Welcome to Grade 4/5. Students in this class begin to take on the role of leaders within the school. We have a clear focus on having a growth mindset where we all believe we can learn and improve, focus on celebrating our successes and setting achievable goals. We set high expectations for ourselves and our peers both in and out of the classroom and we actively model these for the younger students. We look out for each other, stand up for each other and praise each other. Our classroom is a family and we help one another to achieve our very best.
This term the 4/5 students are studying the topic of Under the Sea. We are exploring the different levels of the oceans and all the weird and wonderful animals that live there as well as how we can help look after our oceans and the effect climate change is having.
The whole school is also lucky enough to take part in a week long Science program run by Deakin Science this term. The students in 4/5 are looking forward to exploring the science heat and temperature and complete some hands on activities!
The students are also able to take part in various sporting days and activities throughout the year. This term, we have had our whole school Cross Country Carnival and now have District Cross Country fast approaching and we also have a 4 week ‘Touch Rugby’ clinic coming up, as well as our whole school swimming program.
During this term, our school will also celebrate Education Week with a Special Friend’s Day, Simultaneous Story Time and a Book Fair!
