Welcome to Year 4 with Mrs Haley Branch, Mrs Kellie Hall and Mrs Danielle Power.
Our aim is to inspire and empower each other to create a better world.
Fruit Break and Water
Year 4 are encouraged to bring some fresh fruit or vegetables and a bottle of water into class each morning. Students will have an opportunity to munch on fruit or vegetables mid-morning.
We are transitioning to waste-free bin areas. Students are encouraged to bring in lunch boxes that cater to this change. Recyclable materials will be placed in the recycle bin and there will be access to dispose of green waste. All other materials will be placed back in students lunchboxes to be disposed of at home.
Computers and Devices
The BYOT policy can be viewed on Explain SCAS. Year 4 have access to devices provided in class. However, Year 4 also have the option of bringing in their own device. In Year 4 students undertake lessons in caring for technology, staying safe online and using the Google Suite as tools for learning.
Year 4 Camp
This year, Year 4 will be attending the Great Aussie Bush Camp!
When: Monday, 8 March to Wednesday, 10 March 2021*
Where: Great Aussie Bush Camp, Kincumber
*Parents may opt to have their children start Thursday at 11:30am to allow additional rest before returning to school.
Please read our blog on preparing your child for school camp.
Year 4 students have French with Mrs Moore, Visual Arts with Mrs Catlin, Music with Mrs Finnecy, Christian studies with Mrs Egra and Performing Arts Hour with Mrs Mistry and her team.
The homework program is encouraged for Kindergarten to Year 5 and compulsory for Year 6. Appropriate tasks will be set by teachers and feedback provided. Parents electing for their child not to complete the tasks are asked to ensure that discussions have occurred with the teacher. Reading every night for enjoyment is considered a priority for all our students to develop successful readers who love literature.
We look forward to a fabulous year working with your children.
