We're thrilled to bring you the latest update from our 3/4 room! Term 3 has been exciting, filled with a range of engaging events and learning experiences. We completed of our first round of clubs and are now into round two. Clubs has provided the chance for students to explore their interests outside of the typical classroom. The enthusiasm and participation are truly heartwarming to witness. Our fun Science Week was a blast, offering students hands-on experiences that ignited their curiosity about the world around them. Witnessing their excitement during this week was a true joy for all of us. We also had a visit from the Healthy Heroes, who taught us about the importance of staying fit and making healthy choices. This was an interactive and informative session that left a positive impact on our students. Another highlight was the Crow Kids Puppetry performance held at the local Birregurra Hall. The colourful puppets and captivating story had students entertained, making it a memorable event for all who attended.
In our learning journey, our Sounds Write sessions have been focusing on prefixes, expanding our understanding of language and its components. In the realm of reading, we've been immersed in our novel study of "The Barrumbi Kids" by Leonie Norrington. Through this, we've been honing our comprehension skills using various strategies, making our reading experience even more enriching.
In Writing, our attention has been on sentence structure and punctuation within compound sentences. Additionally, we're in the process of drafting and beginning the publication of narrative stories inspired by dreaming. This has allowed our students to unleash their creativity and share their unique voices.
We've been delving into problem-solving strategies that challenge our minds and critical thinking abilities during Mathematics lessons. We've also been exploring transformation patterns, unlocking the fascinating world of shapes and their changes. Recording probability as fractions has been another area of focus, enhancing our mathematical skills in a practical context.
During our Inquiry sessions, we are persistently uncovering more about our planet and its position within the solar system. Specifically, we're focusing on the phases of the moon, enhancing our comprehension of the enchanting cosmic performance that unfolds in the skies above us.
Looking ahead, we are eagerly anticipating the upcoming JUST! Performance at COPACC in the coming weeks.
