In our MAPPEN unit ‘Into the Unknown’ we have been learning all about changes over time and the people who helped to shape our interconnected world. In partners, we have been working on a research project about an explorer from the ‘Age of Exploration’.
For this project we had to conduct research about an explorer using a given fact sheet and online search engines. We collected information about their birth and early life, principal voyages and their legacy (what they will be remembered for).
Once we gathered all of the information we needed, we explored the iPad App ‘Keynote’ and learnt how to use its many interesting and exciting features. We then had to create a Keynote presentation about our explorer to be presented to the class.
This project has been fantastic because we have learnt some interesting information about early explorers, practised our research and data collection skills and developed an understanding of how technology can help us to present information in engaging and fun ways.
We love engaging with our integrated learning in Year Three!

We hope you are keeping safe (and warm)!
As we continue our ‘Time’ learning in Mathematics, we kindly ask you to please continue to encourage and support your child to practise recognising and telling the time wherever possible.

On Friday 5th June the Year Three’s had a lesson in ‘Numero’. Numero is a fun, open-ended maths game that teaches students number facts for all four number operations.
Here are some of the amazing benefits of playing Numero:
- Improved mental computation
- Adaptable for any ability; with options to include different rules and operations
- Increases children’s confidence in Mathematical capabilities
- Encourages tactical thinking and thinking ‘outside the box’
We were lucky enough to have the expert help from our wonderful Year Sixes! The Year Six students peer mentored the Year Threes with professionalism and expertise, showing patience and kindness by explaining the rules and monitoring the game play.
We are very excited to be able to play Numero in Year Three!
This Wednesday in Year Three we celebrated our love of reading by participating in the National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS). NSS is an event held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association. Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator, is read simultaneously all around Australia.
This year’s book was ‘Whitney and Britney: Chicken Divas’, which is written and illustrated by Lucinda Gifford.
We enjoyed the (brief) spot of sunshine as we read this funny, dazzling and exciting story. While reading, we shared ideas about the characters, setting and plot and made connections between the story and our own lives.
After reading, we completed a book review to reflect on our personal opinions and feelings about the story.
We then enjoyed exploring our creativity and individuality by designing and decorating our very own ‘Chicken Divas’. It was lots of fun!

In Year Three we are learning how to write procedures. A procedure is a text that explains how to make or use something. This week we made Fairy Bread and then we applied our knowledge of procedural text structures and language features to write our own procedure.
We enjoyed this hands on experience with our friends and the Fairy Bread was really delicious!
Week Two has been a great week, with lots of learning and lots of fun!
To see the children’s smiling faces back at school and thoroughly enjoying each others company has been very special!
This week we have been learning all about time. Here we are playing a game of time bingo with a partner. Engagement, thinking and collaboration was high!
In maths we have been learning about the split strategy and how this can helps us solve maths problems easily.
