SubhanAllah we are nearly at the finish line. It’s amazing how fast the year has passed but then again time flies when you’re having fun! The year 4’s have already learnt so much this year and have continued to do so in term 4.
At the end of term 3, we were fortunate enough to be able to go on an excursion to Fremantle Prison. The students went on a tour and saw some of the prison cells of convicts that we had previously learnt about in class. Students were able to have the opportunity to experience what it was like for the convicts many years ago and witness their contributions to society. It was great to be able to see the things we had learnt about in real life! We learnt so much and had an enjoyable day.
This term in HASS the year 4’s have been learning all about the 3 R’s of sustainability and what it means to live sustainably. By reducing, reusing and recycling we are able to prevent waste and conserve natural resources. After watching the documentary “Brave Blue World” we have found that if we don’t change our way of life, many people won’t have access to clean drinking water in the future. In saying that, there are also a lot of individuals trying to make a difference for their community by inventing new technology. Who knows, maybe one of our very own students will bring about change within our own community.
As part of the Science curriculum this term, students learnt about different types of materials and their properties. Using this knowledge, they were then required to design and construct their own patchwork bag for STEM. Students had to keep in mind the type of bag they planned on creating and its purpose and therefore find suitable materials. MashaAllah, the creations that the students came up with were just outstanding!
As the year comes to a close, we can’t help but feel bittersweet. We’re so proud of how far the year 4’s have come this year but are sad about having to let them go. We’ve made some great memories and hope that the students will cherish them. We wish them the best of luck as they go on to year 5 and continue to learn and grow as individuals.
