Fantastic Pheasants at the Beach

On Thursday the 28th of January the Grade 4 Pheasants joined the rest of the Grade 4s for a wonderful morning of bonding and frivolity at Small Bay beach. The weather was perfect, with lovely warm water and pleasant temperatures. A gentle mist hung around for a while keeping the bathers cool while they enjoyed the waves under the watchful eyes of the teachers and lifeguards. Other members of our class preferred to clamber on the jungle gym or spend some quality time with mom or dad. The ice-cream man made his appearance mid morning, much to the pleasure of the pupils who quickly depleted his stock. All in it was a wonderful morning enjoyed by all.

Interactive bulletin board ideas

We have used interactive bulletin boards during the first term of Grade 4.  Each board has some sort of worksheet and the children are rewarded with merits for each activity completed.  The answers to the worksheets are up in the classroom so they are self correcting.  Each child has a folder in which their worksheets are stored.

Leader board

Leaders around the world

The children had to match the picture of the leader with the names on the worksheet.  They were allowed to discuss it with each other or even involve their parents who often come into our classes in the mornings.


Wilde Diere (Wild Animals)

They learnt the names of the animals for spelling and completed a search-a-word to reinforce the spelling.



Every Monday 16 new letters are put up on the Boggle board and the children need to make as many words as they can.  They may work in pairs.  The words are handed in on a Friday and the team/child with the most words earns merits.



A punctuation sheet on commas was replaced every week.
