Library Reminder

This year the library times of the grade 3 classes has chopped and changed for a variety of reasons.
For the remainder of the year the times will be as follows:

3L – Tuesday session 1

3V – Tuesday session 2

3P – Tuesday session 3

3C – Wednesday session 5

3H – Wednesday session 6

We highly recommend that all students borrow on a weekly basis. It is a great opportunity for the students to choose books that interest them, hopefully making them life long readers.

Thanks from the Grade 3 team!

Clean Up Apollo Day!

On Wednesday the 12th of September the grade 3 students will be cleaning up the school grounds as part of Clean up Australia Day.

Throughout the term during our Inquiry unit, we have learnt how harmful our rubbish can be to the environment and our local wildlife, including marine animals.

Each grade will put on some gloves, grab some tongs and do their bit to make Apollo Parkways clean and rubbish free!

Henry the budgie

Thank you to all of the students who wrote a note. Henry will be having a holiday at Julius’ place. Thanks Julius!

All you need to do is give him fresh water every day and get your parents to help you change his seed every 3-4 days.

Edendale Farm

As part of the Grade 3 science unit ‘How does it grow?’ the Grade 3 student went to Edendale Farm on Monday 21st May, 2018.

Our focus during this unit is to investigate the common characteristics of living things, how living things are grouped together, their life cycles
and key stages. Activities at Edendale Farm included a creek walk, learning about indigenous plants, the life cycle of the Eltham Copper Butterfly, worms and bees.

Juice Bottles!

After our exciting trip to Edendale Farm (stay tuned for photos) we were lucky enough to have brought back some cuttings from plants. We were shown by staff at Edendale how to create terrarium using a juice bottle. If you have any empty juice bottles like the one pictured, could you please clean it and bring along to your classroom.

Well done grade 3s on finishing your first ever Naplan!!! Your teachers are so proud of all your efforts over the last 3 days.

A reminder: This test does not assess all of what makes each of you exceptional and unique.

The people who score these tests don’t know that some of you love to sing, are good at drawing or can teach others how to use a computer program. They have not seen the way that some of you dance with grace or speak confidently to a large group. They do not know that your friends count on you to be there for them when they are sad. They do not know that you participate in sports, help your Mum or Dad or that you play with your little brother, sister or cousins. They do not know that you are caring, thoughtful and that every day you do your best, because these qualities can not be tested.

The scores you get from this test will tell you how you did on that day, but they can not tell you everything. They can not tell you that you have improved on something that you once found difficult. They can’t tell you that you brighten up our day. They can’t tell you how amazingly special you are.
