The Year 3 Team
Thank you to those of you that are supporting our young readers at home. The connection between home and school for reading is so important.
Below are some handy tips for reading at home.
This week the children were going on a summer holiday. They were asked to pack their bag which contained 3 different colored shirts and 4 different colored shorts. Linking to our learner profile attribute of thinker they then had to find all the different combinations of dress.
After exploring for a while students came to an agreement that the best way to find all the combinations was to keep one thing the same (for example keep the same color shorts) until all the combinations could be found.
As an extension students were asked to make math equations to explain their findings.

In our latest inquiry into writing, writers will write about something they have experiences in and are passionate about (or are not passionate about). They will share their opinion- whether it is positive or negative and will use evidence (their own experience and the opinions of others) to support their opinion.
This unit allows writers to feel that their opinions are valued and have an audience. We will be looking at a variety of ways we can publish our reviews for a wider audience – more information to come soon! – we are very excited about finding authentic audiences!
We have been immersing ourselves as writers in reviews – of toys, of games, of books, of hotels. And we have been exploring the purpose of those reviews – how do they work? We have been able to make connections to our own experiences – how is it connected to other things? And we have noticed that sometimes our perspective can be different from others – what are the points of view?
Our eagle-eyed critics are sharpening their pencils ready to make their opinions heard!
