For our new unit, we have been considering how artists use line, colour and form in their creative process. Using a strategy called, “Roll-a-Masterpiece”, students have been creating their own Van Gogh’s and Keith Haring pictures.

In English, we became word detectives again and went on a hunt for vocabulary authors have used instead of the simple verbs “to say” (“said”) and “to go” (“went”).
Later in the week, during a word inquiry of words in our March (Chicken Soup With Rice by Maurice Sendak) rhyme that have suffixes, 3D discovered a new suffix “-en”. They were excited to be able to prove it by finding it in other words. At first they wondered if “-on” was also a suffix, but with further investigation they came to the conclusion that “upon” is in fact a compound word.
In maths this week students were working in small groups to analyse and interpret maths statements and numerical arrangements, attempting to make matches between an equation, a value, array, group, set and word problem. There were lots of great conversations and some tough thinking involved. We will be revisiting this as there’s more to do!
Thursday’s G2-3 Music Concert was truly special. The students performed outstandingly and their teachers are incredibly proud of them!
Before heading to the performance, 3D tried a fun brain-gym and listening activity. Take a look:
