Welcome back everyone. I hope you had wonderful and restful holidays. The children we very excited to share their holidays with their teachers and peers.
We have begun a new Transdisciplinary Theme: Sharing the Planet. Please see below;
Central idea: Living things have certain requirements in order to grow and stay healthy.
Lines of Inquiry: The lines of inquiry will be co-constructed between child and practitioner based on learner’s interests, curiosities, and wonderings.
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, appreciation
So far we have been finding out what children already know about the theme and we will take it from there. Below are some of the discussions

A phone, a house, a monster, a super hero, a dog, a giraffe, a bear
