Welcome to the 2015 school year. This year promises to be a very busy year in the 3/4A classroom with lots of learning to take place. During class we will focus on writing, reading, word work, maths, science, inquiry topics as well as using ICT tools and studying special days and events. Outside our classroom all students will participate in Physical Education, Art, ICT and Library sessions once a week.

During term 1 we have lots planned, including a swimming carnival this coming Monday, swimming lessons for two weeks, athletics sports and the middle unit camp during the second last week of the term.

Homework will be given out weekly and all students will be expected to complete their homework along with three nights reading each week. Your home reading will be recorded in your student diaries, which can also be used for some parent/teacher communication.

Our grade will also regularly use our class blog. Many pieces of information, images, videos, work samples, tasks and homework will shared on this blog. All students will regularly post detailed comments to the blog and all comments need to be thoroughly read and checked before you press the post button. All students need to make sure their writing makes sense and their spelling is correct.

Today you will complete your first comment underneath this post. You will each introduce your self, write down your strengths at school and at least one thing that you are looking forward to this year.
