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:
experience suburb relatives household favourite exciting interested friendship memories remember personal living
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.
