5th Grade ISL Qatar Update
Week of January 12th -16th
Today we had a fire drill. It was wonderful to see how quietly and sensibly the Grade 5 students evacuated the building. They set a very good example to the younger children.
Unit of Inquiry
Each class has written their own line of inquiry. Students needed to understand the connection between the central idea, lines of inquiry and key concepts in order to do this. Working through this process will help them when they write their own units for the PYP Exhibition.
We have continued developing an understanding of the features of an explanation this week. We looked an examples of explanations to see how time and causal connectives are used. We continue to work on conventions of spelling, punctuation and grammar and how to spot errors in these when students edit their own work.
Next week students will be regrouped for Literature Circles. The students have decided that they would like to have the opportunity to read with people in other classes. Literature Circles take place every Sunday and Wednesday. Students should read the pages/chapters decided by their group and prepare a task for the next session.
P.E. is on Wednesday and Thursday. Students should always remember their hats and a change of clothes on these days. They are also encouraged to bring and use non-aerosol deodorant.
