The Grade 3’s got to spend the morning in the Senior Primary block, where they met the Grade 4 teachers at the doors with smiles on their faces. When the Grade 3’s entered the classrooms the Grade 4’s were waiting for them with I-pads at their desks. They had made a powerpoint slide show, to answer any questions and show them a little video of what happens in Senior Primary. After that they got taken around by the Grade 4’s on a tour around the phase. The Grade 3’s came back very enthusiastic about starting Grade 4 next year.
The Grade 3’s got the opportunity to share what they had learnt about space with the Grade 00, as their themes linked up. They taught them about the planets, how the planets move around the sun, the moon and astronauts. Then the Grade 00 taught the Grade 3’s a space song, which they really enjoyed.
The Grade 3’s were excited to have their visitors from Inkulu Primary spend a day with them. They all had a fun filled day in the classroom, on the playground and swimming in the pool. At the end of the day they were sent home with all the fruit from Fruity Tuesday and a gift bag from the Grade 2’s, wishing them a Merry Christmas.
The Grade 3’s sold ice creams at school to the Grade 1’s and 2’s with the money they had made from recycling paper in Term 2. The money they collected will be donated to the NSRI (National Sea Rescue Institution).
