International Women’s Day

Greetings Platypuses,

This week in maths we have been learning about positional language and co-ordinates

Can you describe where 3 items in the room are using positional language?

E.g. The plant is next to the fruit bowl

This week also learnt about International Women’s Day. We were a few days late as I was away on actual International Women’s Day (Friday 8th March) but better late than never! In class we discussed the importance of treating everyone the same, as we are all equal. We talked about how women all over the world – even in our own country! – aren’t always treated equally and how we must do our part to make sure we make things better.

What does it mean to treat someone as an equal?

Can you think of a way someone might treat a woman or girl in a way that is not equal

Remember even if you are a boy this affects you too – don’t we all have the right to be treated equally? Wouldn’t the world be happier if we are all treated equally? Doesn’t your mum, grandma, sister or other important female adult deserve to be treated equally and with respect

Below is our International Women’s Day playlist. Watch the first video and talk about the questions it raises with your adults.

Watch the following video with the 2 children doing karate. What do you think of Eva? What do you think of Jude?

Watch the rest of the videos. Have you learnt something new? 

I hope all Platypus adults found Parents’ Afternoon/Evening helpful, thank you for coming 🙂 

I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of exploring, reading, writing, sleeping, eating, singing, dancing, playing, talking, homework, Mathletics and of course don’t forget to comment on the blog!

It will be Green Team‘s turn for Show and Tell on Tuesday. Please only bring in toys when it is your colour team’s turn for Show and Tell as they can easily get lost 😦

Homework is due in on Mondays

Please wear your PE kit on Monday and make sure all your belongings (school uniform, PE kit, book bag etc.) have your name in/on them. 

I look forward to seeing you again tomorrow! 🙂
