Book Week 2020 ~ Curious Creatures, Wild Minds

Today the Year 3/4 students celebrated Book Week. We read the book ‘We’re Stuck’ by Sue De Gennaro. It was about how a bunch of animals from Building 24 got stuck in an elevator. At first they all thought how terrible the situation was and began to panic, but in the end, they all worked together to make the most of the situation and got to know each other much better. We made connections to how we were stuck at home for a very long time during lock down and some of us realised how great it was to spend more time with our families.

We also learned about some interesting curious creatures and wrote our favourite facts about our chosen animal.

Made with Padlet

We then got to work in small teams to create a large curious creature. We were each given a piece of the puzzle and had to work as a team to put the pieces back together. It was wonderful to see the students cheering each other on and helping each other out.
Here are our Curious Creatures.

Check Out Our Learning – Term 3, Week 8

During this term, we have been focusing on learning how to write using the cursive script. Each week we have seen great improvements.

Check out some of our work from this week. 

This week the students were learning about Heat in our Reading Groups. We used Jamboard to allow the students to share a fact that they learned from the session.

We also used Padlet this week to discuss how our choices can affect others. The students were asked to list a choice that they had made this week and whether that choice had a positive or a negative affect on someone else.
