LITERACY

This week in Literacy we will be exploring imagery through the form of poetry and drama. The children will be thinking about volcanoes and their knowledge of how they erupt and using this in a creative way, acting this out and using this to help form ideas.  We will be using metaphors and looking at the language used effectively in poetry and also look at the work of famous poets.  This will develop into the children writing 2 poems of their own, in different styles, that they can publish and perform.

MATHS

After the Chinese New Year break Year 4 will be focussing on extending their understanding and fluency with decimal numbers. They will work with place value problems to tenths and hundredths, learn to multiply and divide by 10 and 100 by moving digits across the decimal point. They will be taught to round to the nearest whole number and in some cases to the nearest tenth. They will compare numbers of uneven length, reinforcing their understanding of the decimal system. Challenges and problems will help them explain their thinking and some children will start to apply formal calculations to decimal notation.

THEMED LEARNING

Students will explore the geographical locations of earthquakes and the effects of their destructive impacts on communities.

PSHCE

Students will continue to discuss conflict resolution and consider alternative approaches to dealing with problems.

COMPUTING

Over the course of the next few weeks, classes will work with Lego Wedo equipment. This is designed to teach modelling and programming skills to children. This year the focus will be on learning and exploring the mechanical aspects of the model and determining how they can change instructions to improve and develop the movement. The children will be encouraged to write their own programs and use their understanding to create models which work in similar ways to the examples.

DIGITAL LITERACY

This week we will be looking at the ‘App’ ‘Pic Collage’ to reflect on how it can be used as a tool to capture our learning journey.

VOCABULARY

Literacy – metaphors, imagery, feelings, colour, appearance, action, adjectives, description

Maths -   decimal, tenth, hundredth, decimal point, place value, digit, place holder, order, fraction

DUTCH

Koken, bakken, braden... Kun jij het spreekwoord raden?

Deze week maken we onze ‘spreekwoordtheaters’ af. De leerlingen hebben een spreekwoord uitgewerkt tot rollenspel. Deze week worden de filmpjes opgenomen. Ook starten we met het Digikookboek van S.O.S. SDS!  Na dit thema krijgt iedereen een prachtig S.D.S. Kookboek opgestuurd met digitale visuele ondersteuning.

Cito-toetsen

De Cito’s zijn op een enkele leerling na afgerond. Mocht u vragen hebben naar aanleiding van het mapje dat mee naar huis is gegeven, neem dan contact met Chris op c-samsom@bisspuxi.com.

Leesmarathon

De leesmarathon is weer van start gegaan. Alle kinderen van primary hebben een formulier meegekregen. De kinderen lezen zo veel mogelijk voor. Per gelezen bladzijde vragen zij een kleine sponsorbijdrage. Het kind dat de meeste bladzijdes leest, wordt extra in het zonnetje gezet. Van het geld dat de kinderen bij elkaar lezen, organiseren we op vrijdag 26 februari een spetterend filmfestival. En de kinderen weten het: hoe meer er gelezen wordt, hoe groter we kunnen uitpakken bij het filmfestival... Veel succes allemaal!
