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.
This week in year 3 the children have continued their investigation into children’s rights and have deepened their understanding into wants, needs and rights. The rights have also been linked to their associated responsibilities.
Here are some photos from this week:
People worldwide have access to rights and opportunities that can look different.
We will be inquiring into:
Difference between needs and wants (Perspective)
Children’s rights and responsibilities (Responsibility)
How children rights are protected (Reflection)
After the break the children will continue to inquire into wants and needs.
As this is our sharing unit, your child will have an extra session of music and will work with Ms Cassie to produce a piece a ceramic artefact.
The children will also experiment sketching in the style of Quentin Blake and will be introduced to the concept of looking after and ensuring their Flour Babies needs are met. Each member of the class will have the opportunity to take home a flour baby and document their time looking after and meeting the baby’s needs! Ask your child to tell you some of the Rights children have!
Addition and Subtraction are related and are used to solve problems
Lines of Inquiry:
How we use addition and subtraction to solve problems
The strategies we use for addition and subtraction
The relationship between addition and subtraction
Odd and Even numbers
After the break the children will continue to inquire into different mental strategies used in addition and subtraction calculations and will recap on the Split Strategy and Jump Strategy. The Children will also engage in open-ended addition and subtraction learning tasks.
Congratulations to these students for being awarded a Golden Book Certificate this week!
