This week we have been learning about the value of money and how to use money in every day life. Today we set up shops in our classroom.We had $10.00 to spend and the shopkeepers gave us change.
At the end Our change plus our goods should have added up to $10.00!
Did the contents of your wallet add up to $10.00?
WOW! What an amazing morning we had celebrating the opening of the Olympic Games! 3A dressed in the French colors of red, white and blue. Each class (country) got to parade around the arena just like the athletes in the Olympic Games. We had drum players, doves (pigeons) released into the sky and even a cherry picker with the symbol of Rio on it. The Olympic Flame arrived on a motorbike (Mrs Booth and Steve) and a person from each grade level got to run around the arena with it. Mr Roskosch came back and was our master of ceremonies. We enjoyed having lots of parents join in too!
What was your favourite part of our opening ceremony?
This week our Character Strength focus is on Teamwork!
Today the students of 3A identified some of the aspects of good teamwork.
Each team was given a bag with some straws, a paper bag, a roll of tape and 2 paper cups. They were asked to work together to create the tallest free standing tower that they could.
The team that won was the team that sat and talked about their model. They were the slowest to begin but worked together really well to make the ONLY tower that could stand on its own!
After finishing the challenge we added to our posters some more aspects of what makes a good team and these were planning and working together, sharing jobs and respecting the views of others.
Can you name some more things that make good teamwork?
In class this week 3A students have been learning how to tell what time it is.
Last week everyone made their own clocks and created a game using their clocks.
Some of the games were quite complicated and it was fun working collaboratively and using our new understandings about time!
What is your favourite time of the day?
Today we are looking forward to welcoming our parents into our classroom!
We have filled a jar full of baby blocks and invite parents to estimate how many blocks are in the jar!
How many blocks do you think are in the jar?
It’s the last day of term 1 and everyone forgot to get dressed when they woke up this morning! I can’t work out what is going on!?
What at are you looking forward to doing on your holidays?
This afternoon we did some Easter activities and some of 3A performed an Easter themed play. They performed with gusto and humour. Their expression and wonderful acting skills made us all laugh!
