Term 3 is going to be a big one, with plenty of activities happening across the school, including Cross Countries, Athletics Carnivals, Assemblies and of course Learning Journey Night! In Room 7, the Year 4 students have started the term with a bang, already sinking our teeth into our learning.
In English we are going to be writing information reports on the Olympics, along with a variety of procedures to help us cook. We have also started reading the book Matilda, which will be followed by viewing the movie. We are becoming quite the mathematicians, learning about decimals and will begin developing our knowledge of multiplication, division, fractions and money later in the semester.
This term we are also going to be learning about governments, rules, laws and our society. This will then be followed by the commencement of our Geography studies looking at Australia, Africa, South America, Climates, Flora, Fauna and Sustainability.
Our design and building skills will also be enhanced during Technology lessons, designing and building our own Bridges, which will be followed by a Paper Plane building and flying competition. As you can see, Term 3 of 2016 is going to be massive for the Year 4’s of Room 7.
