In Maths, we have been focusing on place value. So far, we have listened to a song and played some games that have helped us to learn more about the importance of numbers, and their individual value. One of the games that we played was called ‘Roll it! Make it! Expand it!’
We take turns rolling a die, to make a number in the hundreds place. We then roll again to find numbers to take the tens and ones places. We then use the MAB blocks to make the number we have rolled. After that, we expand the number, by writing out the value of each number we rolled at the start of the game.
Next week, we are going to try to roll, make and expand numbers in the thousands!
Love the Year Three Students
A little Year 2 boy earnestly told me (with a beaming smile) this morning, how his dad had to work tonight so his Mum ‘snooked’ some cards into his bag as a big surprise …. very romantic and it wasn’t lost on their son! Absolutely wonderful! Hopefully dad had something lovely up his sleeve for Mum too? 🙂
Ok, “sneaked” is the correct standard past tense and past participle form of “sneak” and the word he was probably looking for! But hey, in another few years who knows, ‘snook’ might just be a new word!
Happy Valentine’s day everyone … may the love of those dear to you, and of a God who knows you through and through, nurture and sustain you, today and all the days of your life!
Just a short message to thank you all most sincerely for your donations of food today …. your generosity was greatly appreciated by the Tarandetti family.
Small gestures of kindness such as this, help a grieving family to know that they are being thought of in a very special way by people who really care.
Please keep Jack, his dad John, and all the family in your prayers during the difficult months ahead.
Once things settle a little we will share how you might like to support the family with a practical one -off meal or go on a more regular roster.
Thanks again and all the very best for the term ahead.
What a great start to the year we have had, here in Year Three!
During our first week as Year Three students, we spent a lot of time learning about:
- Our new teachers
- Our new classmates
- What is expected of us now that we’re in middle primary
- How we can spread kindness
- The new play areas we can use during recess and lunch times
- How we can signal to use the toilet, without using our voice
- A new game called ‘Kick Ball Cricket’
- and lots more!
Next week, we can look forward to finding out about our first Purposeful Practice Grids (Look out for the grid in the blue note folder that goes home each day)! We are also very excited for the St. Emilie’s Family Picnic on Friday afternoon!
Love the Year Three Students & Teachers, 2019
