...and we are off...Term 3 has begun!

We have had a very busy start to the term. We have a group of students visiting us for just over two weeks from South Korea. These students are buddied up with our year 8 students going to the Gold Coast.

The first week of our projects have seen teams planning how they will achieve their goals by the end of week 4. In the coming week, families will be emailed initial project maps.  Our projects will take about 4 weeks to complete.  We will invite families in week 5 to see these, further information will be available closer to the date.

Location Location LocationBy Jake 

We decided to create a location board for LC3 to show where all the students are, so the teachers know where we are and can get us if they need. It also keeps us safe.

Why is a Location Board important? It’s important that everyone in the common can be found if they are needed or if there is some kind of emergency.

A location board is a way for the LAs to tell where all the students are. It’s a big wooden board with all the spaces in the school along with every students name on a moveable card with velcro on the back so that it can be stuck next to pictures of the different spaces.

How did we make the Location Board? I was away for a big part of the building process, but what I do know is my group stuck velcro to the back of the pictures and the names and then we stuck velcro onto the wooden board permanently.

Who made the Location Board? Ben, Jake, Harrison, Bailey, Josiah and Callan.

Where will you find the Location Board? You will find the Location board in Hobsonville Point Primary School LC3 NZ.

Discovery writing By Maia

Discovery writing is a place kids can share and write stories. Discovery writing is on everyday. Monday we get a topic and we have to plan for Friday. On Friday we do our iWrite and we get 20 - 30 minutes to write on our topic.

Discovery writers do fun games and activities like punctuation and grammar and write stories like we're doing right now the report. We do other stories like online stories we do is work on our spelling. We learn how to write stories properly and then we learn how to write TV commercials. We learn how to write scripts and learn how to write reports. We learn how to write everything pretty much. Discovery writing is run by Amy all over LC3 sometimes, we even write on the playground only if we're lucky.
