Welcome to Early Years.
Week 12. 20/11/2017
This week in early years we will begin our second unit of inquiry in the PYP trans-disciplinary theme of, ‘How we Express Ourselves’. Our central idea is: Stories can engage their audience and communicate meaning.
The lines of inquiry are:
What stories can convey;
*How stories are created and shared
*Feelings and emotions that stories evokes
*How to construct an effective story
The key concepts that we will look at are connection, reflection and perspective. During this unit we read various stories that convey certain emotions.(happy, sad, excited, scared, etc).They students will learn how to analyse elements in a story that will help them in creating their own. Then they apply what they have learned by creating their own stories. We are looking forward to reading lots of exciting stories.
Just a reminder on Wednesday November 22, there will be a Thanksgiving luncheon for students and parents at 12:15pm.
Thursday November 23 is no school, Thanksgiving holiday.
On Friday November 24 is our monthly assembly at 8:30am.
We are looking forward to another great week.
