What a wonderful and busy week.
We had a new student begin in our class. Welcome Kenzo. It is very nice to have you as part of our team.
We were busy tidying up loose ends from our first unit on Peace and Conflict Resolution and moving onto our new unit…
Where We Are in Place and Time
Central Idea – People’s understanding of science has evolved over time, and shapes the future.
Lines of Inquiry:
• Scientific ideas that have changed the way people live
• How people have taken previous scientific understanding and built upon it
• Areas of future discoveries and technological advances
Key Concepts: change, reflection
We were busy tuning in…
We talked through the process of planning…
• Brainstorming ideas
It was loud and busy and fun…
With only a polystyrene tray, the students had 30 minutes to invent something. Some students chose to work in teams which created more ‘time’ so to speak. Everyone was enaged and successful in coming up with something pretty creative. You can see the results below.
photos – the students have access to many of the photos I take on their drive.
We were also very busy preparing for the 3 way conferences. They have worked hard and selected some key points and goals they wish to share with us. I am sure we will all take delight in listening to these young learners on Monday.
We finished the week with a lovely read in the park opposite the school. Well, after a little time selecting the best spot, then there was a bit of reading. Beautiful photos below.
