Wednesday 14th June

Congratulations!

Dear 3B kids,

Wow! You did it! You finished the school year – and completed your journey in Grade 3. I would like to say “thank you” to all the kids in 3B. You have all learned so much and achieved so much. You should feel very proud. It has been wonderful being your teacher.

I would like to wish a great big goodbye to Angus, Caleb and Chiyo! They have been amazing friends and we will miss them. We know that they will go on to have terrific new adventures too.

I can’t wait to see everyone else back at the start of Grade Four. I am so happy that I will get to work you with all again in my new job as school counselor.

During the summer don’t forget to read as much as you can!

Sincerely,
Mr. Dylan

Bye to Angus, Caleb and Chiyo – you guys ROCK!

Mathematics – find the difference (subtraction)

Ethan, Caleb, Audrey, and Rina love collecting Pokemon cards.

They have a playdate every month to compare and share their collections with each other.

1. During the previous month, Ethan was able to collect 45 cards while Caleb was only able to collect 27. How many more cards does Ethan have more than Caleb?

2. Audrey, on the other hand, was able to collect 74 cards which are 36 more than what Rina was able to collect. How many Pokemon cards was Rina able to collect?

3. If Andrew has a total of 89 cards and Chun Yu has 57, how many more cards does Andrew have than Chun Yu?

4. The following month, the four friends met again to share their collections. Ethan, having the most number of cards among all of them decided to give away some of his collection. If he has 96 cards that month, and he gave away 48, how many cards was he left with?

5. Before her friends gave her more cards, Rina initially had 34 cards. If she now has 61 Pokemon cards, how many cards did she receive from her friends?

Field Trip Day!

Today we will be venturing out into the Hanoi community to explore our Central Idea:

Appreciating what people believe can enable us to become global citizens.

In particular we will be really searching for information related to this question:

What are the similarities and differences between belief systems?

Please Remember:

  • A water bottle
  • A healthy snack
  • A hat
  • To take notes in your notebook
  • To be curious, respectful and open minded!
  • We will have extra water on the bus for you to refill your bottles
  • We will take a selection of fruit with us in case you need an extra snack

Would you like to see the menu for our special shared lunch? Here it is:
