We visited the Singapore International Children's Film Festival at National Gallery. We enjoyed watching the short films from various parts of the world!
For the past two weeks we have been having book characters as star names. We had the 'Queen' & 'Prince' from the story book 'Sleeping Beauty' as our Star Name characters, Queen & Prince answered our questions via google hangout in our Star Name interview! What an amazing surprise! Their names gave us an opportunity to look at three new alphabets 'P', 'Q', & 'U'. We discussed the form of the letters and sounds. It demonstrated our growing alphabet knowledge!
Visit to the art Exhibition
Here are some pictures from our visit to the PYP & MYP art exhibition.
Look who visited us!
Ms. Alison visited us alongwith Isla & Mr. Nathan. She read two books to us, one of which happened to be Isla`s favourite book!
We made use of apps like i Stop Motion and Puppet Pals to create stories digitally.
This week at Math stations we worked with Twenty Frame, I pad apps, and played games with Primary number cards & 'Go Fish' game to expand our number knowledge. In 'Go Fish', we explored the combination of numbers to make 5 . We 'fished' for numbers which when combined in pairs added up to 5.
Moulding our favourite characters in clay
In our Art session this week we had fun moulding clay and see the favourite characters from our story books take shape !
For the past two weeks our Star names have been characters from the book. We had Max, from the book 'Where the wild things are' by Maurice Sendak. Our Star Name character, Max answered our questions via google hangout in our Star Name interview ! What an amazing surprise!
It gave us opportunity to look at two new letters- 'X' in MAX and 'D' in the word 'Wild'.
As we read Max`s imaginative journey, we spread our wings of imagination to draw what our rooms would transform into …….
Creating Our Story Books
In our present Unit of inquiry 'Stories are interpreted in many ways', we have been working on drawing and writing some stories of our own and we continue to express it in different ways. This week in our art session, Ms. Caz guided us on creating the 'settings' for our stories !
We had fun outdoors during our sand play and swimming lessons this week !
