We started the production of our model cars this week. We have made the chassis for the vehicle, using lots of different skills. We had to mark out the wood accurately and cut it with a saw before gluing it together. We also strengthened the chassis with supports. The next step will be working on the electrical components that will make the vehicle move!
We held a concert this week and some of the children who learn instruments performed for the rest of the school. Jacob and David performed a guitar duet together, while Freya also played guitar in a solo piece. Hadassa performed a drum solo for us to enjoy too
As part or our culture week celebrations we have been looking at different countries. We found out about South African Ndembebe artwork and made our own houses with the same patterns. We also learned about Children’s Day in Japan, and made Koinobori fish which are used in celebration.
In Science this week we made models to show how our ear functions. The vibrations travel through the outer ear and ear canal, moving towards the cochlea. There, the vibrations are turned into electrical signals to that they can be transferred to our brains.
We have finished off our work on King Kong by writing newspaper reports about the events in New York City at the end of the story. We have been looking at the structure and features of a newspaper and practising breaking down our writing into paragraphs.
