We are very lucky this year. When the new Kindergartens for 2018 come and visit us throughout term four, the current kindergartens are coming to the Year 5/6 classes to do activities. The activities have been designed by the Year 6 children of 5/6C. The activities were based on fairy tales eg, Beauty and the Beast, Gingerbread Man and Little Red Riding Hood.
Following are a lot of photos from our enjoyable time together.
This week in STEM we pretended that Olaf from Frozen was going on a trip and he doesn't want to melt.
The children had to design a structure that stopped Olaf from melting.
Using only the materials provided:
Before starting they had to measure the L and W of Olaf (Ice cube) then put Olaf in front a variety of heat sources. Ranging from a torch to the sun. They then measured moisture loss and remeasured the L and W to see the physical change.
Below are some pictures of the children participating in this activity.
This week 5/6C started STEM.
STEM is - Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
Each week we are completing a task. This week we focused on the Three Little Pigs. The children had to build a structure that had to fit into the following criteria.
It must be 18 cm tall.
Use 10 pieces of newspaper.
Must have a wall.
The structures were then put in front of a fan. Low setting was a strong wind, Medium setting was a strong storm and high setting was a hurricane.
Below are some photos that show the children creating these structures.
