Weekly update – Week 5

Happy Children’s day to all the students!

Despite it being a short week due to the Children’s day public holiday a lot was happening in class.

In Math we learnt about 2D and 3D shapes and what the difference is, we also learnt more about 2D shapes and their names and whether they regular or irregular shapes.

In English we planned to write our own Adventure stories, we also workshopped how to write short stories, looking at what is important and how it is different from longer format tales like books.

During IPC we continued to look at different traditions from different islands around the world. We also completed our “masterpiece” t-shirts that is inspired by island life. The students had a lot of fun and showed a huge amount of creativity designing and painting or printing their t-shirts.

In PE started to learn a little how to play cricket.

But most importantly we put all of our skills we have learnt so far to good use during a very fun sports day.

It is also with heavy hearts that we are saying good bye to Caroline this week. We are very sad to see her leave but is super excited with her for her return to Houston and all the new adventures that await her there. Her sparkling personality and energy will be missed in the class.
