4th Class Ash
January was a long month in Fourth Class but we have been working hard. We are just about to finish our class novel Charlotte’s Web by E.B White. We’ve been focusing on Report Writing this month and took inspiration from Charlotte’s Web to research spiders!! Check out our spider reports and web art below.
China has been a big theme for us this term too! We explored The Shang Dynasty and their ruling. We found it very interesting to learn about Chinese New Year traditions. We wrote our names in Chinese and sketched some pandas. We also created our very own Chinese Dragons.
We explored Forces in Science, conducting an experiment on the effects of friction on a push or pull force. We tied a piece of string around a heavy book, attached some elastic and pulled it across a variety of surfaces such as tarmac, rubber, wood and fabrics. We discussed how a wet surface might affect our results!
We hope everybody has a lovely mid-term break 😊
