Dear Grade Six Families,
The students have started reading a novel entitled: Iqbal Masih. As they read through the novel, the students will have a better understanding of child labour and the horrific conditions that Iqbal had to endure on a daily basis in order to reach his quota of carpets. They will work in groups and have certain roles to complete as they read through the chapters.
In maths, the students have started a new unit on angles. For fun, your child should look around the house and see if they can identify certain angles in 2 different rooms.
In science, we have started looking at the Scientific Method of Inquiry. The students were introduced to the following vocabulary words: variables, controlled variables, independent variables and dependent variables.
Homework for this weekend includes:
- Read daily for 30 minutes both quietly and aloud (fiction and non-fiction books)
