Welcome to 6.1!
Room 6.1, in DO-10 in Block D of the primary department, is looking all set for a new year. Here are some of our learners in action, and some snapshots of the classroom. Please come in and say hi - it would be a nice opportunity to see where our learning is taking place this year.
Here is a copy of the timetable for this term.
ABOUT THE TEACHER
My name is Mr Thomas. I am from Australia, but grew up in New Zealand. I taught at EMS last year, and am looking forward to my second year at the school. I enjoy finding new ways of engaging children in learning and have worked with Year 5-6 students for most of my career. I look forward to meeting you all as our year progresses.
Please see attached a copy of the slides presented at last night's Meet the Teacher Evening.
Here are some photos of the Ant-Eaters reading group, posing with the project success criteria we agreed on together. As a group, they read a non-fiction article about two landmarks in America. Now, they are producing their own non-fiction article about a significant place, landmark or building somewhere in the world. Watch this space - perhaps some of the projects will feature on this site.
Please remember to check Google Classrooms to see the students' home learning over the next week.
Also, please remember to design your t-shirts with your quote, ahead of not only our dress-up day on Thursday but our assembly the following Wednesday.
Congratulations to these ESLR Awards recipients. Their achievements have been celebrated with positive letters being emailed to parents and a mini-ceremony today. Our two ESLR Award certificates will be presented on Thursday.
In science, we are learning about forces and motion. There is a practice activity available on Google Classrooms for students to practice, ahead of upcoming testing. Here are some photos of the students doing their science experiments about friction, in teams, today.
Our students were learning about understanding other people's perspectives last week, as part of the Second Step programme. Being able to do this helps us to see things from other people's point of view. This is important when it comes to solving problems and relating well to others.
