In Math this week we have been identifying, creating and extending patterns. After some consideration, the children thought that a pattern was 'something that repeats again and again and can be made with shapes, colours and numbers'. We began by thinking about and drawing all of the different patterns we could remember and shared these with each other. We then went on a pattern hunt around school and found patterns in the playground, on the floor, on the buildings and on the roof! Later, we created different patterns using a variety of resources and let our friends explore them to try to discover the rule. Finally, we concluded Math this week by continuing number sequences by counting in 2's, 3's, 5's and 10's. We even had to create our own number patterns containing certain numbers. Can you make a number pattern that has 6 and 12 in it? What is the rule? Can you make more than one pattern with these numbers in it?
There was a buzz of excitement around ISS on Wednesday as we waited for the Solar Eclipse to take place. The students were keen to make connections to the work they had carried out during our unit on How the World Works about the earth, moon and sun. We watched the live feed and talked about the changes in shape and light during the eclipse. A really wonderful learning experience!
The ISS Fun Fair takes place on Sunday 13th March from 12pm to 4pm. Thanks once again to those of you who have kindly volunteered in some way. If you are donating a cake, please add the price and ingredients to the sticky labels sent home on Friday and stick them onto the cake. Our stall will be next to the canteen in the covered areas. Please bring cakes to the stall by 12pm. There looks as though there will be lots of fun things to do there, I hope that you all have a wonderful day!
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.
