It was great to welcome Year 4 back to school today - there was plenty of smiley faces, enthusiastic pencil case reveals and sharing of summer experiences! During the morning, the class was presented with a challenge to build a bridge using only paper and masking tape that could carry 3kgs in total. Team work and communication, as well as imagination and creativity, were absolutely essential for the task. No bridge was able to withstand the third 1kg mass, however we did have three successful 2kg teams!
We took time during the afternoon to tackle the Learning Question of "Who were the Romans?". Using a variety of information books, the class worked in 2s or 3s to tackle the question, as well as making notes on any other fascinating facts they found along the way. Those that presented were extremely impressive and everybody shared a new fact that they had learned with the class.
All in all, a great start!
