In Year 4, we have been working extremely hard over the past two weeks, preparing for our museum which takes place next Thursday afternoon. In our small groups we have been researching information about different artefacts that people would have used throughout different periods of history. With this wealth of knowledge at our fingertips, we have then been designing and making these artefacts, to put on display. Our classrooms have been a buzz of excitement as we have been painting, cutting, sewing, sticking, drawing, moulding and paper macheing! There has been a lot of evidence of many of the learning powers being used; collaboration, resilience and perseverance being the most common, especially when things haven’t gone right the first (or the second….or the third…..!) time.
Aside from our history work, we spent last Friday morning being dentists. We used mirrors to study and identify our teeth and had interesting discussions around whether having wisdom teeth, actually made you smarter! We discussed keeping our teeth healthy and then made comparisons between human and animal teeth. We concluded that we were most like a sheep, as we both have incisors, pre molars and molars!
