Our Mini Exhibition – What we thought!

Our Mini Exhibition – What we thought!

What a wonderful day for 1HN!  It was just great to see the students sharing their knowledge with family and other visitors to their stands.  The students were able to speak about their animal and it’s features and habitats.  By displaying their knowledge and discussing what they can do to help, it is all a form of TAKING ACTION.  The last part of our Inquiry Cycle. It has been a wonderful process and the students have certainly been active learners.

Here is some of the immediate reflection that students offered when we were back in class.  You will see a theme of how much they loved having their family involved, so thank you again to everyone that was able to come along and support them.

‘I loved it when my Dad came and he gave me a star.’ – Nakia

‘I was scared at the start if I had to talk to many strangers, but I loved it when my Mum visited me and gave me a star.’  – Lilah

‘I wanted my family to come and they did, so I was happy.’ – Joanna

‘I liked it when my Mum came and she said my work is beautiful.’ – Kiara

‘I liked it when my Mum and Dad came and when they gave me a star and then my baby brother gave me a star too. I liked sharing my animal and being next to Sunny.’ – Sarah

‘I loved it when my Mum came and she gave me some water as I was so tired of talking so much about my frog.  I liked it when other people came up and gave me a star too.’ – Marina

‘I liked it when my Mum came and gave me a star and my Mum wrote to me in Korean.  She kissed me and I was happy.’ – Holly

‘I liked it when my Mum and Dad came and I liked it when I was next to Sarah. I liked it when people gave me stars and at the end I had 5 stars.’ – Sunny

‘I liked it when my Dad came and gave me a comment.’ – Paul

 

Here a few photos of the action and I have some lovely family shots which will be in the portfolio.

 

 

Minute Madness today

Minute Madness today

We had a noisy maths class today as we were inquiring into how long is a minute and what can you really do in a minute.  There were lots of ideas to start with, but after completing a few rounds we realized that a minute can sometimes seem longer than think and shorter than you think.  It can depend on what you have to do!  It was a busy, fun time watching students really engaged in timing themselves.

 

We have been learning all about time for the last two weeks, starting with Days of the Week, then Calendars, then different types of clocks and how to tell the time to the half hour on an analogue clock.  It has been a lot of fun.

Challenge your child to tell the time on an analogue clock to you for an hour or half hour time.
