I was a guy from World War 2. At the start of the day , we all went to the gym and all the classes took turns in walking around in circles for the parade.


It was so much fun!

3B’s Wide World of Sports

This week has been full of lots of physical activity and fun in 3B!

On Tuesday 11 students from 3B represented our school at the Geelong Arena for the Hoop Time Basketball round robin. All students participated in a number of games and developed their dribbling skills. Indy’s team won all games and will progress to the next stage in the competition. Well done Indy and all students who participated!

Check out 3B! We have 3 girls representing our class with 1st,2nd and 3rd going to Ginger, Indy and Greta and Mitch came 2nd overall for the BHPS boys. Well done 3B!


On Wednesday, the House Athletics were held at Landy Field. The weather did not look promising as we boarded the buses in the morning, however the sun came out and all students were involved in a great day!

Our Inquiry into the Solar System, Night and Day

This term 3B have been investigating Night and Day and the solar system. We have been learning to research using non-fiction texts and online sources to help us to understand what causes night and day and investigate our solar system.

In Reading, we have been learning to summarise non-fiction texts. This is a tricky skill as it requires us to identify the topic sentence and key ideas and words to show what the text is mostly about. We practised this through buddy reading and highlighting key words and taking notes using dot points.

In Writing, students worked with their partners to investigate a planet and take notes from a short piece of information about that planet. Students presented their summaries on posters and they are pictured below.

Your posters look terrific 3B!

What strategies do you use to help you summarise key details?
