Welcome to 3/4D!

 This semester in 3/4D, we have enjoyed learning and exploring lots of new content. In Science, we are exploring light, heat and electrical energy and how contact forces affect the behaviour of objects. Students have investigated the relationship between energy and forces that affects the behaviour of objects.

In History, 3/4D are examining the identify of the original inhabitants of Australia and create a timeline indicating their longevity in Australia of more than 50,000 years. We have discussed and explored the effects that British colonisation has had on Australia.

In English, 3/4D are writing imaginative and persuasive texts using quality texts. During reading groups, we have continued to effectively use reciprocal reading to analyse and comprehend a range of texts with increasing difficulty.  

In mathematics, 3/4D have activated prior knowledge through the use of Number Talks. In our number talks, we solve and discuss methods to solve worded mathematical problems. Throughout our explicit lessons we use hands on materials to learn and explore about fractions and decimals, area, time, chance and probability, multiplication and division as well as addition and subtraction.

We have been fortunate enough to participate in our sports in schools AFL program. We have learnt how to kick and handpass the football through a range of drills and games.

To keep updated on what’s happening in 3/4D, please check Seesaw regularly.
