Today students started their day with numeracy where they continued with equivalent fractions. They had the opportunity to engage in activities on their laptops to further explore their skills for calculating and identifying equivalent fractions both visually and mentally. It was great to see how engaged in their learning they were, helping each other and sharing their accomplishments.
The rest of the day was spent using our critical and creative skills in order to design, plan and make lanterns in preparation for the celebration of the Moon Lantern Festival on the 13th of September. The Moon Lantern Festival or the Mid-Autumn festival is more commonly celebrated among the Chinese and Vietnamese cultures. It is a time for families to come together and celebrate the festival. Everyone was very eager to work individually and in small groups to plan and implement their designs. Using their creativity and problem solving skills to overcome any obstacles. We continued this activity up until the end of the day.
Today was a great day with high engagement among the students which was wonderful to see and we can’t wait to see their finished products.
