Our responsibility to the young minds and hearts that we learn alongside each day is to ensure that learning at Annesley is significant, relevant, engaging and challenging. Our learners are capable thinkers and, as impending caretakers of our world, deserve a conceptually rich, globalised program of inquiry. It has been a joy to see this learning shared with families during Learning Celebrations at the end of term.
In the ELC, students with their families have made maps, collaborative artworks, thinking puzzles and viewed an Art Gallery
Reception students shared their Sharing the Planet Unit of Inquiry demonstrating what they have learnt about the role of plants in our world and how to care for them.
Year 1 have been visiting the Central Market and next term will invite families to their marketplace, putting into action their understanding of their marketplace Unit of Inquiry.
Year 2 students have been town planners and this week showcased their built towns, information and news reports as a culmination of their learning in the How the World Works Unit of Inquiry.
Students in Base 3 shared their animal habitats, showcasing their understanding of their Sharing the Planet unit ‘Changes to the balance of ecosystems can impact the survival of living things’.
Base 4 students created a Wax Museum in Gillingham Hall. Using dramatic characterisation, they portrayed wax exhibits of explorers who have written the history books, sharing their research that deepened their inquiry into Where We are In Time and Place.
Base 5 students invited parents and grandparents in on Monday to share their migration stories, young and old, as well as some food from their home lands.
