Please let me know if your child will be participating in the possum walk this Thursday evening at 6:30pm. Just a reminder that only the children in Year 3 will receive a sausage in a bun.
If you could bring in any recyclable items to the classroom, the Year 3’s will be greatly appreciative.
YEAR 3 ASSEMBLY
The year 3 assembly is scheduled for this Friday. The children have been asked to come to school dressed up as rappers. Anything will suffice, but a hat on backwards or sideways will be required. Please note that the children will need to change into their sports uniform after the assembly.
I am also hoping that each child will have a magnifying glass. If you have one at home, please send it to school with your child’s name clearly marked.
This week, our reading focus is ‘summarising’. For a narrative text, this strategy focuses on summarising story elements such as, characters, setting, problem and resolution.
The students will continue to write the draft copies of their narratives this week.
This week, the students will be continuing to review the concept of ‘time’. Whenever you get the chance, ask your child what the time is and guide them through the process. Those children that have mastered time, will be working on elapsed time.

1. Reading (readers) - 10mins
