Friday 3rd December


Good afternoon G3 Parents and Families and wishing a Happy Hanukkah to all of those who celebrate this week.

It has been another busy week in Grade 3 as we work on preparing our organisations before welcoming digital visitors next week. We have been exploring the idea that ‘Mission statements provide a shared goal for organisations to strive towards’ Throughout this unit students have been inquiring into the purpose and function of different organisations and applying their understanding of these concepts into creating their very own organisation inspired by their own passions. It has been an amazing journey so far and we are really looking forward to seeing the first practice run on Wednesday. 

It has been amazing to watch the students take agency and collaborate with each other driven by a shared passion and goal. We would like to thank you all for your continued support in the program and wish you an enjoyable weekend ahead. 

Check out some of our photos from the week:

Looking ahead:

Please find the planner for Week 17– December 7th – 10th (Monday Holiday)  – at this link.

Students have been very busy last week planning for their organisation presentation. 

Answering the following questions below

  • Who will lead this part?
  • What will be shared? 
  • How long will this part take?
  • How will you start your session 
  • What will customers do?
  • What do they need to participate?
  • What resources need to be prepared?
  • How will you end the session?
  • Will there be some kind of reflection to be completed after the session e.g. Google form.

If students have completed all of the above  they will start thinking how they can advertise their organisations e.g. website, flyers etc.

Students we be split randomly into two groups 

  •  Organisation Presentation 1: Wednesday 8th 9:50-10:20
  •  Organisation Presentation 2: Wednesday 8th 10:30-11:00

Students will present and take part in an organisation this Wednesday.

Language – 

Language time this week will be used to support UOI and Portfolio’s. 

Again this week there will be some dedicated time for students to work on their Portfolios. Portfolio templates have been shared in Google Classroom. We are encouraging students to find evidence of their work they want to use in their portfolios

Areas they need to find an example of work for:

  • Who we are
  • How we express ourselves
  • How we organise ourselves 
  • Maths 
  • Reading 
  • Writing 
  • Learner profiles 
  • ATL Skills 

Students will be  designing a flyer, poster or making a movie to advertise their organisations. 

Math – 

This week students will be formally introduced to arrays  to solve multiplication problems building on from repeated addition.


Mental starters/warm up games will focus on Skip counting games and activities. E.g. Skip counting connections between repeated addition, arrays and multiplication.  Students will have opportunities to make connections and see the relationship between arrays, repeated addition and multiplication. Students will also continue to tune in and engage with a range of vocabulary connected to addition and multiplication:

Students will:

  • build
  • draw
  • explain 
  •  justify and prove their findings and solutions to problems.


Modelling Multiplication with arrays

Weekly mental maths working on their mental agility and confidence in +/-/x  number

Reading – 

Vocabulary Acquisition – students focusing on reading for meaning and noticing any new or unfamiliar vocabulary as they read. Using tools such as a thesaurus and dictionary to extend and develop understanding of a text.

Asking and answering questions about texts they are reading to build comprehension skills and understanding. Students will also use a range of reading platforms (ORT, library books, Raz and Epic) to read for pleasure at an instructional level. Students will apply and use reading strategies when reading.



Here you can find both the remote learning and the in class learning schedules that we will be starting from Monday. Please note that all specialist classes, apart from Thai, will take place when students are at home. Please see the schedule and if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
