Mrs Cogger accumulates a lot of lost property. Most of it is left in the Multi Purpose Room or she finds it left in the undercover area where the children eat their recess and lunch. You can find the Lost Property box just outside the door to MPR. There are currently a few hats and jackets without names in the box. There is also a HUGE collection of small containers. These containers are mostly used for ‘Crunch and Sip’. Here is a photo of the collection that has accumulated already and it’s only the end of week 3. I will leave these at the reception with Mrs Reid. If you recognise an item that should be in your kitchen cupboard please drop into reception and claim it.
Please read about the busy and productive start to the term we have had in Year Four Gold.
We begin the term preparing for our Inter-school Athletics carnival.
This is to be held in week 3, over 2 separate days.
On Wednesday 28th October we compete in the Field Events and then on Friday 30th October we conclude the carnival with the Track events.
Both days will be held at the Ern Clark Athletics Centre, which is now one of the best facilities in the state. After winning the carnival last year, we are hoping we will be strong contenders again this year.
We are also beginning this term with European Handball. This is a very energetic and team based sport that the kids are absolutely loving. It is a sport that is quite new to most year groups, but it is amazing how quickly they have picked up the skills.
We will also be doing some Ultimate Frisbee, Basketball and Cricket skills to close out the year.
There will be an opportunity for some of our year 6 students who were part of cricket team to be guests at the WACA for the first day of the test against NZ. This will be an awesome opportunity for these children to see Australia’s best cricketers, live in the flesh!
The major focus in Health this term will be basic First Aid and Safety Awareness.
Many classes have already discussed the importance of having access to a First Aid Kit, what we should expect to find in a First Aid Kit, and how we would use those items in different situations.
We will also be looking at the various clubs and groups that we belong to – focussing on how we contribute and also how clubs and groups have the potential of helping develop us positively as people.
Finally in Health this term we will also be looking at our how we nurture and develop positive, healthy relationships particularly with our family and friends.
Have a good term everyone.

Dear Mums and Dads,
We are really working hard to try and raise the money we need to upgrade our Junior Undercover Area into a new teaching and learning space.
Organisers of THE BIG NIGHT IN on FRIDAY 13th November are currently seeking prizes for raffles on the night.
Perhaps you know a business owner who may be happy to donate a prize? Perhaps you have a friend who makes something special? perhaps you have a gift or a voucher at home that is brand new that you are happy to donate? If you do, we would really love to hear from you!
No matter how BIG or small, all prizes will be very much appreciated and any surplus ones will be used for the St Emilie’s School Fete next year.
We understand that not everyone will be able to come on the night, so perhaps this might be a great way for your family to support the P&F!
Please phone the school office on 92569696.
PS Can’t help with a prize? How about rallying your friends and coming along to the Big Night In. Phone the Office to book your ticket!
Please read our class newsletter to find out what we are learning about in Year Four Gold during Term Four.
Welcome back to what we anticipate will be a very productive final term of Year Four. The students have begun the teaching and learning program with enthusiasm and a hard working attitude, which is great to see.
In Maths we are learning about graphs and how to conduct effective surveys by creating quality questions and then collecting data. We are discovering how graphs make it easy for us to interpret data visually. The students created survey questions then asked other class members what their favourite takeaway foods were. Next we recorded this data using tallies and then interpreted the results.
Please find below the Year Four ‘Purposeful Practice Grid’ for Term Four – Weeks Two and Three.
