Maths- Thinker Learner Profile- Summer Holiday

Dear Parents,

This week the children were going on a summer holiday. They were asked to pack their bag which contained 3 different colored shirts and 4 different colored shorts. Linking to our learner profile attribute of thinker they then had to find all the different combinations of dress.

After exploring for a while students came to an agreement that the best way to find all the combinations was to keep one thing the same (for example keep the same color shorts) until all the combinations could be found.

As an extension students were asked to make math equations to explain their findings.

Olympics Day!

Dear Parents,

This week the children had the opportunity to spend time with their friends and colleagues across the entire school during our Olympics! Splitting into small groups everyone had the chance to meet old and make new friends while playing many team building games and activities.

Celebration of Writing!

What a great turn out we had to our writing celebration today! The students were so excited to have you parents join us so we could show off the expert books we have been working so hard on. Hope you enjoyed them!

There will be more opportunities for you parents to come visit us later this term so we can share more learning. We will be sure to keep you posted!

Our visit to year 5 exhibition!

Year 5 students at LIS just finished the unit of inquiry “how we express ourselves.” This is the same unit our class began this week.

Today we were lucky because the year 5 students invited us visit their classrooms so they could show us some art they created throughout their unit of inquiry. Each student’s art conveyed a strong message related to important topics such as deforestation and extinction. Our year 3 students got concrete examples of art and graphic design communicating a message.

We are excited to create our own graphic designs throughout this unit in order to communicate messages to our own audiences!
