Our Woodwork Incursion

November7

On the 23rd of October 3/4D went to a woodwork incursion. All of us were excited and were wondering what we will be making. We met Asher and he told us what to do.

We learnt how to saw, hammer and how to bring bent nails back up straight. We made a solar powered wind turbine. It was a really good experience. We found out how the wind turbine works. When sunlight goes onto the solar panel, it connects to the motor and the motor makes the panel move round.

This relates to our inquiry unit โ€˜How can we care for our Earthโ€™ because you donโ€™t need to use electricity to work it. It uses natural energy from the Earth so it doesnโ€™t do any harm on Earth.

We enjoyed doing the wood work because we have learnt lots of building skills. It was an enjoyable challenge.

    Hi 3/4D
    I remember I built a wooden plane. It was hard and easy but it was very fun to make.
    My favourite part of the woodwork incursion was sawing and hammering the nails in the wood.
    The wood work incursion was so much fun I wanted to build one more but we couldn’t make one more ๐Ÿ™
    But over all it was so much fun.

      Hi Sienna,
      I hope you had a great time at the wood work incursion and you learnt a lot of information on wood.
      I also hope you had an amazing time cutting with a saw, hammering a nail and lots more other stuff

      HAPPY BLOGGING!!!!

      Hi Sienna
      Did you like the woodwork incursion? I loved it!
      I liked the table. The thing on the side that opened the
      table up was awesome. I liked the hammering
      but I hit my thumb 3 times with the hammer.
      I remember making a wooden plane. Was it in 2/3D?

    Hey Miss Dickson!
    The incursion was really fun and I found the wind turbine really cool. Thanks for organising that incursion! In year 1, I think I made a spaceship at school also by Learning By Doing. I also made a fan using a rubber band at a birthday party. My favourite part of the incursion was when I added the solar panel and the motor because it made the whole thing look like everything was in place. The incursion was a really fun experience.

      Hi Theresa
      I had a great time at the woodwork incursion.
      When did you make the spaceship? I think I remember making a plane.
      We worked together. The table was cool how you twisted the
      Thingamagigy and it opened.

    Hi 3/4D,
    I loved the woodwork incursion. It was a great experience because I had never made something like it. My favourite part was sawing the wood off the wood. It was so cool how we had a table to make it on. In the end we had made a solar power wind turbine. I really enjoyed it.

      Hi Sophie Pa
      I also enjoyed the woodwork incursion. It was amazing.
      Asher was a great teacher. He even helped me with the bent nail
      5 times! How did yours turn out? Did you get time to decorate?
      I did. It was an amazing experience.

    Hey 3/4D, what a wonderful job you have done on your wind turbine! The finished product looked amazing, especially after decorating them your own individual way. It’s nice to see that you could relate the solar powered turbine to your inquiry unit, Sustainability. I wonder, have any of you noticed the big solar panels on some houses roofs? Just like your solar wind turbine which spun when the sun hit the panel, TVs, Playstations, Washing machines, and fridges, and all electricals in a house, can actually operate using the big solar panels on a house’s roof. I think that’s pretty impressive! Well done 3/4s on your amazing learning.

      Thanks for leaving a comment on our blog. It is great seeing you come on our class blog. Yes, I have seen some of those very big solar panels on some house roofs. It is amazing how much solar panels can do.

      We had a great experience with the wind turbine.
      I have noticed the solar panels on roofs, and
      they power the fridges, TV, lights etc. They are used for many things.

    Hi 3/4D
    I have made a wooden plane, it was really fun making it. I have made other things out of wood because my Nonno is a builder which is handy because he made our house with other people. I think making things that use solar panels is good because 1 it is fun to make and 2 we are using a renewable source. I enjoyed making the wind turbine. It was fun using the saws, nails and hammer. I learnt many things from Asher and they were interesting. I hope everyone enjoyed building the wind turbine because I know I did!

      It was great.

    hi 3/4 D
    I enjoyed getting to make the wind turbine especially doing the nails and sawing by myself
    I learned how to get the nail up if it got banged down.
    But most of all was to finish it!
    I was happy when Asher tested the wind turbine and they worked!

      Well done! you were able to get the nail up! I couldn’t.
      But Asher did help me.

    I really like doing the hammering and sawing.
    I really like it in the end because it spun round in sunlight.

      I also liked doing the sawing and the hammering.
      Maybe the hammering a bit more if I didnt hit my
      thumb! It hurts.

      We were very lucky to do a woodwork incursion. It was quite hard,
      so maybe 1/2’s are a bit to young.

      Hi Olivia
      You might be able to do it in year 4. But believe me it was hard.
      Especially with the bent nails! I went to Asher 4 to 5 times.
      My brother Alex wanted to do it. I said maybe in 2 years time.

    It was fun to make a wind turbine. It was hard to hammer the nails in straight. It was fun to see it work by solar energy.

      HI Thomas
      It was really hard to fix the bent nails!
      I kept going to Asher to help me. I felt
      kind of silly always going up but I could
      not fix it!

    Hi 3/4 D

    It was cool when the wind turbine went when the sun hit it.
    I liked it when it went by solar power.

      Hi Thomas
      Alot of things are powered by solar panels.
      But obviously if you have solar panels, it
      would be powered by it but still.

    Hi 3/4 D

    When I was walking to the classroom with my class all the wind turbines went on.
    It was so cool when they went on the second we got out of the hall because the light shone on the solar panel.

      I had a great time making the Solar Powered Wind Turbines.
      Did you have fun? We learnt alot of good skills aswell.
      I used the hammer and I hit my thumb a few times.
      It hurts! Happy Blogging!
