Term Three Begins!

We are back for term three!

After a two week break, it was great to see all of the 3/4C students again.

To reflect on their school holidays, students had to think of one specific activity or experience they enjoyed during the holidays. Students were required to write at least three interesting clues that described or explained the activity without using really obvious words. It was quite challenging! Students then drew a picture of their holiday memory to go alongside their clues.

Read each student’s holiday clues below. After each page of clues you will see the drawn picture with the answer!

We are all looking forward to another fantastic term of learning and fun!

Last Day Of Term Three

Today is the last day of term three.

It has been an action packed 10 weeks in 4B. All of the students have worked very hard and learnt a lot this term.

We have had a number of highlights this term, including:

To celebrate the end of term and to raise money for our two fundraising organisations, Red Cross and River’s Gift, today was Footy Colours Day. Students and teachers dressed up in their footy gear or footy colours for a gold coin donation.

Check out the slideshow below to see the 4B students supporting their favourite sporting team!

We will return to school for our final term on Monday 5th October.

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

Read our haiku poems below.
