Unit of Inquiry – Who We Are

We have continued working on exploring beliefs around the world. As a follow on to this exploration, we move into the meaning of racism and how we can work to become anti-racists.

Writing – Personal Narratives

We have continued to work on the features of a personal narrative. Most students are at the stage of editing and publishing a narrative of their choice by making sure they incorporate the features they have been learning about. 

Reading – Please remind your child that reading is an expectation every night – including weekends and holidays. A minimum of 30 minutes is recommended.

Math – Place Value

Mid unit assessments on place value have been done this week or will be done next week – depending on your child’s class. These are a good ‘check-in’ to understand where each student needs further support as we continue our learning on place value. It is not a summative of your child’s ability. The unit continues and the mid unit assessment helps us to make sure we know where each student needs extra support.
