First 2 weeks back at school

Hey Everyone,

Hope you are all enjoying your first weeks back. We certainly are!

Week 1 we headed out to Melbourne Museum where we explored a range different areas, our favourite for sure was the Imax movie, did you know Bugs have super powers like night vision, mind reading, invisibility and so much more. Since being back at school we have been reflecting and expanding our wanderings around our big idea of environment.

Week 2 Skype a scientist, this week we Skyped a plant pathologist all the way from Kentucky can you believe it? we were so excited. We got to ask him so many questions and he spoke to us about rare plant diseases that will make citrus plants extinct in about 10-15 years…Goodbye orange juice and lemonade!

This week we also got a visit from Ambulance Victoria for Restart a heart day, Boy was that a challenge! We got to practice giving CPR on a rubber heart it sure is tougher than it looks.

So as you can see we have had a pretty epic first 2 weeks back at school. I can’t wait to see where the rest of the term takes us!

Hi All,

 Over the last couple of weeks in Health and Physical Education we have been participating in our Volleyball unit. In our first lesson of the unit we researched to create posters on different skills and volleyball rules. We have now been putting those skills into practice.

CBL

Hey everyone,

In CBL we have  been learning about the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We have been developing our understanding of the goals by sorting and organising the goals by completing a goals puzzle. We also completed a sketch note session from the worlds largest lesson where we learnt that the goals need to be achieved by 2030. We are finding it really interesting and inspiring to learn about what we need to change in order to make our world more sustainable.

Hey everyone,

Informative Narratives

During Term one and the start of Term two we have created informative narratives about our partner. In our informative Narratives we have factual parts and narrative parts to create an interesting story.

This Term our Big Idea is Survival. We have created our survival journals on google slides where we created our front cover and a word association page. We then joined Miss Bernardos class and in groups looked at different provocations to explore what Survival means. We have found interesting to explore survival.

Grade 4 – Term 1 Spanish – Mr Pablo

In Grade 4, we learnt to say and identify in Spanish all the different school items we use every day. Our favourite one was sacapuntas (sharpener), which made us laugh a lot! We also enjoyed doing various activities, such as playing games that were both competitive and educational, while also requiring us to display teamwork and inclusion.

‘I enjoyed learning about how different cultures greet each other’ – Zain (4B)

‘I enjoyed using Rockalingua to learn new Spanish stuff’ – Virraj (4B)

Health and Physical Education

Hi everyone,

In the last couple of weeks during Health and Physical Education we have been learning how to drop punt an AFL football. We have been practising how to hold the football, to drop it down onto our foot, and point our toe to our target. Some of us have been lucky to receive help from SEDA AFL students. We have been having lots of fun!

Thanks,

Miss Chetcuti
