Year 4


Welcome Back to Term 4!

Term 4 is upon us already and it’s hard to believe it’s the last Term of 2018 and we nearing Christmas.  Year 4CL students have been doing a wonderful job taking it in turns looking after our class pets, ‘Charlie and Sultana’ (our Spiny Leaf Insects)! Thank you for those families who have already had them for a stay over the weekend (or longer). 

 

For this term, Mrs Loulier will be teaching 4CL on Tuesday, Thursdays and Friday and Ms Cutler will be teaching on Mondays and Wednesdays.  There have been some minor changes to the weekly schedule.

Inquiry

Our Inquiry focus this term is Geography and Sustaining Environments. We will be looking at how does the environment support the lives of people and other living things and how do different views about the environment influence approaches to sustainability? It links to the Victorian Curriculum descriptors (VCGGK077) and (VCGGK082).

 

Digital Technology and Seesaw

This term we will continue with learning about using email to communicate and working on our word processing and typing skills. Students have been using Seesaw weekly and uploading work pieces for you to view and comment on.  If you haven’t already looked at Seesaw, we really encourage you to do so in order to be kept in the loop of what your child has been doing in class.  

 

Homework

Homework will continue to be given on a Friday and due back on the following Thursday.  It is expected that students read at least 1 hour a week.  Please ensure your child is filling in the time in his/her diary and sign their diary and homework once completed.
