Christmas Term - Week 17 Mon 7th December - Fri 11th December
Language Arts and IPC
We have emphasised the importance of reflection with the children and they are really beginning to realise that as it is through reflection that real understanding is achieved.
Whilst grades and learning outcomes are highly relevant, we also ask the children to consider the process of learning and the journey they have taken to achieve those grades and outcomes.
It really has been an exciting and learning filled unit that has seen the children expand, deepen and broaden their knowledge, skills and understanding.
In the New Year, we commence our new unit of work entitled 'Being Human'.
We completed self evaluations and identified areas for development when measuring and drawing angles, as well as telling direction in relation to an 8 point compass.
Our first unit after the break will be on Perpendicular and Parallel Lines. It would be great if each child had access at home to a Geometric set at home for this unit.
G4 Performance and Exit Point
On Tuesday evening, the Grade Four corridor was transformed into an Art gallery and performance space. The children of Grade Four showed true courage, as they performed their poems individually to an enthusiastic and very supportive audience. The whole evening was a feast for the senses, as we were able to see the children’s art work and listen to their very creative poetry. The art work on display showcased the children’s talents in Visual Arts. This unit has opened the children’s eyes up to how we can view the world and present it in so many unique and interesting ways. We congratulate the Grade 4 students on an amazing exit point and performance! Well done!
We are all sure that you were filled with pride as we were as you watched your children performing with real confidence, enthusiasm and excellence, making the night a huge success and one that will live long in the memories.
