Ace-Hi Ranch

On Wednesday the 4th of May, 70 excited Year 4 students carried their pillows and sleeping bags and boarded the bus for their first ever stay – away camp! The buses were filled with nervous laughter as the students made their way along the Mornington Peninsula to the fun-filled horse riding camp – Ace-Hi Ranch!

Students participated in a range of activities designed to develop confidence, team work and a sense of adventure! The giant swing, flying fox and rock climbing wall were just some of the highlights of the fun 3-day camp.

The students also had fun learning how to ride a horse and how to shoot a bow and arrow. It was fantastic to see the students working as a team to make their way through the very tricky obstacle course! Lots of giggling and laughter could be heard in the air as the children tried to swing across the ‘lake of alligators.’

By the end of our three day camp, new friendships were formed, fears were faced (and beaten!) and lots of tired yet happy campers returned home with new found confidence. Congratulations to all the Year 4 campers for their amazing behaviour, manners and attitude!

Egg-cellent Egg Expo

On Thursday 24th of March, the Year Four students celebrated the last day of Term 1 with an ‘Egg-cellent Egg Expo!’ Students were asked to create their own egg character and complete a character profile. We were AMAZED at the creativity and imagination of all of our students!

 Students were given time to walk through each classroom and provide positive feedback to their peers, after having observed all the wonderful egg characters.

 Well done to all our students for demonstrating the value of respect during the Egg Expo and a big thank you to all the parents who came along to the event!

Science Experiment – Solar Ovens

Throughout Term 1, the Year Four students have been learning how to work responsibly in collaborative groups. This has involved students working in small groups of three or four, and each person taking on a specific role to help their group achieve a common goal.

Students demonstrated their skills during a science experiment related to solar energy. Students worked within their collaborative groups to create a solar oven using a cardboard box and tin foil. The students had to follow a given set of instructions and work together to create the oven and make a delicious chocolate – marshmallow treat.

The photos below demonstrate the wonderful team work skills students developed throughout the activity – and the amazing fun they had!

Greenvale GreenGrocers

On Friday 20th November the Year 4 students participated in the exciting Greenvale Green Grocers market day! Students prepared, planted, picked and washed a variety of organic veggies to sell to their families. Below are just some of the yummy veggies we had to offer!

Each student wrote a persuasive letter to their families, convincing them to come and support our school community. They prepared colourful posters and catchy slogans and phrases, which they shared all afternoon. A huge thank you to all the families who came to support our wonderful Greenvale Green Grocers!

Veggie Garden

This term the Year 4 students are very busy integrating their Economics unit of study with their reading and writing program in the classroom.

The students worked hard to prepare soil and plant a variety of vegetables and herbs in their very own veggie garden! Students take turns watering and pruning the wonderful variety of produce and will eventually pick, prepare and sell to the local community!

To convince families to purchase from our organic veggie garden, the students are busy creating catchy slogans, jingles, television advertisements and persuasive texts! They will also practise their mathematical thinking skills when they create a budget and calculate profit after the sale of all the yummy veggies!

Keep an eye on this space!
