Scandinavia Projects

We worked in groups to create projects based on the three Scandinavian countries.  This was connected to our work on The Vikings in History.

Power for Good

The theme for Kindness Week was ‘Power for Good.’  We enjoy discussing everyday heroes and thinking of ways in which we can be everyday heroes.  We created superhero self-portraits during Kindness Week.

Science Week

Fourth class really enjoyed Science Week.  Our class experiments were ‘Fireworks in a Jar’ and ‘Surface Tension’.  We chose Alexander Graham Bell as our scientist to study and we also had great fun designing our own inventions.

This month Fourth Class have been learning about the Arctic and Antarctic.


Fourth Class have been reading the novel ‘Tom Crean – Iceman’ by Michael Smith.

This book is a very interesting read as it tells the life story of Irish Antarctic explorer Tom Crean.

Aurora Borealis

An aurora, sometimes referred to as a polar lights or northern lights, is a natural light display in the Earth’s sky.  They are predominantly seen in the Arctic and Antarctic regions.  The aurora is an incredible light show caused by collisions between electrically charged particles released from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere and collide with gases such as oxygen and nitrogen.

Icebergs

Almost 91% of an iceberg is below the surface of the water.  Iceberg B-15 was the world’s largest recorded iceberg.

It was larger than the whole island of Jamaica.
