Next week Grade 3 will be very busy getting things finished before the end of the year and preparing for the spring show on Wednesday.
Things to remember:
There will be no more homework for the last two weeks of school.
Monday – students need to wear or bring black pants as we will be having a full dress rehearsal.
Wednesday – Spring Show – 6.30pm start. Please be here by 6.15pm so that students have enough time to get their costumes on and get organised.
Tuesday 5th – Elementary sports day. Grade 3 will be wearing black t-shirts. Please ensure that your child has a black t-shirt prior to Tuesday.
It will be a busy and eventful last two weeks of school!
Next week the students will be taking part in various end of year tests for math, reading and writing.
Aside from that, we will be running a normal schedule.
Math: Students will be plotting coordinates on a gride.
Reading: Students will be inferring the meaning within a text.
Writing: Students will continue writing their Fairy Tale. They have now all chosen an original Fairy Tale and decided on how they will make a meaningful change to the story.
UOI: Students will be learning about different cultures and exploring the things that make them unique.
This week we started practicing for the Spring Show which is on Wednesday 30th of May. In Grade 3 the students will need to wear black pants, these could be jeans or tights (the top will be provided). We encourage students to be practicing the dances at home. Grade 3 will be dancing to Kung Fu Fighting and will be dancing to Boogie Wonderland with Grade 2. The whole school song will be Tiger Feet.
We really made the most of the nice weather this week by getting outside as much as possible!
UOI: Students will be investigating different celebrations, beliefs and traditions from around the world, and will be comparing these with their own beliefs and values.
Math: Students are learning to read a map and follow directions using North, South, East, West.
Literacy: Students will choose a fairy tale that they would like to adapt and will start to think about the changes they might make.
Thank you all for coming to the Grade 3 Parent Tea this morning. The students loved sharing their learning with you all and doing some physical activity. We hope you enjoyed getting the chance to see what they have been working on in school.
Next week we will be starting our new unit “Who We Are”. The central idea for this unit is: The beliefs and values of a society provide a framework for social behaviour. The lines of inquiry are: The beliefs and values of cultures, different belief systems influence behaviour and traditions, similarities and differences among belief systems.
Don’t forget that it is a long weekend. School starts back on Wednesday.
Enjoy your break!
