In 3C in Spanish we learnt that the top 3 languages spoken in the whole world are Mandarin, Spanish and English. It is exciting to be learning one of the top 3 languages and knowing one of the top 3 languages.
Being curious is being eager to know or learn something. We can be curious by asking questions or coming up with ideas about things.
We have created a Curiosity journal this term and we are recording any wonderings we have and investigating answers for the questions we want answers to. We also have a class Wonder Wall where we can add questions for the whole class. We will spend time investigating these and finding answers just like we do with our personal questions.
Here are only a few of our class wonderings we are curious about:

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!
This afternoon we spent time reading blogs from different classes across the school. We wrote comments to different classes and look forward to those classes reading them and maybe commenting back!
It is really important when we comment that we follow these ideas:
Feel free to comment on our blog!
This term we researched and took notes on the particular United Nations (U.N.) goal we were interested in. Once we had enough information we started putting our information presentations together. Some people used Keynote, Book Creator, iMovie/green screen, PicKids and others used paper to make posters. With the information on the goal we presented, we also had to include HOW we could help the U.N. achieve this goal.
Our class came up with a list of ways we can help the U.N. Here is what we can do to help achieve the 17 Sustainable Goals:
UN Goal 1 – No Poverty
UN Goal 3 – Good Health and Wellbeing
UN Goal 4 – Quality Education
UN Goal 6 – Clean water and sanitation
UN Goal 8 – Economic Growth
UN Goal 12 – Responsible Consumption and Production
UN Goal 14 – Life Below Water
UN Goal 15 – Life on Land
Today we completed our presentations and shared them with the class. They will be uploaded for everyone to look at soon!
Hi my name is Aaliyah and I made a survey about how long people work for and how much money you earn. I would really like you to fill in this survey so I know things about work for you and if you are happy with it. In the survey it will have some questions and can you please leave me an answer.

Thank you for listening.
As a mid year reminder here is the app list for families:
This term we have been focusing on drama and drama skills. These have included voice projection, creating a character, blocking (where we stand, enter and exit a stage) and production tasks such as sound engineer, backdrops, props and costumes. We have been working in small groups to create a play and add our own touches to it, before we film and share these with our Buddy Classes.
To prepare for our plays we have also been working on our teamwork and drama skills through warms ups such as “I am a…”, Mime relay and Time Machine were we work as a group to create a scene.
We also had a greta time with the non campers playing drama games such as First Line and Mime Relay, the students showed great imagination in presenting short improvised plays.
With the term fast ending, don’t forget to practise your lines which you can find on Showbie.
