Here’s some highlights from the term thus far…
At the start of Term 3, we had two young men join us: Konstantin and Ollie. Three weeks in, they’re part of the team, and it’s easy to forget that they’re new.
Early this term we finished our self portraits. They are hanging in the school hallway for you to check out, next time you are in.
For topic, we’re taking a look at history. We’ll begin to focus on the 1920’s: the period of our upcoming school production.
We’ve been focusing on the properties and behaviour of magnets.
We’ve been learning to participate in “Literacy Circles”. The students are in groups of 5, with each group reading the same novel. They have different roles to fulfil, such as “Discussion Director”, “Passage Picker”, “Word Master” etc. Every 3 days they have a discussion day where they discuss and share what they have prepared.
On Friday 10th August, we had our annual cross country event. An all around good effort and attitude from the Year 4’s. No tears, just flushed faces!
