As part of our focus on sustainability we have been discussing lots of ways to ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’. We came up with lots of ways to do this…
‘walk or ride instead of driving a car’
‘handing down clothes to younger siblings or cousins’
‘having a compost bin’
‘reusable shopping bags’
‘repurposing old materials and making something new’
‘washing cars on the lawn’
Just to name a few!
We had a go at repurposing old T-shirts and turning them into a bag. They look great and after testing them out we are happy with how much they actually hold too!
We are also, creating sculptures out of recycled materials to enter in the ‘2019 Earth Assist Recycled Art Competition.’ Some pretty creative creatures are starting to take shape…
We cant wait to show off the finished product!
These are a work in progress, but I wonder if you can tell what type of animal each one could be? Stay tuned for the end result!
It’s hard to believe that our first term in Year 3 is almost finished. The last few weeks have been spent celebrating our achievements and consolidating our learning. Thank you so much to everyone who was able to visit us on Open Night and share in our learning journey.
“I loved showing my family my magazine profile art and having them guess who was me. It was challenging and fun!” – Trent
“My favourite part was showing my narrative on Book Creator because I was very proud of it.” – Ava
“I loved playing the Maths games with my family because it was fun being the teacher and for once I felt like I knew more about something.” – Abby
“I was so happy showing my family everything because I put in a lot of effort.” – Thomas M
As you know we have also been preparing ourselves to be great role models for our Kindy Buddies and this week we finally got to meet them. We shared a story with our buddy and worked together on an Easter colouring activity.
The Year 3 students made their buddies feel so welcome and safe. They did a fantastic job of finding out a bit about what their buddy likes, answering questions that their buddy had and giving their buddy lots of praise for their amazing colouring in, drawing and writing.
Dear Parents, Thank you for your support this term. I hope you have a wonderful Easter break and I look forward to working together again in Term 2.
