Today’s Jr 5 Outing

A STEM activity that engages students in applying learned skills through hands-on activities. Observing living things in their habitat the students explored, analyzed and recorded data through the use of their tablet. Furthermore, they applied their artistic skills while sitting for a still life activity.

Jr 5s Outing

Dear Parents,

For our outing this Thursday please note that all students need the following items:

  • Sketchpads within a cloth drawstring bag (Art activity with Ms Cetty)
  • Learnpads (Digital Literacy/Science activity with Ms Gaby/Ms Edwina) please note that students were instructed not to get anything within their Learnpad bags. Only the tablet is required while all the rest is to be left at home)
  • Pencil case as instructed by Ms Edwina
  • Small lunch bag with enough food and water
  • 1 extra pair of socks just in case they get wet

Children can come in their Wellies (if available) since we are assuming that some areas might be muddy.

Kind Regards

Ms Gaby

Scholastic Pro on Learn Pads

Dear Parents,

Jr 5s: Kindly note that all students were given a laminated sheet, carrying teacher’s QR Codes (as per link hereunder). This will enable students to shift from one lesson to another with ease, not having to stay logging on blogs to view specific QRs. Included one can also find a QR code for Scholastic Pro. Students are to access the link within the lesson and input user and password.

Lessons QR Codes

Jr 4s: Right after the holidays, students will be given a similar sheet to the one above for easier lesson access. In the meantime, I am sharing Scholastic Pro’s QR.
