This term, 3/4W have been learning about data. These are some of the graphs we have made.

What do you know about data? Can you write a statement or a question for one of the graphs?

Shape in 3/4W

For the past couple of weeks, 3/4W have been learning about shape. We have learnt that:

  • Polyhedrons are 3D shapes that have flat faces and can stand up.
  • Pyramids have an apex and triangular faces that meet at a point. They can stand.
  • Spheres have no faces but they have a curved surface.
  • Equilateral triangles are triangles with all the same size angles.
  • Squares are a special type of rectangle because they have 4 right angles, like a rectangle. But rectangles are NOT squares.




We also entered the Victorian Coding Challenge by producing some shapes using Scratch. Have a look at some of the things we made! Octagon Square Star in the sea Circle

What other things do you know about 2D or 3D shapes?

Hands on Science

In Term 2, 3/4W had two sessions of Hands on Science. We explored different science activities and learnt about different states of matter including gases, liquids and solids. Some highlights include:

  • Touching balloons with gas, solids and liquids.
  • Doing experiments with liquids. We waved glycerin and purple crystals on top of flame.
  • We learnt what happens when you wave citric acid over a flame.
  • Touching the strange dough like object made out of hair conditioner, baby oil and corn flour.
  • Seeing which melted first out of chocolate and wax. What do you think melted first?
  • Seeing what happens when we leave water and mentholated spirits on a lid.
  • Putting yeast in different jars, all with different temperatures, then putting balloons over the jar and seeing what happened.
