Week 12

Week 12 already!

The students have been very busy getting ready to present their learning about Migration which comes from out unit Where We Are In Place and Time. The students have been working across the grade level with students from other classes to research and present their understandings and new learnings.

We have been looking at the concepts of Highest Common Factors and Lowest Common Multiple and the students have discovered some very interesting patterns to solve these problems.

A busy week ahead for us as we present our Migration learning and then begin our new Unit if Inquiry, How We Organise Ourselves.

As always thank you for giving me the opportunity to work with your children.

Week 10

The weeks are flying by.

Thank you for coming to the 3 way conferences, this is a great opportunity for the students to share their learning with you and to be part of a learning discussion that directly concerns them.

Last week we carried on with our learning about Human Migration. The students have a really good understanding of the push and pull factors that influence reasons for migration. The student have been discussing their own migration stories which is really helping with their understanding.

We are having a focus on comprehension in our reading over the next few weeks, so if you are able to continue encouraging the students to read everyday and discuss what they are reading, that would be great.

Thanks again for the chance to work with your children.

Enjoy your week.
