Time Zones Around the World

PicCollage  - Time Zones

In Year 5/6, our focus in Maths is on the topic of  time. One of our activities was to compare times around the world. This allowed students to explore and work with positive and negative numbers, addition and subtraction, as well as the concept of time. It also embraced geography and literacy with much rich discussion occurring in the classroom.

Social Justice Conference

On the 20th August, we have  the opportunity to send 15 students to the KidsView Social Justice Conference to be held at St James in Vermont. The conference focuses on discussing the challenges facing children in developing countries.

We ask that students apply to attend the conference by writing a letter to Mrs Engellenner. The letter should include reasons why they believe the school should select them to attend and how might they be able to be involved in some kind of Social Justice action after the conference.

All applications must be written in hard copy and be given to Mrs Engellenner by Thursday 13th August.
