Term Four Happenings

In Mathematics, students continue to work through the iMath investigations. They have just completed an investigation called ‘Aussie Adventures’ where they had to map out an adventure to visit some famous landmarks in Australia. Students needed to calculate the distances and convert them using the scale on the map. They looked at the actual road distances as well as using online tools. The final investigation they will complete is called ‘Fraction Fun’ where they will engage in a real-life experience with fractions and consolidate mathematical concepts. This investigation gives students the opportunity to plan a fraction party for the end of the year.
In English, students have begun working on an imaginative written composition around the theme of Journeys. They are innovating on an existing text by changing a variety of elements about the journey portrayed in the text. We are looking forward to reading these stories that will demonstrate students’ understanding of all the literary techniques we have explored this year.
Students have a few more weeks left to borrow books from the library. Please remind your child to check if they have any overdue books at home they need to return them as soon as possible.
Student Learning Journey
Students will continue to upload their learning onto the Seesaw platform as well as add tasks to their learning journey portfolio. We hope that you enjoy seeing your child’s growth and learning achievements. The learning journey will be sent home in the last week of school and school reports will be uploaded onto the Parent Lounge on the last day of school.
During the cooler months of November to April, students from Years 3-12 are required to wear their ties at all times and their blazers when travelling to and from school. These uniform expectations are in place from now until the end of the year.
Primary Girls (Yrs 3-6): Primary school dress with white school socks or black stockings with the blazer
Primary Boys (Yrs 3-6): long or short sleeved shirt with their shorts or trousers and black school socks with the tie and blazer
