As part of our Relationships Unit of Inquiry, we explored the similarities and differences between our class members. To further expand on how we are similar and different, this week we shared our Family Frames. This sharing was the culmination of a transdisciplinary process combining Art, Math, Social Studies and Language elements.
As we continue our inquiry into Relationships we have started to ask “how are people the same?” and “how are people different?” This has blended nicely with sharing information about our lives with each other.
As we move beyond the first weeks of school we are digging deeper into our first Unit of Inquiry on Relationships.
During our unit of inquiry into storytelling, we have been working on telling and retelling stories, sharing ideas and presenting information. We have also had a subject focus on Art, both creating it and responding to it. In preparation for our Term 2 Celebration, the Peace & Unity class worked together on a performance that combined elements of Storytelling, Visual Art, Music and Literacy.

Recently our class experimented with Teacher-chosen Peer Groups. A provocation designed to challenge students and see how they could use the relationship-building skills we’ve been working on since the beginning of the year.
In extending our relationship building and going further with our Unit of Inquiry on ‘Relationships’, we visited the Excellence Class earlier this week. The Excellence Class were wrapping up their Unit of Inquiry on ‘Play’; where they planned for, designed, and created toys for others to play with. We were invited by their class to go in and play with them and the toys they had made. We were very excited!
