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.
Every Friday, after lunch, the Year Three students play sport with Miss Goodall, Mrs Green and Miss Halton. We have played a variety of different team games so far, which helps keep our minds and bodies fit and healthy. This week we played Tee-ball, so that we could practice our batting and fielding skills, following on from Mr Davis’ sport class on Wednesday. Some important Tee-ball tips include;
- Running to the right, after we hit the ball
- Making sure we hit the bat to the ball, and not the tee
- Dropping the bat, and not throwing it, once we’ve hit the ball
- Staying outside the diamond, when fielding, unless we are the ‘in-fielder’
- Making sure we keep our eyes on the ball
We are already looking forward to next Friday, to play a game for Year Three Sport!
Love the Year Three Students
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
