YEAR 3 'EXPLORERS AND ADVENTURERS' EXIT POINT

The sun shone down on Wednesday for the Year 3 Exit Point. 

To celebrate all the amazing work the children have been doing, our Year 3 parents were invited into school to dive into the world of exploration, visit and wander around the living timeline exhibition of explorers and adventurers from the past and present, and our botanical art gallery.

In the last 8 weeks, Year 3 children have been researching explorers and adventurers: some who have made historical voyages of discovery and had an impact on the world around us and some who more recently overcome adversities (such as racism, gender equality, etc) to achieve amazing feats. 

From Charles Darwin and his theory of evolution to Amelia Earheart being the first female pilot to fly around the world (almost) to Ernest Shackleton and his artic adventures, the children were confidently sharing what they have learnt about these amazing explorers.

Recently they had been researching about modern explorers who have overcome adversities to achieve success, such as Jan Mela (a polish double amputee who walked to the North and South pole), Mae Jamieson (the first black women in space), and Tenzing Norgay (one of the first people to reach the summit of Everest). The children have truly been inspired and it was very impressive to hear the children regaling their parents with all the facts and information they had learnt.

One of the highlights of the whole Exit point was the exceptional dance performance that Mr Chris Ernest had choreographed and taught to all the year 3s. Many parents commented on how professional it looked and Ms Hill was also impressed with how serious the Y3 children looked and their determination to do the beautiful dance justice! Thank you, Mr and Mrs Ernest, for all your hard work.

Thank you to all the parents who came along to see their children's work. It was lovely to have you all with us on campus again and celebrating your children's learning! We look forward to doing this more next academic year!
