Year 4

Term 1, 2020

All Year 4 students have made a fantastic start to the school year and have enjoyed getting to know their new teachers and classmates. We have loved meeting all our new students and families and are looking forward to developing great learning partnerships as the Term continues.

The Year 4 teachers in 2020 are:

4N – Miss Notenboom

4H - Mr Hickey

4P – Miss Portelli

4DW – Mrs Devers (M,T,W) and Mrs Wills (W, Th, F)

4FM – Mrs Maskell (M,T,W) and Mrs Ferguson (W, Th, F)

Our ‘Theme’ for Term 1 is “One Country many Faces” where students will have the opportunity to learn about and celebrate Australia’s multicultural society. In our writing sessions we will start the Term writing about biographies followed by continuing to develop our narrative writing skills.

It is expected that students in Year 4 read for 20 minutes per night and record their nightly reading into their diaries, which are then signed by parents/guardians. The students are also expected to complete weekly homework and mathletics tasks, as assigned by their teacher. Additionally students are strongly encouraged to begin practicing and learning their times tables at home.

We look forward to continuing to get to know all our students and families as the Term progresses. Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions or concerns.
