It has been a fun week inquiring into our own personality types and how that affects our behaviour around others when working in groups. The children participated in a wide range of collaborative activities and reflected on what skills were needed to make them successful. We also had a go at debating “controversial” topics (Which is better, chocolate or ice-cream?) and consolidated our learning on angles, position and direction.
Different approaches to collaboration influence the productivity of groups
The children will be inquiring into:
Shared goals in group situations (connection)
Skills and behaviour that support collaboration (responsibility)
The impact of their behaviour on a shared goal (reflection)
Next week, the children will take notice of their adapted working styles when working with different peers towards a shared goal. This is lots of drama activities, games and challenges! They will use what they have learnt from Zones of Regulation to notice their emotions when collaborating with others and address them in a positive way.
Problem Solving (Four Operations)
In the coming weeks, the children will be reviewing the four operations through multi-step problems. They will be looking into explaining their thinking when solving problems, they will also be finding multiple ways to solve them.
Next week the children will develop a better understanding of opposite sides of arguments and plan to write their own expositions.
Comprehension Strategy: Connecting
The children will continue to identify connections while they are reading to themselves, other texts and the world.
