Years 3/4 team updates

Years 3/4 students with sock puppets

From the Team Leader

Dear Families,

What a wonderful year we have had in 3/4 so far! Our camp to Birrigai last term was an absolute highlight for students and teachers, giving us all the chance to strengthen our relationships. Our time away at camp was a great opportunity to practise our learning asset focus areas of self-management, communication and collaboration. We are continuing to focus on these areas in term 3 and we will also begin to develop ourselves as critical, creative and reflective thinkers as we tackle new learning.

All children in year 3/4 have weekly sport sessions. These sessions are an opportunity to build specific sports skills and fundamental movement skills, with each child choosing a sport that interests them. This term, all 3/4 children have a focus on building their ability to communicate and collaborate effectively during sporting games; sportsmanship, SCARFF values and winning/losing graciously are the primary focus of these sessions. Each child in 3/4 has chosen a sport that interests them from the following options: Volleyball, T-Ball, Yulunga (traditional Indigenous games), Cooperative games, Fitness Rotations and AFL.

There are 8 classes in the 3/4 team. They are:

  • Kristina Charman - 3/4 Magic Carpets
  • Leonie Straiton - 3/4 Jumbucks
  • Eddie Jenkins - 4 Gizmos
  • Alex Lilly - 3/4 Our Place
  • Iesha Siotis - Unstoppable Pelicans
  • Hana Kramer (M-TH) and Roger Rosser (F) - Moon Bears
  • Michael McDougall, Jess Engele and Heather Walker – Jazz Musicians
    (the Jazz Musicians are our co-located small class and are supported by our learning support assistants Jayne McDonald, Helen Misa and Rachel Price)

Thank you for all you do to support us and your child at our school! We greatly value parent volunteers and expertise in our classrooms. Please speak to your child’s teacher if you are interested in volunteering your time.

If you have any questions about our 3/4 classrooms or would like to chat, please don’t hesitate to contact me at the school on 6205 6622.

Warmest regards,

Iesha Siotis
3/4 Team leader (Acting)
