Grade Three Update

Our Unit: Who We Are
After the break, once students have presented their projects to their peers, we will move onto our fifth unit: Sharing the Planet. This unit will focus on children around the world, and investigate the challenges, threats, and opportunities they face in day-to-day life. Students will examine case studies and reflect on global issues that face children.
Before starting division after the break, students have been looking at measurement, with a focus on length and volume. This has offered the opportunity for many fun practical activities and it has been interesting to learn about the ways in which metric units of measurement relate to one another.
In German, we have started our exciting "Innovationen"-project. The children are working in small groups of two or three to invent their own innovations that will improve our life. As we had been talking a lot about appreciation and living spaces it was time for the kids to take action and find ways of making our living space a better place. The kids are very enthusiastic about their project and very engaged in building their creative innovations. Thank you to all parents for providing the kids with all the great building materials!
Regarding language and grammar, we have introduced the perfect and future tense. The summative assessment of our unit will be a written description of the innovation using perfect and future tense.
The posters the kids have made about the different living spaces are now displayed outside of the classrooms so come and have a look at the great results!
Frohe Ostern und erholsame Feiertage wünscht das Deutsch-Team!
