The Middle Syndicate's big idea for the year is
THE CHALLENGE OF CHANGE
Changes to Ourselves and in Our World
This term we are focusing on the changes in our environment -
life and water cycles
and the changes in our bodies - growing older
Last week we used a venn diagram to brainstorm the things that don't change in the development from a baby to a child and the things that do change.
You can see that we have added our ideas onto silhouettes of a baby and children.
This week we are keeping an eye on the changes in Room 15's caterpillars (because ours died).
Marvin is fascinated by the caterpillars
and loves getting up close to observe them.
Can you see one even crawled onto his nose!
During SSR Marvin read all about the life cycle of the caterpillar and then shared his learning with his buddies in the reading corner.
Marvin was so excited when he found out that we were learning about the Challenge of Change. He said he fitted right in!
What did he mean by that?
Well, Marvin has had a big change of environment by visiting us all the way from Hastings.
Room 14 listed some of the changes Marvin has had...
the children and teachers
where he sleeps
the school work
We think he has coped extremely well with the changes.
