As many of you have probably already heard... Muritai School is having an ART AUCTION!! Each class is creating one or two collaborative art pieces for the auction (which is happening on DEC. 2nd). All of the money raised will be donated to a school in Cambodia. We are so happy to be taking part in such a great event for a fantastic cause!!

Here are a few photos for a sneak preview of room four's art pieces... Mrs Naik could only take a few photos because she was soon covered in PAINT!!


As part of our inquiry on SUN SAFETY we had a close look at our SHADOWS. We found out that when our body blocks the sun it creates a shadow. We had a great time making interesting shadow shapes!

Then we traced our buddy's shadow with chalk. We had a big laugh at the funny outlines that emerged!


For Inquiry this term we have been learning about SUN SAFETY! Today we went on a walk in the playground in search of some SHADY areas where we can go if we get TOO hot!!

Welcome Back!

We have had a great start to Term 4! I hope you have all had a restful holiday to get ready for the busy term ahead! Just a few reminders:

All children should have sunhats at school this week.

Please ensure your child had a drink bottle at school, filled with WATER for those HOT summer days!

We will be practicing for Cross country on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays so please make sure your child is wearing suitable running shoes.

We also have an EXCITING art project in the making so keep checking our blog to find out more about what we are doing!
