Weekly Learning Review 24 January 2018

Weekly Learning Review

Class:    4A & 4B                        Week Ending: 24/1/2018
Literacy
·         Spelling: Students can spell and define compound words. They understand how compound words are formed (by putting two complete words together, unlike prefixes and suffixes). Students have been assessed by the definitions of the spelling terms.
·         Reading Comprehension: Students adopted different role groups and used the language appropriate to them, including the roles of leader, reporter, scribe and mentor. They created roles showing how behaviour can be interpreted from different viewpoints. Students understand how writers use figurative and expressive language to create images and atmosphere.
·         Writing: Students developed and refined ideas in writing through planning. They used settings and characterization to engage readers’ interest. They showed imagination through the language used to create atmosphere or suspense.
·         Grammar: Students learned to add apostrophes to make contractions.
Mathematics
·         Doubling and Halving: Students learned that doubling a number means multiplying it by two and halving a number is dividing it by two, or splitting it in half. We discussed that doubling and halving is a skill that can be useful in reality. Students learned how to double and halve by decomposing. Decomposing is breaking apart a number.
è   For example, 35 could be decomposed into 30+5. Doubling the parts of the numbers (30x2)+(5x2) is easier to do in our heads than doubling the whole number. 30 doubled is 60 and 5 doubled is 10, so 60+10 is 70.
è As for guided practice, we played ‘Double Bingo’

Science
·         States of Matter – Water: Students learned that water can be a liquid, a gas or a solid and we can see these three states on Earth’s surface and in its atmosphere. Water is constantly being evaporated, condensed, frozen and melted, and this takes place in what we call the ‘Water Cycle.
Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship Education
·         Vandalism: This week, students learned why vandalism (an action involving deliberate destruction of or damage to public or private property) is a crime. Examples of vandalism are breaking someone’s house window on purpose or spray painting someone’s property. Students understand that destructing or damaging other people’s properties is unacceptable.
