Life education caravan!!

Yesterday (Thursday 27th July) Room 4 headed to see Harold in the life education caravan. IT was amazing!!

We learnt about how at this age our brains have not yet fully developed, and we need to be careful when making important decisions. We also learnt about Puberty, and the changes our bodies are going through. Lynne (Our teacher in the caravan) turned all the lights off so we could see the sparkly lights on the ceiling, and we watched a video.

We can't wait for next weeks session! Stay tuned to learn more :)

Novel Study!!!

Howdy! Welcome to Term 3!!

Yesterday in Room 4 Literacy, Ironman started a novel study!! We had done lot's of prep about all they would need to know to be able to read a novel and do the activities, and the group were really excited to take on the challenge! We have started with the book 'Wonder' by R. J. Palacio. So far we are LOVING it!!

The book is about a 10 year old boy named August with a face deformity, and talks about his journey starting a school, and how he is treated! A really interesting and thought provoking read for Ironman!

We will keep you posted as the term goes on with how we do :)     Mrs Judd

Term 2- technology crazy!

Today in Room 4 literacy we explored the technological process and the steps we take to create something.

The class was set with a task; create a tower out of jelly beans and toothpicks that could hold the most books. Whoever's structure held the most, won!

We looked at the brainstorming part of the process, where we talked about our ideas.

Then we had 5 minutes to research online as much as we could about the best way to make a structure. After that we had to draw a plan to show what our idea was, and then we created! Below are some photos of us hard at work, creating a masterpiece to hold books.

The winners get a chocolate prize!
