Snowy Adventure Art Competition

Year 4 have just started a writing unit called "Stories Set in Imaginary Worlds". Our anchor text, A Snowy Adventure, has a monster known as the Snow Beast in it. 
We have decided to host an art competition for the Year 4 students - they must create a representation of the Snow Beast from the story. 
Here is the poster we have displayed in the rooms:


The snow beast can be in any medium from pencil drawing to painting or even modelling clay.
Be imaginative!
The final date to submit your work is Friday December 1.
Good luck!

Where's my Pulse?

This week in Connected Learning, Year 4 learnt about the cardivascular system. We learnt how the heart pumps blood around the body and that when you use your muscles your heart needs to send more oxygen to them through your blood. We planned a practical investigation to learn more about our heartbeat. 

Today, to see how it all works together, we went outside and completed a number of different physical tasks: running, jumping, stretching, sit ups and a bunch more. 

We ensured we had a fair test planned and after each activity we measured our pulse to see how fast our heart was beating. We also made notes on he we felt and what we observed about our bodies.

This investigation was a great introduction to the scientific method and the importance of fair testing. 
It was also great fun getting out of the classroom and doing some learning outside!

Little Scientists

Year 4 have started the year with a unit called "Our Body". For our first hands-on activity, we were able to look through microscopes and examine different human cells - liver cells, kidney cells, muscle cells and blood cells, just to name a few. After we examined the cells, we tried drawing them - their shape and pattern - for our lapbooks. We love science!
