Term Three Begins!

Today is the first day of term three.

After two weeks of holidays, the students in 4A and 4B returned to school today. We have a great term three ahead of us, with plenty of learning and fun to be had!

Some of our learning will focus on:

  • Time
  • Problem solving
  • Sustainability
  • Joined handwriting
  • Writing information reports and narratives


At the end of last term, the students were taught how to write haiku poems. This form of poetry is traditionally written about the seasons, nature or the environment, however you can really write them about anything you like!

Haiku poems are a Japanese form of poetry, and they do not rhyme. They have three lines and each line has a specific number of syllables. The structure of a haiku poem is:

Line 1: Five syllables

Line 2: Seven syllables

Line 3: Five syllables
