Our Unit: Who We Are
We have begun to investigate the systems within the human body as our fourth unit has begun. The level of student enthusiasm is characteristically high as we explore the ways in which these systems function and how they are linked. A special thank you goes to the many parents within the medical profession who have agreed to come and share their expertise with the classes.
We will look at seven body systems: skeletal, muscular, nervous, respiratory, circulatory, digestive, and reproductive. There will be a strong focus on the healthy maintenance of these systems through positive lifestyle choices, and we encourage parents to discuss the effects of lifestyle choices on the body at home.
Throughout the past two weeks, we have been busy working on our Fairtrade posters and are proud to say that they are now finished. Come and check out the classrooms and display boards to have a look at the great results!
This week, we have started introducing our new unit. It is about appreciation and improvement of our local environment. Therefore, we will explore our school surroundings on Friday and look for ways of showing appreciation and non-appreciation in our neighbourhood. The end assessment will be a an exciting project in which the kids can become very creative and invent something new that helps to improve our environment! The language focus in this unit will be the past tense and the future.
We are looking forward to a creative interesting unit!
In addition this week, please find information about how to order English books for your family through Baker Books in the link below. Your child will also come home with a catalogue regarding this in the coming days. All the information you need is included in the flyer link below.
