Information Report – Lions

We are going to use the images below to unpack a writing seed on lions in preparation for an information report.

When you unpack a seed you will need to think about the classification, appearance, habitat and behaviour.

After your seed you will need to write a draft that has an introduction/classification (explains what your topic is), body/description (appearance, behaviour and habitat) and conclusion (a personal comment or important piece of information that has not yet been written).

Classification – What is a lion?

Appearance

Behaviour

Habitat

Conclusion

Remember to:

Write in sentences (use capital letters and full stops correctly).
Write in paragraphs.
Think about your spelling and use spelling strategies to help you spell difficult words.
Try and use some adjectives and technical words to make your writing more interesting.

Dear 3 / 4 K,

I will be taking a photo for the Newsletter on Friday of all the children who have been at school All Day / Every Day for this week. If you are late to school on any day then you wont be able to go into the photo.

The Father’s Day Stall will be held on Thursday.  You will be able to buy something for a special adult male in your life from this stall.

You will be having P.E.on Friday this week as Mr. Barbour will be taking Mrs. Lewellin’s grade on Wednesday.  It will be the first session on Friday.

Have a great day,

Dear 3 / 4 K,

Tomorrow is Daffodil Day.  It is a fundraiser for Cancer Research and Support and you can help by bringing along a gold coin donation and wearing yellow.  You can also buy some merchandise from Mrs. Bradbury’s room.

Don’t forget to get your concert costume organised.  We would like the costumes at school by next Tuesday so that we can take a grade photo which will go into the concert programme.

Book Club forms and money are due this Friday if you would like to buy something.  Also please return your signed form for the Premier’s Reading Challenge.  The closing date for this is coming up soon.

Have a great day,

Dear 3 / 4 K,

We are going to visit Harold and Jan in the Life Education Van today.  Our time is straight after recess.  I’m sure you will enjoy the visit, particularly as it fits in with our Inquiry topic of ‘Happy, Healthy Me’.

Mrs. Robinson will be coming in to help us with our Book Club lesson today.  The focus is on relationships between characters and what clues we can look for when reading.

This Thursday is Daffodil Day which is a fund raising event to help raise money for cancer research and support.  If you bring along a gold coin donation you can wear yellow to school.

Have a great day,

From Mr. Kilmartin

Homework – Term 3 Week 7

A homophone is a word that sounds the same as another word, but has a different meaning and is spelt differently.

For example: there/their/they’re

All of these words sound the same but are spelt differently and have a different meaning. It is important we use the correct homophones when we are writing.

Your homework is to write each of the homophones ‘there’, ‘their’  and ‘they’re’ into sentences.

For example:

  • The car is parked over there.
  • The family went and washed their car.
  • They’re going to the zoo.

Dear 3 / 4 K,

We have a couple of special visitors at LRPS today.  Harold and Jan have arrived at our school and will be here for the next week.  Our grade’s turn to go and see them is next Tuesday.

SEDA will be running a tabloid type sports program today called Move-opoly.  We will be doing this with 3 other grades.  Mrs. Hammet’s grade will be visiting the Life Ed Van at this time so Mrs. Lewellin’s grade will be joining us instead.  It will go for an hour after recess.

Due to a few rearrangements of timetabling we will not be able to have Maths Rotations today.

Don’t forget your Premiers Reading Challenge forms and Walking Excursion forms.

Have a great day,

From Mr. Kilmartin
