This week has been an exciting week of fun games and work around the holidays theme.
This culminated in our Cookie Bake Off this morning, icing the cookies after assembly and then the gift giving from our secret friend.
Thank you to the parents for your support in this and also to the students who were very creative in making something for their secret friend.
It is the season for gift giving. I wonder what will our gift to the world be?
Here are some pictures from this morning.
Have a wonderful holiday and see you all in three weeks time.
Grade 5KN will be hosting this week’s assembly of Our Greatest Show which will be held in the Theatre from 1.45-2.15 on Friday Dec 2nd, 2019.
All parents are welcome to attend.
Our next Unit of Inquiry is How We Organise Ourselves. In this UOI the students will be inquiring into this Central Idea: Political systems structure how nations are organised and affect people’s rights and responsibilities.
Our Tuning In Activity was a tent building activity where the students were told to build a tent that could fit a person. It was really interesting to observe how different leadership skills emerged from this activity. Here are some pictures from this activity.
Our new Home Learning Grid is attached here:

Before lunch on Fridays is our Puzzle time with 5TB.
At first there were looks of despair and cries of ‘no way, it’s impossible!’ but some persistence and patience kicked in and a large handful of students climbed the puzzle mountain today and successfully completed today’s challenge. Well done!
The Grade 5s are going to the Shanghai Jewish Settlers’ Museum next week. All information is here in the letter attached.
Please find attached here the homework for our current unit of inquiry.
Read through carefully before you do the tasks.

Dear Parents and Guardians
This is our Grade 5KN Blogfolio page. We will use this page to share our learning and important messages.
We are now into the 5th week of school and a lot of learning has been happening in our class. We share our learning space with 5TB as we are a pod. The students in our classes are encouraged to work with someone different all the time. This is to help in developing their Approaches to Learning skills and the IB attributes.
We request that you sign up for our blog page so that you can also share in what goes on in our classes.Here are a few pictures from our past weeks of learning.
