Grade 4 studied the novel Charlotte’s Web last term. As a final project they created a web that conveyed a positive and inspiring message to a friend. Connecting with Sustainable Development Goals, learners made their web from reusable materials found around their home.
The purpose of the activity was to send a positive message to a friend to boost their self-esteem. Design your own web with a message to cheer your friend up and make them feel terrific again. Being a person who believes strongly in sustainable development you must try to buy nothing to make your web. By using recycled materials to build your web you are taking care of the environment.
The learners write an organised report listing their materials, procedure and showing well developed reasoning behind their web’s message.
The learners make well-developed documentation of their work with sketches, models or texts where the intentions at work are well-visible.
How I made my web – By Luke
Pen and paper
2 plastic spiders left from last Halloween
“You are awesome”
I think it is a kind thing to say to somebody.
What I used
1.One broken rc propeller
3.One broken hanger
4.One guitar string
5.Old thread from the 60s
6.Six fluffy sticks
7.A hot glue gun
I glued the propeller,flower sticks and hanger to get the base of the web.
When I finished the base I started with putting the string around.
When I finished putting the string and thread around the web I starteith the letters K I N D and a spider.Then I was DONE!

In grade 3, learners are practicing their writing skills daily! This term we are focusing on non fiction and learners are working on their informational text. As part of the English subject, each grade is assigned a continent in which learners and teachers work together to gather information regarding geographical, cultural and statistical facts. Grade 3 is working on the continent of America!
Learners are researching information regarding a country of their choice, taking notes and using them to create an informational text about this country that will go in a tourist magazine!
IPC Goals or purpose of activity.
-We are currently working on the “Gateways to the world” IPC unit, a unit that is focused on geography, climate zones, ways of transportation and many more!
