Year 4C News

The 4C boys have had a wonderful time in Winter Term. They have enjoyed learning about explorers in our current unit of inquiry, 'Where we are in place and time'. They completed a research task about an explorer of their choice and created a timeline of Captain Cook's voyage to Australia. They were fortunate to go on an excursion to the Shipwrecks Museum in Fremantle. Here the boys investigated a treasure trove of unusual objects, maps and tools and imagined who they once belonged to. They also enjoyed learning about the experiences and impacts of Western Australia's past explorers on a self-guided tour around the museum. The boys are now working hard to put together an entertaining assembly item about the First Fleet. They are looking forward to teaching the Junior School boys about the experiences of the First Fleet's journey to Australia in 1788.
