Welcome back to Term 2

Our theme for this term is ‘Forces in Motion’ where students will be learning about physical sciences, exploring friction, magnets and how objects move when force is applied. As part of our unit, students will participate in an upcoming incursion with engaging demonstrations and hands on activities. We will follow this up by conducting some exciting science experiments in class!

This term the grade 4’s will also begin our weekly Times tables competition! This will be held every Friday afternoon and at the end of the term the winners will be announced at an assembly. We strongly encourage students to be practicing their tables each night.

We remind parents and students that the required nightly reading is 15 minutes and students are expected to complete Mathletics tasks set by classroom teachers.

We look forward to a productive term of learning and growing!

Welcome Back to Term 1

Year 4 students have had a great start to the year. They are settled, ready to learn and have a big year ahead! 

We welcome Miss Portelli in 4P to the Year 4 team and we welcome back Mrs Massey (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) and Mrs Wills (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday) in 4MW. 

Throughout this term, students will be learning  about ‘One Country, Many Faces’. This theme is focused on Australia’s multicultural society, the acceptance of everyone and understanding and valuing other students’ backgrounds, traditions and cultures.

Year 4 students will participate in a rotation of interesting learning tasks surrounding the meaning of Harmony Day. We will be attending an excursion to the Immigration Museum as part of this unit.  

In Year 4 we encourage nightly reading and ask students to fill out their green reading journal.

We look forward to a fantastic year!
