BHS Lunchtime Experiences: A message from our Student Council
At BHS we have lots of great clubs which our students really enjoy so Ms Chung challenged us to create even more! As the student councillors we interviewed our friends and classmates to find out their favourite clubs. We were wondering if any parents would like to help run these clubs? Do not panic! You do not need to be an expert or world champion, just enthusiastic and willing to help. This could be as an one off session or more, it is up to you. Please click on this google form to volunteer. The Student Council will then get in contact with you to organise the club. We will help with all the logistics such as venue, students and resources.
Thank you for any help you can give us.
Homes have been influenced by a variety of factors over time.
We will be inquiring into:
- What a home is (form)
- Why homes have changed over time (causation)
- How homes in (the local environment) Hong Kong have changed over time (change)
Next week we will continue our inquiries into homes around the world and begin to have conversations about the different homes we can find in Hong Kong.
Central Idea: Multiplication and Division are related and are used to solve problems
Lines of Inquiry
- The roles of symbols and the language of multiplication and division
- Mental and written strategies for multiplication and division
- The relationship between multiplication and division
Next week the children will practise their multiplication skills in a variety of open-ended tasks and Christmas-themed games!
Please encourage your child to practice their times tables.
Big idea for language: Writers can use descriptive language and careful word choice to give detailed information.
Comprehension Strategies: Summarising and Synthesising
Readers summarise the text and develop new ideas.
Next week, the children will continue to identifying features of an information report and have a go at a class-constructed report.
Congratulations to these students for being awarded a Golden Book Certificate this week!
