Week 1 Literacy Celebrations Term Three

READ AROUND THE WORLD CHALLENGE

We have been exploring the annual Book Week theme through the lens of the  PYP.  The theme is Australia My Story Country which we have adapted to exploring story through World Stories (using the continents as a way to organise these countries).

We have selected books from each continent that can be shared over the course of the term.

Week 1  JS Library Makerspace

Explore the world through BeeBots

Students programmed the BeeBots to travel the world after answering a series of country and continent questions in a group of their choice.  These students successfully were able to execute a programme and troubleshoot. The BeeBots and the world map are available each break for students to continue  their world exploration.
