As part of the Science unit on light and sound, our wonderful EAP students are currently carrying out their own investigations into how sound waves travel through different media. They are conducting their own research using materials such as sound meters and different sized paper cups, as well as copper wire, flax, thread and string of varying lengths. As usual, they have been instructed to design their experiment so that it incorporates only one independent variable.
Many of our wonderful grade 5 students were able to demonstrate their learning earlier today, when a class of pre-schoolers visited a Science class.
The presence of so many keen and inquisitive minds created a real buzz in the room, as our 5th graders gladly stepped up to the plate and passed on their newly-acquired wisdom about worms to their younger peers.
This short film highlights the excitement generated.
This week in Science, our EAP students have been continuing their study of observations and inferences. In order to help them prepare for next week’s Science assessment, we have also incorporated this into our work in EAP classes.
Meanwhile in Ms. Walsh’s classroom, some of our EAP students have been lucky enough to engage in a wonderful hands-on experiment with milk, food dye and soap. This clearly enabled them to show their knowledge and understanding, as well as demonstrate how they are now able to transfer their learning to a real-life situation.
Here are some action shots of our talented EAP students at work.
Welcome to grade 5 EAP! It promises to be another exciting year of language learning here at ISM.
Please find below a copy of the letter which was distributed to all EAP students at the start of the new academic year 2014-15.
Many thanks to all of those parents who have already completed the questionnaire enclosed at the end.
I’m very much looking forward to meeting as many of you as possible at Open House on Wednesday August 27th. In the meantime, you’ll find most of the information you need about how to best support your child during the coming year enclosed below.
