Ms Musiowsky also spoke to us about the Earth Charter and the importance of taking care of the Earth. We will continue to think about our actions on the Earth as we move through this unit.

We carried out a number of hands-on activities, investigating different ways that they can share a number equally. Take a look at some of this week's learning in Math.
Finally, we went to visit the Grade 5 Exhibition this week. The children were inspired by the presentations made by the Grade 5 children and made connections to our new unit. It also gave them some tips for their future presentations. The Grade 5's did a great job and should be very proud of themselves!
Grade 2.1 are a class of 7 and 8 year old students who attend ISS International School in Singapore. We learn together and play together and enjoy sharing our discoveries with you.
