About Our Class
Welcome to Room 4 at Eagle Point Primary School! Mr Robert Driver is our teacher. We are very lucky to have a lovely class of 23 students.
Our classroom is a happy, supportive, challenging learning environment where students are able to explore, be creative and achieve success. As a class we have expectations that are based around our school values of Respect, Responsibility, Care, Inclusiveness and Commitment.
These expectations guide us in our classroom to be the best learners and people we can be. In addition to this we have a focus on quality work. Students develop a list of ideas of what quality work is, based around what the word ‘QUALITY’ means to them.
The students in Room 4 complete homework tasks each week. This consists of daily reading, spelling words and other Literacy and Math activities that directly relate to what they are doing in class at the time. Quite often this is not a worksheet but a chance for the students to research, discuss and brainstorm with family members.
This term in Reading, we will be focusing on developing students reading skills, practicing fluency and an increased focus on literal and inferential comprehension. In Writing, we will be focusing on Narratives and persuasive writing genres. In Spelling, we will be focusing on spelling all of the 300 most commonly used words, 500 Oxford words and continuing with our whole school Soundwaves Program.
In Mathematics, we will be focusing on money, location, probability and the four operations- addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. As well as explicit instruction, students have begun trailing an exciting math program called ‘Prodigy’. This program has the students highly engaged as they explore worlds whilst developing mathematical skills. Prodigy can be played on P.C or iPad at home and login details are available in class. This year Grade 3 and 4 will be exploring robotics with Lego WeDo and coding with "Scratch" from M.I.T.
In Theme, we will be learning about ‘Choice theory’ in Term 1 and ‘World cultures’ in Term 2. If your child has anything they would like to bring in and share please feel free to bring it into the classroom.
The staff and students in Room 4 would also like to extend our thanks to all the parents, carers and community members that volunteer their time and effort to help our classroom learning. Thanks!
Remember the door is always open!
