Good afternoon G3 Parents and Families,
Wow we have all made it to the end of Term 2. It hasn’t always been easy with the increasing numbers of staff and students getting covid. But thanks to the systems in place and the diligence of all of us constantly monitoring for any symptoms we have managed to stay in school for the majority of Term 2 YAY!
G3 students out did themselves this week in creating their classroom doors in the theme of Songkran. It was fab to see the kids work so productively and creatively together. We didn’t win but we definitely had lots of fun!
Well done4B PYP Songkran Door Winners!
This week UOI and Language were combined as students completed their reports on their chosen landforms. Students were able to share their reports with both students working remotely and in class in small groups. This was followed up with a final reflection on the unit.
Thursday & Friday the students were introduced to the rock cycle. We had a VIP aka a very important Parent expert join the grade over Zoom. Mr Indra, Nina’s dad, who is a Geophysicist. He gave a very informative and engaging presentation on the rock cycle and did a fab job at answering all the children’s questions. Thank You Indra, its always an added bonus when parents can share our learning journey!
Students enjoyed using candies to explore the steps and forces that work on rocks during the rock cycle.
On the Friday students had the opportunity to explore and find out about different types rocks through a range of different activities throughout the grade.
This week students were introduced to money and what they already know about money.
Students continued to work through the units using Wonder Reads in their class reading groups. There will be a combination of reading and writing activities for the students to do. 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.
Please find the planner for Term 2 Week 18th – 22nd April at this link.
Students will start the week with a Cold Write: where they will need to persuade someone to do/give/buy something for/to you. Through a self/peer review – students will identify what features would make an effective persuasive writing. Then students will use this to add/edit their own writing.
Students will continue to work through the units using Wonder Reads in their class reading groups.
Students will revisit finding the perimeter of regular and irregular shapes and explore converting units of measure.
