We have been working on writing interesting narratives. Use this checklist for your next story.
This term the grade three students in our grade were able to attend a three day camp at Camp Coolamatong near Paynesville.
They had a wonderful time completing a number of exciting activities, including archery, milking a cow, feeding the animals, a tribal challenge that involved hutbuilding and bush cooking. The camp included a great boat ride to Raymond Island where they were able to spot many koalas in their natural habitat.
Here are some photos of their great tme.
At LRPS we are a Sunsmart school.
This means we need to wear a wide brimmed school hat in Term 1 and Term 4. We also make sure that we follow the sunsmart rules.
In 2/3L we are SUNSMART at home and school
SLIP on a Tshirt
SLOP on sunscreen
SLAP on a hat
SLIDE on sunglasses
In technology we had great fun designing and producing a sunsmart hat. We had to think carefully about our design as we were only allowed two pieces of paper and had to make sure it had a brim and covered our head and neck. This was a great challenge!
Here are some of our very creative sunsmart hats.
2/3L, Mrs L is very proud of your efforts. You were active learners who persisted at the task.
For your homework this week we will be focusing on capacity. To follow up our lessons from class you are to find 5 items from home thar are measured in either millilitres (mL) or litres (L). If you need to refresh your understanding of capacity watch the YouTube clip.
Make sure that you ask permission before you go looking through your cupboards at home.
These are some items I found in my home:-
Maple syrup. 250mL
rice bran oil. 1L
water. 600 mL
Sweet chilli sauce. 500 mL
Hand cream 30mL
Congratulations on another fabulous inquiry expo!
Over the term you focused on how we can conserve water at home and school. I was very impressed with your models, persuasive posters and procedural writing.
Great work 3L
For your homework this week you are to use the success criteria to evaluate your performance at the expo. Write down at least three things that were successful and a goal for your next expo.
Which activity will go?
Will it be the giant swing, low ropes, archery, hut building, bush cooking, canoeing or the flying fox?
3L next time our school goes to Forest Lodge camp we may have to choose only six activities. For your homework this week you are to select your favourite activity and explain why we should keep is activity.
Remember to use the persuasive strategies that we have been focusing on. To be successful (success criteria) you will include a hook in (introduction), persuasive strategies and a conclusion.
You will need to persuade me! (your audience)
