After we created our signs, we uploaded them to Seesaw and recorded why we had made each of our design choices.
In Year Three Blue, we have been diving into persuasive writing!
We have been exploring the structure of persuasive texts and the language features and devices that contribute to successful writing.
Our current persuasive topic is ‘Would you rather a dog or a cat as a pet?’ We are passionate and enthusiastic about sharing our opinions and ideas for both the dogs and cats ‘teams’ (Ayaan even made his very own cat statue decoration at home!).
We have been making cat and dog masks in class and are preparing to have a respectful debate by drafting some of our convincing arguments for each pet choice.
Some our convincing reasons include:
‘Cats don’t make a lot of mess. Dogs shed their hair and leave hair everywhere! Also, dogs might jump into water and make a mess everywhere. A cat won’t do that!’ – Zoya
‘Dogs are super fluffy. You can cuddle with them.’ – Thomas
‘Cats are not lazy…they actually play a lot! Also, they take showers on their own.’ – Veronika
‘Dogs are better because they can do tricks!’ – Sofia
‘Dogs don’t sleep all day. They are more playful than cats.’ – Aidan
We love voicing our opinions in Three Blue and we think persuasive writing is totally PAWesome!
From the Year Three Blue students & Miss Williams
We’ve been busy in 3 Gold looking at the way that communities change over time and the ways that they remain the same (continuity). We have been excited by changes at St Emilie’s over the years, especially looking at aerial photos of the school site way back to 1953. We have spent this week looking CAREFULLY at changes in photo’s and putting them in order according to photographic evidence.
It has been really fun to talk to people who have been here for a long time and changes they can remember. Mrs Airey helped us by remembering what the building with the white roof was that was here before the school building. It was Father’s house and it was where the Year 3/4 block is built now! We are busy thinking of questions we are wondering about because next week we are going to interview one of the students who was at St Emilie’s when it first opened. We are hoping that she can find her ‘very tiny’ Pre-Primary uniform which is still the gold and blue colours that we have now and the same logo (continuity) … but the school hadn’t been named St Emilie’s yet – it was called Canning Vale Catholic Primary School and there were only about 40 students in the whole school (change)!
