Dear Parents and families,
A warm welcome back for the new term. Despite the circumstances, we hope you all managed to spend some time with loved ones and enjoy each other’s company over the Songkran break.
We are excited to be back underway with our home learning today and the students have jumped straight back into their activities with enthusiasm and positivity.
We have started the term off by revisiting our learning routines and learners profiles as a way for students to reflect on what is working well and how they can make the most of learning opportunities this term.
As our sustainability unit comes to an end, we are looking forward to seeing students pulling their learning from across the unit into some creative posters focusing on ‘taking action’ later in the week.
This week our language tasks are exploring persuasion through advertising. We will focus on key features, comparing and contrasting current advertising slogans and then students will be applying their learning to create their own persuasive poster in connection with our sustainability unit and ‘World Earth Day’
We would like to encourage students to dress up in something green or blue on ‘World Earth Day’ (Wednesday 22nd of April) and we will enjoy celebrating together with connected activities throughout the day and week.
In math, we are going to be recapping our fractions learning then begin to make connections to decimals later in the week. IXL, Prodigy and Khan Academy are great platforms for students to practice applying their learning if they have completed their ‘Must Do’ task for the day.
You may have noticed that your child has Loom videos from each of the Grade 3 teachers today to explain the three different activities for the day. We are collaborating as a team to provide the best support possible to our students and hope that they will enjoy being more connected across the grade, just as us teachers are!
Please continue to encourage your children to find balance in their day, take regular breaks and be kind to themselves.
I would like to thank you all for your continued support as we know that online learning relies heavily on strong home-school partnerships. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or feedback about your child’s learning.
