For our “Where We Are in Place and Time” unit of inquiry, our class will be visiting the Ibn Battuta Mall to learn more about Ibn Battuta, the explorer. There is an interesting exhibition on this famous explorer in the mall and the students will also get to explore the different cultural themes around the building as a link to our social studies integration.
All grade 5 classes will be going together on Monday, November 9th. The students will leave UAS around 9:30 am and return to the school around 1:30 pm. We plan to eat lunch at the food court in the mall, however this will be at additional cost. If you would like your child to purchase his/her lunch at the mall, please provide him/her with an appropriate amount of money. If not, please have your child bring his/her lunch.
Aside from the optional cost for lunch at the mall, there is no cost for the field trip. Please sign the below permission form and return it to your child’s homeroom teacher no later than Sunday, November 8th. Any student who does not turn in the form by the deadline will be unable to attend this field trip.
Furthermore, if you would like to accompany us on the field trip, we would greatly appreciate it! We can take a maximum of four extra adults and it will be on a first respond, first serve basis per class (one parent supervisor per room). Please email your child’s homeroom teacher if you are able to join us.
As always, thank you for your support.
