In Grades 5 and 6, we support students as they develop into confident, independent, happy and reflective learners. To assist students in reaching their full potential, our teachers collaboratively design meaningful and engaging units of work.
As part of our Term 1 Integrated unit, students have been exploring the concept of Identity. This will assist students to develop a greater awareness of self and effective strategies to deal with the curve-balls which life throws at us.
Through hands-on activities and inquiry, students have investigated how to capitalise their individual strengths and challenge their weaknesses in order to achieve their own emotional, social and physical greatness.
The concepts that students have investigated include multiple intelligences, responsible risk taking, character strengths, habits of the mind, social greatness, effective communication, overcoming conflict, having a growth mindset, and using positive self-talk.
To conclude our Identity unit, students will individually create a video reflecting upon the key concepts and ideas surrounding Identity. Students are to be silent throughout their presentations, only raising cards to present their information and using body language to communicate with the audience.
