Listen to Read Week 3:

Good readers infer meaning from the text. 

I can use background knowledge and clues to put the pieces of the text together.

HOMEWORK Week 1

1. Reading – Read for 20 mins for a minimum of 4 nights and fill in your diary. Record in your diary, the title, pages read and a comment.

2. Go to the Caritas website using this link.

http://www.caritas.org.au/learn/catholic-social-teaching/stewardship-of-creation

Record the principle of Catholic social teaching that is being displayed and write some ways of living it out in your everyday life.

3. Spelling – Sort your words for 5 minutes everyday, complete TWO MUST DO activities off the Word Work Menu, and ONE CAN DO task.

4. Maths.  Write two worded division problems.  One needs to be a quotation problem, and the other must be a partition problem. You must then solve these problems, showing all working out.

Thank you Year 4, for your beautiful gift, so much of our school values, love, respect, gratitude, courage and empathy shown this week. You should be very proud of the people you are xx

We loved playing Yahtzee today as a part of Chance and Data in Year 4. We used so many mathematical strategies to try and beat everyone in our group’s scores.

The Upper Section :In the upper section, there are six boxes, each corresponding to one of the six face values of the dice. For these boxes, you enter the sum of the dice with the corresponding face value (and ignore all other dice). For example, if you roll 5 3 3 5 3 you may enter a score of 9 in the third spot or a score of 10 in the fifth spot. 
The Lower Section : 3 of a kind: Score in this box if the dice include 3 or more of the same number. The score is the total of all five dice (unlike the upper section, where only the dice of one number are summed). 4 of a kind: Score in this box if the dice include 4 or more of the same number. The score is the total of all five dice. Full House: Score in this box if the dice show three of one number and two of another (for example, 2 6 6 2 2). The score is 25 points. Small Straight: Score in this box if the dice show any sequence of 4 numbers (for example 3 2 4 4 5). The score is 30 points. Large Straight: Score in this box if the dice show any sequence of 5 numbers (for example 5 2 4 6 3). The score is 40 points. Chance: Score in this box with any combination. The score is the total of the five dice. Yahtzee: Score in this box if the dice show five of the same number. The score is 50 points. Yahtzee Bonus: If you roll a second Yahtzee and the Yahtzee box is already filled with 50 points, you get a 100 points bonus.
