Today the Year Three’s were very lucky to head over to the Year Four classrooms to do some reading with them. We were put into groups and given an informational text to read and discuss. In our groups, we took turns reading and talked to our peers about what we had learnt. We are looking forward to reading groups again next Wednesday!
To the wonderful Year Three families,
Please see our Year Three Parent Handbook for 2017, below. It was fantastic to see so many families last night and we are looking forward to the year ahead! Tiana Massimi and Chantelle Goodall
Last week in Year Three we were introduced to the shared laptops!
As you know, next year we will enter a 1:1 environment and so over the next semester we will be given a number of opportunities to use the laptops are part of our learning program.
We spent some time talking about how, devices like the laptops, can be a wonderful tool for learning. We also chatted about some of the important ‘do’s’ and ‘don’t’s’ in relation to responsible laptop use.
Some of the ideas we came up with included things like walking carefully and holding the laptop tight when we are carrying them from one place to another. Shutting them before carrying them, not allowing any food or drinks near them, laptops and generally caring for them responsibly was also discussed.
Jacob – I felt good, like a big kid. It was cool to use the laptops for the first time and I would like to learn more about what else we can do on them.
Caitlyn M – I felt responsible and I was really excited when the year fives and sixes brought them into our classroom. I also enjoyed learning new things about how to use them.
We love learning in Year Three and using the laptops is going to really give us even more opportunities to learn on many new and exciting ways!
