SNOW DAY 2018! Grade 6 English and I&S

Hi Grade 6!

ENGLISH: So today you would have all (6E and 6M) had English with me – what I would ask is that you all read for at least 30 minutes from your Roald Dahl books.

If you have not finished your 2nd book – you must by the end of this week. So please use your time today wisely!

If you have finished your book and do not have another one – feel free to read any other book for at least 30 minutes today!

I&S: (6E) we should be looking at the case study of plastic in the ocean.

Please remember that this case study is looking at the OCEANS – you will be looking at FRESH water pollution.

Have a watch of these short videos and think about how we balance things – can we ban all plastic globally? Does that make sense? Is it possible? Or do we need a way to balance using, disposing and reusing? Is there any fact or idea that grabs your attention and makes you want to learn more? Yes? Then go for it! You guys are amazing inquirers!

  2. Put it in the middle of a page – not too big, not too small.
  3. Now THINK – what were the themes this year, what were the big ideas? The SoIs? The concepts? The Life Lessons? How has what YOU have learned CHANGED how and who you are?
  4. Title the page with one of the following Global Contexts that best fits your reflection:
    1. Identities and Relationships:Who we are: an inquiry into the nature of the self; beliefs and values; personal, physical, mental, social and spiritual health; human relationships including families, friends, communities and cultures; rights and responsibilities; what it means to be human.
    2. Fairness and Development:  Sharing the planet: an inquiry into rights and responsibilities in the struggle to share finite resources with other people and with other living things; communities and the relationships within and between them; access to equal opportunities; peace and conflict resolution.
    3. Personal and Cultural Expression: How we express ourselves: an inquiry into the ways in which we discover and express ideas, feelings, nature, culture, beliefs and values; the ways in which we reflect on, extend and enjoy our creativity; our appreciation of the aesthetic.
