MathThis week we started Algebra. We also learned patterns that have repetition. Later in the week, we learned how to fill in missing numbers and how to write the rule. The difference between equations and expressions was taught. After a few days, we understood the basics and started the addition and subtraction of algebraic expressions. One golden rule we learned was that only like terms can be added or subtracted.

ScienceBiology/Chemistry:We unfolded the unit with the discussion of the global context and framing our inquiry questions for the unit Chemicals in Everyday Life. We watched a video to learn what do the terms acids and bases mean. We made a reading organiser after studying the properties of acids and bases from our textbook and discussed their properties in the class. We were shown a demonstration of how acids, bases, and neutral solutions can be detected by visible colour changes on adding indicators.

Physics:In the last two weeks, we were introduced to our new unit World Around Us. We would be learning about force and energy in this unit. As a starter activity, we used our plastic scales and rubbed it on woolens and brought them near to pieces of papers and we saw the tiny paper pieces getting attracted towards the scale. This led our class to a discussion about forces and the types of force. We learned about non-contact force through this activity.

This week, we commenced our new unit Weekend and Leisure Activities. The unit was introduced through an activity Big Paper: Silent Conversation. Through this activity, we framed our inquiry questions and answered some by writing them on a sheet. This activity helped us in understanding the usage of non-verbal communication. Moreover, we learned new verbs and their conjugations through group activities. We also enhanced our vocabulary through audio-visual texts.
