We are happy to report that our first few weeks back in the classroom have been amazing. The children are wearing their masks and keeping their distance. We are so happy to be back in the classroom!
Our first days in school we worked on measurement and metres. This gave us the opportunity to go outside and measure with metres and specifically getting comfortable with 2 metres for social distancing. We started off the year learning all about soil. Did you know there are different types of soil and lots of animals that live in the soil? Our great big schoolyard has been the perfect spot to dig and examine the soil. Yes, we even found some worms and snails.
Next week we will be observing real live worms in the classroom and starting our own worm compost in each class. I am so happy that I have so many worm handlers in the class. It has been a long time since I held a real live worm. The students promised to help handle the worms. Now I just have to get brave enough to do it. Stay tuned!
Keeping in mind the current times in which we live, in Social Studies Grade 3 delved into the impact humans have on the earth. Looking at the cause and effect of Fossil fuels, deforestation, and air pollution. Here are a few examples of the work produced…
Keep checking in on our blog as the Grade 3 students use the information they have researched and become News reporters! WATCH THIS SPACE!
Each week in Grade 3 we get together and share something we are proud of. This is been a constant in our physical classroom since September (TBH – Our class were/are always creating awesome things to be proud of so it became a daily/hourly thing!!!)
Today – I scheduled in time to share again…and boy was I proud! This will most certainly be something we will continue in our online class until the school year finishes. Not only does it bring us closer in a time when we have to be apart but I get to showcase all of the amazing things we are doing!
So today, we had an impressive rendition of the Harry Potter theme tune! Awesome work, Noa-Tili!
Katara and Meadow shared some super cool shortcuts and tools in Chrome Music Lab and Songmaker. A site they use in Music lessons.

WOW! What a wonderful morning of exhibiting young innovators’ work. It was great to see so many of you here today, Thank you. I know, how much it means to the Grade 3! If you were unable to make it, here is a Google slide showing the experiments and a Google Doc showing the overview of the task and curriculum links.
Good Morning Grade 3,
All students will receive a multiplication strategy booklet this week to practise Arrays, Colour-block square tables, skip counting and number lines. These are all useful strategies when practising multiplication. As we are starting out multiplication and Division unit in Math (which will last until the end of March) this booklet will help when you get stuck.
You can also use an interactive tool such as YouTube and listen to multiplication raps and I will set multiplication tasks on Knowledgehook.
Good morning Grade 3 and Grade 3 parents,
Today a letter and permission form will be coming home regarding the soft launch of grade 3 student blogfolios!
The ultimate goal is to help students learn communication, reflection, and digital citizenship skills, including online safety, that will help them throughout their lives. Here are some examples of the different types of blogfolios from one of the older grades in our school.
Public Blogfolio – This student has been blogging since Kindergarten. It’s wonderful to see how her learning has grown and developed over time.
Public Avatar Blogfolio – This student has just begun her blogging journey and has chosen to keep her name and identity private. We are still able to see her growth and interact with her on her journey. Notice how students have learned to respect her privacy by using the alias in the comments as well.
Password Protected Blogfolio – This student has shared her name and is open to leaving some posts public, however when she shares pictures or videos, she has password protected the post. Only those who have been approved by her or her parents are allowed to know the password.
Private Blogfolio – This blog is completely private. Unless you have an Edublogs account and have been granted access to this blog, you will not be able to see the content.
If you could sign and return the permission form by Monday, March 9th, 2020, I will add an electronic copy here.
We are so excited to finally begin to build a spot for all of our awesome work! If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to email.
The Grade 3 team.
Good Morning Grade 3 and Grade 3 Parents,
