Week 16: December 2-6

Greetings 5C Community,

Here students are practicing “being on our knees in despair.”

This week in UOI, we’ve been super busy learning to orally present our migration stories. With help from Mr. Brewster and the 5D students, we have placed a lot of emphasis on gestures, facial expressions and emotions, with the aim of making our presentations rich and engaging for audiences. In the pictures below, you can see us practicing. We look forward to showcasing our work at the Migration Museum on Wednesday.

In math this week, students worked in pairs to solve the “fidget spinner problem” and creating exemplary posters that clearly showed their claim, evidence and reasoning for a problem involving division (2160 / 8). Next week, students will complete a summative assessment task involving multiplication and division, before we move into fractions when we return from winter break.

In literacy this week, students completed their narrative drafts for the migration stories. Most book club groups also completed the novels they were reading and discussed the social messages in the book. We also discovered why some letters, such as the “p” in shop, are doubled when we add certain suffixes, like -ing to make shopping.
