About 4/5P

We are a group of 27 students in Grades 4 and 5 at Upper Plenty Primary School. Our teacher is Mrs Placek. Our principal is Mrs Laffan.

At our school we have eight classes. We have about 170 students in our whole school. The specialist subjects we do are Science,Β P.E. and Art. On Fridays we do Singing and P.E. & Health – they are just some of our rotations for the year! In P.E. & Health we have been practising for Cross Country and learning how to get fit. In Singing we have been learning a song called “Fireflies”.

We have five playgrounds, a sandpit and a basketball court. We have a rebound wall and an oval. We have lots of gardens and veggie patches. We are so lucky to have seen lots of positive changes over our school yard in the last few years! When we came in Prep, our school was much smaller.

We have mostly grade fours in our grade and some grade fives too. We have been back at school for three weeks now and have settled into our classroom nicely! We have made some mini people (they look like us!) and some posters about friendship. In our classroom we have set up a classroom library where the books are divided into different genres, such as Animals, Non-Fiction, Short Stories, History, Movies, Adventure, Fantasy, Funny Stories, People and many more! We have been learning CAFE strategies in Read to Self and Read to Someone.

In our TEAM program, we made lots of other displays for our classroom such as Cooperative Group Work posters, a Catastrophe Scale, 5 Star Book Work and 5 Star Lining Up expectations.

Our Inquiry topic is about Aboriginal history. So far we have looked at Dreamtime Stories.

….and of course we have just set up our classroom blog to keep everyone updated on all the exciting news! This year we are looking forward to camp, singing, cooking, sport and special days like athletics and swimming carnivals!
