Had you been passing by BHS this week, you would be forgiven for thinking that Mr. Harrison had turned the Year 4 classrooms into bag factories! The children are working incredibly hard to design, pattern-cut, pin and sew together our bags so that they are ready to accommodate our micro:bit technology. Here are some of the parts of the process the students have been going through this week…
Disassembling our paper prototype bags…
Using the paper pieces as a pattern…
Cutting out the pieces…
Sewing the pieces of fabric together correctly (according to our pattern) in order to begin making our bags…
How We Express Ourselves
Technology Changes and Challenges the way we Express Ourselves
Lines of Inquiry
An inquiry into…
- Creativity through technology (function)
- The growth of technology and its impacts (change)
- Using technology responsibly (responsibility)
Next week, students will continue to work with Mr Lowe on their micro:bit technology and continue to sew together their bags so that they are ready to accommodate our micro:bit technology in order to become “Bags of the Future!”
Students will also continue to learn about ways to use technology responsibly through their Digital Passport accounts.
For the next few weeks, students will be reviewing the various mathematical concepts covered throughout Year 4. This will be a good opportunity for students to reflect on their understanding and identify areas they would like to work on in order to prepare for the next year ahead.
- Now that we’ve taught you all for almost a whole year, we feel as though we know you pretty well. but do we…?
- Do you have an amazing talent that you could share with us?
- It could be anything (that is appropriate for Year 4 students, of course!)… swimming, painting, yoga, spelling, singing, playing a musical instrument, gymnastics, soccer, meditation, dancing, telling joke, sketching, making movies, calligraphy, coding, writing, cricket, ice-skating, acting… the list goes on and on.
- Decide how you will share your talent… video, photos, live performance, poster, presentation, artwork, etc.
We can’t wait for you to reveal your talent!
To support their reading development, please make sure of the following:
- Home reading should be fun not a chore.
- Keep the timing short, find a comfy, quiet space and have a chat about what your child is reading. This really helps to develop their comprehension skills.
- There is information about comprehension at the beginning of the journal, which you can use to help guide your discussion with your child. Please also refer to information your class teacher has sent out to you about how to help your child at home.
All children should aim to spend 30 minutes per week completing their assigned Mathletics tasks and/or practising their times tables.
Mandarin (All children are encouraged to take a reading book home on the days when they have Mandarin lessons.)
