This semester there students have been researching An Australian Sacred Place of their choice.
They worked in mixed groups of Year 3 and 4.
The students then were responsible to research a specific part of the Sacred Place and to then present back to their group.
Once this was complete the group decided on how they would present their information to the rest of the class.
We were so proud of the learning we had i -movies, powerpoint and some hand written presentations.
Your child has got a copy of the presentation on their laptop to share with you
Please enjoy the amazing learning with them
Our 3&4 Research Groups
Today Mrs Adams donated some of her fish to the fish farm and we went and helped her settle them in. The fish went into the tank with the African Cichlids. They all seemed to settle in well and found nice places to hide while they get to know their new tank mates. We talked about what fish were already in there and where they came from. Next to the tank there was some information about the water conditions these fish needed to survive and we learnt about what this means.

After assembly, students and families are invited back to their classrooms for a shared lunch. Students are encouraged to bring a plate of food that represents their culture
Today we were busy putting the finishing touches on our lanterns.
This week we designed then constructed our lanterns.
Everyone used the character strength of creativity to create their lantern with original designs.
We then saw team work as studentswho had completed their designs assist their classmates.
