Term 3


This Term, students will be learning about our theme, ‘Democracy Rules’. They will be beginning to understand more about the government and how Australia is run. We will be closely exploring how the local government influences and maintains our community in Dandenong and neighbouring suburbs.

Footsteps has returned to DNPS for another year and students have already enjoyed learning some new dance styles. Students will be learning a new dance every Thursday for 5 weeks. We look forward to seeing our students becoming more active and having fun in this program.

Last term’s Timetables Competition was another success, with students competing in teams every Friday. Congratulations to the winning team, the ‘Mathematical Demons’. The Timetables Competition will continue this term with new teams and students are encouraged to continue to revise their timetables knowledge.

A reminder that students in Grade 4 are encouraged to read every night and to record this in their green reading journals.

We all look forward to a very productive term for Year 4!



Term 2

This Term the Year 4 students will be investigating the theme ‘Forces in Motion’.  They will be discovering different examples of forces and be learning about Newtons Laws of Motion.  Students will also be participating in an exciting incursion ‘Phizzics Workshop’.


Last term the Year 4 students were competing in a Timetables competition.  Students formed teams and competed on a Friday. Congratulations to the winning team, the ‘Mathematical Wizards’ last term.  The competition will continue in Term 2 and it is encouraged that students continue to revise their timetables to increase their number knowledge.


We hope students are continuing to complete their nightly reading and completing their reading journals.


Later in the term, reports will go home and Parent/Teacher interviews will take place. It should be a very exciting Term for Year 4!




Welcome Back to Term 1


Year 4 students have had a great start to the year. They are settled, ready to learn and have a big year ahead! 


We have welcomed two new teachers to the Year 4 team, Miss Lai in 4L and Mr Hickey in 4H. Our new teachers have been warmly welcomed by all year 4 students.


Throughout this term, students have been involved in our theme ‘One Country, Many Faces’. This theme is focused on Australia’s multicultural society, the acceptance of everyone and understanding and valuing other students’ backgrounds, traditions and cultures.


We are looking forward to our whole school celebration of Harmony Day. Year 4 students will participate in a rotation of interesting learning tasks surrounding the meaning of Harmony Day.


In Year 4 we encourage nightly reading and ask students to fill out their green reading journal.


We look forward to a fantastic year!
