Term 2 News!

 

It has been a very busy term in Years 3 and 4! Grade 3 have spent the first part of term 2 preparing for NAPLAN – it is very exciting to announce that NAPLAN is over and our children performed brilliantly. The writing task this year was persuasive writing and our children were able to write anything they wanted! Some persuaded us whether, ‘dogs were better than cats,’ ‘healthy food was better than junk food,’ and lots of other topics! We are so proud of all our Grade 3’s for being so well behaved and focussed during their week of testing. On Friday to celebrate we had a ‘Friday Fun day,’ where the children were involved in Sport, ICT, Craft, Literacy and Cooking lessons to celebrate a successful NAPLAN week!

 

 

Grade 4 have been busy earning their karate belts during their ‘times table challenges,’ where children are working hard to learn their times tables, there is a fantastic competitive buzz around Grade 4 Friday mornings. Grade 4 have just completed a narrative unit and will move on to information reports next week! We can’t wait to see the amazing reports they produce.


A Warm Welcome!


Welcome to term one, 2017! We are so excited to have you in Grade 3/4 with us this year!


This year we welcome Miss Hillard to Grade 3 and Miss Clugg to Grade 4 at Dandenong North Primary School! We also welcome back Miss Wiltgren to Grade 3 after two years exploring the UK and Miss McNab to Grade 4 all the way from Grade 2!


This term the Grade 3/4 students will be involved in learning about our theme One Country Many Faces where they will explore our place within Australia, and Australia's place within the world. This unit of work aims to inform students about Australia's modern day multicultural society.


As the temperature continues to rise, students must wear their hats during recess and lunch time as we are a sun smart school!


Students are also reminded to return their Camps, Sport and Excursion Fund (CSEF) forms as soon as possible to receive financial assistance that will help them to pay for excursions later on in the year. Check with your child’s teacher to see if this applies to you. Students are also encouraged to make their final Booklist payments as soon as possible if this hasn't already been done.


We are looking forward to an exciting and successful 2017, full of learning and fun!
