Thank you Maria and Regina for offering to walk with us to the Alexandra Community Garden tomorrow afternoon. We will be leaving the school at 1:30 if there are any other people who wish to join us. Remember to have a jersey or jacket in case it is cooler and also your hi viz vest, which is part of our risk management for outings around Alexandra. No sandals, please wear runners.
On Wednesday we will be spending time in our school garden with Mrs Brydges and Mrs Adams.
This week we will be doing our first PAT test, which is Listening Comprehension. This is the only PAT test that year 3 children do.
Triathlon Training: We will be working on our endurance running over the next couple of weeks at fitness and as part of the PE programme. Please wear running shoes over this time. I would prefer that these are worn to school so that we are not trying to match up sandals at the end of the day. One item of footwear per person is enough for us to keep track of.
Religious Education: this week there is an activity for you to share about the Last Supper and the link to the Eucharist. Please help your child to complete the worksheet. Good News = Saturday Night there is a picnic tea, games and evening mass starting at 7pm in our church. A perfect opportunity for your family to share in our learning about the celebration of the Eucharist with the Parish family. This is a new word for us to understand. How is everyone going on learning the Children's Suscipe that was on the Catherine McAuley bookmark. This is one of the prayers that we need to know this year.
Spelling: we all conducted, tooled and checked out the hard parts of our lists on Friday. This is the first week of people working at their level (well almost as I still have levels 4 & 5 together while I check the skills of listening and tooling). Remember that we are practising the strategy of listening and recording not learning spelling words by heart, so remember to cover the word each night then listen, tool and record.
Reading: great to see so much reading happening - remember the more you read the better you write!
Hopefully there will be some photos of us starting our inquiry on the blog over the next couple of days.
Please remember to pop in and see us if you ever have any concerns - after school is the best time to make an appointment.
