Our Middle school students have challenged themselves this past week, especially our Year 3 students as they prepare for NAPLAN. We have quizzed ourselves and each other about a range of topics related to Numeracy, Reading, Language Coventions and Writing. Our Year 4 students have offered some helpful tips to help the Year 3s as they prepare for the first assessment tomorrow (Tuesday 9th of May) such as:
– shade one bubble carefully for each question
– find the key words to help you understand what the question is asking
– reread the question and check your answers
– use scrap paper to help you work out your answer
… and most important of all- do your best!
We know that the Year 3 students will show all of SMCM this week how clever they are!
