Bridges!

Published Monday, January 14, 2013.

This term our learning theme is 'Bridge over the River Kwai' and our BIG QUESTION is Why build a bridge? This theme is, of course, linked to our residential visit to Kanchanaburi which will be upon us very shortly. Cool

We started off the term with a challenge: who can build the strongest bridge?

In teams, we had to build the strongest bridge we could in 30 minutes, using only newspaper / scrap paper and sticky tape. These pictures are of us in action:

And these are the results: 

It was a lot trickier than we thought. Some of us panicked a little when it got near the time limit!

So that you are prepared for each task, make sure that you check out the timetable below to see when you will need to bring dark clothing for drama and a digital camera and cable for photography.

This half-term's Home Learning project is related to our theme, 'Incredible India'. Click on the image below for details.

Also, remember to complete this week's myimaths home learning task.

The following is a message from Miss McDevitt.

READING MISSION POSSIBLE POSTER HOME LEARNING

We have been looking at the features/ingredients of Fiction Genres in our Library lessons. Now is your chance to reflect on what we have learnt and share your favourite genre with your class, and maybe the whole Primary School!

This week for your home learning you will create a POSTER about ONE of the Reading Mission Possible genres (Historical Fiction, Mystery, Adventure, Realistic Fiction, Humorous Fiction and Fantasy). 

Your A4 poster:

MUST explain the main features/ingredients of your favourite genre in an interesting and eye-catching way.

SHOULD have images on it (these can be hand-drawn or done on the computer)

COULD include famous authors/books of the genre

Think carefully and be creative. Mrs. McDevitt will be assessing your posters and they will go into your portfolios. Some of the best entries will be made into full size posters that will hang in the Library!

If you get stuck, you can visit the Library blog for reminders about what we talked about in our Library lessons last term and see some example posters. The blog post is there to help but you must not copy the ideas word for word.

If you have any questions you can ask your class teacher or Mrs. McDevitt (in the library or via the Library blog).
