Week 1 Term 2

Maths learning
This week we learnt how to use a protractor and it was quite hard for me because I had never used a protractor before. We used the protractor to measure the degree of the angle. We learnt about triangles and angles. We discovered different types of triangles and angles. We learnt the 3 times table strategy. We learnt a new game called target 100 game.

ANZAC Learning
This week we learnt about ANZAC Day. I didn’t know that on Christmas they would stop fighting and exchange gifts with each other and then the next day they would start fighting again. World war 1 went for 4 years 1914-1918. We read an article in the Gisborne Gazette about a man called Ray Campbell who lived in Gisborne and went to world war 1. We read 2 books called Gallipoli and An ANZAC tale.

Our lighthouse was successful because it stood up from all sides during the wind test.

All the year 4’s had to build a lighthouse out of newspaper on the 19th of March. We got 1 metre of sticky tape to use. The lighthouse had to be 1 metre tall and stand a 30 second wind test. The lighthouse had to be complete in 90 minutes an had to stand up by itself. My group worked well together because all of us did at least something.
