5th and 6th Class
Halloween Festivities 🎃
The class had some great fun in the lead up to Halloween. They did some persuasive writing trying to sell haunted houses, wrote spooky stories and recited them using torches, made sugar skulls, Tim Burton inspired portraits and candy apples and finished off with a Halloween movie and a party.
Team work STEM Challenges
For the first STEM challenge, the class had to build a cup tower. But there was a twist, they weren't able to touch the cups with their hands, instead they had to use elastics, which required a lot of team work and communication. Every team successfully built their tower.
Other challenges they did were making the longest paper chain using just 1 A4 page, making a model of a lunch to investigate breathing and their latest one was to make a catapult.
