There is a fun, family event happening this Sunday 26th November. Some of our students have continued to visit Sai Kung Stray Friends after the initial trip during UOI1. Dylan arrived at school on Monday morning with posters from SKSF, after visiting them last weekend. Please help to promote this amazing cause,
It has been noted that many children are without the correct equipment and therefore certain lessons are challenging for them. In Year 6 we ask students to bring their own stationary kits to school. As leaners they are expected to be organised, prepared, responsible and Independent, this is good practice for when they go to Secondary School. From discussions with the children many of them are missing, calculators (not scientific), geometry sets, 30cm rulers, scissors and headphones (a cheap set can be purchased for around 15HKD). Please talk to your child about their stationery needs.
In September 2015, 193 world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development. If these Goals are completed, it would mean an end to extreme poverty, inequality and climate change by 2030.
Our governments have a plan to save our planet…it’s our job to make sure they stick to it.
The Global Goals are only going to work if we fight for them and you can’t fight for your rights if you don’t know what they are. We believe the Goals are only going to be completed if we can make them famous.
In Year 6 we are keeping track of all the amazing Action happening at school and at home.

This week’s winning house Team….
Transdisciplinary Theme: Sharing the Planet
Central Idea- Reaching a resolution during periods of conflict is influenced by the actions and reactions of all involved.

- Causes of conflict (causation, perspective)
- Conflict resolution and management (responsibility)
- Our responsibility as a member of a community. (Responsibility)
It was a busy week creating and sharing this week in Year 6. Our students worked against the clock to get their work together in order to share their learning to complete this UOI. Check out the photos below of us making and sharing.
We use the same rules for the computation of decimal fractions as for whole numbers
Number Maths – We will be investigating different strategies used to solve decimal multiplication problems as well as identifying the important link multiplication and division have in maths
The students have created their final expositions this week and have worked hard to self assess their own work, aiming to hit all of the success criteria. Ask your children how they did in completing this English unit.
Spelling : The children should be tested on their words at home 3 times per week ready for our buddy test on Friday. Any words that the children spell incorrectly during the buddy test on Friday will get carried over to next week’s ‘Words I need to learn…’ All children need to remember to bring in their Spelling Journals each day.
Reading : Each child should be reading throughout the week. Don’t forget to think about your weekly reflection for your Reading Journals!
