Data

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

Graph 1

Graph 2

Graph 3

Graph 4

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!

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.
