Class 3's blog
First of all, I would like to thank everyone who took part in this year's sponsored read. The children who took part really threw themselves into the task of raising money as well as pushing themselves to do something additional to their weekly reading. For those who are unaware, Read for Good raises money for children who are in hospital as they are unable to have second-hand books due to the bacteria risks they pose. The charity also raises money so that story-tellers can go into hospital to entertain the children.
With all that said, we have managed to raise...
Several children from Class 3 attended a golf tournament this work. Their team-work and general sportsmanship was exemplary. In several of the activities, they scored in the top three! We were so proud of how they conducted themselves. You may have a few children asking for golf lessons in the future...
The latest edition of DITTO (an online safety magazine) is now available here. This is a special issue that focuses solely on YouTube. We feel this would be of use to our children as we are aware that many of them not only view videos on the website, but also have aspirations of building a career on it.
First of all I would like to thank everyone who has already given in their sponsor cards. We are raising a lot of money for a great cause! I would like to remind everyone that sponsor cards and donations need to be in by Friday 9th June. Cards that are not given in by that date will not be included in our in-school competition. You are free to donate by cash or cheque through the school but please put these donations into an enevelope with your child's name on the front.
We have extended the deadline for when the Sponsor Cards should be in. If they could be back by the Monday 4th June, we can get an idea of how much money has been raised. All money raised should be given in by 11th June. Thank you again for your continued support!
As detailed in this blog, we have been encouraging the children to extend their reading choices. These week's Reading Explorers are:
Class 2: Freddy - For challenging himself by reading The Hobbit at home with an adult.
Class 3: Christi and Zac - For choosing new text types.
Dan - For developing a true reading for pleasure.
Sky - For pushing herself with different text types.
This week in Class 3 we have been learning about capacity. The children had some hands on experience in the sunshine as they examined different containers. They applied this learning in a range of ways through the week from converting between different capacities to solving real life problems.
