This week we have been investigating our new unit: Civilisations!

We took a trip to the Hong Kong History Museum to see how civilization in Hong Kong has developed over time. We started at the prehistoric age, right up to the modern-day. We tried to find artifacts that linked with the six areas of civilization: Geography, Religion, Achievements, Politics, Entertainment/Economy and Social Structures or GRAPES for short. 

                                                                                            

In the classroom, we created group projects about a new text: Weslandia. This is the story of a boy who creates his own civilisation! We learned in groups to make a creative expression of the 6 GRAPES elements that featured in the story. There were raps, plays, portfolios, and even a debate. It was great to see such a wide range of presentation methods.

Reading

Students should have brought home their reading journals this week and they should be reading on a daily basis: on Fridays we update our Reading Diaries with a quality recount entry. Please can we ask parents to sign next to the comment. Students should be reading every day.

Spelling

Each week we would like students to do the following:

  • Choose at least 2 spelling activities and have a grown-up initial next to the activity completed. 
  • Write their spelling words out 3 times in columns. Look, cover, write and check.
  • Complete 2 spelling tests at home.
  • Science – students can practice presenting their ideas: in front of a mirror to a parent, peer or their pet hamster. Practice verbalising your ideas about your science experiment.
*If you have any questions, please email your child’s teacher: Mr. Douglas, Mrs. Craig or Mrs. Palmer for further clarification. Have a great week!
