What a year!

It has been such a fantastic year in 4EK. I am sad to be leaving grade 4 and making the move to year 6 next year.
I have made a little something for everyone to remember what a wonderful year we have had together.
I hope everyone has a fantastic summer break and I look forward to seeing you all next year.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Origami Scrapbooks in 4EK

Today the year 4’s had Amy’s beautiful mum Pam and sister Paige come in and help them to make Origami scrapbooks.

In the beginning the students found it very difficult to get the folding correct. But once this part was complete they got to decorate their beautiful scrapbooks.

We would love to say a HUGE thank you to Pam and Paige for coming in and sharing their talents with all of the year 4’s.

Year 3 & 4 Timor Leste Bargain Bazaar

Today at our school was our fantastic market day ‘Timor Leste Bargain Bazaar’. This was part of our Inquiry unit for term 4. The students needed to create a business to help raise money for our sister school in Timor Leste. It was a fabulous day. The teachers were blown away with what the students had created. Some of the store included,

  • Queen of Nails
  • Lolly Land
  • Cupcake Queens
  • General Store
  • Face Painting
  • Lemonade
  • Sip n Slice
  • Ned’s Jelly
  • Lollies R Us
  • Flip a coin
  • and many more…..

After a busy 2 hours of selling items it was time for the students to count their earnings with some help from their teachers. Overall we teachers were amazed at how much the students raised for our sister school in Timor Leste.

Our grand total was

$2068.15

WELL DONE TO ALL STUDENTS IN YEAR 3 & 4!

We also want to say a huge thank you to all parents who helped us out in making this day be such a success.

Our Blogging Buddies

Today was a very terrible day when we heard that our Blogging Buddies 4B. Their school flooded with all the rain that we had in the last 24 hours. We all said a prayer today for them and hope their school gets fixed as soon as possible, so we can continue sharing our fantastic learning with one another both on our blogs and over Skype.

Below are some kind words written by the students in 4EK for Miss T and the students in 4B

Dear 4B,

I was very sad to hear that our blogging buddies school had been flooded. I really hope that you and your school are all right. I hope that your school can get fixed as soon as possible and you can get back to learning, I also really want to Skype you guys again. Hopefully nothing like this ever happens again, well good luck for the future and I hope your school gets fixed.  

From Hannah 

I prayer for the school in Mildura that they are safe and I pray for class 4B that their classroom gets fixed. Everything will be ok don’t worry. I prayer that everyone gets to go back to school soon. I prayer that Miss T and class 4B are well and didn’t get hurt. I prayer that the school get fixed soon and kids get back to school. I prayer that all there work they have been doing at school is fine. Sorry for what has happened.

        From Catia

 

Skype in 4EK

On Friday, 4EK had a Skype session with another year 4 class in Sydney. This was a fantastic Skype session where the students shared, and compared the similarities and differences between both classes/schools. One of the biggest differences between both our schools was that their school was a Bilingual school where they learnt Korean everyday. We can not wait for our next Skype session.

Questions:

  • What were some of the similarities we discovered between both our classes?
  • What were some of the differences we discovered between both our classes?
  • What did you enjoy about this Skype session?
