Week 6 in 4B
This week we have completed some amazing science experiments about weathering as part of our current UOI.
Over the next few weeks we will be looking at the area of Whole Numbers in Mathematics.
- uses appropriate terminology to describe, and symbols to represent, mathematical ideas
- checks the accuracy of a statement and explains the reasoning used
- applies place value to order, read and represent numbers of up to five digits
Recognise, represent and order numbers to at least tens of thousands (ACMNA072)
- apply an understanding of place value to read and write numbers of up to five digits
- arrange numbers of up to five digits in ascending and descending order
- state the place value of digits in numbers of up to five digits
- pose and answer questions that extend understanding of numbers, eg ‘What happens if I rearrange the digits in the number 12 345?’, ‘How can I rearrange the digits to make the largest number?’ (Communicating, Reasoning)
- use place value to partition numbers of up to five digits and recognise this as ‘expanded notation’, eg 67 012 is 60 000 + 7000 + 10 + 2
- partition numbers of up to five digits in non-standard forms, eg 67 000 as 50 000 + 17 000
- round numbers to the nearest ten, hundred, thousand or ten thousand
The convention for writing numbers of more than four digits requires that numerals have a space (and not a comma) to the left of each group of three digits when counting from the units column, eg 16 234. No space is used in a four-digit number, eg 6234.
Students should be able to communicate using the following language: largest number, smallest number, ascending order, descending order, digit, ones, tens, hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands, place value, expanded notation, round to.
Dear Elementary Families,
You are warmly invited to attend our first Student-Parent-Teacher Conferences of the year, being held on Monday 30th September, 2019, from 10.00 – 18.00.
The structure this year, is different to previous years, as we bring the most important voices into the Learning Conversations – the students. Please make sure you bring your child to the conference.
Please note that there will be no regular classes on this day for your children as teachers will be conducting individual student-parent-teacher conferences all day. They will return home with you after the conference.
Student-Parent-Teacher Conferences (Learning Conversations) are a time for:
- Sharing information regarding how your child has settled into the new school year
- Finding out about the goals your child and his/her teacher(s) have set for their learning.
- Sharing your hopes for the year ahead (please think about these ahead of time)
As we know, the importance of a strong home-school relationship is a strong factor in students’ academic success. Our intention is to establish a strong partnership with all families and for us to better understand the unique gifts, talents, and needs of each of our students. Please make it your priority to attend with your child.
Appointments with Homeroom and Learning Support teachers will be 15 minutes in duration. Appointments with specialist teachers (PE, Art, Music, World Languages etc) will be 5 minutes in duration (due to the high numbers of students that they teach).
If your child is receiving support from a Counselor and/or EAL teacher, you may be contacted by those teachers for additional appointments.
Appointment scheduling will be done through Veracross, our student information management system. The bookings will open on Monday 23rd September at 08:00 and will close on Friday 27th September at 17.00.
Instructions on how to schedule appointments have been attached to this email. Link to sign up: https://portals.veracross.com/unishanoi
We look forward to seeing you at the upcoming Learning Conversations.
