Week of November 17th

We’ve come to the end of another great week of learning in 1B.

We have begun our new Sharing the Planet Unit in UOI and are looking forward to delving deeper into the environments of living things and human impact upon them. If you have professional experience in this area, we would love to hear from you.

In library this week Ms Monica explained to students how they can search for authors by name using first three letters of the author’s name. They were excited to practice this using their own name and to see if there were any authors in the storybook section that shared the same name as them.

On Thursday Ms. Beth our math coach, joined 1B to introduce us to choral counting and to see what patterns the students noticed between numbers. Our primary goals in math at the moment are:

  • Counting forwards and backwards to 30 and beyond.
  • Looking for patterns in numbers, shapes, and pictures.
  • Representing numbers in different ways.
  • Knowing our number facts to 10 and 20 (addition and subtraction)
  • Practising and getting used to explaining our maths thinking.

We are looking forward to welcoming as many of you as possible into our Open Classroom next Tuesday November 18th when our students will share with you some of the maths games we have been practicing in the classroom.

A huge thank you to Seongwon’s mum, Mrs Yun this week for coming to read to 1B as our first mystery reader! We would love more readers, so please do get in touch!

Please note that your child has a new cloth bag for sending home their reading books, reading log and letters from school. This should be returned to school every day with their reading book so that we can keep track of home reading. Some of the students are regularly changing their books and completing their reading logs. I am also sharing a link for students to log in to Raz Kids at home as another way to keep track of their reading goals.

Thank you for all of your help in supporting their learning!
