Latest from Year 1
Year 1 children are enjoying their current unit of inquiry, How we organise ourselves. The central idea is, ‘People create systems to meet the needs and wants of a community’. After great discussion, we listed the different forms of systems the children thought about or saw during their holiday break. They came up with an extensive list.
They discovered there are so many elements within these systems created to meet our needs. We are now researching the interdependence within and between these systems.
We have been learning about Superflex strategies to help our social thinking. Students are developing strategies to conquer their team of unthinkables. They do this by developing their self- awareness and by self -monitoring their behaviour. We made a list of different sized problems from tiny through to large. Learning how to react, to match, the size of the problem has been a positive outcome of their discussions.
