Our Final Blog Post for 2017

Today is our last day of school for 2017 and we spent some time reflecting on what the year meant to us...

I’ve liked this year. We’ve done a lot of fun class like going on excursions. We’ve learnt about how we can reuse things like making toys out of plastic. I’ve also learnt how to be a leader because I was SRC. Hopefully I’m in the same class in grade 6 – Chantelle

I’ve really loved this year cos we’ve had a good teacher and we’ve learnt more about the environment and we got out to do stuff for an Inquiry action. I know that I’ll be with all my friends next year and I hope and I hope Ms Scott’s class is just as good – Pat
 
I’ve enjoyed being a grade 4 this year and my teacher has been doing lots of interesting stuff and the main Inquiry question was “How do we care for our common Home was really interesting. We’ve learnt a lot and if one of us struggled to understand something Ms Scott tried to explain it and helped us a lot. Also Ms Scott is really creative and uses lots of recycled plastic and paper and cardboard – Sophie
This year has been really good. I had a really great teacher and I overcame bullying. I’ve found out how much rubbish there is in Australia through our Inquiry – Inti

This year has been amazing. Everyone has learnt so much and grown so much. Our teacher has pushed us with work that challenges us. Everyone has a great year with our teacher – Caitlin

This year has been the best year ever because in 2ndterm we did biology for our Inquiry and I love animals and nature. I’ve learnt a lot this year in maths like decimals and multiplication and division. I’ve had a wonderful class this year. On Friday afternoon 2 weeks ago it started to rain really hard and a lot of the people at school left early. The last people in our class were me, eve, Tilly, Chantelle and Ryan. We had to take off our shoes and socks to walk to the office – Scarlett

Dec and Joel’s P.E. lesson




Reflection on Dec and Joel’s P.E. lesson
Standouts:
Dec – Alexander for catching and fielding with everything that he had. Good technique
Joel - Max and Bianca, because they were fair players and they didn’t argue and they didn’t walk out of the game
Feedback for D n J:
Bianca – very good that you did this
Olivia – Dec cheered people on and helped them
Max – you set up group and helped us
Oscar – good sports
Rosie – it was good how you encouraged people and told them what to do
James – you were encouraging and good sports
Yar – it was really fun!
Erin – it was good if someone needed help you explained it
Next Time:
Rosie – just do one sport
Bianca – do class versus class
Celia - less people walking off
Sophie S. – good to learn a less familiar sport
Chantelle – need to be aware of numbers e.g. basketball
Caitlin – focus just on one sport, because if you have 2 sports going it could get confusing. Otherwise you taught the skills well.

Sustainable Art - Bird Feeders

Over the last 2 weeks, we made bird feeders in Art, using old plastic containers and bottles and bark we found around our gardens. Some of us made a bird feeder (or bird hotel) with a partner and some of us chose to make one on our own.
