Term 4 has already produced lots of engaging learning opportunities for the students in 4A particularly in Science. In class the students enjoyed investigating friction in helping Jack climb the beanstalk. The first week of Science rotations saw 4A learn all about buoyancy with Mrs O’Connor. Below is a Padlet showcasing some of the great work done by the students. Bike Ed started this week with safety checks and continues next Thursday with the practical lessons beginning. Thanks to the parents for helping out. Please support the students in the ‘Colour Explosion’ fundraiser. This event replaces the Jogathon and all money raised goes towards things like sports equipment and playgrounds. Looking forward to an exciting final term.
Every year Mount Martha Primary celebrates NUDE FOOD DAY to remind everyone of the importance of choosing healthy snacks and trying hard to reduce waste so that we can keep our school tidy and help the environment.
This year NUDE FOOD DAY is this Thursday – 10th October.
On Thursday, we are asking that you give it a go and make a special effort to bring in a healthy, wrapper free snack and lunch.
We will also be running a colouring/ caption competition . If you would like to enter and maybe win a prize, please get an entry form from your teacher.
So…get creative and get wrapper free!

Last Thursday Tia, Scarlett, Signe, Kai, Chloe and Camryn from Year 4, went to Mornington Park to represent MMPS at the Waste Pioneers “The Pitch” competition. They confidently delivered a 10-minute presentation to about 100 people, including the Mayor of the Mornington Penisula Shire. They outlined the waste problem in Mt Martha and our oceans and suggested 2 innovative and creative ways to deal with the problem. The whole event and our students were featured in this week’s Mornington News. Congratulations to our students who were excellent ambassadors for our school.

Year 4 students had a very busy day exploring the museum. Lots of fun was had as interesting objects were seen, touched and listened to. A booklet was completed in the First People exhibit, helping us to learn and think more deeply about our indigenous people, their culture, history and the changes that occurred when Europeans arrived on their land. Enjoy the following video produced by Mrs Rubinstein that includes some photos that were taken across all classes on the day.

Hi everyone. As you all will know by now, unfortunately, I am having the rest of the term off to recover from back surgery. I have bone pressing on a couple of nerve roots that affect my sciatic nerve and cause numbness, tingling and pain to varying degrees down my left leg. It has been an issue since the start of the year. To alleviate the problem, I am having my L4, L5 & S1 vertebrae fused. It is a common procedure but it needs a fairly lengthy recovery period. Mrs Jeny Wallace will be replacing me. She is very experienced and has taught many of the students before in Grade 2 and last year, Jeny taught part time in Year 4, so she will slot straight in with no worries. Thanks for your understanding and support; I am sorry for any disruption that this has caused. I am very disappointed to be missing out on such an exciting term. (PS: We need four parents to help out on the Melbourne Museum excursion on Wednesday, 21st of August. At present we only have one) Thanks again, Darrel Hartwig.

Thankfully everything went well today with our filming. Thank you to the parents who helped with make-up, costumes and supervision. Tickets are selling fast for the film festival next month, so get your orders in ASAP. Here is a snippet of the action from today as well as a boomerang presentation.
Glorious, warm sunshine made a great day even more enjoyable today as the students from 4A participated in an action packed day full of exploration, adventure and learning. As part of our ‘First Contact’ Inquiry unit, the students were treated to a very engaging and informative presentation from Lionel about our First Nation’s people. We learnt a lot about the Bunurong people and how they lived, hunted and gathered food, particularly the local bush tucker which the students enjoyed sampling. Well done to the students for their behaviour and enthusiasm, and a big thank you to the parents who came and helped out today.
Well done to all of the students from 4A for proudly and confidently presenting their favourite pieces of work from the first semester to their parents at the Student Led Conferences. The students really enjoyed our Inquiry topics this term which culminated in the ‘Bee Project’. They all produced engaging and informative projects highlighting the importance of bees to the survival of our planet. Following our previous failed filming day we have a new date, Friday, July 26th. Hopefully we will have a full class that day with everyone back from holidays. Enjoy the break!
