Our final units of inquiry for this school year!
Posted by year5
As we head into our final units of inquiry, Year 5 students will be investigating what it means to be a responsible consumer. Through a variety of trade games, we hope the students will learn that fair trade is important for everyone in our world, either in a local or global capacity. Through empathy, integrity and reflection we encourage students to be responsible and fair in the participation of trade.
As we investigate narrative writing we will be focusing on the writing trait of sentence fluency, the rhythm and flow of our word choices in sentences.
How probable is it that ……….? These questions will need to be answered through words, fractions and games as the students look into the world of probability!
