 “This week the students will be learning about the skills scientists use, including making inferences, observations, and changing variables. Students will find that although they are learning about these skills for the first time, they use these skills in their daily lives. This will make it easier for them to apply these skills in a scientific setting. At the end of the week the students will be creating their own experiment pertaining to paper airplane designs using the skills they have learned earlier in the week.”

Key Vocabulary

– Inference
– Observation
– Variable
– Classification

Grade 4 students build on the Place Value skills taught in week 1. Students learn how to compare and order numbers using comparison symbols (>, < or =), use the rounding poem to round numbers, and renaming numbers. Two more pages will be created by the students in their interactive Math Journal to record the highlights of this week’s concepts.

Kind Regards,

Grade 4 Art
Teacher Emily Barnes

 

Hello Parents and Teachers!

I’m the new primary Art Teacher at ABS and need your help! For future creative projects in the classroom I need to make a collection of recycled items. Could you please start collecting cardboard tubes, toilet roll tubes, cardboard boxes, plastic bottle lids, yogurt pots, drink cartons, straws, and plastic bottles… other items you think could be used are most welcome.

NO GLASS PLEASE.

Please make sure all items are clean before dropping them off at the art room or you can give them to me at morning assembly.

Thank you so much,

Teacher Emily

What Do Scientists Do?

 

Welcome back to ABS for all of returning students and parents and WELCOME to our new students and parents! This week is the introductory week for grade 4 into the science curriculum. We will start the week by discussing what exactly it is a scientist does. Then we will be covering the basics of observation, problem solving, and using experiments to record and compare data (otherwise known as the scientific method). Afterwords, we will introduce the concept of evidence to the students. Evidence being replicated results of an experiment that give the same end result no matter how many times the experiment is completed. Evidence is the fundamental basis of scientific exploration!

Finally, the students will be able to test their newly learned ideas about evidence and the scientific method by participating in a group experiment at the end of the week. The experiment is simple, and will be purely to check the student’s understanding of the scientific method, and the concept of an unbiased and repeatable experiment.

 

Key Vocabulary:
Science – the study of the natural world
Observation (noun) – information collected by the 5 senses
Observe (verb) – to collect information using the 5 senses
Investigation (noun) – an inquiry or study e.g. an experiment
