Welcome back to Term Four!

Can you believe how quickly this year is going? Already down to our last term in Grade 4.

This term there will be lots of exciting things happening in the Grade 4 unit as we start our project action groups, the swimming carnival, excursions, transition into Grade 5/6 and much more!


Watch this space for updates on how everyone is settling back into the school routine and getting down to work!

Maja’s provocation

Why did you want to make a provocation? When I did other provocations I got lots of ideas and I did this exact one because I enjoy dancing and miming and I know that other people enjoy it.

How will your provocation help others? I think it will help people by not be shy and they will become better at school performances.

Check out my provocation below.


The art centre by Finlay

Big pictures are pouring into the Art centre.They have pictures of galaxies, boats and much more. Entry costs $5:00 per Person. Offer ends July15th be quick and don’t forget to bring your Kids. You’ll enjoy it and so will your Kids (if you have Kids).

I am proud of this work because I think it’s persuasive and I think the pictures are cool and artistic.

If I did this again I would change the sign because it should say art gallery instead of centre.

Coral Reef


There are hundreds of different kinds of coral. Hard coral or stony coral is the kind of coral that builds reefs. These corals have hard outer skeletons. Other corals do not have hard outer skeletons and look like fans or flowers. Some kinds of coral look like the branches of a tree. Other kinds can sting you if you touch them.

The Beatles

The Beatles were a rock music sensation in the 1960s and 1970s. Everyone had a favorite among the four. For some people, it was Paul McCartney, the sweet one, or John Lennon, the funny one. For others, it was George Harrison, the mystery man, or Ringo Starr, the bouncy drummer. The Beatles changed popular music for all time, with their songs and their sparkling personalities.

Guitar Lessons

If you are keen to learn how to play guitar, write an expression of interest to Mr Lyon on this blog. At the very least, you must own a 3/4 sized acoustic guitar. If you have an electric guitar, this will also suffice. The lessons will be Tuesday lunchtimes, second half (1:30-1:55) starting next term. 5 places available only!
