This term we have been looking at peace and war. To finish our inquiry we had to
make a poster on peace and explain what we had chosen to put on our poster and why.
Here are our posters. We all included an acrostic poem about peace and most of us
chose a symbol that represents the campaign against nuclear disarmament. We chose
this after hearing and watching the story of Sadako. Some of us also chose to put a dove
on our poster as this is also a symbol for peace.

In term three we studied structures. In room three our main structural focus was bridges. After finding out lots of information about the different types of bridges and there purpose our teacher set us three challenges. This movie shows us taking part in these challenges.
We learnt a lot, not only about bridges but the importance of planning, working together and how sometimes however hard we try to achieve the goal it just doesn't work.
In our movie we had a newspaper bridge challenge. We referred back to what we had learnt about the structures of bridges and how the triangle shape makes a strong bridge. After planning a great design we discovered that although the bridge looked great on paper the real life bridge itself was not so great and shortly after filming our bridge collapsed. We believe this is when we learn the most.

Yesterday as part of out topic on structures we had to paint a bridge silhouette. We had the choice of one bridge that would need to fill the whole paper or we could fold our paper into 4ths and draw a different bridge in each section. Here are our results.
My name is Keira and I chose to paint a silhouette of one bridge. It took a long time, all day!!
But I am very happy with how it looks.
Hi I am Ailima. I chose to fold my paper into 4ths and make 4 different bridges.
It was very tricky to make the water and the sky around my bridges. It took ALL DAY!
I love my picture and I’m taking it home for my mum.
Hi I am Lucas. My bridge has lights on the top for the cars to see.
I had lots of fun painting and drawing my bridge.
Hi I am David. I was the first to Finnish my picture. I was good at adding
Detail to my picture with the small paint brush. I like my picture.
