Smooth Moves in 3/4

This week in 3/4 straight from the kids mouths:

We are learning about Australian Geography in Integrated Studies. This week we have designed a school flag and we will soon have a school song. For our project, we have researched about a state. Everyone has a different state to research about such as ACT, NSW, VIC, QLD, SA, WA, TAS and NT. We are working in groups of 3 or 4 for this project.

Selamat pagi semua orang! Good morning everyone! In Indonesian we are learning about clothes words. A couple of them are topi (hat), rok (skirt) and there are lots more. That’s what we’ve been doing.

For the last couple of days in Maths, we’ve been doing subtraction with trading. We know our 100s, 10s and some of us know how to subtract 1000s!

Our sound in Spelling this week is the ‘or’ sound. There are lots of spellings of this sound such as oor, oar, ore, aw, ough, aw augh and lots more!

Our class as been doing a lot of stuff but I will tell you about Writer’s Notebook. It is something that you can write anything about. You can write poems, stories, posters and a lot of other genres. It is a good thing to do in school. It helps you write a lot better and it is really awesome!

This week in Art we have been making a small clay pot for a wire bonsi tree. We had to smooth it with water so it doesn’t have cracks. Then we went outside, took a piece of paper and a pencil and tried to draw a bonsi tree.

In science we’ve been showing ways to move things.

We need to pull harder!!

We’ve been doing tug of war and learning about friction and drawing diagrams about what we’ve been doing.

Let's try tug of war with everyone wearing socks and no shoes. Maybe that will make it fairer.

How much friction will styrofoam create when we slide this book over it?

3/4D Integrated Studies

Term 3 sees the Grade 3 and 4s looking at Australia and what makes our nation great.

We have focused on how Australia was discovered, our original settlers and convicts and the discovery of gold. We are now looking at our National and State symbols and creating Travel brochures to every Australian state and state information posters

We had great time in creating our convict wanted posters
