Homework is starting up for Term 4; it was handed out on Friday and is due back at school by next Friday. The reading requirements haven’t changed; students are required to complete reading on 5 different days (this can include the weekend), write it in their diary and get it signed by a parent/guardian.
The maths portion of homework is also the same but with a focus on our Investigations topic of Australian History. Once again, students have been given maths problem solving questions to complete at home. Each week they are required to complete at least one of the three questions and explain how they solved it in their homework book. If they would like to attempt more than 1, that would be fantastic. For those students who were absent or didn’t bring the sheets home today, you can access the questions by clicking on the following link: Homework Term 4

During Investigations this term, the Grade 3/4’s having been learning and investigating about Australian History. In particular about the life and times of settlers from the First Fleet and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Mitch from 3/4A decided to investigate a little further, and at home created what he imagined the home of someone living in 1788 would look like. Mitch used a variety of materials that he had at home such as wood to make the base and rocks, bark and sticks from his backyard to form the structure.
Wonderful work Mitch!
The Grade 3/4’s have been busy working hard on their skills both inside and outside of the classroom. As part of their Awesome Activities, a group of dedicated students put their patience to the test as they filmed a trick shot video. We are proud to present ‘Trick Shots are Hard III’.

Today we celebrated Book Week with our book character dress up day. As you can see from the photos below (click to enlarge), many families put in lots of time and effort and created some amazing costumes. Hope everyone had a fun day!
Just a reminder that tomorrow is Book Week Dress Up Day. Students are invited to dress up as their favourite book character from a story they love to read or have read to them. We will be holding an early assembly tomorrow afternoon featuring a parade of all the fantastic costumes.
See you tomorrow!
This term our students have loved learning about Australian History. So far we have looked at the lifestyle of Indigenous Australians, the journey of the First Fleet and their colonisation in Australia, and this week we have looked at the Gold Rush and the impact it had on our country. Not only did the students learn about different gold mining technique, they also had the chance to look for gold!
