Anzac Day occurs on 25th April every year. On this day we remember and honour all Australians who have served in wars and conflicts around the world. We are going to find out more about ANZAC Day by reading the text below.
It’s been another big week of learning. Not only have we been working at home on reading, writing and maths, we’ve also learned how to use Webex! Everyone deserves a nice relaxing weekend. Make sure you get outside, go on a bike ride, or just enjoy the sunshine!
Tomorrow is ANZAC Day. It is a national day where we remember and honour all Australians who have served in wars. You might like to watch the the video to learn more about ANZAC Day.
On special things people like to do on ANZAC Day is make ANZAC biscuits. On the weekend, you and your family might like to make some ANZAC biscuits. I’ve attached a recipe below.
As time passes, lots of things change! New inventions are created, new ideas are thought of, and new ways of doing things are tried. But the future only changes and improves when people are willing to take a chance and try something different!
We know that 3/4 students have lots of their own writing ideas, so we want to make sure you have some personal writing time each week to develop your own writing pieces. Some things to remember for personal writing…
Think of a seed…grow it into an idea!
One seed can sprout lots of different ideas for topics and types of writing.
Think about different text types or genres – stories, poems, information reports, letters, instructions, persuasive texts, biographies.
Once you have chosen an idea to develop into a piece of writing…
Plan your writing – draw, list ideas, use a table, story mountain, word lists, etc
Draft your writing – write it in your book
Revise and edit your writing – check if there is anything you can do to improve your writing.
Publish your writing – if you are happy with your writing, you can publish it to share with the class!
This week my seed is just a couple of words and an idea about … ‘future me’
I might write a fictional biography about myself in the future, or maybe a narrative about going on an adventure in a time machine to the future…what will you write today?
Just like at regular school we will be having Friday fun! Friday fun is a session for you to explore your interests, be creative, discover and try new things… generally just have a great time. This time is NOT to be using devices or looking at a screen! It is a time to find something exciting to do that will keep you thinking, entertained and get the blood flowing. Think outside the square!! You can choose an activity or follow the suggestion that we have included below.
Remember that your parents/carers have been doing a great job supporting you this week and this is a time for them to prioritise themselves. Give them a break!
Today’s Friday Fun mission, (should you choose to accept it), will consist of going on a scavenger hunt in the backyard. Below is a list of things you need to find.
A bug that is red
3 types of leaves
Something that smells good
2 different sized sticks
Take a photo or draw what you find and email your photo to me. Good luck!
