Welcome to Term 3

 

Our teaching and learning throughout Term 3 will continue to cover literacy, numeracy, SHARE, e-learning, and specialist classes. With a special focus on students demonstrating the school value of ‘Pride’.

 

The Term 3 Inquiry unit is based on Day and Night which will be linked with our literacy program. In reading, students will cover a number of reading comprehension strategies such as; predicting, solving words, making connections, searching for information and paraphrasing/summarising. In writing, writing an explanation with the use of technical vocabulary and grammatical features. In numeracy, our focuses are; multiplication, division, location, statistics and probability. During weeks 3 and 4, the Tokyo Olympic Games will be a “focus” throughout our numeracy program which we encourage students to discuss and watch, to understand all various maths that are used in the Olympics.

 

Homework will be handed out on a Monday and your child will be expected to complete and submit their homework every Friday. If you or your child requires clarification about homework tasks, please contact us. We believe that students perform best when there is good communication between home and school. We expect that the children take responsibility for their homework.

 

Your child needs to arrive at school on time each day (8.50 am) and if your child is late to school, he/she will be required to visit the office first to sign in and receive a late pass to give to their class teacher.

 

With winter approaching it would be greatly appreciated if all families could please send along a box of tissues to school as students use these daily.

 

If at any time during the term you have a query regarding your child, please feel free to make time to see their class teacher. We are sometimes available before or after school to discuss urgent matters, otherwise please make an appointment time via XUNO.

Welcome to year 3/4 2021 at Meadow Heights Primary. We are very excited about the year ahead!

Term 2

 

Welcome to Term 2.

 

Our teaching and learning throughout Term 2 will continue to cover literacy, numeracy, SHARE, e-learning, and specialist classes. With a special focus on students demonstrating the school value of ‘Responsibility’.

Alongside this, the Term 2 Inquiry unit is based on Sustainability and the question ‘Why does Victoria have protected places?’ Our trips to two local parklands and the Royal Botanic Gardens have kickstarted our Inquiry and a visit from Katrina Watson from Parks Victoria got the students very interested in their local area.

 

Homework will be handed out on a Monday and your child will be expected to complete and submit their homework every Friday. If you or your child requires clarification about homework tasks, please contact us. We believe that students perform best when there is good communication between home and school. We expect that the children take responsibility for their homework.

Term 1

The following is a brief overview of term 1. We have lots of fantastic and engaging learning planned for our 3/4 students. We are excited to grow and learn together in 2021!

 

Our teaching and learning in term 1 will cover literacy, numeracy, share, e-learning, and specialists. With a focus on students strengthening their independence and abilities across all subject areas.

 

In week 6 we have a ‘meet the teacher’ evening. We are really looking forward to meeting you! This is a time where we can talk about how your child is settling into the classroom and discuss any issues or concerns you may have.

 

Another exciting part of term 1 in year 3/4 is the introduction of laptops into the classroom! This will provide the opportunity for students to develop and expand their capacity for e-learning and prepare them for the digital future.

 

Kind regards,

3/4 Teaching Team
