SEK Qatar International School – Grade 3 Blog

Another sunny day in Doha

What an eventful day we had in our curious little city on this day.

To start we got to the beautiful serene Katara. The sun beat down on us as students began their scavenger hunt for clues to inquiries about the cultural village. Students had to use their mapping skills, problem solving as well as their communication and team work skills.
We got really lucky when a very nice representative from Qatar Health Week introduced herself and invited our students to take part in all their healthy living related activities and games which included making our own smoothies and playing Giant Snakes and Ladders.

When we finished with the lovely Health Week volunteers they were even kind enough to give every student a gift package.

After this we headed for the Corniche where we stopped off in Sheraton Park for some lunch and some play. The weather and the day so far was almost going too perfectly. And so it seemed, it was…
As we left the park and made our way towards the Souq we were being followed.

Slowly but surely, dark scary clouds started to surround us. They rumbled. They crawled. They growled and tumbled. About thirty seconds after arriving at Souq Waqif we decided – VAMOS!

This proved to be the best decision all day as the storm clouds burst and the roads began to flood. Making our way back to school was an adventure filled with sing songs and jokes as we huddled together and made it home safely.
What a day and what an experience, one we won’t forget anytime soon!

An Artsy Day in Doha

What a day!

Grade 3 visited the Music & Arts Atelier Doha and spent a day in the spirit of the Arts.

From piano, drumming, hip-hop dancing to painting and singing in a real life recording studio, we had one of our best days out in a long time! Thank you so much to everyone at Atelier for putting such hard work into their craft and making it a very special day for everyone, the welcome, the energy and the atmosphere was amazing!
Meli and Radi were also kind enough to give everyone a free trial for any of the classes they run so check out those forms you got and arrange another visit!!

So Grade 3’s, a small bit of reflecting for you, show your families the photos, let them know what you thought AND tell US what you think by writing a comment under the photo!

What a year!

Wow, what a year! We have done a lot of great things this year and participated in many fun and exciting projects all while developing skills needed for next year and beyond. All Grade 3 students deserve a big round of applause for all their fantastic achievements this year.

As the school year comes to a close, it is time to think back and appreciate all the great memories we had in Grade 3. From all our field trips to various school events, we have really been busy all year long! Below is just one of the many highlights of the year.

Could you write a comment below and let us know which were the best moments of Grade 3 for you?

Any excuse to dress up!

To draw a conclusion on our last Unit of Inquiry, Grade 3 decided a trip to the Qatar Scientific Club was in order so we set off on our lovely buses.
Here we were met by Illona and her welcoming team for a day full of experimenting and discovery.
You can see from the album below there was no shortage of intrigue as we revised chemical and physical reactions, created density towers and changed states of matter.
We got to observe ( from a safe distance 🙂 ) what happens when hot water is cooled by liquid nitrogen, can you guess what happened?

Something a bit like this …

Check out our young scientists getting hands on with Matter!

By the way, we also totally bossed it during our recent Sports Day organised by our fantastic PE Team here at SEK!

Huge congrats to everyone for taking part and trying their very best on the day. It was great to see hard work and sweat everywhere. One thing which we really enjoyed seeing was people winning and losing well, remembering it’s all just a bit of fun at the end of the day.
Thanks again PE and to all who helped make it a brilliant day for everyone.
Parents, if you took any photos please do feel free to share with us and we can add them to the blog as sometimes we’re not able to take as many photos as we would like.
Grade 3 out!

WHAT A DAY! 

Grade 3 took to Doha like a duck to water, exploring and inquiring around our wonderful city, finding out many different pieces of interesting information all the while having so much fun with our friends!

Thanks to Doha Bus for providing their cool open top bus which proved a great way to observe our surroundings.

Culture was the order of the day and we were spoiled for choice in Katara and Souq Waqif. Students were balancing the adventure with hard work as their completed their task booklets.

Even with the heat, everyone had a blast and showed super enthusiasm throughout the day. Big shout out to our parent helpers who were invaluable as always.

Leave your comments below, tell us what you learnt, what you enjoyed or what you would like to know more about.
Hope you all had as much fun as us, looking forward to planning our next trip!! 🙂

Ms. Zita & Mr. Joe

Character Day!

We dedicated this week to celebrating our good old friends: BOOKS! Book Week at SEK was full of exciting activities, including writing and illustrating our own class story, listening to “mystery readers” and the best part was spending a day dressed up as a book character. Students made a huge effort at costumes, take a look at them below!
