Term 4
Numeracy
In numeracy this term we will briefly review addition, subtraction and multiplication before moving on division. We will continue to work on mastering our basic facts through weekly CLIC and Learn It Challenges and Basic Facts Quizzes. We will also look at the properties of 2D and 3D shape and angles, symmetry and transformation.  

Literacy
In literacy this term, we will continue with individual reading books as well as daily independent reading. We will be focusing on developing our reading skills - vocabulary, inference, prediction, explanation, retrieval and summarizing and sequencing. We will also be reading The Enchanted Wood as our first class novel this term. 
 
Much of our writing this term will be focused on creating an imaginative story which we will hopefully be able to publish into a book. We will look at character development, setting and plot when writing our stories. We will also continue to develop the different aspects of VCOP (vocabulary, connectives, openers, punctuation).


P.E./ H&WB
 
In P.E. we will be taking part in various fielding and striking activities such as cricket and rounders and athletics. 

French
In French, we continue to participate in listening and talking, reading and writing activities to further develop our understanding of the French language. 

Science
Our main topic this term is Planet Earth. Through this topic we will explore various science concepts such as how water changes from one form to another and how the movements of the sun, moon and Earth are related.  

Social Studies
Through our Planet Earth topic we will look at how our local landscape was formed, discuss how weather affects our daily lives and look at different climate zones around the world. 

Welcome to Primary 4!

Welcome back everyone!

We are all so happy to be back at school and everyone has settled in really well. We are working on familiarizing ourselves with our new routines, getting to know each other and thinking and talking about all of the things we would like to learn this year. We have been busy setting goals and targets for ourselves and are already working hard to achieve them. 

We have been We have been spending plenty of time outside and recently wrote some fantastic Mesostic poems using our senses.

We have also been thinking about all of the things we would like to learn related to our Technology context for learning and have already started looking at the ways technology has changed and started to learn how to code to prepare us for operating the various robots we have here in the school.

Secondary Colour Trees

We used our knowledge of primary colours to create secondary colours and used both within our tree compositions. We created our tree images in crayon demonstrating control of line and shape.

Our Helpful Robots

Primary 4 worked in pairs to create a helpful robot that could be used in the household or industry to do a task. The robots needed to be able to do a task and be possible. Here are our creations!

Primary 4 is Electrifying!

For the past few weeks, Primary 4 have been learning about electricity as part of our technology context for learning. We have been learning how to construct a series circuit and identify symbols for various electrical components. We have looked at what the terms conductor and insulator mean and experimented with different materials in order to draw conclusions about which the type they are.

We have also been learning about computing science and how to code the computers we have in class to carry out a task. We have been coding online and outside without using any technology at all!
