This week we continued our inquiry under the transdisciplinary theme ‘Who we are,‘ with the central idea: ‘We know we belong and have a sense of connection to others and the environment.‘ The children have been inquiring into their own families, as we all as other types of family structures. We read a story called ‘A family is a family is a family’ by Sara O’Leary, and ‘Tango Makes Three’ by Justin Richardson and Peter Parnell- a true story about two male penguins in the Central Park Zoo that created a family together. When our buddies came on Thursday we drew pictures of our families and compared them. What is the same? What is different? We are also comparing the idea of a family to a community. We belong together in K1, but are we a family? We also continued to work on our Moon Festival symbols this week. Our class dragon is complete and flying in our room. The dragon is the work of our inquiry into the colours and symbols of the Vietnamese Moon Festival.
Swimming continues next week. The children have been having a wonderful time in the pool.
