I hope you all have had a wonderful Spring Break holiday, and that your time with family and friends was everything you needed it to be. Thank you to those few students who posted pictures of themselves on holiday. It is always so nice to share these special times with each other.
There will be a very important Year 6 PYP Exhibition meeting on Thursday morning at 8:30. All Year 6 Parents are urged to attend in order to understand the PYP Exhibition and the role parents play in this culminating PYP inquiry project.
The maths focus this week is on calculations using the distance, speed and time equation.
An easy way to remember the distance, speed and time equations is to put the letters into a triangle.
There will be a quiz on this on Friday.
The triangles will help your young mathematician remember these 3 rules:
· Distance = Speed x Time
· Time = Distance/Speed
· Speed= Distance/Time
Our unit of inquiry summative assessment is a Rube Goldberg machine. It is due this Friday. Your year 5 or 6 inventor should have brought home the assignment and rubric to begin brainstorming over the holiday. They will be using materials from home to build it. All information and great Rube Goldberg Machine videos are posted for you in weebly on the Units of Inquiry page.
Everyone has a point of view, or a way of looking at things. In fiction, the narrator is the one who tells the story. There are two main types of narrators: first person and third person. The writing focus this week is on fiction written either in the first person or third person. Mini-lessons this week will support these points of view. The writing is due Friday, April 27.
Have a great week!
