Journey tales

Robins have put a lot of effort into writing their journey tales this week based on the Awongalema story.

Once they published their stories into their books, they then paid a visit to Year 3 to read their stories. Year 3 really enjoyed listening to the wonderful writing Year 4 had produced.

Chemical changes

The children in Year 4 are really excited about starting their new topic in Science on chemical changes. In this topic we will be looking at what happens when two chemicals react with each other and recognising if this reaction is reversible or irreversible.

In our first science lesson we talked a lot about the safety procedures we need to follow in these lessons. We then watched our first chemical reaction called Green Fire!

Game making in Kodu

Year 4 Robins have today been get familar with programming using Kodu – a 3D game developing platform.

The children were asked to explore the program and see if they could insert a Rover to move around and collect coins. The coins should vanish once the Rover bumps into them. Points should also be awarded when each coin is collected.

Some of the children grasped today’s task and really enjoyed Kodu.
