It’s Holiday Time

Posted by year4

What an amazing start to Year 4 it has been this year.  We are so proud of all the Year 4 students for their zest and curiosity; and for their commitment and  humour.  In fact, we have been astounded by the sheer number of strengths we have seen on display from this Year 4 group.

Already we have made it through assemblies and camp, as well as being well into our third unit of inquiry.  We explored  concepts such as fairness and equality and discovered the many issues that need to be considered when choosing what food we should be eating.  It has been a very busy term and  the Year 4 students have definitely earned a break.


Provoking Interest in the Human Body

Last week we started our latest unit of inquiry that focusses on taking responsibility for the well being of the students at DC.  In order to start students thinking about experiments, science, and the human body we organised a series of stations designed to get them wondering!  We had a lot of fun and the questions that came out helped guide our inquiries.  Thank you to those wonderful parents who were able to come in and help us out.

Check out the movie below to get a peek into what went on:



Replenishment of Stationery

We would greatly appreciate it if all students could return to school in January with their pencil cases restocked.  It is especially important that  everyone has pencils, a ruler, an eraser, a glue stick and a highlighter.  Thanks, in advance, for your help with this.


Celebration of Learning Reminder

Just a reminder that next term will be our Celebration of Learning.  This is an opportunity for you to come into school and see what your child has been learning about.  Students will present their learning about the body systems and run you through a series of experiments and activities.  It will be a lot of fun.  Please put the date in your diary: Thursday 14 February (approximately 10.00am – 12.30pm).  More details will be provided next term.
