Sorting Out

This week we have been sorting out our findings by creating models, verbally explaining to our peers and writing explanations. We have also applied our knowledge by solving real life problems related to our chosen processes.

In Maths, we are learning how to measure different changes over time for example, changes in temperature and area of desert. We are also interpreting data mathematically and looking at the different ways to collect and organise data.

Many thanks to Ms. Eunice Andrade for the informative and interesting talk on safety connected to our third line of inquiry.

Angolan Independence Day celebrations were in full swing this morning, many thanks to all the teachers, students and guests who made the event such a success!

How the World Works

Tuning in

Our new unit is How The World Works. We are looking at the concepts of processes and change. Click here to find the unit overview.

For the finding out phase of this unit (the 4th of October until the 13th of October ) we need the following:

  • earth scientists
  • geologists (rock cycle, tectonics, erosion, carbon cycle)

Please contact your child’s class teacher if you can offer help or know of someone who can.

To support the learning at home:

  • Find photos of natural changes in the environment of places you’re familiar with.
  • Ask questions like: What natural changes are happening in Angola or in the countries where you lived? What has changed? What caused these changes? What is the impact of these changes?
