Unit Of Inquiry:
Sharing The Planet
Human actions affect other living things
Lines of Inquiry:
Human interactions with other living things
The result of human behaviour on other living things
This week, we looked at how human action affect other living things by visiting Mr Aik, our security guard who looks after the plants in our school. He showed us what he does to make sure the plants are well cared for at the front of the school. He talked to us about the importance of watering the plants, feeding the plants by giving them fertiliser, and getting rid of the weeds. All this helps the plants to grow into strong and healthy plants and trees. We had great fun potting our own plant and watering it. We think Mr AIk is being helpful to the plants by looking after them.
We are being responsible of taking care of the plant and watering them everyday. We also take water the bamboo trees in the little playground. As we do that we are also looking at the changes that takes place due to our actions.
We then had a look around the school campus and found plants that we know Mr Aik looks after and the ones he does not. We noticed that the big trees like the Banyan tree and the field plants are looked after by nature and not Mr Aik.
Our focus in math this week was combining, separating and exploring combinations of whole numbers through various fun games and hand on activities!
We had a mystery reader This week! It was Gabriella grandmother who came to read to us. We were all so excited! She read the 'Hungry Caterpillar' in Spanish to us! Even though we did not understand the meaning we could read the pictures:)
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!
