It’s been another busy week in Grade 3 with lots happening in and around the classroom. We also have a few reminders of upcoming events to look out for…
House communities: House Day!
On Friday, in the PYP, we had our first house day, it was great to see all the students, across the school, joining in with the first house assembly. To kick start the day, Grade 3 enjoyed playing games outside with water balloons, it was a brilliant way for our students to get to know other children in the same house, earning some well deserved house points and having fun getting a bit wet.
UOI: Who We Are!
Grade 3 have hit the ground running with our first unit exploring ‘Who We Are’. We have been tuning into our central idea of ‘People can develop fair and inclusive communities through taking responsible action’. Children have set rights that they are entitled to and through learning about these we have started to think about what our responsibilities are within this. For example, all children have a right to education but what are our responsibilities within this?
Language: Dream Jars (identity)
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support with gathering items for our students to begin to create their dream jars to share a bit about themselves. This week, we will be writing our explanations of why these items are important.
Math: What makes a good Mathematician?
In Mathematics, we have been exploring what makes a good mathematician and what skills are required to be successful in math. Grade 3 came up with some brilliant ideas about which of the learner profile are needed; open-minded, principled, inquirer, risk-taker and committed.
Dated to remember:
