Electronic Unit of Inquiry Books

We have been inspired by the Grade 5 Exhibition central idea:

The earth is our mother and as her children we are destroying her.

So... for our next unit of inquiry we're going to save paper and not use unit of inquiry books. Instead, we're going to do everything electonically and use a Microsost Word document as an electronic unit of inquiry book.

This Year's Parties are a Disaster!

Hello kids,

All our plans are now ruined, I'm afraid.

Apparently, Grade 3 want to have a pool party and they normally have a swimming lesson on Wednesday afternoons so that means they get priority over us.

AND... we have been told that there will be a big assembly tomorrow afternoon anyway... so everyone's parties are ruined!!! Aaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Very frustrating.

Well, we can go out and play football or something, or softball. We'll do something fun.

And, it's my turn to choose someone for the Learner Profile Award - who will it be?

We're Swimming on Wednesday - Bring Your Stuff!

Most people voted to do swimming on Wednesday afternoon... so that's what we're doing. The pool is booked from 1pm - 2:30. We'll have races, play waterpolo, play games and stuff like that, OK?

Class Party

Next week is the last week of school. I'm going to give you two choices about what we do to celebrate and to say goodbye for a few weeks.

Choice One: Everybody brings in their favourite dish - no junk food - and we have a banquet in the classroom. We will all dress up in suits, saris or other very smart clothes, and we'll enjoy our feast!

Choice Two: I will book the swimming pool for the afternoon and we'll just muck about in the pool, play games and relax.

So, it's up to you... make a comment to say what you want to do.

The New 4S - Class of 2006-2007

So... it's the start of a new year. New faces, new personalities, new ideas! One thing is the same though, and that is the "philosophy" of 4S.

We are here to become CONFIDENT learners who are not afraid to take risks, to make mistakes, to be creative and to push limits and boundaries in order to progress. We have a strong sense of what is right and wrong, and we make INFORMED CHOICES about the way we behave.

This is a very important year for the students of 4S... getting ready for the challenges of Grade 5. They will do a lot of growing up! They will build upon and develop their communication skills. They will strengthen their mathematical skills and look increasingly at the world from a mathematical perspective. They will become comfortable with expressing themselves through the arts. And... perhaps most importantly, they will become responsible citizens of our world.
