Good afternoon Grade 3 parents and families.
We are looking forward to meeting with you all via Zoom for our Parent-Teacher Conferences over the next few days.
Some important reminders:
By now everyone should have signed up for an interview time on this sign-up sheet. If you haven’t managed to do this please contact your child’s teacher directly. As our meetings are being done via zoom they will look, and be a different experience for all of us. Here’s a couple of helpful guidelines for a successful conference.
- Please be on time for your meeting, the time period is not long, however teacher’s are meeting back to back throughout the day making punctuality important
- Try to find a location where you can have a focused and confidential conversation without distractions.
- If you haven’t already, please have a discussion with your child about their goals and what they are working on so you can use this information as a basis for your conference. This information was shared with you by the teacher earlier in the week.
- Please try to be a couple of minutes early to the conference and wait in the waiting room, you will be invited into the zoom room at your given conference time. “
Many thanks for your support, any questions or feedback welcome, please enjoy your conferences
Literacy: Students will be exploring descriptive language to help the reader to visualize something.
Connecting to our UOI materials work, students will play language/description games where they will need to choose the most suitable words to create the clearest description of an object, material or resource. Later in the week students can use their word banks to create a poem or riddle of ‘what am I’ to share with peers, incorporating interesting words.
Math: This week we will be challenging current thinking and application of multiplication strategies to solve word problems, introducing larger numbers. Students will take their current knowledge of solving more difficult multiplication/division number sentences and apply this to solving deeper level/mastery challenges and 1&2 step word problems.
UOI: Students will be exploring the source of a resource. Considering questions such as: where does the material come from? Is the source sustainable? What will happen if we keep taking that resource? Can we replace natural products at a quick enough rate? Students will be sorting and organising whether a material is natural or man-made and creating a definition for these terms.
As always, please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Hope everyone has a great week ahead!
