Fábrica de Sabão – Field Trip

Thank you for the donations for our field trip.  The students had an excellent day and made many connections to the learning in the  How the World Works unit  – innovation, creativity and design.  As students move towards unpacking the design cycle, they will be encouraged to use their understanding from the field trip to inspire their creations.

Here are some photos from the day….

 

Visual Arts: Visiting Y11 Students

Yesterday in visual arts class, two year 11 students visited the PYP art room and showed examples of the paintings they created in MPY visual arts class. Y11 students presented their process portfolios, their process, and their product (artwork). Year 4.1 asked thoughtful questions about their process and their paintings and gave written feedback in the form of two stars and a wish.

Once they were done, y4 students showed the Y11 students examples of their Instagram pictures. Hopefully we will have more teaching and learning opportunities like this soon!

Math in Year 4

Over the next few weeks students will be introduced to and be practicing a range of problem solving strategies These are geared towards building a growth mindset in Maths, as well as laying the mathematical foundation for the rest of the year.

Here are some photos of some Year 4 students collaborating  on THIS problem.

All of the Year 4 teachers completed an online course ‘How to Learn Math’ from Stanford University. Some of you may know a little about Jo Boaler, who is a maths professor at Stanford and has completed many research projects on how students learn best. Please follow  THIS LINK  to see a handout from Jo Boaler about the best ways to support your child with maths at home. As a school we are working hard to ensure your children receive the best possible maths learning.  Furthermore students are being registered with www.mathletics.com again.  User names and passwords will be  distributed  to students when the registration is completed.

Some of our thoughts about Math….
