Pancake Day

Last Tuesday it was Shrove Tuesday and we made pancakes with the other grade 3/4 class. 

To make the pancakes we needed:

  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1/2 a cup of milk
  • 1/2 a cup of self raising flour

We mixed the egg, sugar, milk and self raising flour together and then put it in the pan.

The pancakes were delicious and we all had a good time except for Mary because her pancake was NOT cooked!

Inference with Mrs Shepherd

On Monday morning Mrs Shepherd came into our class to teach us about inference.

We learned that inference is something that the author wants you to know but wants you to figure it out yourself.

Mrs Shepherd read us a story called “city dog country frog” (we have not used capital letters because the author didn’t in the title). 

Mrs Shepherd gave us a sheet of paper.  We had to write  “I think that the author wants me to understand that …” and “My evidence is …”.

Sam said “I think that the author wants me to understand that country frog has died and friends don’t last forever”.  “My evidence is frogs dont like Winter but they do like Spring so the frog should be back by Spring”.

Bethany said   “I think that the author wants me to understand that country frog and city dog are friends”.  “My evidence is people and animals can be friends no matter how different they are”.

 Jesse said “I think the author wants me to understand  that the frog past away because it was too cold”.  “My evidence is it was Winter and it was too cold and the river was frozen”.

Thank you Mrs Shepherd for coming into our class and teaching us about inference.

What makes a good teacher?

At the start of the year our class has made a list of  “What makes a good Teacher?”.

Some of the words we think makes a good teacher are:

  • fun
  • nice
  • helpful
  • caring
  • listens
  • organised
  • gives us just the right work
  • keeps us safe
  • happy.
After we did the list we have made a poster of Mrs Hazzledine with the words on her.  Ha Ha naughty us!

Track Tryouts!

Every Friday the Grade 3-6’s have sport.  The training coach, Mr O’Shannasy, trained the 12 year old first.  The next week he trained the 11 year olds, then the 10 year olds.  Next week he will train the 9 year olds.  Once Mr O has looked at all age groups he will pick the team.  When Mr O picks the team he’ll choose if your doing 800m running, 200m running, 70m running, 100 m running or the 80m hurdles.

If you are picked for Mr O’s team you will have to do lots of training.

What makes a good student?

Mrs Hazzledine asked us to brainstorm “What makes a good student?”.  Some of the words we came up with were:

  • Always gives 100%
  • Gets along
  • listens
  • puts up their hand
  • reads and works quietly
  • inclusive
  • organised.
Mrs Hazzledine took a photo of us all and using Wordfoto on her Ipad has created this fantastic poster!

Warm Fuzzies

This week we have been doing warm fuzzies with 3/4H next door.  Warm fuzzies are nice things to say to people.

We made envelopes, wrote our names on them and decorated them all fancy with pencils and textas.  We have started writing warm fuzzies on pieces of paper.  We need to give them to Mrs Hazzledine or Mrs Andrews to check and put in the persons envelope.  We are trying to write a warm fuzzy for everyone in both grade 3/4 classes, and the teachers too!

Everybody loves warm fuzzies.
