Grade 4 – Term 4

Welcome back to the final term for 2015. It is hard to believe that your son or daughter is nearing the end of another year of their learning journey. The first three weeks of Term 4 includes a range of formal testing that enables us, as educators, to gather another layer of data to support teacher assessment of student learning and achievement. Learning occurs at different times and at different rates for individual students and what teachers are looking for is evidence of growth in a student’s learning. Your children work hard each and every day in the classroom and as teachers we are very proud of their efforts and focus.

There are two units planned for Term 4. The first unit has a History focus and is called Why Explore? Why Settle? This unit looks at the journeys of early navigators such as Christopher Columbus and Marco Polo, leading into Captain Cook’s discovery of Australia and The First Fleet.

The second unit has an Earth/Space Science focus. The unit will commence in Week 7. In this unit students will investigate the Earth’s surface changes over time as a result of natural processes and human activity

Next week is camp and we are all looking forward to our stay at Beechworth. As Team Leader I would like to thank the team for all the time that they have put into the organisation of this event whilst I was on Long Service Leave! It promises to be a wonderful experience for the children and one which will enhance and deepen their understanding of Australian History whilst providing an opportunity to enjoy the company and friendship of their peers and teachers in another setting other than the classroom.

Grade 4 Camp Meeting – Monday 20th July from 6:30 to 7:00pm


Dear Parents,

As you are aware we are pleased to offer our Grade 4 students the chance to participate in our exciting camp program in 2015.

Camps provide opportunities for students to develop improved social skills, confidence, independence and challenge themselves to take responsible risks.

The Grade 4 camp will be based in Beechworth (VIC) and will run for 2 nights/3 days (Wednesday 14th October to Friday 16th October, 2015). This is a camp that will assist students in their educational needs including an insight into Australian History. The camp will help students prepare for being away from home for an extended period and thereby making the transition to senior school camp in grades 5 and 6 (4 nights/5 days) more manageable.

You are invited to attend a brief information night regarding the 2015 Grade 4 Camp. The Grade Four Teachers will outline:

  • Costs
  • Venue
  • Activities

The meeting will take place on Monday, 20th July 6:30-7:00pm in the staffroom.
