In Math this week, we have been securing our understanding of place value through a range of activities. One activity that proved particularly popular was 'Find Your Friend'. The children were given cards with different ways of representing 3-digit numbers (pictures, expanded form, digits) and had to find their 'friend' who had a card that said the same number but represented in a different way. It was a great way to practise their verbal communication and demonstrate their mathematical understanding. We also tried to complete the activity using non-verbal communication, using some of the non-verbal methods that we have been thinking about over the last few weeks. The children all demonstrated excellent teamwork, mathematical understanding and application of different methods of communication!
On Friday, the haze kept away long enough for us to enjoy the annual Sports Day. The students took part in a range of events aiming to get as many points as possible for their House team. I was very impressed by the sportsmanship shown by the children who cheered everyone on and encouraged each other to try their best. It was Somerset who came away as the champions of Sports Day, however each and every child can be proud of their effort and determination!
Grade 2.2 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.
