So last week was a short week, but we still managed to pack lots in, including a wonderful celebration of growth mindset as part of International Dot Day. Mr Matt got creative with our bottle caps and created some symbols of peace and harmony in the PYP atrium. In class we got curious and conducted research into “Why do animals have dots” as well as challenging ourselves to do observational drawings of dotty animals.
In the coming days we are preparing for our first Grade 4 Assembly of the year. Hope to see you in the auditorium on Friday from 8am!
In Maths we continue to build our understanding of Data Handling and are beginning to apply our skills to our inquiries into mung beans, animals, ecosystems and the habitats and biomes they live in.
In Literacy we are exploring instructional writing features within different contexts. As part of our homework we are challenging Grade 4 to read 200 books in 30 days! Please support your child to maintain and develop their reading habits at home. We look forward to students sharing their love of reading with each other over the coming weeks.
A reminder that MAP testing will take place between September 30th to October 4th and the finalised dates of each class’ test sessions will be shared soon.
Have a great week!
