Welcome to 4A

We have had a busy and wonderful start to the new school year! We’ve been so busy that this is my very first post for 2017.

The Year began with our ‘Positive Start Program’, setting up our routines, exploring new goals, developing our learning behaviours, investigating our anti-bullying policies and more.

A big part of our year in 4A will be using our iPads and creating a responsible and positive digital footprint.

We are proud of our classroom and thinks it will make a great learning space for us for the year ahead. Take a look through the photos below and you will some of the work we have on display already.

Fish Tank Ecosystem

What is an Ecosystem?

The e school today website says,

“An ecosystem includes all of the living things (plants, animals and organisms) in a given area, interacting with each other, and also with their non-living environments (weather, earth, sun, soil, climate, atmosphere).”

Is our fish tank in our classroom an ecosystem? What do you think?

Visit the e school today website and decide – yes or no?
