During this week we’ve inquired into how timelines work. Group 1 students finished creating their toilet paper timelines and everyone learnt how to create a scaled timeline by hand. We connected to our Unit of inquiry by researching how some innovations have changed over time, including things with wheels and Children’s games.
We were hands-on again when we asked students to create an accurate clock face. We saw some really interesting connections to fractions and degrees as a unit of measurement as the children worked together to make their clocks.
Your child has also spent some time reflecting on their Grade 4 learning journey and compiling a digital portfolio of ‘wow moments’ from their year so far. It’s been a really good opportunity to reflect on learning goals and adjust them where necessary.
Here is a message from Ms Alex:
