Swimming begins next week Monday 20th. 34B is going swimming with 34A, first thing in the morning.
We will be leaving at 9:05 sharp (PLEASE BE ON TIME!), lesson begins at 9:20, we finish swimming at 10:00 and leave the pool to return to school by 10:30.
See below for a copy of the Parent Swimming Note with all the information you'll need.
Finally, our class will be partnering with 34C to hold a Movember stall next Friday the 24th at lunch time.
As you may have noticed, Lewis and Simon have hairy upper lips at the moment to fundraise for Movember. Our classes are super keen and excited to participate in the fundraising, and will be making foods and other knick knacks (with your help) to sell at the stall to raise money.
If you feel like donating directly to Lewis or Simon, please see the link below.
Our Sci Fi narratives are nearly done.
We are creating audio versions of them (complete with SFX) and they'll be available to listen on our blog. Stay tuned!

Don't forget to come down to the school this Sat for the Make.Noise festival. There's much to see, do, hear and engage with. Check out the 3/4 band at 5:30!
Science Week Incursion
Don't confuse our Scienceworks excursion (next Monday the 30th) with the Science Week Incursion.
Here's the note if you want more info.
In Italian, our class has been writing postcards to Italian students at another school, Seaview PS. They are written in Italian, of course.
Check them out via the CNPS Italiano blog http://cnpsitaliano.weebly.com/questa-settimana
Scienceworks excursion next Monday 30th October. Be at school early to leave at 9am!
Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th (Melb Cup) are student free days. Enjoy the longer weekend.
Swimming begins in week 7/ 8. Times for our class to be confirmed.
We are getting to be pretty good at coding (if we say so ourselves).
Over the course of the year, we've created a few games and explored creating games via a few different websites and programs (code.org AND madewithcode.com AND scratch.mit.edu).
Ask us for a demo.

As we are writing Sci-Fi narratives this term, it makes sense for us to have a spelling list of words to use in our writing. These words have been pulled from sizzling sci fi starts that we have been writing each session.
experiment clone humanoid teleport invasion technology laboratory
scientific android earthlings futuristic mutant intergalactic
Homework: find the meanings of all words, however write definitions and sentences of only six of them.
Due next Wednesday 18th October.
Here's a photo from the last day of Term 3, us in our footy colours.
Now to Term 4 news.
The Year 4s will be participating in Bike Ed on Friday mornings, while the Year 3s will be doing something sports related. Year 4 parents - please be sure to return the Bike Ed notes, if you haven't already.
This month is Walk to School month, so all are encouraged to Walk or Ride at every opportunity.
Term 4 is a sun-smart term, so we need to make sure we have our hats at all times. Not hat, no play, especially as the sun starts cooking.
We have an excursion to Scienceworks planned for the end of the month. Stay tuned, as notes will be coming home any day now.
Swimming this term will be in weeks 7 and 8, beginning Monday 20th November. Notes will arrive in due course.
Finally, here is our timetable for the term, correct at the moment.
A reminder to families to return your Student Led Conference bookings asap, as they are happening next Tuesday 19th September.
Please ask for a note if you still need to book.
Looking forward to celebrating our learning successes this year!
It's already near the end of Term 3!
And what an eventful term it has been.
We have written poetry books, discussion texts (about whether teachers should wear school uniforms) and are now writing biographies of a peer. As you know, we have lead eventful lives in our nine or ten years...
In Math we have worked on strategies to recall multiplication and division facts, which is helping us to solve area and fraction problems.
We're into exploring Australia's pre-colonial history in Integrated, looking at life for our Indigenous elders before and at the time of settlement. For the rest of term, we are working on completing a portfolio of activities that demonstrate our understanding of significant people and events during this time.
These past two weeks have been pretty cool because we have had incursions.
The PLANKS incursion as part of Maths was awesome! We built structures with blocks, using what we know about geometry and shape to create a unique structure.
This week we have our Literacy incursion and our Integrated incursions too.
Parents, don't forget that Tuesday 19th of September is the night of our student lead conferences. Please book a time to come and view your child's Weebly and other work they are proud of.
