Our Mini Golf competition today was a great success, thank you to the supervisors and scorers from 3/4G and thank you to all of the students who came along and participated!
Our winner was the one they call The King!
3/4G planned and created mini golf courses in Mathematics to explore the use of angles when building. They used protractors to make obstacles and even measured the required angles to putt the golf ball into the hole.
Next week we will be having a mini golf competition and have invited all 3/4 students to come and try our golf courses and even win some prizes.
Hi 3/4s guess what, it is pyjama day this Friday 16th and everyone needs to come to school in their pyjamas. It is a gold coin donation so everyone please bring a dollar or two because all the money raised is going straight to Kids Undercover charity (homeless kids). It is a fabulous cause so make sure to bring some money and dress up in your pyjamas.

Guess what?! It’s pyjama day on the last day of school! Wake up in the morning and just go to school without changing your clothes! I don’t think you need a jacket for school when you have nice and warm pyjamas!
Please remind your children that this coming Friday 16th September on last day of term, they have to wear their pyjamas to school. Gold coin donation money goes Kids Undercover (homeless children).

Small group bookclubs have been a major hit in 3/4DX this term. The students were given a range of books to preview and from that self-select the bookclub that they would like to be a part of. Bookclub is a great chance for students to share the journey of a story together and share feelings and experiences throughout. Being a part of a small bookclub allows students to connect with a book in a meaningful manner and create discussion and share thoughts around aspects of the book that are enabled through a shared experience.
‘I really enjoy bookclub – my book is quite sad at the moment’, Bella reading Wonder.
‘I’m really enjoying bookclub because everyone gets a chance to work together’, Nathaniel reading The Last of the Spirits.
‘I really enjoy booklcub because i like to share my predictions’, Winnie reading The Twits.
‘I think bookclub is a really fun way to find out what other people think about books’, Anine reading The Magic Finger.
‘Bookclub is a good way to read a book that i never knew existed and it opens up my mind to new ideas’, Freya reading Wonder.
‘I really like bookclub because the book of choice is really interesting’, Poppy reading Alice in Wonderland.

The students in 3/4DX have enjoyed using the new Chrome Books and iPads as part of their learning. The ICT has been implemented into writing, reading, maths lessons and of course BIFF. ICT allows for an innovative and engaging approach to learning, allowing students to go beyond the norms.
We look foward to contuning to utilise ICT in the classroom and the wonderful learning opportunities it brings.

In Mathematics this week in 3/4G, groups set off with Sphero to solve differentiated measurement related tasks. Tasks were built around displaying knowledge of units of measurement, perimeter and area. Collaboration was important with lots of discussion being had between students and trial and error used to problem solve.
