Term 3 has gone so fast, that it’s already term 4. So far we have…
Drawn angles on the carpet with chalk, estimated their degrees then we learnt how to measure with protractors them before measuring their actual degrees.This helped us to learn how to measure angles and to estimate angles.
In writing we have another teacher, teaching us how to make better and quicker ideas. One technique she taught us was the “I see, I think and I wonder”. Which is when you bring a memory (seed) in, you write about the memory. Another strategy was “I can write about…”. This one helps you when you’re stuck on an idea for writing. We write things in our book that would be ideas. (For example, holidays, adventures, life, nightmares, dreams, ads, e.t.c).
Deep Learning/Reading (only week 1)
In reading we have been on a website that would help us look for information about words that we didn’t know or that we have heard of. (The website was about parliament). We had to only us that website. One day we could use the search button on the website. Then the next day we could only use the websites links. It was really hard to find that information that we needed on the website. The website will be here.
Camp (4’s only)
The grade 4’s in our class went to camp with the other 3’s & 4’s. It’s been very quiet and peaceful without them, but they will be back by 06/10/16. We will see them on the 09/10/16. A blog will be about the camp next week at some point.
