Judging by your Two Star and a Wish reflections, I think you would agree with me that the children did an amazing job during the SLLR on Wednesday. I hope that you now have a better idea of what they have been learning in the recent months and see how much they have matured and blossomed.
Mr G and Mrs Fung came into the classroom today to talk about personal safety on the internet. Please play the following game with your child and discuss your home computer rules to show them how to be a responsible computer user.
It’s not too late! Please consider sending entries to the Festival of the Arts, The Lower School Gallery welcomes any artwork by students and parents.
Tiana is our star of next week.
Spelling Rule: /oi/ in coin. Usually followed by a consonant sound.
The children will continue to take jot notes for their presentations and focus on their oral communication skills. The grammar focus will be to review past tense when we write our presentation. In the middle of the week, we will begin to prepare palm cards to use during our speeches.
We will continue with the geometry workshop during centers time. On the computer we will practise using KidPix to draw and name as many 2D and 3D shapes as possible. Then there will be a geometry assessment to end this math strand before we start the operation of multiplication. During the next little while, we will learn how multiplication and division are related to each other and how they are used to solve problems.
We will finish making a horizontal or vertical time line of our individual for the oral presentation and reflect on how well we have done our jot notes research. Lower School IB coordinator, Mr Woods, will come in to help us with jot notes taking and help the children who are ready to write their speeches.
