Classwork and Important Reminders

Assalamu Alaikum

Dear Parents,

Today we had a great day alhamdulilah!

Biography Projects: Saleh, Ayaan, and Aisha presented their projects, and masha'Allah they  did a an awesome job!

Language: We listened to the audio of Chinese folktale "The Empty Pot", and students summarized the story using SWBST independently.

Math: Today we learned FRACTIONS. We learned that a fraction is a part of a whole, and we watched a video where we explored different fractions.We also cut an apple to show equal share and parts using vocabulary like halves, thirds and fourths. Then, we completed pages 244 and 245 in our math books.

Gym:We went to the gym and played hockey, basket ball and Frisbee.

Science: We revised simple machines. Students were reminded of what a simple machine is and they gave examples of different simple machines. Today we learned about levers, and we explored different levers, and got to see the different positions of a fulcrum on 3 different types of lever. Students also completed a worksheet on levers.

Quran Homework: Practice Surah Al-Mutaffifin Ayahs 32 to 36.

  • We are going to the Museum of  Civilization on Thursday insha Allah. Please sign the form and send it to school tomorrow. 
  • Since we will be going on a field trip on Thursday, the 2As and 2Bs will have their Spirit Day on Friday in shaa Allah. 
Have a great evening!
