This week, the grade 3s explored the concept of fractions of a whole. We named fractions (halves, thirds, fourths, fifths, etc.) and identified ways to show half, quarters and thirds.
In Inquiry, we explored what rights we have at school and how it is our responsibility to protect them. For example, I have the right to play at recess and the responsibility to include others.
We also read several different persuasive writing texts and developed our own graphic organizer to write a persuasive paragraph. Students loved getting the choice to argue for something they’re passionate about: no uniforms at school, no bedtime, education for all children, and beyond.
Last week, we watched a video about human rights. This video was rich with topics to be discussed over dinner. Feel free to watch again with your child and discuss.
In PHE this week, the grade 3’s continued working on their hockey skills by playing Ground Attack, Endline Hockey and Sideline hockey.
In Music, students added low D to their range of notes on the recorder, continued composing in Groovy” and recorded an audition for a future assembly performance.
