Week 2

Year 4 Newsletter

 

Term 2, Week 2

 

Welcome back for a new and exciting term! In week 1, year 4 classes have engaged in drawing conclusions after reflecting on hypothesis and participating in force and motion experiments. Classes have researched different forces and Newton’s First Law of motion. We have looked at, how we measure force, and what different types of forces there are. Classes have focused on force terminology and engaged in maths tasks around measurement, multiplication and place value. In Christian studies we have focused on discipleship: What is a disciple? What do disciples do? What did Jesus teach disciples?

 

 

WEEK 2 CURRICULUM:

 

Transdisciplinary Theme: Students apply their understanding of Newton’s first law to improve their knowledge of where we see forces in the world. We continue to look through the concept lens of Causation and Change.

 

-Literacy Focus: Using punctuation, editing, and constructing scientific reports

 

– Maths: Predicting, measuring and recording length, width and area. Using scaled instruments to convert measurements. Applying understanding of arrays to measuring area.

 

-Christian Studies: An inquiry into discipleship and step up to Communion with Pastor Greg. A letter regarding this will be sent home on Monday week 2.

 

 

Reminders:

 

 

  • · Worship– In Week 1 Pastor Greg will be leading Friday Chapel- Jesus appearing to the disciples on the road to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-35)

Term 2, Week 3

 

In week 2, year 4 classes have started their assessment task on forces to describe how forces interact with each other. They have been researching the cause and change on something as a result of forces in the world. Classes have been constructing scientific reports to understand hypothesis, procedure, results and conclusions. During maths learning time, students have focused on using multiplication and measurement to determine the area of items for their bedroom floor plan summative task. In Christian studies we have focused on the qualities of disciples and someone who serves, explored examples of Jesus serving others and formulated questions about service. Please notify the class teacher if you require a camp checklist in preparation for Week 4 camp on Monday 22 May, Indigenous focus camp to Aldinga. These were sent home with consent forms last week. ICAS Digital technologies for year 4 will be held on Thursday after camp.

Week 4

Year 4 Newsletter

 

Term 2, Week 4

 

In week 3, year 4 students have continued their individual inquiries on events which occur as a result of forces and motion. Classes have published scientific reports and worked on their bedroom floor plan area summative tasks during maths learning. In Christian Studies this week students have engaged in Step up to Communion led by Pastor Greg and participated in the ALWS morning; “Walk my way” where 4-6 classes learned about refugee children in other countries who seek safety, food, water and education. The session connects with our class focus on qualities of someone who serves and how Christians are equipped to serve others. On Thursday, students attended the Connected schools worship with year 4-6 students from Good Shepherd Para Vista, St. Paul’s Blair Athol and Endeavour Students at Endeavour College. Students participated in worship, provided recess, mixed school orienteering and Christian Studies lesson. We thank Mrs. Mitton for supporting 4P while Mrs. Paech has been away on leave. Staff and students are excited for next week’s adventure. Camp preparations have been in full swing this week with organising our night program and student sleeping arrangements. Please notify the class teacher if you require any further information about our Year 4 Indigenous focus camp to Aldinga which begins this coming Monday, 22 May from 9.30. Please provide a packed lunch in a named plastic bag on Monday for first day of camp. ICAS Digital technologies for year 4 will be held on Thursday after camp.

Mr. Brian Butler visit

Mr. Brian Butler visit

Our intercultural relationships are shaped by the way we think and act. This is the central idea for our current ‘Who we are’ theme Unit of Inquiry. 

On Friday, Year 4 classes were fortunate to listen to respected Aboriginal Elder, Mr. Brian Butler share about his life experiences as part of The Stolen Generation and share about his founding organisation ‘Lateral Love’. Brian has worked with the United Nations to help the Australian Government achieve reparations for The Stolen Generations and advance reconciliation through the International Human Rights Community. For 20 years he was director of the South Australian Aboriginal Child Care Agency and has been recognised on the Australian of the year honour roll for his work towards reconciliation and a better understanding of Indigenous Australians’ needs. 

When reflecting on his visit, students identified that lifestyles changed for children who were removed from families, Aboriginal people are still searching for members of their family today, Aboriginal tribes are connected to each other and Aboriginal relationships depend on the land as a source of healing and spiritual growth.  Thank you to the Southam family for arranging the visit and supporting our students with this learning opportunity.

Week 5

Year 4 Newsletter

Term 2, Week 5

In week 4 classes participated and engaged in a wonderful Year 4 Indigenous camp at Aldinga. Students had opportunities to develop team cooperation skills through coastal treasure hunts, and traditional Aboriginal games, beach games, exploring Aboriginal artefacts, build traditional shelters called Wadlis, participated in bush tucker walks and a night trail, learn about and construct art and use symbols to pain boomerangs, and partake in traditional cooking. The camp learning program has set a firm foundation for our inquiry into Aboriginal relationships with people, land and country. Thank you to our parents: Stuart Giles, Aimee Iannone who stayed overnight and Karen Whittingham and Jo Southam who made day trips to come and support our classes on the camp. Thank you also to Mrs. Carter for supporting our students and staff with the Tuesday program.

-Exploring factors that shape Australian and inquiring into what Aboriginal people value

-Literacy Focus: Students compare and contrast two different texts to identify similarities and differences and express opinions, engage with persuasive texts

– Maths: Measuring distances and using mapping skills and scale, exploring angles, tessellations, symmetry of shapes

In week 5 classes have deconstructed our new central idea: ‘Our intercultural relationships are shaped by the way we think and act’.

They engaged in learning around Reconciliation through a variety of texts and group discussions. Classes have worked on mapping tasks to improve understanding of scale and distance, and began investigating symmetry in patterns and shapes. In our Christian Living inquiry, students found out about God’s messengers, what motivated them, and the action they took.

Week 8

Year 4 Newsletter

 

Term 2, Week 8

 

Hats off to our year 4 students this week, who have been working hard on their Indigenous summative task. Students have published their persuasive AFL advertisements, and measured angles using protractors to design, tessellate and construct symmetrical wrapping paper. Students have begun a service action plan to show their understanding of service and discipleship in contemporary society and build upon their knowledge of Christian calling. Classes have researched and found out about the impact of missionaries in Indigenous communities and identified key understandings before writing their findings in their own words. Keep your ear to the ground, to follow on with our current Indigenous unit of inquiry, our students will be painting the metal poles in the courtyard with Aboriginal artists over the coming weeks.

 

 

WEEK 8 CURRICULUM:

 

In week 8, classes will continue to focus on research skills and notetaking before writing their own texts. Classes to finish and reflect on our Who we are unit and share summative work with peers. Student will also have opportunities to present their service action plans during Christian Studies time. Classes to engage in a re-enactment of the last supper as part of step up to communion with Pastor Greg. During maths learning, students will focus on using appropriate operations to solve problems and use binary code to follow algorithms.
