Last week the wait for the Year Four class was finally over as their new teacher arrived back from his leave. Many questions were finally answered and for some, having their first male teacher was the highlight of their day.
The Year Four’s have had an extremely busy start to the term but excitement stemmed from writing letters to their unknown pen pals from Sacred Heart School in Thornlie.
After completing a few ‘getting to know you’ activities, the Year Fours were busy at work as they learnt about the Church, the Apostles of Jesus and the Bishops that look after the Churches in our area. Further to this, students engaged in a number of hands on Place Value and measurement activities in Maths, explored safe places and warning signs in Health and began their rotational reading activities, poetry and spelling program in literacy!’
Finally, students have been exploring our history as they have been learning about the First Fleet in HASS.
With the term well and truly underway, the Year Fours are now right in the swing of things!
Sincere thanks to the Year Four’s for making me feel so welcome not only in the class but at St Judes as well!
