Grade 4 Inquiry Project
This term, your Inquiry Project is going to be investigating one service that the local government do for us. To do an Inquiry Project, you will need to ask two deep questions (questions that need lots of information). Your teacher will help you create your questions by giving you some key words that you can use, but your questions might change as you start to investigate.
As you do your investigation, you will need to reflect on how you are going, and you will do this on the handout called “Year 4 – Local Council Inquiry” (stuck into your Inquiry exercise book).
You will need to present all of the information you find in a booklet or on a poster. You will also give an oral presentation for 2 minutes on what you found out and how you went with your findings.
Your project will be due on the 28th of March and this is the day you will need to be ready to present your presentation.
Week 6 – Research; work out what information you need and how you are going to find the information.
Week 7 – Plan and Draft; think about how you will set up your poster or booklet, write out the draft. Make sure an adult checks it for meaning, spelling and punctuation. Write your speech.
Week 8 – Publish; create the booklet or poster. Practise your speech.
Week 9 – Finish off and present on Wednesday the 28th of March.
You may need to do some work at home so that you can do your project the BEST THAT YOU CAN.
Here are the guidelines of what we expect for the Inquiry Project

Grade 4 Home Learning Expectations
In Grade Four, students at Coburg North Primary School are expected to do half an hour of home learning a night. The primary purpose of home learning in Grade Four is to develop organisation skills and to practise their literacy and numeracy skills.
We recommend that at home you have a place to sit down and complete your home learning. You will need a table or a desk in a quiet area.
It is expected that in your half hour of home learning, you read for 15 minutes and practise your reading goal (see CAFÉ menu) for 5 minutes. Whether you write down the strategy you are using, or reflect with an adult about the strategy is up to you.
For the remaining ten minutes, there are a number of things you need to do, including;
If you go to After School Care, you could use this time to complete your Home Learning before you go home.
These tasks are ongoing and are to be completed at your own pace, unless otherwise stated by your teacher.
Hi family and friends of 4B. My name is Katrina and I am so excited to be a part of the community at CNPS and to be teaching 4B. I’ve been teaching now for six and a half years and before that I worked as a researcher in science. I love talking to students about science and the world around us. I also love playing soccer (even though I have retired) and really enjoyed kicking the ball around with a few kids at camp. I feel very lucky to have traveled to lots of different countries around the world, including some in Africa, Asia, Europe and South America – it’s fantastic to learn about how people and animals live around the world. If we haven't met, then please come in to the classroom after school one day to say hi.
