Welcome to Year 4
The children have returned to school full of enthusiasm after the holidays. They have settled well into Year 4 and have had a very positive attitude to everything we have done. We look forward to all our learning opportunities this year and will try to share our experiences with you on this page. Mrs Twohey and Mrs McGurk

We had an exciting day with the music man. We learnt about sound and even got to make our own instruments.
Thank you Dr Chalfont for allowing us to carry out some tests like a GP.
We made our own aeroplanes, helicopters and gliders and tested which could fly the furthest. Which do you think would win?
We have looked at different dinosaurs and have designed our own special dinosaurs.
We found natural resources to create a habitat for our dinosaurs.
We couldn't believe what had happened when we came into school on Tuesday. We had an exciting time investigating the scene.
Year 4 took part in a skipping competition at CHCHs on Wednesday. Although we didn't win we performed well and enjoyed the event.

Year 4 have been lucky enough to have visits from both our priests. Fr Josh popped in after celebrating our class Mass and Fr Tim came to answer some of our questions on the bible.
The weather was fabulous for our outdoor activities. We started the day with problem solving and team building challenges. We had to work together and be resilient and persever in order for us to achieve. After lunch we did Orienteering, that was great fun. Den building was our last challenge. We all worked together constructing different designed shelters.
