Welcome to Grade 3/4 with Sarah, Josh, Jordy & Madie!
After settling in beautifully in Term One and getting into great routines in Term Two, we have another exciting Term here in Grade 3/4. Here are some of the exciting things happening in the Term ahead…
This Term in Area 2, Grade 3/4 students will be learning all about practical applications of physics and programming. Students will demonstrate their understanding of this unit by coding their own program using Scratch and designing their own Balloon-powered Car.
Grade 3/4 students started Science in Term 1, and will begin rotating between the Area 2 teachers to learn about four S.T.E.M. topics; Chemistry, Forces, Space and Biology, this Term. Classes will begin their second rotation later this term.
Grade 3/4 has also started to look at the different Lit Circle roles within their own classes. This is an opportunity for the Grade 3’s to learn the different roles (including Discussion leader, Travel Tracker, Word Wizard, Summariser, Predictor, Fact & Opinion finder and Text Connector) as well as an opportunity for Grade 4’s to build on their skills from last year. The valuable discussion time within their groups will be facilitated by some amazing parent helpers.

To assist families in packing for camp, Anglesea Camp has provided us with a packing list.
Please note, students will also need to bring their lunch and a snack for the first day.
This Term, students will be given the choice of 4 options to complete per week.. These are sent out on Tuesday and will need to come back to school on Monday the following week.
Students are also asked to read for at least 20 minutes per night and to revise either Basic Facts Ladder or Mathletics.
