Week 4 term 4

A message from Mrs Nimmo


Dear Year 3 Parents,
This term students have been given one piece of music (Jingle Bells) to master. I am impressed with how well most students are already able to play this piece on recorder and the enthusiasm with which they are learning to play it on ukulele.  On Monday 18th November, all students will be assessed on their ability to play Jingle Bells on the recorder only.  Please ensure your child is prepared for Monday's lesson with their recorders and music folders.     
Please email me if you have any questions.

Week 7

Good afternoon and welcome to week 7.
The research assignment I send home last week is due tomorrow, so please support your child to remember them for tomorrow. We will be commencing our Information reports tomorrow, so the research is vitally important. Well done to those students who have either already brought their research in, or completed it during lunch today.
This Friday is our assembly which we have been practicing. Here are some further details for you. The children have either been given a part and will dress to match their character  OR are asked to come dressed as their Dad, either his occupation or his hobby. If they would prefer to just come casually then we ask them to wear jeans, t-shirt/ jumper and joggers please.
The children will need to bring their sports uniform to get changed into after the assembly.

Week 6

Good afternoon and welcome to week 6.
Today I have sent home a research project for the students to complete.  The research will be used to complete an information report in week 7 and gives the students the opportunity to choose an Australian place of interest on which to write an information report.  I have included a planning template and a page outlining the task.  Please support your child to complete the research required.  I have also told the students that I have books that can be used if they do not have any research books at home.  Although the research is primarily to be completed at home, I will also make myself available at lunch time later in the week to enable students to complete some of this task at school if they need access to the internet or books.

Week 4

Good afternoon and welcome to week 4...already!!

This week we have been continuing with our learning around what happens to materials when we add heat.  We also learned about what happens when we remove head from a liquid, and as you can see had plenty of fun chocolate welding.  The best thing about this activity isn't the chocolate or marshmallows (because we didn't even get to eat any!!) but the problem solving and teamwork that is necessary to make the tallest self-sustaining tower possible while we look at chocolate changing from a liquid to a solid!!
