Term 4 Week 8 News

We have been so busy !

Swimming has been a huge success with  lots of students improving their skills or learning new strokes and techniques.  We come back to school very tired and hungry each day!

This week it’s “all systems go” before our BODY MIND SOUL expo next Tuesday. Students chose an area  of  interest and said what they’d like to find out  about it. They then grouped up  in chosen areas.  The three grades worked so well together yesterday  on investigating  and finding innovative ways to present their findings.  We will hold the expo  on Tuesday afternoon. We are going to leave it open from 3.25 to 4pm in case parents would like to wander in  for a wellbeing info session!

In Maths  We have been looking  at addition and subtraction and finding lots of strategies to make us better at these operations.

We are doing lots of practise for the carol service and our song is  “Santa Clause  is coming to town!”

Here are examples of the questions we are asking about Well-being…

MIND BODY SOUL

Our Inquiry unit this term is based on wellbeing and staying healthy.

We have started with physical wellbeing. This involves staying active and maintaining a well balanced diet. We got our pulses racing by taking part in activities with different teachers. We learned how to find our pulse and checked it after different types of activity. We viewed the kids health website http://kidshealth.org/kid/stay_healthy/fit/work_it_out.html#cat120

Today we began to talk about emotional wellbeing and especially how to manage anxiety. In library time, we listed signs of anxiousness and read a fictional story about James, who was worried about a Maths test. 

We worked in pairs and threes to come up with strategies and advice for him and then shared our ideas. 1-2 E came up with about twenty ideas! 

We decided that people show anxiety in different ways and there are many ways of managing our anxiety.

The important thing is learning to recognise the signs and knowing how to manage YOUR anxiety. 

Can you remember some of the symptoms or signs of anxiety which we came up with?

What recommendations did you have for the student in the story?
