Trinity News : April 2011
It was an eventful week in Year Two at the Preparatory School. In our studies of the concept of Causation, Jon-Luc was pipped by Antonio for the “World Heavy Weight Championship,” and Owen, Joshua, Ivan and Duncan put out several imaginary bush fires. This was followed by more acting, and Year Two at the Preparatory School felt like the television stars as the boys took on roles as mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, well behaved children and badly behaved children. There were even some horses and dogs in the mix! Through role plays, the Year Two boys were able explore their responsibility in different relationships and perform their interpretations and learning to the rest of the class. This was used as an inquiry into the UOI, Healthy Relationships, which helped the boys to understand that the way we think and act can affect our relationships. The boys really enjoyed acting out their scenarios, and became quite expert in demonstrating the factors that lead to healthy and unhealthy relationships through the art of storytelling. | Erin Hunter Year 2 Prep Teacher The Year One Boys have really enjoyed a variety of experiences in their first Unit of Inquiry for the year - ‘Can You Sense it?’ In this unit the boys explored their five senses, looked at types of sensory impairment and ways that they could protect their senses. Our boys were wonderful inquirers. Some of the questions they asked included: What is colour blindness? How does a guide dog know where to go? How do you learn Braille if you can’t see? They particularly enjoyed our ‘Smelly Pot’ and ‘Tasting Tubs’ activities where they got to test their sense of smell and taste. | Kerrie Sigston top left: James Huang and David Wang top right: Martin Ngo, Nicholas Kiceec 1T participated in an activity using their highly trained senses of taste. The boys were blindfolded before tasting some mystery foods in each cup. Some of the findings were very surprising! | David Tait Year 2 at the Prep Can you sense it?
