Greek Myth Writing Workshop

Today, Class 4 took part in a workshop. We got to wear a helmet and hold a heavy shield and spear. Then Kas told us the story of Arachne from memory. We each made a story board of a myth. Finally, we published them.

2016 - 2017 K'nex Challenge

 

This week, Class 4 had took part in an exciting K'nex challenge. The aim of the K’nex Challenge is to provide primary school children with an introduction to the exciting world of engineering and technology in a fun and educational way. The challenge encourages the pupils to develop and demonstrate their problem solving skills, their imagination, creativity and ingenuity as well as early project management skills. The pupils start the challenge by drawing their ideas first and then building their solution, adapting their initial designs as they learn what works and what doesn’t!

The winners of the morning's challenge were Evan and Marshall with a bridge that fully met the brief of size and strength whilst being able to open.

In computer science, we have been writing algorithms to operate a set of traffic lights. First we worked out the sequence of a set of lights and then used code to control a Crumble (an easy-to-use programmable controller). The class were delighted when they were successful at completing the challenge.

In maths, we have studied the nets of 3D shapes; who knew maths could be so much fun! I had to beg the children to go for a break.

Class 4 enjoyed learning about the strange ways animals have adapted to survive attacks from predators. A possum that plays dead and a horny- lizard that squirts blood from its eyes.
