Bridge building is easy!!! (If you know how!!!)

This is a great program to download....but ask mum & dad's permission BEFORE you download anything onto your home computer.

This program is the one we used in Technology Class. See if you can make the least expensive's not as easy as you think!(Especially if it needs to be structurally sound & able to carry loads!!)
Let us know how you went with the class activity. Was your bridge a success? Did it pass the load test? What did you learn from this activity?

This is the site where I downloaded the great anim8or activity we used in technology lessons this week with 4 Blue. I thought 4 Red might be interested in having a go (you might need someone in 4B to start you off).
There will be many times in the future where you will need the skills where you flip, slide or turn objects. We discussed jobs where these skills are needed.
This program is similar to the ones used to make the animated movies we like to watch. It allows you to look at your 3D creations from all angles. There are some tutorials (another name for lessons) that show you how to make your objects move.
Please share any of your learning...we can all learn from eachother!!

If you could choose a debate topic for the 4Red vs 4 Blue debate, what would it be and why would you choose that topic?

Early Life in the colony....

We are now moving into the part of our unit which looks at early life in the settlement.

Imagine you are Governor Phillip....

What would be your priorities for the settlement?

Post your ideas!!

This term we have been learning about British Colonisation.

Hasn't it been interesting learning about the journey of the first fleet? Life on the boats sure was difficult.

A few questions to think about 4 red....

What do you think would have been the worst part about travelling as a convict on the First Fleet?

If you were an Indigenous Australian, how would you have felt about the Briitsh setting up a colony where you live?

I can't wait to read your thoughts and them on our blog!
