Year 3 Sport: Dodgeball Competition

The Year 3 team has been engaged in a strong but friendly dodgeball competition. Over five weeks, classes are pitted against each other in a round robin style event with a finals week to follow. Teams have been faring very evenly with the exception of Ms Murray’s 3B class who have so far remained unbeaten. Will this continue into the last week? Could 3B remain undefeated throughout the finals series? These questions remain unanswered but one thing is for sure, it will take an almighty effort to overcome them.

Teachers have also been on the lookout for students who are best displaying the school values to win our prestigious Year 3 Sportspeople Award. One of the most sought after awards at ACPS there are only two students from each class that will win it. Past winners have moved onto many great things, namely Year 4. These students will be forever immortalised on a laminated plaque so they can be treasured forever. Good luck to all participants out there!

Did you know that 795 million people will be hungery tonight?

  • Aronud the world too many families struggle to feed their children nutritious meals.
  • 2,000,000 people in Victoria are hungery
  • 2,000 ,000 breakfasts served to hungery kids
  • We’re now feeding healthy breakfasts to 1,000 students a day in 500 of the most disadvantaed primary schools across Victoria

Life on Land

Hi, my name is Kaan from 3B and I am letting you know about Life on Land.

10,000 species are going to be extinct every year. The worlds forests are getting way to polluted for animals to live.

More then 100 birds could die from all of the litter in the forests and other kinds of species could be be able to die as well.

When cans get thrown in to the forests  even little animals could die and sometimes some animals eat rubbish and die.

When people throw  too much rubbish at the same time and a lot of birds eat some more then 40 birds could die and some trees could die.

By Kaan.

Spanish in term 2

¡Hola!

This term in Spanish we focussed on learning about food and physical activity. First, we worked in groups on creating a short role-play about a particular meal: ‘desayuno’ (breakfast), ‘colación’ (snack), ‘almuerzo’ (lunch) or ‘cena’ (dinner). Each group chose food items eaten in each meal, and learned how to translate these items into Spanish online. We learned that while we can’t always trust Google Translate, it can be a very useful tool. After translating, we wrote scripts, using some English, our translated Spanish words, and two phrases we learned: ‘¡Tengo hambre!’ (I am hungry!) and ‘Voy a comer…’ (I am going to eat…).

When we had all presented our work, we moved on to learning some new vocabulary about sport. So many sports in Spanish look or sound just like they do in English! Rugby, Hockey, Fútbol, Boxeo, Atletismo… We enjoyed finding out some Spanish words about a sport of our choice.

Riley from 4D loves sport! See how proud he is of his work on ‘Baloncesto’.

Finally, we got curious!  There are so many people living in each of the many countries where Spanish is spoken… what sports did they like? Did they invent any sports? Do they go to the Olympics?

After sharing what we were all wondering, we set about to find some answers. Did you know that Panama, a Spanish speaking country in Central America, has the third best Baseball team in the world? Fascinating!

Keep practising Spanish at home during term 3. One way you can practise is by using this website https://rockalingua.com/ We use this website often at school.

¡Chao!

ALL ABOUT CLIMATE ACTION AND LIFE BELOW WATER.

Hi our names are Ali and Shrey.

We are working on C.B.L and our goals are Climate Action and Life Below Water.

Together we made this blog post to persuade people.

This is the information we listed.

  • Petrol burns in cars and the pollution destroys the ozone layer and that lets in the sun rays and the temprature gets hot and ocean animals go endangered.
  • Pollution leaves a gas called sulfur dioxide wich goes in the clouds and fills it with sulfuric acids an d when the water falls out it pollutes oceans and plants.
  • We should only use buses,trains and bikes so their is a lower amount of cars on the road.
  • Pollen and dust can pollute as well.
  • Pollution  can leave cancers and viruses.

What we can do to help…

  • walk to school.
  • ride a bike.
  • put your rubbish in the right bins

Thank you for reading this.

We are Emerson, Makayla, Isabella and Mariah. We are in 3B and our goal is Clean and Affordable Energy.

We made a poster to save electricity and money for bills.

 

 

Thank you!
