Three groups in 4LW made posters of Text-to-Self, Text-to-Text and Text-to-World. Text-to-Self means to connect a piece of text to your life. Text-to-Text means to connect a piece of text to another text. Text-to-World means to connect a piece of text to something you haven’t experienced before but you know it’s out there somewhere in the world.
The first group made the Text-to-Self poster. First they thought of ideas and made a rough copy. While they were doing this the next group made the Text-to-Text poster. First they wrote all their ideas to form a rough copy. Finally the last group made the Text-to-World poster. First they did a plan for their good copy.
Each group then put all the ideas together and wrote it down on their good copy paper and made their good copy.
Next each group’s rough draft was rotated through each group so each group would be able to add to the rough draft and add things that the other groups may have forgotten.
That’s how we made all our posters I hope you enjoyed reading.

The 3/4 students have all had a great start to the year. We have got to know each other at the start of the year and are now working hard, especially in maths and planning our imaginative narratives. We are looking forward to sharing some of these with you as soon as we have completed them.

In preparation for our next inquiry unit on forces and movement, the 3/4s had a great time at our ‘Mad About Science’ incursion. We learnt about Newton’s Laws and had a go at lots of hands-on activities that demonstrated the law that things that objects that are still continue to be still and objects that are moving continue to move unless acted on by an unbalanced force. The activities were really cool and we had lots of fun beginning our inquiry into this topic!

This term we have been learning about sustainability. Specifically, we have been thinking about how we can reduce, reuse and recycle. Last week all 3/4 students attended an incursion about from the local council and were inspired to ‘upcycle’ items we would usually throw in the bin to be carted off to landfill. We researched examples of upcycling and what various everyday items (such as milk cartons, tissue boxes and coffee pods) could be turned into. We designed our new creations and then set about creating them. Check out what we came up with!Read More »
