What have we been doing in Week 5?

We have been working so hard in 3C lately! It is halfway through the term and we thought we would share what has been going on in our room this week. Here are some important points we remembered when we thought about our week:

Ms Anderson Welcome

We got a new visitor this week. Ms Huntly told us her name is Ms Anderson and that she is training to become a teacher. She is in her final year of university. –


We were reading our information books (non fiction books). We went looking for facts and opinions. A fact is a thing that can be found or proved. An opinion is something that a person says or believes. – GO

We have been practising our own reading goals on the CAFE wall. We read any types of books to practise our goal. We then reflect on how we are practising our goals. – GK


This week we were learning about information reports. Ms Huntly wrote one on netball. It is important to learn about information reports because it can help us write and read. – EM, AA

Our writing expectations for the term are to publish three pieces of writing. One information report, one narrative and one of our own choice. – RS

When we write we need to revise and edit. You have to reread your story to check for capital letters. We can change words for synonyms and add more details to our story. – SR


We have been learning about fractions, multiplication and problem solving. We have been practising and then using this in problem solving. We have learnt new things this week. – OA

I add improper fractions to get a mixed number. It can come in handy. It is fun to learn and it can’t be forgotten. – ER

Connecting online

Today we made at least one comment on a class blog from our school. It was super cool! – ZC

On Padlet we were writing to our penpals in Korumburra. You had to at least have one comment so our penpals had something to read. It was a lot of fun. You should try Padlet yourself! – JA

We listened to space scientists about space online with lots of other schools. There was lots of information about different things. We are curious about space. – HO, AK


Last week and this week we went to 3A and watched some magic tricks (aka science tricks). After that we practised some tricks and made procedures about them. Before the lesson, Mr Borrell did a trick with a card and most people knew how it was done. – HS

Specialist classes

In Week 5 we have been having fun in Specialist sessions. In Performing Arts we finished a whole dance. In PE we were practising our footy skills. In Spanish we were reading over our class agreement and filling in our puzzle sheet. In Art we are finishing our totem poles. – TS, FH


This week we had dodgeball finals. All the scores were very close. We were against Ms Ashby, Mr Borrell, Ms Kichakov, Ms Mayor and Ms Murray. All the classes did a great job in the last round. The final results were:

  1. Ms Murray 3B
  2. Ms Ashby 3E
  3. Ms Huntly 3C (us!)
  4. Ms Kichakov 3F
  5. Ms Mayor 3D
  6. Mr Borrell 3A

Our week has been so busy! We are looking forward to the next few weeks – BOOK WEEK, Literacy/Numeracy Week and eSmart Week!

Let us know what you have been learning this week.

One thought on “What have we been doing in Week 5?”

  1. To 3C,

    I think that you should not just comment on your friends or siblings blogs, but also comment on other blogs so your blog will get commented on by other people. I hope you are learning how to be safe on the Internet. Love the work!# Awesomework!

    From Emrys PS: keep up the good work!
