We are back into our year long unit: cooperation is important to achieve team goals.
We revisited and answered the questions,
Why is cooperation important?
What is a team?
When do we work in teams?
Ms Smita read the book Camille's team by Stuart J. Murphy. Just like Camille's team, we had to build our sand castle. We first made a plan and decided what role each of us would play. We then head off to make our sand castles!

Highlight of the week
K2 Performance: 'The Hungry Dog.'
Unit of Inquiry:
This was our last week into our unit 'Who We Are'. We revisited our routine cards to conclude. We added more routines followed at home and school which help us take care of our body, mind and learning.
The highlight of this weeks Unit was our visit to the Heath Zone. We first attended a session on the 'Healthy Plate Family'. Here we learnt about the quantity of foods we should consume. Fruits and vegetables (or the protection food) should be half the plate, grains (growing food) a quarter and proteins and milk the other quarter of our plate. We also learnt that as children we need to consume 5 glasses of water everyday to stay healthy.
We are the class of K2 consisting of 5 and 6 year olds. Our teacher, Ms Smita, facilitates our learning through inquiry and lots of fun!
