Dear Parents and Children,
I am pleased to report another full and busy week of learning has passed in the year 3-4 classroom.
Firstly, we were happy to welcome back Nathan after his absence. We are glad he is well.
The year 3-4 students conducted an excellent assembly about teamwork and showed off what they have been learning about in IPC. Well done to them for their hard work!
In English this week, the year 3 students learned about “ch” words that make an “sh” sound and the year 4 students learned about “sc” letters making an “s” sound. We also started a new unit on humorous poems looking at limericks and other funny poems. They got to write their own valentine’s poem using rhyme and syllable rhythm.
In Math we also started a new unit in geometry with a quick revision of 2-D and 3-D shapes and how we can see examples of these in everyday life. We moved on to understanding coordinates on a grid and the students had fun being pirates hunting for treasure.
In IPC we continued our exploration of active earth, looking at tsunamis in relation to earthquakes. In groups we created a “active earth dance showing how plate tectonics, earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis are related.
In P.E. we started net and wall games by learning about the fundamentals of volleyball. We will look at badminton and tennis as well in the coming weeks.
That is all for this week. Have a wonderful weekend.
