Welcome to Term 4 everybody! This term our topic will be Space.
We have started this term by reading The Darkest Dark by Chris Hadfield. We have enjoyed learning a little bit about Chris and watching some of his videos filmed in Space.
Welcome back Orcas and a very happy New Year to you all. We hope you had a fantastic Christmas and enjoyed spending time with your family. Thank you very much for all of our presents. We appreciated them all!
This term we will be learning all about Fairy Tales.
We have started the Term reading The Gingerbread Man and we have had lots of fun so far. In English we have been learning the story, adapting the ending of the story and making maps of the route the Gingerbread Man ran. We loved baking our own Gingerbread Men and were so surprised on Thursday to discover that they had been hidden by a real Gingerbread man who had visited the class (see video below). We were very quick to make lost posters, write letters to other people around the school in attempt to help find and return out Gingerbread Men. Luckily, we were able to find and return them back to our classroom.

Jesus Chose Disciples
We enjoyed acting out the story of Jesus choosing His disciples James, John, Peter and Andrew. We read the story of how the fishermen had been fishing all day with no joy of catching fish. When Jesus asked them to fish once again, they did and there were so many fish that they had to call for help to lift the nets out of the water. We reflected on being followers of Jesus and how we can share our love for Him with others.
Fun in Maths
This term we have been busy in Maths with lots of measuring and time. We have also been working on our numbers and counting.
