Fourth Class

February - Engineer's Week Parachute Activity

For Engineer's week 4th class took part in an activity where they had to design and make a parachute for a Lego man. Firstly they explored the theme of forces by seeing how many ways they could make a toy car move. They discovered that they could pull/push the car and that gravity pulled the toy car down a slope which they made by tilting their desks.

Next the class watched a video of Felix Baumgartner skydiving from the edge of space and discussed how Felix was able to work against gravity and slow himself down. Through enaging in other experiments they discovered that the greater the surface area the greater the air resistance. Felix used his body initially and then his parachute to slow himself down. In groups the class worked together to design and make parachutes which would help slow a lego man down against the force of gravity. 

Below are their designs. All of the parachutes worked successfully and each lego man landed safely!

Well done 4th class!

December - Advent Prayer Partners

During the season of Advent every child in fourth class was given another person in the class to pray for. They did their best to keep their prayer partners in their prayers and tried to do some random acts of kindness for them. During the last week of school before the holidays they made Christmas cards for their prayer partners and presented them during Religion. Well done to all in fourth class for entering into the Advent season in a very special way.
