Dear Parents and Families,
We are now heading into Week 9 of online learning and it’s hard to believe the academic year will be coming to a close in just a few weeks.
After School Activities
Our KIS (optional) After School Activities are continuing this week and we hope the students are enjoying an opportunity to socialise and connect with their peers from across the PYP. These take place at 2:30pm. The rooms will be closed for joining as from 2:35. Here is the link for these activities:
Parent Zoom Meeting
Our weekly parent zoom meeting will be running at the usual time of 11am on Tuesday. Please feel free to join us for weekly updates and bring along any questions or feedback you may have. The link for the meeting will be sent to you via email.
What’s happening in G3 this week?
In UOI this week, students will begin to experiment with different digital media tools and compare what can be achieved when doing something on a digital platform as opposed to offline. They will be reflecting on, extending and enjoying creativity and building their appreciation of an aesthetic. Student’s will be exploring digital tools in Art, Music, Design and Gaming/Coding.
In language the students will view and discuss fictional animations to model the key story elements and consider an overall message or idea. They will comment upon and gain inspiration from best practice ‘Stop Motions’ and then start to plan out their own digital animation using a story board and directors notes.
This week in math we are continuing with our focus on data-handling. Students will be collecting, displaying and interpreting data from both bar charts and pie charts. They are continuing to develop mathematical language to support them in interpreting data and drawing conclusions.
Students will read independently or with an adult focusing on fluency, expression and comprehension skills. They will continue to participate in weekly library lessons with Ms Lindsay to develop specific reading skills such as inferencing, summarising and making connections to the text.
We continue to be blown away by the creative and critical thinking skills our amazing Grade 3 student’s are showing each day.
Thanks again for your ongoing support and partnership. We hope you all have a great week ahead.
