Die Graad 6 leerlinge het al reeds hulle iPads gebruik in Afrikaans. Die iPad kom baie handig te pas veral wanneer leerlinge sekere woorde in Engels moet vertaal en dan neerskryf. Die gebruik van woordeboeke word steeds aangemoedig tydens alle lesse.
Leerlinge het ‘n storie oorvertel deur gebruik te maak van sleutelwoorde en prentjies.
Ons is tans besig met die ontkennende vorm en sal in die komende week na antonieme en sinonieme, sowel as verkleinwoorde kyk.
Who says that science lessons cannot be creative? The grade sixes are busy creating eco-systems in order to better understand the concept as well as to show their understanding of food-chains and food-webs.
They are working in groups and had to decide on an eco-system of their own choosing. After researching their chosen eco-system, they have to find a way to recreate it on paper. They have been encouraged to use paint, pastels, fabric or even real materials sourced from an actual eco-system. I look forward to seeing the final products!
Last week the grade sixes were involved in their first ILT for the year. The overall task was to create an environmental documentary which would raise awareness about an issue which the children feel passionately about.
The project was broken down into smaller activities such as researching the issue,collating and sifting through the information, preparing and recording a debate, writing a letter to government officials as well as staging a protest!
It was amazing to see how well the children coped with the task and how creatively they put their documentaries together. It was most certainly an absolute success and enjoyed by all!
During the last few weeks the grade sixes have been presenting orals based on their surnames and their family history. It has been a really fun and interesting way to get to know the children and the English teachers have thoroughly enjoyed listening to them.
This was used as a ‘warm up’ oral for the year, just to get one under the belt and to take away the usual anxiety which accompanies the first oral.
It was also great to see how much the children learned about their families and their ancestry through this activity.
