Year Four Gold began the term by celebrating National Diabetes Week. To learn more about diabetes we watched two ‘Behind the News’ stories and then participated in a variety of integrated literacy tasks. The topic was also picked up in the student’s Health Lesson with Mr Davis. Later we also worked collaboratively in small groups and used a simple and familiar tune to create a song about diabetes, that will hopefully help to educate others about this serious health issue. We are currently adding the final finishing touches to our songs and look forward to sharing them at our 3-way interviews.
Luke holds the “Sun” while Isabelle holds “Earth” to demonstrate how Earth orbits the Sun.
In Year Four Blue we have had a great start to our Integrated Inquiry unit titled: Curiosity, Why, Why, Why? As a class we are learning about the relationship between the Sun and the Earth. We have found some really interesting facts so far. We also visited the websites below. Did you know that the scale of the Earth to the Sun (in diameter) is approximately 110 to 1? This means that approximately 1.3 million Earths could “fit” in side the Sun! There is now so much more we want to learn about Space – stay tuned for more discoveries!
Congratulations to all our House Cross Country winners for 2014 – a fabulous effort! Congratulations also to all students who gave it their very best and finished off their race, earning valuable points for their House team.
The Interschool Team will head off next Thursday to compete between our regional Catholic Primary schools at Tomato Lake. Please make sure your child’s Bus Permission Slip is signed and returned ASAP, thank you.
A special thank you to Mr Davis for organising Cross Country training over the last number of weeks – very generous use of your free time and greatly appreciated in our lead up to the event.
