Grade 3 - April 27 /2018


Filming is complete in French! Please click the link here to see the videos. The students did a fantastic job, and deserve to be very proud of their performances. Bravo!

Thank you to all of the parents who joined us to celebrate their child's learning at Student-led conferences on Thursday. We are so proud of the Grade 3s for their hard work and growth so far this year. Please see here for photos from conferences.

In Math this week, we focused on the concept of probability. Probably is the chance of an event occurring. We use the vocabulary likely, unlikely, equally likely, impossible, certain and possible to explain the probability of an event occurring.

In writing and inquiry, we focused on planning our persuasive writing paragraphs and using a checklist to review and edit.

On Thursday, we had a special presentation by Zein from WE. She spoke to the children about the importance of respecting and protecting the rights of children around the world and how we can all take action. The Grade 3s loved Zein’s enthusiasm and knowledge about how WE protects children’s rights to water, food, education, opportunity and healthcare.

Students had a blast at the Gregg LeRock concert on Wednesday! If your child is interested in purchasing a CD of Gregg’s music, please click here for form and return by Friday, May 4.
