FIRST COMMUNION HELPERS
Thank you to all the parents who have put their name down already. We are still in need of some parents to donate some time on the day. This will help with the preparation of the food (09:00 – 10:30), serving of the food (10:30 – 11:30) and cleaning (11:00 – 12:00). If you are able to help on the day, please put your name down ASAP. Remember, the favour is repaid next year when your children are receiving the Sacrament of the Eucharist.
As the children have completed their Mental Maths, there is a slight change to the Maths homework. The children have been given 4 activities to be completed by the end of the week. Each activity has been explained and there are no new concepts, so they should be able to complete each task with minimal supervision.
The Year 3 Design Hub will be up and running next week. If you could save any suitable building materials from the recycling bin and drop them into the class, that would be great!
YEAR 3 ASSEMBLY
The year 3 assembly is scheduled for Friday Week 6. Hopefully, many of you will be able to make it on the day. I will let you all know if anything is needed from home.
This week, our reading focus is ‘making connections’. Making connections is when readers make connections between:
When readers connect a text to something they know or have experienced, they can understand it better.

This week, the students will be learning about ‘grids and maps’.
