When you look at the stars and the galaxy, you feel that you are not just from any particular piece of land, but from the solar system.-Kalpana Chawla

Hi everyone,
This week kids in 5th and 6th primary have been learning about the Solar System and the Structure of the Earth. Theyโ€™ve met Dr. Binocs and his show whose videos helped them understand those topics more easily…and they learn while having fun!
Here is the link.
I hope you enjoy it too.

 

Hi everyone,
The final 2nd term project which has been presented recently is about the ancient civilisations: the ancient Greek, the Roman and the Egyptian. The topics chosen by the students were, for example, the hieroglyphics, the mummies, Greek gods and goddesses, the mythology, the Colosseum etc. The kids had lots of fun and they learnt a lot about the ancient civilisations. They also prepared questions and games for their classmates.
Well done everyone!

We have used this three step cooperative structure in 5th to read and answer True / False questions. During the first step individuals think silently and answer questions, during the second step they work in pairs and exchange answers. ย In the third step, the pairs share their responses with the entire group. While they were working we were listening to some relaxing music which also helped them to concentrate.
It worked really well! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

Hi everyone,
The kids in 5th A ย have been teaching their classmates. Each group learnt about one part of the unit โ€œThe Middle Agesโ€ : Al-Andalus, Reconquista, Medieval cities… then they explained to the rest of the class .
It was a good experience for them and they enjoyed it.
