The students are excited to have started our next unit of inquiry. The central idea for this unit is everyone has a role to play in developing meaningful relationships. During this unit, the students will inquire into how meaningful relationships work, how reflection can improve relationships and what roles individuals play in relationships. By the end of this unit, students will have created class jobs and will have new responsibilities around the classroom.
Students enjoyed using their class pumpkins from Downey’s Farm to practise letter recognition and make them look crazy with some alphabet stickers.
Please have a look at the bulletin board at the front of the school as the Kindergarten students did their best to make it look spooky with their Halloween crafts.
In French, the students have been learning a song about Halloween called C’est l’Halloween!.
This week in Art, the SKs have been learning about French street artist, Invader, who creates accessible art using mosaic tiles. They used their knowledge of symmetry to create a mosaic inspired by Invader’s designs.
