Over the last couple of weeks we have continued our learning of shapes by investigating area and perimeter. We thought about area through the concept of space and have had a lot of fun investigating various things!
Over the last 6 weeks, Grade 3 have been looking at 'The tools we use affect how we express our ideas'. The children have worked very hard at looking at different tools through the concepts; perspective, change and reflection. They have already posted some of the music they created to represent the idea of water in a previous blog post.
Most recently, they have spent time selecting a tool, using the key concepts to form the research questions for their tool, carrying out the research, presenting this in the form of an information report and presenting their work to Grade 3.2. Have they been busy or have they been busy?!
This project has probably been the longest one they've worked on so far this year and they showed nothing but stamina, dedication and enthusiasm for their research, with some children even continuing their work at home! They have learnt from each other, picked up new, technical vocabulary and shown how knowledgable they have become by presenting what they have learnt.
Last Friday was the date we had all been looking forward to. The Winter concert!
The children had been practising non-stop in the lead up to the concert, especially in the last couple of days and all their hard work really paid off! They performed beautifully, showed off their talents confidently and cooperated with each other effortlessly. We are all so proud of them!
