our brains and how we learn and shared what we know. Then we spent some time exploring growth mindset, the key ideas, and phrases; before creating a poster on it.

That’s all for this week, have a great weekend!
