Welcome back for Term 4, a term that is looking action packed with lots of opportunities for learning and fun! I hope all families have managed to have a break and Room 14 children are ready to go again for Term 4.
Term 4 At A Glance
Written Language – Narrative and Poetry - Structure, descriptive and figurative language and general grammar and sentence structure
Children will begin practising the different athletic events that will take place from Week 1 of the term. They will rotate around each activity in the first 4 weeks of the term to ensure they are exposed to each event, before our Athletics Day.
Please ensure your child has appropriate clothing to take part in these activities.
This year our Year 5 and 6 Athletics will be held at school on Thursday, 12th November. More information will come early in Term 4 regarding timing of the day with a request to help out on the day.
Those children who make it into the Interschool team will compete on Wednesday, 2nd December at Porritt Stadium.
Swimming will begin in the later part of Term 4, weather dependent. Further information will come home as we get closer to summer.
Please ensure that all stationery requirements are at school. It is expected that students have the required stationery at school every day and if certain items run out, break or go missing, students must organise to have these replaced as soon as possible.
Homework is given out fortnightly, with the priority tasks being reading and learning of basic facts at your child's level. Homework sheets are given out on the odd week.
