Super Camp Paiol

Eight students from year 4 and two students from year 3 and Maple Bear Niterói year 4 through year 9 went to camp Paiol Grande in São Paulo. We went to Paiol to have fun and meet new friends.

We did a lot of fun activities including: crawled through the mud, slacklined over the river, completed a obstacle course and played a game called Medusa that was like treasure hunt at night.

We went a waterfall that was freezing cold water, it took us 45 minutes hiking to get there!

We completed a treasure hunt in 6 different groups and when we found the treasure it was a Paiol T-shirt.

Amazing Presentation About Canada

Jim was here to present to us about Canada. We saw the presentation and we had a lot of questions. We listened to famous Canadian music and we saw a ‘pow-wow’ festival (it is a festival that is celebrated by aboriginal people or First Nations of Canada).  We saw Canada’s Womens and Mens hockey team win the gold metal from Vancouver 2010. WOO HOO !!  We did this to learn more about Canada.

Magic School Bus Scavenger Hunt with Year 3

Year 4 made the Magic School Bus lap books ( you can read all about them here). Year 4 invited year 3 to answer questions based on our projects. We did this to learn new things and challenge for year 3. We worked for many days to make the projects and then wrote questions for a scavenger hunt for year 3 .

We really liked the part of making the project and reading the book but we prefered the part when year 3 visited us!

Grids and Coordinates: New Math Unit

On Tuesday of the last week of September or the 27th of September 2016 in Year 4 class at Maple Bear Barra we started a new math unit.

Our new unit is called Transformational Geometry in the Math Makes Sense textbook. This unit is very easy for us after working so hard in math all year.

Will you study transformational geometry in grade 4 too?

Special Project

We made this special project over the last few weeks. The Magic School Bus project was made in year 4 class. All the students of year 4 class worked hard on the MSB projects.

Each student chose a MSB chapter book. We each read our books over one week, some students finished early. On the project we had to put 15 booklets sharing information about the book topic.

We did the projects to learn about many different topics. We are also going to use the projects for a scavenger hunt with year 3.
