Good afternoon G3 Parents and Families,
Wednesday 23rd March was World Math Day. This year was extra special as Mathletics were celebrating 15 years of World Maths Day. G3 Mathletes got to flex their maths brains, working their way through 20 levels competing with many schools from around the world.
This week UOI and Language were combined as students worked super hard on researching and creating their reports on their chosen volcanoes. The highlight having the opportunity to create their own volcanoes both in school and remotely and watching the movie journey to the centre of the earth.
Please enjoy looking at the – G3 Volcanoes Padlet
Besides preparing for mathletics and World Maths Day, students continued to explore their understanding of fractions by looking at finding fractions of different amounts.
Students continued to work through the units using Wonder Reads in their class reading groups. There will be a combination of reading and writing tasks for the students to complete.
Students will use a range of reading platforms (ORT, library books, Raz, Epic & Newslea) to read for pleasure at an instructional level. Students are encouraged to apply and use reading strategies when reading both independently and with an adult.
G3B & G3C, got to visit the DP Visual Arts Exhibition.
Please find the planner for Term 2 Week 10 – 28th March – 1st April at this link.
Students will start their individual project next week. Students will need to decide which landforms they would like to research further and find the answers to the questions they have written. They will need to do the following:
- Write their own research questions
- organise their research notes using the Cornell Note taking
- Plan out their non-fiction report/presentation for their chosen landform
- which platform will they use e.g. Canva/Powtoon/Google Slides/Jamboard etc
- Which non-ficiton features will they use to best support their research and findngs
Students will continue to work through the units using Wonder Reads in their class reading groups.
If you would like to share traditional tales or stories, in your mother tongue please get in touch with your child’s class teacher and we can arrange a Zoom or Google meeting.
Students will continue exploring fractions by Finding Fractions of a number and apply this in different contexts and word problems.
