Our spelling focus for this week is the short 'u' sound that can be found in words that have 'oo', 'ou' or 'u' spelling. Homework will be the words put into Grade 3 sentences, meaning sentences that are properly punctuated and the words are being used in their correct context.

Hello and welcome back. After a restful two weeks (with a touch of warmer than normal weather thrown in) we are back into it in 3C.
Term 2 will be a tad busy for us, as we have a lot of ground to cover with our learning.
Please find our weekly timetable below (which may be updated as the term progresses), as well as
an overview of what we'll be learning about during English, Maths and Integrated.
Let's celebrate the end of a fantastic term by reading some of our published narratives.
Can you handle the spookiness?
Already, we are at week 8. It's gone mighty quick!
Last week we finally finished our autobiographies. Our paragraphs elaborated on our families, friends, interests and hobbies to name a few.
We are now moving onto horror narrative writing. We've been brainstorming ideas for characters, settings and events and have just about finished planning our own narratives.
Our spelling words for the last two weeks have been words to use in our narratives. Last week were emotions and feelings characters may have, this week's words are adjectives to describe characters or settings. We are excited to be writing a bloodcurdling tale for you! We'll post some here when they're done.
Last week we also created come find-a-words, all about nouns. We included common, proper, abstract, concrete, collective, singular and plural nouns.
We also really got into playing a time match-up game, matching analogue clock times to digital times.
Lastly, this Thursday the 22nd is PJ Day. Students are encouraged to come to school in PJs, bringing along a gold coin donation to be made to the Good Friday Appeal.
This week we are into writing our autobiographies. A little rich for a grade three student to be writing about our lives you may think, but if some 'celebrities' can write multiple autobiographies, we can write at least this one.
We're still exploring 4 digit numbers and place value in maths. Feel free to quiz us on four digit numbers, asking us how many of the tens/ hundreds/ thousands. We're also about to begin exploring time too.
Our spelling words for this week:

Remember: One activity for spelling homework (due on Mondays) and reading every night.

Yesterday, our class was lucky enough to participate in a restorative behaviours workshop with Terry O’Connell from Real Justice. This was a great session and built upon some of the work that has already been happening at Coburg North.
The Restorative Practices model recognises that consistency in response to behaviour helps to create a safe and comfortable learning environment. It also helps to further develop interpersonal and communication skills while giving students a frame work in which they can resolve their problems.
Each student has been given a set of cards containing questions to use to assist them resolve issues they may experience. Teachers will be using these questions as well. Please find these attached.
Week 3 already!
Lessons have properly started now and we are getting stuck into Maths, Reading, Writing and the rest of it.
We are looking at odd and even numbers in Maths, as well as map reading and coordinates/ grid references. We're planning recounts of our camp experiences and identifying common and proper nouns in texts.
We were a bit bushed after camp last week. It's safe to say we all had a great time. Some of us missed home, some of us ate too much, some of us didn't get enough sleep and most of us challenged ourselves to try and achieve something new.
School camp is this Wednesday 7th to Friday 9th of Feb.
*Please ensure students are at school by 8:30am, as we need to hit the road as close to 9am as possible.
*Ensure all items are labelled
*Bring snack and lunch for the first day
*If your child needs medication while on camp, please make sure you bring in a description of what to administer and when, signing in the medication to Simon.
