Today is INTERNATIONAL TEACHER’S APPRECIATION DAY!

Thankfully we don’t need to look far to find some great people who fill this role!

Thank you to our Erica Teachers who day in, day out, weekly, monthly and yearly give of themselves to make a difference in the lives of all the young ladies who pass through their classrooms.

Enjoy an extra special Teacher’s Day (especially during the holidays!)

Ending the term with a BANG!

Three of our learners were invited to participate in the Natural Science Olympiad for schools in the Eastern Cape.

Representing us to the best of their abilities were:

I’sha Kamba
Jordon Scholtz (3rd place in her age category)
Dion Duri (1st place in her age category)

Congratulation to all three girls and their NS teachers for all their hard work and for achieving such great results!

Gr 5 MATHS

Our Maths teachers are at it again, teaching creatively!

Our girls were tasked with consolidating their learning of fractions, by creating board games.
They then had the opportunity share their games with their classmates during a Maths board game session in the hall.

(Note: all COVID-19 protocols were followed whilst the girls participated in this learning experience)

Gr 6 PHYS ED

Thinking outside the box is one of the skills our teachers have had to use during these COVID times.

Our Grade 6 girls enjoyed Phys Ed with a difference!

A competitive game of Rock/Paper/Scissors (Ching-Ching-Cha!) with the loser per round being sent for “colour-coded” penalties.

What were the penalties you may ask!
- lunges
- planks
- sit-ups
- supermans

Not only is it great to see our girls enjoying time outdoors, but to see them enjoying a creative exercise time is even better!

GR 5 HISTORY

Interactive learning is so important. Our girls learned about the ancient water system called the “Shaduf”.

Each learner prepared for a practical assessment by building their own Shaduf system and had to show how it worked.

GRADE 2 FOCUS ON TRANSPORTATION

Our Grade Twos have been learning all about the different modes of Transport.

They were tasked with using everyday recyclable objects and to construct 3D models of Land Transport.

It looks like our families had fun assisting their daughters with this assignment, we even noticed that the girls had designed personalised number plates.

GRADE 5 SHOWCASE

Our Geography has been all about the weather! We have enjoyed some practical learning whilst looking at different weather instruments.

We learned about and built Rain Gauges - but it didn’t rain that week for us to test them out!

We also learned about and built a Wind Vane.

This was a fun activity which helped consolidate learning!

100 DAYS BRIGHTER

The school was over-run by a lot of “Makhulus, Oumas, Nannas and Grannies” today.

Some had a head full of curlers, others had grey hair, they all had wrinkles and sore backs, and were wearing Pearls and spectacles!

What fun was had today as our Grade 1 learners celebrated their first 100 days at BIG school (naturally you are an old granny after being at school for 100 days 😊).

So much learning has already been done this year. It was such a treat to celebrate this milestone with a parade around the school showing off their best granny look, by making crowns and threading 100 rings onto a necklace.

Our girls may have looked liked grannies but our teachers felt like grannies at the end of the day!

What fun! Congratulations to our girls and teachers for all your hard work and fun!

GOING FOR GOLD!

The closing of the 2020/1 Olympics last week had our Grade 1 and 2 girls in a buzz!

Our girls learnt all about the Olympics. They had so much fun making Olympic torches, participating in many different races and activities, writing about the history of the Olympics and finally getting on to the podium to celebrate their achievements.

A Gold Medal Week. 🏅

We have some finalists in our midst!

Congratulations to 8 of our Grade 7 learners.

The theme for the MathArt Competition this year was “Beautiful Maths”

More about the competition ⬇️

Entrants are given an opportunity to share , in their own words, more about their mathematical and creative processes by answering three questions which are an important component of their competition entry.

NATURAL SCIENCE: Learning through Investigation.

We experimented with different substances to see "Change of State" in action. We saw how butter, ice and chocolate changed when exposed to heat!

We also practised our new skills by drawing bar graphs.

It was certainly chilly enough to be working through our Winter Theme this week!

It was a full week of learning about the coldest season of the year:

- We created beautiful winter artwork.
- We felt the winter chill in the mornings.
- We donated Winter Woolies for those less fortunate.
- Best of all was making our own cup of Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows to end the week!

GRADE 5 SHOWCASE

Creative learning was in full effect, as Grade 5 learners were tasked with building a River System model as part of their Social Sciences:Geography Term 2 mark.

The instructions were clear:
- build a 3D model
- use environmentally friendly material (recycle and reuse)
- little to no cost

Looks like it was no problem for our Erica girls!
