Why do we celebrate Christmas?

3B had some wonderful explanations about why we celebrate Christmas. It was lovely to see on every page the recognition that Christmas is about the birth of Christ!

Here we are sharing our ideas and engaging in a peer editing session.

What a wonderful evening

Congratulations to all of 3B, your behaviour tonight was exemplary and I was honoured to be able to present each of you with an award.

To those who received an award for excellence in a subject I would like to offer a further congratulation. Everyone worked very hard this year and there were some very hard choices for me to make but the recipients were all very deserving of your awards and you should be proud of your efforts throughout 2012.

I look forward to enjoying our last 3 days of 2012 together before you head off on a well deserved break :)

Guess who came to Church Time??

Wow! After an inspiring message about the true meaning of Christmas we were then treated to a visit from Santa!

Speech writing

Throughout this term 3B have been learning about what makes a good speech. This week we are finalising the speeches we began writing last week, writing them onto cue cards and practicing our presentation.

To help us practice our timing and expression we have had group timing practices where we all read our speeches, peer group critiques where we presented our speeches to a small group and received positive and constructive feedback, and we recorded ourselves on the iPads and listened back to check our vocal and facial expressions.

I'm excited to hear everybody's speeches beginning MONDAY.

Read to Someone

This term 3B have been writing narratives. We worked really hard to publish and illustrate our favourite narrative we had written this term.

Today we got them back and had the chance to do Read to Someone with our own books!
