Homework 24th March 2015

Reading: Students are expected to be reading for at least 20 minutes every night.  This may be in the form of reading to an adult or sibling and includes time students spend reading to themselves.

Spelling:  All students are expected to memorise their spelling words several times every night.

Action Photographs/stories: any action taken by students to make a change as result of their learning is action and a vital part of the PYP. Families are encouraged to send in anedotes or photographs of your child making a change as a result of their learning.  For example: during our unit on Healthy Choices, Kehania and Yavuz took action at home to read nutritional labels on food products to help them make healthier choices.  Jack and Rebecca sent in photos of themselves choosing to eat healthy snacks at home. All forms of action are important and worth celebration so if you notice your child making a change, please let Mr Penrose know.

Unit of inquiry:(Required)   Not all students have sent in their work on complex machines.  If you have not done so, please be sure to send it to Mr Penrose by Monday.

My personal history

Last week, Mr Penrose shared a slideshow of his history.  We saw photos of him as a baby with his family and his first day of school.  This week students are asked to prepare a slideshow about their own history.  Students must include the following:

Chronological order

Photographs or short clips about special events in their lives so far (birthdays, cultural festivals etc)

The places students have lived so far, schools attended etc.

Each slide must include the year the event took place and the names of the people in the photograph.

These will be presented by the students in class next week and will help them to build their own personal timeline in class.

Please feel free to email Mr Penrose should you have any questions.
