Good afternoon G3 Parents and Families,
On Monday Grade 3 went up to play G4’s probability marble runs. It was lots of fun and many house points were won!
Today we had a musical treat as Visiting a cappella groups from Harvard University graced our Auditorium today!
Just before lunch after the a cappella groups had finished PYP bands entertained us further by playing some iconic songs!
HOLIDAY QUEENS BIRTHDAY
(School Closed Friday 3rd June)
Last Swim and Basket Fun Monday 6th June for Grade 3 Please see the schedule below.
G3 End of Year Class Party will take place on Wednesday 8th June.
Sadly, we are still unable to have parents on campus. We are asking for students to bring in a food or drink contribution, ideally individually wrapped food and drink items similar to the Christmas Party. We do have the ability to collect deliveries at the primary school gate like pizza etc which is great as we didn’t have this option at the Christmas Party.
We have some children with severe nut allergies within the grade so no nuts please!
Please email your child’s class teacher if you have any questions.
Students have continued to plan and draft their letter writing to parents or school to persuade and convince their family to make some serious lifestyle changes to help reduce the family’s carbon footprint. Students will use the O.R.E.O structure and persuasive devices to help support their opinions.
Students have continued creating and building their sustainable homes on Minecraft.
Students designed their own Google form to collect information. (It had to be connected to the unit.) Students will complete the google form, collate information into a table of results. Students will then explore and create different charts using information collected on Google Sheets e.g.bar graphs and pie charts.
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. Students should be reading three Raz books a week.
D.E.A.R Time on Friday.
