This week in Reading we are excited to get back into listening to James and the Giant Peach. We are continuing to learn about the different text structures involved in nonfiction texts. We are working hard to make connections to our Inquiry and Writing units.
In Writing, we have been working on the different elements of information reports. We have been looking at different celebrities and breaking down their biographies. These include people like Ash Barty and Ahn Doh.
In Maths, we have been working really well learning the new routines of rotations and we continue to work on our individual goals.
Our Year 3/4 teachers for 2022 are:
Year 3/4A: Randa Assaad
Randa began teaching Prep at St. Mary's in Term 4 in 2020. She taught Year 3/4 in 2021 and is very much looking forward to teaching the wonderful Year 3/4s again this year.
Year 3/4B: Nicole Barnes
Nicole began her teaching career with us in 2020 in Year 3/4 and will continue in that role this year. She is excited about teaching Year 3/4 again this year.
Year 3/4S: Lisa Said
Lisa has worked at St. Mary's for a number of years in a number of roles. She is very experienced in all year levels and the Year 3/4s will reap the benefits of her knowledge and experience once again this year.
Our Year 3/4s will be supported in their learning by Rowena Talbot. Rowena has been on staff for many years and has taught across a variety of year levels. Learning Support Officers Nicole Singleton, Milly Siebring and Marg Jones will also work across all three classes.
