In art we have been drawing our selves . different fetcher’s of our face first we drew our eyes and our lips the next day we had to draw our face within one minute next we had to draw our self’s with are eye closed. After that we had to draw our selves with the hand we don’t normally write with.
In our maths we had to measure the weight mass of different objects in the classroom. The below resources are the types of scales we used. We also learned the difference between weight and mass which is affected by gravity. We have all learnt a lot on our first day back!
4S went to the Centre of the Cell last Monday. In it we saw real human organs given to the centre after they die so that scientists can investigate on the body parts.
Also, as our topic is Machines Including Amazing Me, we have learned about the digestive system.
Food is chopped, teared, crushed and ground by the teeth. Then it is pushed down the esophagus. The liver absorbs the nutrients, while the stomach blends. The large intestines take out the liquid and the small digest the food before it goes out the anus.
On our school journey we did lot of activities including problem solving. In problem solving we solved lots of problems, like this one where we could not walk or run to the place we needed to get to otherwise we would float in space. So one person held the base as one person made a chain to hold on to the next base and on and on and on till we got to are next activity base.
Today is Monday. Sorry but I don’t know the exact date. It was so cool! We went on a educational visit to the Centre of the Cell. I love organs for some reason so I was so excited. don’t you think that they are super cool too? Well I don’t think many of my other class mates are as obsessed. But any way, I saw some real organs. Yes real ones that humans had donated when they died. There was half a brain, some kidneys, a liver, some skin and a nee cap. See, I’m obsessed. This look like fun? It was. No doubt about it. If you’re planning to go visit sorry to say it’s only for schools.
In 4S we have been making Aztec Masks. First, we drew them in our Art books. Next, we started to make the outline of the masks with clay. We flattened the clay with rolling pins and sticks. We made all the holes that there were on the mask and used special tools to make the patterns. After that, we were given another giant piece of clay. We had to stick it on the old piece because on some masks there were things that stuck out. We were very careful not to mix it with the old piece because if we did, when we put our masks in the kiln they would explode and the force would make all the rest break as well. When we had finished shaping them we gave them to our teacher who put them on trays. The kiln heated them 1000 degrees!
The next week we got our heated masks. A few had broken in the kiln, but apart from that they were fine. They had turned white in the kiln and some looked identical. We started to glaze them but we got a bit confused. The glaze colours were not the colours they said they were! For example, the white was sky blue, the green a muddy brown and the blue was grey. We put them in the kiln again, but even though we have not painted them yet we will do soon!
