STORYATHON is an exciting and free online event for Year 3 to Year 8 from Australia and New Zealand. Students are challenged to write a story that is EXACTLY 100 words.

Writing microstories is fun and provides students with an opportunity to celebrate writing. They’re tiny narratives challenging students to tighten their language, experiment with words and focus their message.

Grade 4 students have been given their own unique username and password and over the next few weeks write microstories at home on the following themes

  • Mythical Creature
  • Weird Adventure

Parents, you have a bit of homework yourself. We challenge you to write your

own microstory. Your theme is Space. Post your story in the comment section or bring it in with your child to share.

We look forward to reading these microstories.

Grade 4 Camp

Grade 4 Camp 

At camp we did lots of things. My favourite part, was when we rode to Butts Reserve. We climbed rocks, cooked damper, played soccer and footy. Some of the damper was burnt and some were light brown. Some of us climbed up to the top of the mountain. Then we rode back soon afterwards. That night for dinner we had roast chicken, carrots, peas and roast potatoes. For desert we had ice cream and jelly, the people who were allergic or were vegan had soy ice cream. Then we went to bed.

Bush Walking At Butts Reserve

When 4T and 4B rode down to Butts reserve we made delicious damper. After we made the damper and ate it we played around and some people went climbing up the mountain we were not aloud to go to high until Andrew joined us. We got to climb all the way up while looking at amazing views and climbing up giant rocks. When the group of 18 went back down every one played and ate apples. We had a great time!

Grade 4 Camp – The Amazing Race!

It was day 2, the teachers announced that we were doing the amazing race. The teachers gave us some questions and riddles to answer. We got into 3 groups and each group had a teacher with them. I was on Xenia’s team and there was also Andrew and Ramsey’s teams. Ramsey and Andrew teamed up on my team, they also cheated by using Google maps and they went to get lollies without us! But surprisingly Xenia’s team still won in the end.
