Welcome back and we hope everyone had a great summer. K1 have started their Spatial Awareness unit this week. The central idea of this unit is, “Awareness of our surrounding space helps to keep us and others safe.” The enduring understanding that we aim for the children to have through this unit will be that:
- there are different types of space
- space affects our movements
- our use of space affects others
The PYP attitude we will focus on during this unit is cooperation and the learner profile we will focus on is principled.
We encourage parents to talk to the children about the ideas of cooperation and principled in their native language at home as it facilitates the understanding of these concepts. Please enjoy some pictures from our first week back:
