This year’s grade 3/4 camp took place at Camp Rumbug (near Foster North). Students were challenged by a wide variety of activities including abseiling, aeroball, flying fox, canoeing, raft building, orienteering, team challenge and a mud run. Students rose to the challenges and demonstrated the importance of the You Can Do It Keys (particularly the Term 2 focus – persistence). The school newsletter item (including photos) can be viewed by clicking here.
Lots of teamwork was required as well as hard work, a good example of this was the activity groups pulling together for the raft building.
A major challenge was the abseiling with students needing to conquer the height of this obstacle as well as listening carefully to the instructions of the Camp Rumbug staff.
It proved to be a very successful and enjoyable camp.Read More »

Students at the 3/4 level have been working on lines and angles. As well as discussing, estimating and measuring acute, obtuse and right angles we also looked at how they are used in the real world. We made paper airplanes discussing each fold as we formed a range of right angles. We then tested our planes.Read More »
The beginning of the year is the perfect time to discuss how to select a “Just Right” book. These books can then be used for independent reading. In order to effectively do this, students need to be able to describe the features of a book that is too hard for them as well as a book that is too easy. Once they have done this they are able to successfully identify the features of a “Just Right” book. 3/4W created this easy to use table that is displayed in class. It can be viewed by clicking here.Read More »

Grade 3/4S recently learned that it is easy to get ‘ripped off’ when using cash for purchases! Some very devious shop keepers were asked to secretly short change their class mates during a shopping activity. Some savvy shoppers worked it out very quickly – but some had to tally up their purchases and check what cash they had remaining before they even realised they had been had!Read More »
