December in Ms Diskin’s Class

December was a busy but exciting month in 4th Class. Here are some of the activities we got up to!

Science: we were learning all about Electricity in SESE. We learned about the life of Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Edison and their contributions to electricity. We then learned about static electricity in Science and put it to the test using balloons!! Lot’s of laughs during this experiment 🙂

We made rain gauges in December to investigate rainfall…unfortunately once we put them out we got no rain so we decided to leave them out over the Winter Break to see if it makes a difference. Watch this space!

In Art we continued our learning under the water theme on the River System. This was a larger scale partnered drawing and paint art lesson. Here are our artists of the week – well done Jake and Piotr.


Well done to the great artistic team Piotr and Jake.


In Maths one topic we extended our learning in was lines and angles. Check out our hands on activities that helped consolidate our learning on this topic.
