Term Two Class Presentations

Today, 3/4C students delivered class presentations related to our inquiry topic.

We have been studying sustainability in class, and the students have been building their knowledge about a variety of environmental issues throughout the past nine weeks.

The class presentations were prepared at home as a homework task. Students chose a specific topic related to sustainability. They completed research at home and created a visual display (eg. slideshow or poster) to complement their presentation.

A variety of topics were chosen, including:

  • Active travel
  • Take Three For The Sea
  • Compost
  • Protecting marine life and endangered birds
  • Recycling
  • Plastic bags
  • Sea Shepherd
  • World Wildlife Fund
  • Hooded Plovers
  • Borrow and Bring Back Bags
  • Clean Up Australia Day

Prior to today, we discussed the important elements of a quality presentation.

All students worked hard at:

  • Speaking clearly and loudly
  • Making eye contact with the audience
  • Elaborating on information when necessary
  • Engaging the audience with a smile!

Here are some photos from our presentations.

After each presentation, students were provided with quality feedback from the class. Presenting in front of an audience, which is called public speaking, is not an easy task, but it can be very rewarding. Miss Jordan is incredibly proud of all of the students in 3/4C for doing such a wonderful job with their presentations!

Inquiry Update

This term, we are studying two inquiry topics.

  • Grade three students have been learning all about the history and geography of our beautiful town, Barwon Heads.
  • Grade four students have been focussing on the indigenous Australians, life in Britain in the eighteenth century and European settlement in our country.


Last week, students delivered class presentations related to our inquiry topics. Students prepared their information and slideshows as a homework task and Miss Jordan was impressed and proud of all students. Everyone did a fantastic job sharing their knowledge with the class!
