This week we have concluded our investigation into addition and subtraction with our Math Coach Ms Beth. Our final task was to plan travel routes both within Vietnam and around the world using our Maths skills.
The students are busy preparing for Market Day which will be on January 14. Market Day is a very exciting and valuable opportunity for the students to learn to work in groups, compromise, be responsible and organise themselves. It is common that at some point during this process students could become frustrated with their group. We work to guide students through that process so that by the end of the unit they have learned valuable social and organisational skills. Please do keep in contact with any questions or concerns that may arise.
It is also important to note that after the break your child may be receiving a loan from UNIS to purchase supplies for Market Day. This will be dependent on what they are selling. If you purchase any supplies with your own money please keep the receipt or write a record. We want to make sure the students are keeping track of all of their costs as part of understanding how a business operates. Again if you have any questions feel free to ask.
Have a safe and restful Winter break. Thank you for all your support over the last 17 weeks.
