Living the Experience!

Living the Experience!

The Grade Three’s have been living the life of actors, actresses and dancers in their Theatre Production: The Tales of Time! It was a thrill and an experience of a lifetime for them to come to school in the early evening to climb into their magical costumes and coat their faces with exquisite make-up to enhance their character traits.

Responsibili-THREE

Response-ability, the word says it all. The ability to choose our response.  Responsibility is one of the many life skills we teach in our classroom.

Our Grade Threes have been working with much determination and GRIT this term to understand some new and challenging concepts in Mathematics. In the olden days we learnt our times tables and many other Mathematics concepts by repeating them countless times, often just miming and not really paying attention to what was happening in class.

Grade 3s sussing out “Seisoene”

Grade 3s sussing out “Seisoene”

Sometimes teaching in the same class, lesson after lesson, can become a bit repetitive. So what better way to start our new term, than with a specialised teaching lesson! The excitement that followed after telling the Grade 3s that they would be moving to the other classes to learn was something to behold! It was the perfect response to foster engagement with[Read More…]
