In class we checked our resting pulse rate. We found our pulse and counted how many beats we felt in 20 seconds and then multiplied this by 3 to get our bpm. We did this 3 times and then found the average to gain a more accurate result. Next, we checked our pulse rate, but this time after 2 minutes exercise. We again found the average. We then compared our results. We found that exercise causes an increase in pulse rate (heart rate). Exercising causes our muscles to contract more often and require more energy. As more glucose and oxygen is needed, blood flow to the muscles increases.
Year 4 had some amazing costumes.
In maths we have been working very hard looking at different techniques to work out the answers to division problems.
To show the human impact on the Amazon Rainforest we made an optical illusion showing forest fires set by farmers and the untouched natural rainforest.
Using clay, and a lot of patience, we moulded and designed our own Sun Gods.
We have also looked at the art work of Frida Khalo. We carefully drew the outline of one of her self portraits and then coloured them in using oil pastels.
