PK3.3 - Peek at the week

10th - 14th October

Thank you!

A big thank you for making time to come to Parent Conferences this week. It was wonderful to see you all again and discuss how much your children have been learning and growing in PK3. Please remember if you have any questions or concerns I am just an email away.

Hello PK3.3 parents!

Time is rolling by so quickly here in PK3! We are almost at the end of our Ball Study Unit but the fun of learning still continues. Our morning conversations are becoming more complex as the children recall and apply their knowledge to our daily questions, such as “Can you make your body into a ball?” Our experiments are also becoming more interesting!


This week we learnt about force and velocity as we experimented with a wrecking ball. It was great to hear the children talking about how they could pull the ball back higher to make it go faster and hit harder.


We also went on a Sphere Hunt around school, taking our camera and clipboards to record what ball shaped items we spotted. Take a look below to see what we found! Encourage your children to look around your home and social area and see how many different sphere shaped items they can find. Ask them draw a picture of their findings and bring it to share with the class next week.


Have a great weekend,

PK Team
