Scienceworks Excursion Tomorrow!

Year 4 Scienceworks Excursion      

Wednesday 30th August 2017

Dear Parents,

Just a reminder that students need to be at school and in their classroom on Wednesday the 30th of August at 8.30am. This allows time for the roll to be marked and students boarded onto buses ready for an 8.45am departure to Scienceworks.

Students should wear school uniform and bring their snack, lunch and drink bottle in a backpack or schoolbag. Please ensure that if your child has an asthma puffer, it is packed too.

Kind regards,

Year 4 Team

Fractions

Last week, 4H and 4G conducted an inquiry style approach to going deeper into learning around fractions and decimals, based on their particular area of interest. Students were given the choice of topics, for example; improper fractions, locating fractions on a number line and simplifying fractions. They assigned their name to a topic of their choice and were given time to research, utilising websites, videos, peers and teachers. Students then sorted their new learnings into a presentation to share with their peers. Lots of learning and lots of fun was had!

Here are some photos of students writing up their information reports about a piece of technology that they have chosen.

Swimming

 

Congratulations to all our year 4 swimmers. The staff at the pool and the year 4 teaching team have been impressed by the behaviour, organisation and focus of the students.

Thank you to the parent helpers who have given up their time to assist on the bus or at the pool. The program could not run without your support.

Many thanks,

Life Education

Life Education

This term, students in Year 4 have visited the Life Education Van to learn about ‘Cyber Safety’. We learnt about different computer programs and their age restrictions. Students discussed how quickly a picture or a video can become ‘viral’ and why we need to consider this before we share anything online. We learnt that before we post anything online we need to stop and T.H.I.N.K…
