We’re back!!!! After an exciting holiday, 4C are back into the routine of school.
Our big idea this term is POWER!! 4C have started their new CBL journals on their iPads which have included pages about wonderings and a word association.
In Reading and Writing we’ve been focussing on the different parts of speech. Parts of speech includes verbs, nouns, adverbs and adjectives. A great way to practise this is by using Colourful Semantics to build sentences.
We also played the Silly Sentences game where you are given a letter and must think of a adjective, noun, verb and adverb to make a silly sentence like this:
You should play this at home!
In Maths we have been continuing to learn about addition and subtraction. We practised our skills and strategies through activities such as the $100 Word Challenge and Garden Path puzzle.
In SELS (Social and Emotional Literacies) we did a group activity called the Roundabout. We were given a problem and had to think of the solutions. Then we discussed the positives and negatives of each and acted out our best solution to the class.
We hope you’ve had a great first week back also!
