Bridge Problem

Can you solve this problem?  You have to touch each part of these connecting islands and you can only cross each bridge once.

This week with Sarah we started our egg carton construction for art. We had to plan what we wanted to do last week so we had our ideas sorted in our minds. Her are some of our creations.

Co-operative work

This afternoon we did a co-operative problem solving task. This is part of our inquiry topic this term. We are focusing on competition and co-operation. We had to create a bridge using only newspaper, Sellotape, string and card. We had to make the bridge as long and as strong as possible so that it could hold a 500g weight.

Stepping Out Dance

This afternoon Dean and Ezra from Stepping Out Dance came to take us for a dance session.  We learnt some hip hop moves and we put some short sequences together.  It was heaps of fun.
