Everyone has been busy working on their summative assessment projects.I have seen a lot of creative machine ideas in the classroom.Needless to say, the classroom is a bit of a mess with a clutter of toilet paper rolls, boxes, tubes, card board, etc.Your child might be looking for some interesting items at home to use on their project and they are welcome to bring these things into school to create his/her invention.

Friday afternoon, November 23rd, between 14:00 and 15:00, you are welcome to pop into our Invention Convention, where the students will exhibit their creations and tell you all about them.

Field Trip

On Tuesday, November 27th we will be traveling to Porsgrunn to DuVerden Science Center where we will attend a workshop and enjoy their exhibition based on our simple machines unit. We will take the train at 9:15 and return by train at 2:45. I am hoping that all students can be dropped off at the train station and collected from there after school.If not, I will be happy to help find transportation to and from the train station for those who cannot do it.Please let me know if it is a problem for you by sending me an e-mail.
