Hi Year 4,
How big is your Environmental Footprint? What things do you do to help to look after the environment? This week’s homework task requires you to reflect on how your lifestyle impacts on the environment.
Click on the link and answer a few questions about your daily life. The Ecological Footprint Calculator will then tell you how many planets it takes to support your lifestyle.

Homophones Concentration Game

Hi Year 4,

I know that some of you get mixed up with homophones when you write- words which sound the same, but are spelled differently and have different meanings! Below is a game to work on your memory whilst practising your homophones too. If you know some homophones which aren’t listed in the game, comment below and let us know!

Human Body Websites

Hi Year 4,

I have found some websites that will help us to learn about the human body. These will be useful for helping to answer your Inquiry Learning questions.

This week, the students in 4 S/P/A will be evaluating these websites as a part of their Literacy Café Menu.  I would love to know what you think about these sites. Please respond with your feedback below.

Don’t forget, FIRST NAME only!

For those of you working on Expand Vocabulary as your CAFE strategy, or who want to improve your knowledge of different words: Free Rice is a quiz based site which gives you a word, and you need to select the word from the list below it which means the same thing or very similar. In the picture above, the answer to “silence” is “quiet”. You can change your level to more difficult words if you are finding it too easy! Let us know if you learn any new words by posting them and their meanings in the comments 🙂 – Miss M

 

Hi Year 4,

Are you up for a challenge? This game has a broken calculator and some of the keys are missing. You have to find new ways to make the number by pressing the keys on the calculator. You may have to use more than one operation to solve the problem.

I would love to have some feedback about the game. Please post your thoughts and your FIRST name only below.
