As we continue to learn about our marine ecosystem, we are exploring how the health of our oceans and waterways is affected by human activity and use of resources.
Did you know that our households use 66,000 tonnes of plastic every year?! A shocking fact that we learnt by viewing sections of War on Waste.
We are now investigating the waste we are generating at school. We are conducting our own waste audit in each building, by emptying the contents of the rubbish bins; tallying the amount of recyclable objects (eg. drink bottles/cups), food scraps, paper and cardboard, stationary and plastic; then graphing the results.
What were the results of your waste audit?
What did you find most surprising, interesting or shocking?
How can we help to reduce the amount of waste, particularly plastic waste, at school?
The Online Learning Logs (OLLs) are a digital platform for students, parents and teachers to report and celebrate student learning.
The SMCM Online Learning Logs (OLLs) Parent Help Website contains useful information about the OLLs. It also allows you to provide us with a current/updated Google email address OR to report any technical difficulties you are experiencing with accessing your child’s OLL.
You can access this website by:

This week in Year 4, we have been investigating our Digital Technologies Policy. We have been learning about the different parts of this policy, unpacking the key words, including unknown words like ‘copyright’ and ‘ethics’. We discussed what our expectations are when we are using our technology to help us with our learning.
We will all receive a copy of the policy and agreement. Once we have read and talked about this with our family, we need to tick the boxes and sign our name. This shows that we understand and agree to follow the expectations.
What is one understanding that you have about our policy?
Why is it important that we understand our policy?
