In International Mindedness we have been learning to respect one another’s individuality and independence. We found it very interesting to find out how children travel to school in different countries. How do you travel to school?
Take a peek at what we got up to below.....
Splish, Splash, Splosh!
MP1 also had our swim meet this week. It was amazing to see so many risk takers challenge and push themselves in the water. Everyone showed great resilience as they swam full speed across the pool! Some even had to work together showing super cooperation and team work.
Cheers and chanting could be heard from across the school as everyone wanted to support their friends! Well done everyone!!
In LITERACY we made our very own information books all about transport. We designed a front cover and wrote our blurbs. We even included a glossary where we highlighted all the key words we've learnt over the unit.
In MATHS we have been enquirers, doing some class research all about transport. We wanted to find out how year 1 travel to school. First we used our knowledge on taliy marks to make a tally chart. We then used this data to make a pictogram and block graph. Finally to show our understanding we analysed the data to answer questions. The most popular mode of transport was by car. The least popular was walking.
In LITERACY we continued with The Elves and the Shoemaker. We made vocabulary lists with (new) words of the story. We also changed the feelings and actions of the elves and the shoemaker. We did an amazing job cooperating with our partners to make incredible lists. Some of us had to finish our story maps and others enjoyed inventing new parts for the story.
In MATHS we've been practising our addition and subtractions, consolidating our previous knowledge. Some learners have also been solving word problems involving addition and subtraction
