Term 2 Week 2 Update

We are now into our second week of term two as the students delve deeper into the new units we have started.

For IPC, we continued our work around sound; the students demonstrated how sound travel to Ms Sim’s class and tested to see if solids and liquids affect how sound travels. They also explored how to make high and low pitches with different instruments; and investigated the best soundproofing material.

In English, the students looked at writing a nonfiction text based on the ‘Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy’. We spent a lesson looking at active and passive voice, how to identify it and change from one to the other. Towards the end of the week, we started reading a class book called ‘The Boy in the Tower,’ and the class enjoyed it. We made predictions and explored the main characters, Ade and Gaia.

In Math, we worked with angles, learning to name, measure and draw them. We also visually observed that the interior angles of a triangle are equal to 180 degrees and used this in calculating missing angles of triangles. 

That’s all for this week, have a great long weekend and an enjoyable Seollal.
