Big write -Talk Homework

Hi all

As we have been researching, studying and learning about first contact with the aboriginal people and the first white settlers our Big Write will be a narrative focusing on the thoughts, feeling and interactions between both of these cultures.

We have discussed this class and if you can have a chat to your child and possibly think of a few descriptive words and a short plan that would be most helpful.

Cheers

Talk Homework – Terrifying, Traumatic, Tragic Tribal Day!

Hi all

If you have some time this evening have a talk to your child about last weeks Tribal Day excursion. The children in 4E will be writing a newspaper report tomorrow and sharing your knowledge and ideas would be greatly appreciated.

We have discussed in class the features of Newspapers and I have given a planning sheet to help them think about what they need to include in their report. 4E had very lively discussion today about all the potential dangers and hazards that could have happened during our time at Balcombe Estuary (some real ones too). These of course can be included in their newspaper report. As we all know you can’t always believe what you read in the newspaper!

Looking forward to seeing some sensational reports during our writing session tomorrow.

Have a great evening!

Talk Homework – Big Write

Hi all

This week 4E have been discussing and investigating how descriptive writing provides the reader with a visual interpretation of what they have read. Tomorrow (Wednesday) the children when be doing a descriptive writing piece about a character or person that they met on the holidays.

Could you please talk about this character and help them with using adjectives to describe that person, where they met them and how they felt when they first saw them.

Happy Talking!

Tribal Day this Thursday

Hi all

It was great to see your children’s happy smiling faces this morning. Everyone looked refreshed and ready for the the term ahead.

Just a reminder about Tribal Day this Thursday. I will need parent helpers to accompany and help supervise children. If you are able to assist please let me know ASAP. We will be heading to Balcombe Estuary at 9am and returning to school by 1pm. Please ensure your child brings a snack and a drink in a small back pack. They will also need to wear a water proof jacket in case it rains.

It should be a very informative and thought provoking morning.

Also a permission not was sent home today requiring you signature so that your child can view the DVD ‘My Place’ which has a PG rating. It would be great if we can view the first episode of this series on Wednesday afternoon.

Changes to 4E’s Specialist Timetable for this semester are listed on our blog.
