Welcome to 4 Tasmanian Devil
On Monday 11th December, we got to enjoy an hour of glow-in-the-dark dodge-ball as a Christmas PE treat!
We all had to wear luminous bibs and Santa hats so that we could see each other in the dark. There was fairy lights and inflatable snowmen and a Santa. We even got to play against all the adults at the end.
It was great fun and we all enjoyed ourselves. Have a look at the pictures below to see what it looked like.
In maths, we have been learning about metres, centimetres and millimetres. We learnt that there are 100cm in 1m, and 10mm in 1cm.
To practise our measuring skills, we have been measuring lots of different things around the school and ourselves! We used different measuring equipment such as tape measures, metre sticks and trundle wheels.
Some of us then had a go at converting our measures from metres into centimetres, and centimetres into millimetres.
Have a look at the photos to see some of the different things we measured.
Today we created different circuits from pictures to test which were complete and incomplete. We learnt that a complete circuit must have a power supply, like a battery, and wires connected to both the positive and negative ends.
Once we worked out how to make a complete circuit, we used them to test different materials to find out which ones were conductors and which ones were insulators.
Have a look at the photos below to see some of our circuits.

In Year 4, children will be set two pieces of homework and spellings each week.
Spellings will be sent home on a Wednesday and tested the following Wednesday.
English (or Topic) and Maths homework will be sent home on a Friday, due the following Friday.
English/Topic: You all have a worksheet with a recount to read. Can you separate the recount into three different paragraphs?
Maths: Most of you have MyMaths homework. Some of you have a worksheet and should try ONLY the multiplication questions. Some of you have the worksheet and should attempt ALL the questions.
Spellings: Both groups have words from the Year 3 and 4 word list for this week. There is no specific rule so practise them carefully!
Reading: You should be reading every night, and to an adult at least once a week. Please make sure an adult (or an older sibling) signs your reading record every time they here you read.
Our PE days have changed.
Indoor PE will now be on a THURSDAY
Outdoor PE will now be on a TUESDAY
It is a good idea to have your PE kit in school Monday to Friday each week so that you always have it ready for PE lessons.
