K4 insight of May

An insight into the class life of K4’s month of May!

Coming back from Golden Week, K4 spent this month gaining better understanding weather patterns, the life cycle of plants, the lives of wild animals, and the purposes of farm animals.

K4 first got a basic understanding of how wind is created learning a simple phrase, “Hot air rises, cold air flows in!” This was illustrated with simple hand gestures to better understand the concept. They also got a kick of producing their own wind, simply by blowing onto their arm. They enjoyed the sensation very much!

One of the experiments the children enjoyed witnessing, was seeing the process of how a plant will absorb water. We used two green celery sticks and placed them into two separate jars. Then we added blue food colouring to one celery stick and red food colouring to the other. Over the next few days, the children saw the celery sticks turn blue and red as the coloured water demonstrated how the plant uses water to transport minerals to different areas of the plant.
During wild animal week’s clayplay session, the children were encouraged to create an elephant, using simple shapes constructed by their hands like an oval, rectangle, circles, triangles and squares at different sizes. The children had a lot of fun using these shapes to bring their elephant to life in clay form!
Farm week saw the kinder children all take a field trip to the farm. One of the unique sensory sensations the K4 experienced and many commented on was not the practice of milking a cow, it was the distinct smell of the farm that permeated the air! Ahh the farm!

What fun awaits K4 in June!

What's K5 has learning at NWIS

Measurement

K5 has been introduced to the concept of measurement.
Once we understood the concept of ‘unit’, we set off measuring our height using Duplo blocks as units.
Next we drew a picture of ourselves with the blocks and expressed our height in blocks: I am 18 blocks tall.

At another station there were three items with different lengths. Each item had to measured using connecting links.
We recorded the results in drawing and writing. In we had to determine which item was the longest or shortest. Instead of writing numerals, we had to write the number names (in alphabet).
We had been learning those since the beginning of the term.

At a third station we played a die game. We had to roll the die, read the number and match it with the corresponding numeral.
Throwing the die was quite fun and a challenge to keep it on the table!
