We have been learning about inferencing in 4M, and we have discovered that a good way to practise our inferencing skills is to use comics.

Look at this Garfield comic…

Why do you think it’s funny and what’s the clue?


Inquiry Homework

For homework, you need to do the following:

  • Complete an experiment that demonstrates how your natural disaster works. This experiment is to be completed at school during our expo.  BUT if it is too messy, you can film it and show this instead.
  • Make a 3D model of your natural disaster (Yes, this can be part of your experiment, but it won’t always be like that, it depends what you are doing).
  • Write an explanation explaining how your experiment relates to your natural disaster.  Use the format:
    • Cause
    • Process
    • Effect




We have had such a busy day in 4M today!  PHEW! We are tired and ready for the weekend.

Our last lesson for the day was about Debugging.

Look confusing? It’s not really!

Can you explain debugging below?


Just One Day

On Monday the 22nd May, the Just One Day team came to our school to educate us about poverty in the world.

We learnt that education is the key to breaking the poverty cycle.

What is one fact that you learnt?

Zone of Confusion

We have been learning about 3D shapes.

Today we were given this problem from a past NAPLAN test.

It had us so confused!

We are interested to hear how you would figure out the answer and PROVE IT!


Unplugged Coding

We have been learning about programming computers, but did you know that you don’t need a computer to learn coding?

On Friday, we wrote directions using symbols to instruct our partner on how to draw a picture.

It was complicated to begin with, but we got there in the end.  We can’t wait to do some more!

Share with us your coding experiences in the classroom – what are some activities that you do?


Descriptive Writing in 4M

Mr Twit is a disgusting, ugly old man. He is as dirty as a pig, smelly as a skunk. Mr Twit’s beard smells so bad, that people’s noses fall off when they are near him.

Mr Twit can’t even go to a restaurant, that’s how ugly and disgusting he is. He horrifies all the children in the town.


Guide Dogs

As part of Inquiry this term, we have been learning about services to the community.  Guide Dogs Victoria provide a very important service to the community, as we learnt about yesterday.

What did you learn about the importance of Guide Dogs?
