Welcome to 3/4Es Class Blog for 2016! We can’t believe it is Term 3 already. This year has been a wonderful learning adventure so far and we are looking forward to sharing our learning with you for the remainder of the year!
What has been something you have enjoyed learning so far this year?
This week is book week at KPS. On Tuesday we had the Book week parade dress up day and I went as a S.H.I.E.L.D agent whose name was Agent Colson from the Avengers.
On Wednesday we had Andy Griffith’s come to the school …. I wish …. Really we had Nova Weetman – I enjoyed it because we made our own horror and death story about a boy who was Poor and lived in a zoo with meerkats and Annabel the doll.

On the 29th of July 3/4 f, 3/4 c and 3/4 a went into Miss Fraser’s room. We were here to learn about mystery Skype and how to run one. We got taught what jobs are used to set up a mystery Skype. Here a some of the jobs.
- Google Mapper
We also got taught that there is more than one speaker, and they take turns asking questions.
We haven’t started mystery Skype but we will soon!
I can’t wait.

Empty cans, plastic bottles, clear plastic and foam cups, plastic straws, icy-pole sticks, toothpicks, cling wrap cylinders, small and large paper plates, zip-locked bags, googly eyes, pom poms, balloons, fishing line and rubber bands.
Thank you all for your help.

In maths we are learning about multiplication. For example 4×5 is 20 3×0 is 0 it is simple. Mrs Barclay has told us a lot about it. It is my favourite maths subject. I think at first it is hard but when you get the hang of it, it is easy.
In inquiry we are learning about geography. Geography is like looking around the world and seeing different things. Yesterday we went on google earth. It was good fun.

On Wednesday 2nd of September, the year ¾ students have the opportunity to attend camp. I am very excited to go, because we get to go on the billy carts, giant swing, flying fox, archery and loads more. Camp is a 3 day; 2 night camp. We get to sleep in lodges. I loved last year’s, so I am so excited about this years. We get to do Red Faces, which is where you do a performance in front of judges, (which are parents) and a few kids as well. I’m excited about camp, what about you too?
