In Year 4, students are exploring observable changes. In History, they are looking at the changes to Australia brought about by colonisation, while in Science, they explore changes in lifecycles, changes to the Earth’s surface and changes caused by forces. In English, students develop their writing skills to write a traditional tale, informative report persuasive text and book report, while in Maths, students work with numbers to tens of thousands. Students are learning how to apply strategies to work out, and recall, multiplication facts: Use doubles, use tens, use square numbers. They are learning to recognise and represent multiplication facts as families, with up to 16 different representations.

Year 4 students will study Digital Technologies in Terms 1 and 2, with our Digital Technology Coach and their class teacher.

Through our New Pedagogies for Deep Learning project, students in Year 4 are also learning to develop skills in Character, Citizenship, Collaboration and Critical Thinking. They are beginning to learn how to make decisions about their own work, and develop independence as learners. They are learning how to give and receive feedback on their learning, and act on this feedback. They are developing an awareness of global issues and learn that life is not the same for everyone around the world. In Year 4, students are also learning how to use strategies to find, evaluate and use information, and beginning to learn how to work with each other successfully to complete team tasks.Their overall theme for the year is We help each other learn.

The planned excursion program for Year 4 includes Bike Education, with a visit to the Redcliffe PCYC in Term 1. During Term 2, students will visit Ngautana Lui, to learn about traditional indigenous culture, as well as attend the Year 4 Camp. In Term 3, students will visit Osprey House, to learn about the biodiversity and relationships between living things in our local Mangrove environment. while in Term 4, students take part in our Learn to Swim program at the Redcliffe City Pool, as well as visit Scott’s Point for a Science field trip. More information about all of these activities will be provided closer to the date.
