Heads Up

Welcome to Heads Up, your one-stop source for news about your son’s upcoming activities and events.

Message from Year 2

Since our last Heads Up article in early March, the boys in 2F have begun their inquiries into our newest inquiry unit, “Discoveries.” The central idea of this unit is, ‘Humans explore for a variety of reasons.” Over the next few weeks, we will be inquiring into what an explorer is, types of exploration, motivation for exploration, geographic explorations and famous explorers. We spent a fun-filled morning kick-starting this unit by having the boys play, invent and create through a variety of open-ended activities. These moments are available for you to view on our classroom door. We have brainstormed what we are curious about and the places we have explored and enjoyed conducting interviews around UCC as we investigated what other people are curious about and like to explore. Stay tuned for more exciting updates about this unit.

Our student-led conferences are just around the corner. We are busy getting ready for these as we select samples of work to share with you and create activities to teach you. It will be a fun hour to showcase our learning with no interruptions.

Upcoming activities include a new novel study, learning the steps of the research process and working with fractions. Busy times indeed!

Until next time,
