Latest from ELC 3 & ELC 4
Welcome to Wattle Group. The children have been getting to know each other this week. They have shown confidence in exploring our indoor learning environments, including our shared art and STEM studios and our garden area.
We have been familiarising ourselves with the routines of our school day. Wattle Group have particularly enjoyed spending time with our Music teacher, Ms Sofo. They have been exploring the sounds and movements of different animals.
This term, we will be exploring the central idea, ‘People have diverse thoughts, feelings and identities’. We will inquire into the thoughts, feelings and identities of ourselves, our new friends and of the important people who surround us.
During the first two weeks of the school year, the children in ELC 4 Banksia Group enthusiastically began to settle into their new learning spaces and develop their sense of belonging, as they have played and connected with new friends. Highlights of the first few days for many included playing the Chicken game in PE, exploring tempo with percussion instruments in Music and visiting the Library. In the classroom, we have begun our PYP Unit of Inquiry, Who we are, which explores the central idea “Belonging to communities develops relationships and personal Wellbeing.” The children discussed what a ‘Banksia’ is and shared their ideas on how we can belong and work as a group together, creating our Class Essential Agreement. We look forward to continuing our inquiry into the communities we belong to throughout the term.
