Welcome to 3/4B's class page!
Teacher: Mr Betts
3/4B have made a wondeful start to Term 3. We said goodbye to one student but have had the privledge of welcoming another.
There is nothing better as a teacher than seeing the improvement from the beginning of the year to now. The growth the students' have made inside and outside of the classroom is to commended.
Congratulations to Jorja and Austin, they did a wonderful job as our class delegates during Semester One. I'd also like to congratulate Tayja and Hayley who will be taking over the reigns as 3/4B's class delegates for Semester Two.
I would also like to make mention of some of our students' who have achieved excellent results in both the Spelling Bee and the Public Speaking Competition. Well done to Riyanka (stage runner-up) and Austin for representing us at the stage final for the Spelling Bee. I would also like to congratulate Austin and Jorja (stage champion) s at the stage final for the Public Speaking Competition. I wish Jorja all the best at the Zone Public Speaking Competition!
There will be some more photos posted shortly!
What an amazing start the year we have had so far. The students' have been working really hard and have been having fun at the same time!
3/4B are currently learning about how to 'Identify Detail' in a text. We have also learnt about 'Cause and Effect' & 'Fact & Opinion'. We are very lucky to have Mrs Zammit & Miss Grasso inside our class to help out with reading groups twice a week.
During Term 2, 3/4B studied the novel 'Charlotte's Web'. The class loved reading this text and did an amazing job with it.
So far in Term 1 the students have focused on:
- addition & subtraction
- multiplication & division
- data / graphs
We are also very lucky to have Miss Grasso and Miss C assist us with Maths Groups twice a week. The students' have also had several Mathletics tasks set for them every week. All of the tasks are based on the area they are focusing on in class that week.
I strongly urge the class to log into Mathletics on a regular basis. I will be setting tasks based on the content we are covering in class that week.
HSIE & SCIENCE
Mrs Asencio has been teaching 3/4B in Science this term. They have been focusing on different forms on communication. A reminder that the students projects are due next week, I will be at the Sydney South West Football tournament on Monday the 31st of March so their projects can be handed in on the following day.
Mrs Byrne has been teaching 3/4B HSIE this term. They have been focusing on British Colonisation. An excursion about this topic will take place in Term 2.
During Term 2 the students focused on State and National Parks (HSIE) and Cycles in Our World (Science). Mrs Asencio and Mrs Byrne have been doing a wonderful job with these units!

Stage 2 have been participating in dance / aerobics style sessions every Wednesday morning. They have been having an absolute blast (so have the teachers).
We have also been focusing on the importance of friendship and we have been revising our PBL school rules.
Peer Support was a wonderful success in Term 2. I'm sure our year 4 students can't wait to become co-leaders next year.
3/4B have been completing different art activities on Friday afternoon's. From weeks 9-11 we will be working with Mrs Norman in the studio.
Thank you to everyone that has brought in egg cartons, we have a mountain of them in our room! We will begin to paint them this Friday (21st) so they are ready for the PBL re launch next Thursday.
Don't forget that 3/4B's 3D models will be on display at the Art Exhibition on Open Day!
Please keep in touch. Look forward to speaking with you soon!
We hope you enjoy visiting our page!
