As we move on to the end of March, I stop and think of how much the students have come a long way and how much they have grown since the first day of school! It just makes me so proud of the 4th graders! The students enjoy and make the most out of all our activities inside and outside of school. Here they are in action:
February has been a fun month! We have had our Sports day and the Celebration of the Chinese New year for our whole school activities this month. Dog Coach, Francis also gave the students a visit to educate us all on proper pet care we can provide our furry friends at home and for our lessons in Science and Math we have been learning about The Earth’s structure and Fractions. Here are some pictures that I would like to share with you that show the fun learning experiences that we have had inside and outside the classroom.
Indeed, it has truly been the most wonderful time of the year! This month has been packed with a lot of activities that the students enjoyed. We had the Christmas Concert, Service Learning with MoveEd students, Santa’s Grotto and of course our own Christmas party. The students were so excited for the coming holiday and school activities but still they gave their best efforts in their school tasks and activities. In Math we continued to learn about division through various activities. The students enjoyed our learning activities through games such as the Division duck game and the boat is sinking. In Science, we continue to learn about our body systems and how we can properly take care of them. The students enjoyed our investigatory activities such as the stomach ziplock stimulator.
Also, the students went to Bahay Tsinoy for their First fieldtrip and gathered a lot of useful information regarding Tsinoys in the Philippines.
Here are some pictures of the students during our Christmas activities in school.
November couldn’t have been better! This month, the students continued to actively engage themselves in the learning activities we’ve presented to them in class. Even during the week long class suspension for the ASEAN summit, the students were responsible in getting their school work done. Its amazing to see the eagerness of the students to learn. To give you a glimpse of that, here they are in class!
In Math, the students are learning about division concepts. The students have been doing differentiated learning activities. Here they are working in pairs and solving problems in their worksheets regarding estimating quotients with the use of digit cards.
The students are enjoying the investigatory projects we’ve been having in class. Here they are experiencing doing things without the help of their thumbs such as writing, picking up objects and opening bottles. This was done in relation to our lesson on structural adaptations of animals. The reflection of the students reveal their understanding on how the physical qualities of animals help them survive.
This month, we also celebrated Book Week. The students enjoyed the activities that the Library team provided for them. They had archery, a storytelling and art activity led by Mr. Boulton and we were also able to see the great performances of the other levels of the various books they represented.
Just like that, October has passed us by! Gr 4 MR has had a lot of learning activities inside and outside the classroom this Month. The students learned about other countries during UN day by having hands-on experiences in making food from our country and Korea. They learned about Australia and India through singing and dancing. Halloween wasn’t just about trick or treat for the students but they also gained information about Mexico regarding the “Day of the Dead”. Also, this month the students were able to learn about the IB learner profile “Principled”, and showed what it means to be such during the assembly.
Inside the classroom, the students displayed positive attitude towards learning their core subjects. For Math, we have been learning about Multiplication. We have gone from multiplying 2 digits by 2 to multiplying 4 digits by 3. Here are the students answering our Multiplication Dice game.
In science, the students learned more about animals in the ecosystem, with regards to their adaptations, survival, their relationships and how energy is passed in an ecosystem. It was very nice to see the students concern about animals and their interest in learning the said subject matter. Here are the students learning about symbiotic relationships and the food web. That was our October, We can’t wait to see what November has to offer!
What a Splendid September it has been! This month we had our Open house, Sports Day, Confucius day and the First Assembly by the 3rd graders. Along with the school wide activities, Grade 4 MR has been diligently working on their school tasks and building meaningful relationships with their peers.
For Math, we’ve learned about Addition, Subtraction and Multiplication. Its amazing to see the love and interest for the subject and witnessing them truly put much effort in the activities of the said subject. Here they are thinking critically about their answers for our activity in Math.
Here are the students having their experiment and observing the interactions in our Ecosystem. When it comes to science, the students are very inquisitive and it is nice to see how enthusiastic they are towards learning new concepts about our world. Good Job boys and girls!
