Term 1 Newsletter Dianella

30 March 2022

This term the year four students have been learning about soil and the different types of weathering that makes up our natural landscapes. Here the students of 4C are conducting an experiment  exploring four different types of soil. They are investigating the colour, texture, absorbency, and size of grain particles.

Mathematics has been exciting this term with the introduction of new concepts such as identifying angles as measures of turns and comparing angle sizes in everyday situations. We have also looked into reading a scale, legend and following directions on a map. Students investigated identifying and drawing perpendicular and parallel line segments. The students have been recognising, modelling, representing and ordering number numbers to 100 000. We have investigated and solved mathematical problems using a range of strategies and encouraged logical reasoning skills to come to solutions.
