Welcome back

Dear Parents,

Welcome back to the second half of the school year. Children settled back in school well and they were excited to share with their us stories about their holidays. You will soon receive an e-mail on behalf of the informing you about a switch to the Seesaw platform, through which we will keep a digital portfolio of each child and communicate with you.

In the meantime, here is some information about our new unit of inquiry: Sharing the Planet.

Central idea: Living things have certain requirements in order to grow and stay healthy. Key concepts: form, responsibility

Related concepts: survival, living/non-living things

ATL (Approaches to Learning): research skills and thinking skills

Learner profile attributes: knowledgeable and inquirers

Attitudes: respect, curiosity, and appreciation

During this unit, children will have the opportunity to research about living things and think about the responsibilities humans have to take care of the planet. We would like to invite families with pets to contact us so we can schedule a visit.

This week, we read the book We All Went on Safari by Laurie Krebs and we danced to the tune of Down in the Jungle.

Have a great weekend,

Miss Georgina and Miss Francesca.
