We have had a very productive and fun time in Year 3 this year. It has been very busy and we have achieved many things. This Term has been the busiest of all.
It has been very exciting. We are really looking forward to Technology this term. In STEM we are designing and creating our own rollercoaster in Minecraft and in class, with Mrs Throssell, we are researching, creating and testing Marshmallow Launchers. Year 3 is lots of fun!
We had a very busy end to our Term 2. We celebrated our First Reconciliation, went on an excursion to the Shipwreck Museum in Fremantle and we were also lucky enough to participate in a number of incursions.
This term has started just as busy and promises to get even busier. We have already had another incursion and started our Edu Dance lessons. We are also preparing for the Bishops Religious Literacy Assessment. After that we have our Year 3 Assembly to look forward to and another excursion! All of this on top of our normal work! It really looks like we’re going to be kept busy this term!
Term 2 news…
It’s been an extremely busy start to the term for our Year 3 class. Sadly we had to say farewell to Miss Carey at the end of last term, but we welcomed back Mrs Throssell. So far this term we have had Bunnings visit us to help us make a Mother’s Day present, presented the Mother’s Day Mass and hosted our Mum’s in the classroom for a Mother’s Day morning, participated in a Reconciliation night and Retreat in preparation for Reconciliation later in the term and finally completed NAPLAN for the first time! Phew! That doesn’t even include all the learning that has taken place. Hopefully things will slow down for us over the next few weeks!
Previously in Year 3…
Welcome to Year 3 for 2019. Year 3 is a big transition from junior primary but the students have been adjusting well to their new classroom and new routines.
Each morning when they come in, they have been completing daily maths activities that help to consolidate their understanding of place value, and they have been exploring different ways to represent and work with larger numbers. The students have been proving that they are great mathematical thinkers and I look forward to continuing this work with them throughout the term.
This year, the Year 3 class will be working alongside the Kindergarten students as part of our school buddy program. The Year 3’s are eager to meet their Kindy buddy for the first time and spend some time getting to know them.
I look forward to seeing parents and family at next week’s ‘Parent Information Afternoon’. It is a great way to hear about what is happening in the class and to get to know what will be expected for your child throughout the year.
