Big Talk Homework

1

Posted by Jane Doye | Posted in Homework | Posted on November 8, 2017

Dear Family,

This week at school, our Big Write topic is a recount of my experience at Somers Camp last week.

I need to think about two or three really exciting things that happened and write a detailed recount of those things. I am not going to write about the whole 3 days of camp, because I will not be able to give detailed information about every day in the time I will be given to write.

I need to talk about my ideas for my recount with as many family members as possible so that my writing is creative and interesting for my readers.

We will be writing in class on Thursday (TOMORROW), so any conversations we have at home tonight would be extremely valuable to share during our Big Talk and Big Write time. This can be done on the drive or walk home from school, or while we are eating dinner. No need for notes.

Can you also please help me with some V.C.O.P for my writing?

V – adjectives, adverbs, WOW words

– connectives to use instead of “then”

– think of a creative opener to start my recount

– talking marks, exclamation marks, commas and capitalisation

Thanks, Year 3 students and teachers

Camp

Hi Parents,

There are only two more sleeps until the Year 3 students are off on their adventure to Somers Camp!

A reminder to be at school to sign in any medication for your child at 8:15am. If you do not need to sign in any medication please make sure you are at school before 8:45am as this is when we will be loading luggage onto the busses. We will leave shortly after 9am.

On Wednesday students will need to have a packed snack, lunch and drink bottle so please make sure this is in your child’s backpack to go on the bus and not in their other luggage bags. Please make sure your child has a pillow, sleeping bag and sheet.

Looking at the forecast there could be a chance of some rain so please pack a rain coat as activities will still go ahead if it is only a light shower.

See you all Wednesday!!!!

Mrs Doye 😄

Talk Homework

0

Posted by Jane Doye | Posted in Homework | Posted on October 18, 2017

Dear Parents,

This week, I need to write a PROCEDURE about a topic of choice. I can look at the pictures on this page to help me decide on an interesting topic, or choose one of my own.

I need to talk about my ideas with my family and decide on a goal, needs, steps and a check to include in my report.

I need to remember my VCOP skills.

Vocab – include verbs to describe each step (e.g. make, put, dig, mix, push).

Connectives – use a variety of connectives to extend my sentences (e.g. therefore, because).

Openers – Be creative with how you open your sentences (e.g. Have you ever wondered how to …?)

Punctuation – use commas if I am listing items and always start sentences with capital letters.

We will be writing in class on Thursday, so any conversations we have at home tonight and tomorrow would be extremely valuable to share during our Big Talk and Big Write time. This can be done on the drive or walk home from school, or while we are eating dinner. No need for notes, just discussion!

Year 3 Students and Teachers!

Some reminders to start Term 4 (including Camp Info Night)

1

Posted by Jane Doye | Posted in Important Information for Parents | Posted on October 8, 2017

Hi everyone,

I can’t believe that tomorrow is the beginning of Term 4. How time flies!

A couple of reminders for the start of the term. Firstly, our Inquiry unit this term is Science. Students will be conducting experiments and they will need an old shirt to act as a lab coat. Our first experiment will be later this week, so if you could remember to bring these along on Day 1 or Day 2, that would be very helpful.

Also, we are holding a Camp Information Night this Tuesday at 6pm. It will be held in the Year 6 area and we encourage all parents to come along. This is a great opportunity to ask questions and gain important information for when your child is on camp. I hope to see you there.

Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

Mrs Doye 😄

Thursday – Biodiversity Expo, 3pm. Come and see our habitat dioramas and read our information reports on Endangered Australian Animals.

Friday – Whole school assembly, 9.10am in the gym.

Thanks and Regards

Diorama Construction – Thursday

0

Posted by Jane Doye | Posted in Biodiversity, Homework, Important Information for Parents | Posted on September 10, 2017

Hi 3C,

We will be making our habitat dioramas on Thursday this week. Your homework between now and then, will be to make sure you have brought a shoebox (or similar) in to school as well as any natural materials you may need to construct your diorama. This may include leaves, grass, sticks, dirt. We can get some sand from the sandpit and as always, we will provide coloured card, paint, tissue paper, cellophane, matchsticks, glue, etc.

Remember, your habitat diorama needs to match the endangered animal you are currently researching and writing an information report on. For example, if you are researching the Nangur Spiny Skink, you will know that they live in a forest habitat with rocks, trees and leaf litter. Your diorama will need to include these things.

Thanks everyone.

Mrs D.
