Grade 3/4




Term 4

It's hard to believe that we are about to embark on our final term of 2017. Term 4 will be extremely busy with lots of valuable learning experiences and some celebrations to end our year in Grade 3/4. Our students will be investigating 'Who are the Indigenous Australians and where do they come from?" as the focus for our inquiry. Something we have been looking forward to for most of the year is the MHPS 25 Year Celebration Carnival. This will take place in November and we know all the students and staff are very excited. As the term progresses we will continue to add to the student portfolios which will show the significant growth that the students have made throughout the year.


Term 3

Hopefully everyone had a relaxing break and is ready for a new term. We have lots of learning to do which will involve some wonderful experiences both in and out of the school. Our inquiry this term will be 'How Does the Earth Work'....a very interactive topic for our students. We are looking forward to a busy and productive term 3.

Term 2

Welcome back to Term 2. Hopefully everyone had a relaxing break. We have a busy 11 weeks coming up with lots of valuable learning experiences coming our way. To start us off the Grade 3/4's will be undertaking an inquiry on What Makes Melbourne Unique? This is a great opportunity for students to learn more about our wonderful city and we will even get to visit some of Melbourne's landmarks. Stay tuned for some photo's of our excursion to Eureka Tower and the Melbourne Museum which will take place in week 5. Early in Term 2 the students will be participating in a Cyber Safety incursion which will consolidate their understanding of being safe in the cyber world. The children are also very excited to be participating in a footy clinic as part of their Physical Education session as well as having the opportunity to take part in the Victorian Premiers Reading Challenge. Please note down the important dates for incursions / excursions on your calendar and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask your child's teacher. Looking forward to a term of great experiences!

Welcome back to Term 1!

It's wonderful to see all the students back at school for another fun filled year of learning experiences. In Term 1 the Grade 3/4 classes will all be participating in our Start Up program which focuses on getting to know each other, our classroom and school expectations and our school values of equality, excellence and respect. The students will be engaging in experiences that will build on their skills to be independent and responsible learners. We look forward to keeping you updated throughout the year.
