Welcome to the 2014 school year. This year will be a very busy year and I’m sure throughout the year we will have lots of fun and complete some amazing pieces of work.

This year we are lucky enough to have Mr Connelly and Miss Hoskin in our grade working with us.

We will be working hard on improving our descriptive writing, reading and maths skills as well as completing science experiments, inquiring into a range of different topics and learning about events that have happened throughout history.

We will use our blog to read information, follow links, look at interesting pictures and videos, share our amazing work and post our different ideas and thinking.

During term 1, our unit will begin an inquiry project into using social media appropriately. This inquiry will involve us making some videos, which we will download to Youtube and send to one of the local television stations.

We will have weekly homework throughout the year, which will be posted on the blog on a Sunday and due the following Friday. Each grade will be doing the same homework.

There will also be a camp during term 4. Our unit will be heading off to Coonawarra for 3 nights. There will be more information about this camp later in term 1.

It is important that throughout the year everyone respects each other and tries their best at everything and make sure you ask questions if you are unsure about anything.

Mr Andrew
