THEMED LEARNING

For 2 weeks, we will be completing MIT challenges in the Da Vinci centre. This year the topic for the MIT challenges is Navigating Tomorrow. This is a very exciting area of research and the topic encompasses 3 themes:

Street Smarts – looking at the future of self-driving cars, mapping skills, robotics and coding. Other areas we might look into are debates on the ethics of AI decision making.

Greener Skies – The challenge here is to look at ways to design aircraft which can mitigate the dramatic projected increase in demand for air travel whilst reducing the impact on the environment. With a wind tunnel to investigate aerodynamics, our students will explore how shapes travelling through the air are affected by air resistance and try to develop the most efficient forms.

Rethink/Refuel - This will look at the future of fuels, biofuels, land use and the growth of renewable energy.

We will be making these projects come alive over the 2 weeks, and we seek to enhance the teaching and learning of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM), by connecting MIT innovation and culture to our learning environment.

KEY VOCABULARY

Mapping, environment, biofuel, ideate, artificial intelligence

This week, we will continue learning design and 3D printing skills using the program: Blender.  The children will work in groups to create a pencil holder.

KEY VOCABULARY

PSHCE

This term our new PSHCE / well-being program will begin.  The first core value covered is collaboration.  This is the ability to work constructively with others, and children will learn to negotiate, to resolve conflicts, and to support agreed solutions. In doing so, they will strengthen their sense of teamwork and realize where they lack certain skills; which they can later hone. This week will have a key focus on the value of friendship.

KEY VOCABULARY

Collaboration, groups, teamwork, skills, friendship

DUTCH

Deze week gaan we aan de slag met het thema “Podiumkunsten”. We maken een mindmap en bedenken wat er allemaal hoort bij theater,  het podium en praten over elkaars talenten! We gaan oefenen met rijmen en dichten en leren dat er veel verschillende soorten gedichten zijn. We zijn al begonnen met “Raadgedichten”. Daarbij lezen we elke dag/week een nieuw gedicht, waarvan 1 woord ontbreekt. De bedoeling is dat we raden welk woord er mist, door goed naar de rest van het gedicht te kijken. Volgende week staan er weer een aantal raadgedichten op het programma.

Voor spelling oefenen we deze week extra op de categorieën die aan bod komen tijdens de citotoetsen eind januari.
