PY6 update

This week in PY6, we finished up our unit of inquiry, How We Organize Ourselves, with written reflections of the Trade Fair, a group discussion and work in math with excel spreadsheets.

We have started tuning in to our new unit, How the World Works.

Our central idea is: Chemical reactions create permanent and temporary changes in matter.
Lines of inquiry:
* The nature of chemical reactions and changes
* The manipulation of chemical changes for specific purposes
* The impact of human instigated chemical changes on society and the environment

We watched an "elephant toothpaste" demonstration video, recorded our wonderings, explored the periodic table, and began unpacking the central idea.

Our assembly date has been postponed. The next Primary Assembly will be Friday, December 14th with Suzanne and Mae leading the assembly and PY3 as the featured class.

Our PYP Exhibition parent information meeting will be Tuesday, February 26th at 4:00pm.

This will be my last blog post on this space as we are now using Seesaw to share and communicate with families. Your child will post to Seesaw to share their learning and I'll also use Seesaw to send you updates. If you have not yet signed up, please see my email and letter sent this week for instructions on how to sign up.

We invite you to this year's winter performance on Thursday 13th December, 18:00 in the Lars Ask. The theme for this year's performance is The Rainbow! PY5 will be representing the colour indigo. It would be really great if students could start looking to see if they have any indigo clothing at home that they could wear for the end of the performance (I'm hoping to create a giant Skagerak rainbow).

Students have also been allocated a part in the main part of the play. As with every other year there are no expectations for costumes. However, if you did want to prepare something for your child to wear it would be welcomed. They should all know what they are and have all been given their own copy of the script and song lyrics.

We are using plenty of time in school learning parts and lyrics, so it should be a colourful and exciting show to finish 2018. Please do get in contact if you have any questions about the performance or if you know your child will not be able to attend the performance.
