Weekly Update – Week 3

Assessment week!!! This week our students completed the Cambridge Progression tests for stage 3. They wrote a test every day alternating between Math and English. Considering this is a very new experience for the students they all put in a lot of effort and gave of their best the whole week.

In Math we continued to look at fractions and learn more about comparing fractions, mixed numbers and improper fractions.

In English we looked more at adventure tales and looked at the difference of a legend and the actual person around who the legend is based by looking at St George and the Dragon.

In IPC we continued to look at islands and especially how they are formed. We also took a look at human habitation of islands considering where good spots would be to inhabit an island with regards to food, water shelter and protection from danger. We then started to look at the arts of island people and how different islands and their locations affect the fabrics that is produced on these islands.

During PE we practiced some traditional games that require different forms of coordination. We did egg and spoon walks as well as sack races. We also started to learn how to play badminton.

That is all for this busy week. We will be trying something different with homework this week by giving a little bit to do every day and not everything in one foul swoop.

Enjoy your weekend and see you all next week.
