The year 3 children in Room 3 have been learning about landforms such as volcanoes, mountains, hills, lakes & plains. On Wednesday, they practiced sketching four different landforms and next week they will create a painting of a landform of their choice. The colourful sketches look great on the classroom wall!
We had an excellent day on Tuesday with students participating in the Ride On bike safety programme. A big thank you to our wonderful parent helpers; Mr Reidie, Mrs Hopoi, Mrs King & Mrs Parker.
Last week we started experimenting with descriptive writing. We looked at examples of descriptive writing & came up with many descriptive words to describe objects around the school and classroom. On Thursday, we wrote a description of the Cat in the Hat & on Friday we published our writing on Google Docs. At the same time we experimented with using different fonts and colours.
During Week 1, many children also said their term scripture! Well done to those children! They will receive their certificate at next Monday's assembly.
We have had some trouble in class logging some children onto lesson zone for reading. I think we have finally ironed out all the problems & those who needed one have been given a new username and password. Please make sure your child is logging onto the Australian lesson zone website, not the NZ one - the username and password will not work if they are on the wrong site. The correct website is www.lessonzonekids.com.au.
Let me know if there are anymore problems!
