Welcome back everyone,
We hope you all enjoyed your holiday adventures and are ready to further explore and develop our learning for the rest of the semester.
Making connections to a past unit, where we investigated the concept of sustainability and our present unit, where the central idea is ‘People apply their understanding of scientific principles to innovate and create’, we are going on a field trip!
On Wednesday we sent home a permission slip for your child to go on our up-and-coming field trip. Thank you for filling it out and returning this to us as promptly as you can. A notice was also sent home with details and descriptors telling you about the trip, as can be seen below.
Field trip information
Year four will be going on a field trip to Fábrica de Sabão in Rua da Cerâmica in Cazenga. Keeping in alignment with the LIS Health and Safety and Security policies, the Year level will be split into two groups and go on the field trip on consecutive days, Wednesday 19th April (4.2 and 4.3) and Thursday 20th April (4.1 and 4.4). Each group will depart on their field trip from LIS at 8.30am and arrive back at school around 1.45pm (factoring in traffic time).
Fábrica de Sabão (An education centre for the People of Angola)
Is an enterprising education hub, which is focused on ‘tapping’ into Angolan people’s potential and creativity. The innovation-led education centre actively promotes entrepreneurship skills. It empowers participants to explore and develop their ideas while at the same time, providing instruction of the necessary knowledge and skills to develop their thinking and their work processes further. ‘It is a hub to connect, learn, create and grow – a place for creative and sustainable social change’ (quote from Fábrica de Sabão, The Story, copyright 2016 Fábrica de Sabão).
