During pandemic home learning, we are creating two or more activities a week that involve problem-solving maths skills.
Thinking is about using creative, critical, and metacognitive processes to make sense of information, experiences, and ideas. These processes can be applied to purposes such as developing understanding, making decisions, shaping actions, or constructing knowledge. Intellectual curiosity is at the heart of this competency.
Students who are competent thinkers and problem-solvers actively seek, use, and create knowledge. They reflect on their own learning, draw on personal knowledge and intuitions, ask questions, and challenge the basis of assumptions and perceptions.
Beth's and Melva's HB will be focusing on Visual Art and Drama this term.
VISUAL ART: Drawing and sketching
- Explore a variety of materials and tools and discover elements and selected principles.
- Investigate and develop visual ideas in response to a variety of motivations, observation, and imagination.
We will explore different kinds of mark making and shading. We will create a drawing based on a live drawing lesson.
We will be creating artwork to express our identities as an HB- self portraits, identity cubes, book corner, HB waka.
This programme will be provided through Maths Buddy while students are learning at home due to the pandemic. Extra activities may be provided on Seesaw for topics that are not covered by Maths Buddy.
Students will participate in online workshops where they will develop the strategies as outlined above.
Use a range of additive strategies and simple multiplicative strategies with whole numbers, fractions, decimals, and percentages.
In this program, we will create 2 literacy and 1 thinking activity for the hb each week (at least).
The literacy activities will link across curriculum areas.
The will involve technology to also present and communicate ideas.
Children will receive feedback to support them to develop their thinking and writing skills.
Students will create writing that includes;
full sentences, compound sentences, punctuation and topic specific vocab.
Due to the change in circumstances with the pandemic, the program has been split into two components of reading LAs providing reading content and HBLAs providing literacy content.
With this in mind.
The programme at this time will provide a junior journal story each week. When I am able to provide this, I will set a reading task accompanied by a recording of myself reading a story. These activities will have writing activities alongside them.
Other curriculum areas will also tie into these sessions to create rich learning experiences.
Due to the change in circumstances with the pandemic the program has been split into two components of reading LA's providing reading content and HB LA's providing literacy content.
With this in mind.
This program at this time will provide a journal story each week with sound, and the same journal story independently to read with a grown-up. I am also still providing a writing activity for each reading to support this learning for students to choose to do.
During home learning use simple additive strategies with whole numbers in mathsbuddy activities two times a week. This may include some seesaw activities.
Know forward and backward counting sequences with whole numbers to at least 1000.
Know the basic addition and subtraction facts.
Know how many ones, tens, and hundreds are in whole numbers to at least 1000.
Equations and Expressions: Communicate and interpret simple additive strategies, using words, diagrams [pictures], and symbols.
We will be using a range of counting, grouping and equal sharing strategies with whole numbers, developing strategies to add and subtract. We are also working to develop number knowledge around place value, focusing on the number of 10's within decades and how many tens and ones are in a specific number
