Pre-K Sharing and Caring
Sunday, 28 February 2016
Education -

"In the IAA Pre-K, we are learning about Sharing and Caring -- for our friends and family as well as for the environment. On Thursday, we each planted a seed that we will be taking care of and watching grow. We each had a cup (with our pictures and names on it), and we walked out to the garden and put soil in our cups. Then we put a seed in the soil and pushed it down so it was covered with the soil. We talked about the seed being safe and warm in the soil, like a baby in a blanket. We learned that we need to be gentle with the seed and not play with the soil while we wait for the seed to grow. We walked back to the classroom holding our seeds with two hands, careful not to shake or bump the cup. The seeds will be in the window so they can get lots of sunshine to help them grow. We will be watering our seeds one or two times each week and we will watch for the seed to grow into a bean plant." Bravo, Pre-K!

A peek into our weekly morning IAA parent workshops! This week, parents met our new Primary School Mathematics Coordinator, Ms Carmel, who delivered an informative workshop on the Scope and Sequence of the Australian Mathematics Curriculum. Ms Carmel is available for meetings if there are questions about the Primary maths programme. Appointments can be made through Ms Parveen in Primary Reception. Ms Carmel has promised a hands-on workshop with parents in a few weeks, working through the scope and sequence for addition. Parent-teacher partnerships make all the difference for students.
