This week year 4 students began inquiring into our fourth unit for the year. You will find the learning outcomes for this unit here: HOW WE ORGANISE OURSELVES.
We have looked at definitions and examples of some key vocabulary – organization, service, impact, cooperation, respect and responsibility. We have also had guest speakers to talk about the organizations they work with to help students tune in to the unit.
For Math, within the unit, we will look at data handling – more specifically writing survey questions. As a standalone unit, we are introducing the concept of multiplication and the inverse operation of division. Later we will move on to various strategies to understand and solve multiplication and division problems.
For language within this unit, we will learn about persuasive writing – students will look at exemplars of this text type and analyze the language features and the structure of persuasive writing. More about this in a later blog post.
