A Message from The Sustainable Club…

The Sustainable Club has been created by some of the Year 3 students and everyone is welcome to join! We meet every Monday and Friday at 2nd Break to look after our environment and spread the message about being responsible with our waste.

What things do you do to help look after our environment?

Is there anything you would like us to focus on in The Sustainable Club?

Year Fours Dance for Carols event

Dear Year Four students,

Your two classes are learning a dance for the community carols event. Carols this year will be on Thursday evening the 13th December, see the newsletter for more information. Your dance will be the song ‘Need a Little Christmas’

Practise your dance at home by using the recording I have below. You can also practise with your home group teacher any chance you have, so you are very prepared.

Enjoy this dance! It is definitely fun and has a bit of a Broadway theme. Jess.

Afternoon Year Three’s,

Whether you practise with your teachers or at home remember to use ‘air’ instruments to help remember your part. Lots of practise before our event on Thursday the 13th of December.

How Can We Reduce Waste At Our School?

We are working towards achieving our third Resourcesmart Star for reducing Waste at our school. We performed a Waste Audit in order to learn about how much waste we produce at our school.

We found that our main waste stream is food wrappers and banana peels.

Out of six binwe emptied, there 170 food wrappers and 58 banana peels!

What can you do to reduce waste at our school?

What happens to this waste that we put in our bins?

Share your ideas here and let’s work together to be Sustainable!

Scientific Exploring

This term we have begun our scientific exploring by following procedures to conduct experiments. We have been discussing the need to follow a procedure, why a scientist would do a particular experiment, the importance of reflecting on the outcome and possible factors that may change the results, like the weather, and enjoying having fun with our learning!

Reflecting over your investigations so far, we wonder…

  • What methods and procedures need to be followed to conduct scientific investigations?
  • What did you enjoy and why?
  • Were your hypothesis accurate? Why/Why not?
  • How and why do materials and matter change?
  • What did you learn from conducting experiments?
  • What would you like to test further?
  • How do scientific understandings, discoveries and inventions affect people’s lives?
