Dear 3 / 4 K,

Thursdays are busy days where you get to do a variety of lessons.  This is a great way to show that you have got a Growth Mindset.

I’m looking forward to seeing you display this positive mindset.

Don’t forget that homework is due tomorrow.  Those children who complete their homework will get to play Mr. Andrew’s game at Unit Assembly tomorrow.

Dear 3 / 4 K,

All the teachers are looking for children to display a Growth Mindset and it is going to be a major focus right throughout the year.  I have seen some wonderful examples of children in this grade showing a positive mindset when it comes to their learning.

Looking forward to seeing everybody display this today,

Here is some information about bullet ants.  Your homework for this week is to read this information and write down what you think the main point of the article is.  This needs to be written in your own words.

Bullet Ants

Called bullet ants because victims often describe the feeling of being stung by this ant as equal to the feeling of being shot by a gun, a person bitten by this ant can feel throbbing and unabated pain that can last for more than a day.
