Eventful week for Gr. 5:
Future Studies and Helsinki University Math Lab
Gr. 5 visited Helsinki University's Math Lab and got to work on different problem solving exercises. Students took on the challenge and worked excitedly through the session. The writable desks were a hit! https://blogs.helsinki.

Gr. 5 also spent a day doing future studies as part of Sitra's #tulevaisuuspaiva event. The goal was to learn to spot signals of changes and understand that there are many different possible futures and that we can effect our future by our actions. Students practised spotting weak signals, trends and megatrends, and created their own visions of their learning in the year 2025.
