Our first few weeks in Grade 4…

Here in Grade 4, we like to document our learning so that you, at home, can see what it is that is happening in the classroom. As you will have read in the weekly newsletter, we have really ploughed straight into our curriculum learning in General Studies: especially in Math and Language Arts (Don’t worry, science will be starting very soon!) So here are a few photos from our first few weeks:

In Math, we have been learning about Data management; comparing data in double bar graphs with concluding mathematical statements, evaluating trends in line graphs and soon we will be looking at how to collect data in Stem and Leaf t-charts:

In Language Arts, we all started to plan our first non-fiction informative blog in Grade 4. Over the next few weeks, we will be learning about embedding images and videos and practising how to hyperlink websites to our blogs. Although we have the added bonus of our devices, the use of book reference and research is still an important skill to upkeep:

We did it for Terry!

Today, we completed our 2021 Terry Fox run!


 

In class, we read a beautiful story of friendship between Terry Fox and Doug Alward called ‘Terry and Me’. Both 4A and 4B were respectful and inquisitive when we read through and learned more about who Doug was and the role he played in the Marathon of Hope.

Miss M even got to wear her 2019 Terry Fox shirt!
