LITERACY

In Literacy this week, children will be combining their previous week’s learning of balanced arguments and the associated grammar with the International Week celebrations. During this week, as Year 4 will be focusing on Antarctica and the wonders that this continent encompasses, children will be writing ‘Should tourists visit Antarctica?’ Consequently, they will learn about the flora, fauna, climate and landscapes of this place, while further embedding their knowledge of causal and contrasting connectives, improving their ability to generate arguments for and against.

MATHS

This coming week we will be working with shape and space. The children will learn to classify 2D shapes according to their properties, in particular parallel lines and angles. They will learn the names of common angles and begin to relate angles to measurement in degrees. The children will be encouraged to explain their reasoning regarding shapes and develop mathematical vocabulary.

THEMED LEARNING

International week has arrived! The students of Year 4 have been given the responsibility of investigating the continent of Antarctica. This will mean that for their learning they will conduct experiments considering icebergs and the salinity of water when floating. They will also research landscape and wildlife of the southern tundra to create dioramas.

COMPUTING

Students will continue to create computer coding to create games.

VOCABULARY

Literacy – Argument, balance, debate, contrasting, structure

Maths – right angle, straight line, full turn, degree, vertex, line, side, parallel, opposing, adjacent, isosceles, scalene, equilateral, quadrilateral, and congruent.

Themed – tundra, wilderness, expedition, tortuous, blizzard, remote, extreme
