Our sound for the week was ‘ture’. One of the words we looked at was caricature. We decided to create caricature drawings based on the characters in the novel Holes.
Look at our amazing drawings!
This week in Science we were designing and making bridges! The bridges we made had to have the following features:
(1) It had to carry a span of 50cm. This means the bridge had to stretch across a gap of 50cm in one go.
(2) It had to be strong enough to carry a load of 1kg.
(3) It could only be made using newspapers and magazines.
We found it difficult in the beginning but we made some amazing bridges in the end! Take a look at some of our bridges below!
Here is some information about your History project. The project has four sections – one for the American Revolution, the French Revolution and the Irish 1798 Rebellion. The fourth section will be for the links between all three.
Your project is due on March 1st – after the mid-term break. Bear in mind that if your project is submitted late you will have marks deducted.
Your project should be presented as a Tri-orama. You can be as artistic as you like, but don’t forget the important information that was discussed in class. If you are typing, please DO NOT ‘copy and paste’ – your work should be your own.
As each topic finishes in class, I will add links to websites with additional information. Below are two links to websites with information on the American Revolution.
PLEASE – ask a grown up before going on-line and be careful of what websites you are using.
Here is the link to show you how to construct your Tri-orama.
Here’s an example of a Tri-orama.
Please don’t use paper any bigger than A3 – remember there will be 87 projects in my classroom!
We are about to start the novel Holes. The main character is called Stanley Yelnats. Stanley Yelnats name is a palindrome! A palindrome is a word or phrase that reads the same backwards as forwards. We have had some fun with palindromes. Can you guess what they are?
As discussed in school, you are being asked to produce a project about how our country is governed and managed. You have been assigned your groups and topics in class. (Any questions? Forgot your topic/group members? – Ask your teacher!)
Your project is to presented as a poster or a booklet. It is to be handwritten, although printed pictures are fine. Below is a list of various websites that may be of use to you in your research. Please remember to ask your grown up for permission while using the Internet. It’s also a good idea to consider other sources. Think about if you know of anybody who works in the area you have been asked to research. Do you know anybody who is interested or knows a lot about your topic? You must provide a bibliography at the end of your project, and please remember to critically asses your sources.
