Hi, we are Meghna and Chiemi, the roving reporters from 4SN.
Last week it was Deepawali, or the Festival of Lights. Deepawali is celebrated because Rama, one of the Indian gods, was going to the forest with his brothers and his wife. After they came back all the villagers were so happy to see them so they had a festival of lights.
We learnt how to make Rangoli from our teacher aid Ms.Radhika. We made the Rangoli by sprinkling colored powder on the outlined paper. Ms. Radhika put glue on the paper. They look beautiful and really colourful. The Rangoli took 2 days to dry. It was hard to make because the powder was hard to stick on the glue.
We also got some Indian sweets from Ms. Radika, after we finished making the Rangoli. During Deepawali Indians eat a lot of sweets so they can think good thoughts and have a prosperous life. The sweets are made with lots of ghee which is a fatty Indian butter. They are very yummy though!!!

This is reporters Miya and Taya live on ISS International news. On Thursday September we got visited by none other than the authors of England the two Steves themselves! And what was that reporter Taya? Ah yes their names are Steve Barlow (applause) and Steve Skidmore (more applause). Back to reporter Taya then folks.
Hello! Miya was totally stealing the mic! "We thought they were soooo funny and they called the little kids STICKIES", said 4th grader Lauren. Funny right folks?
They used to be drama teachers and boy did they learn from their experiences, right reporter Miya? and that's a good thing too because they used that in some of their books. And they made a ton of books!!!!!!! "We were all amazed," says 4th grader Anisah, "we thought they were awesome books". Back to you again Miya.

4th graders in a middle school science class? You bet! We conducted experiments testing Newton’s three laws of motion with Ms. Corelli.
Sir Isaac Newton was an amazing man who had many PYP qualities. We decided he was an inquirer, caring, knowledgeable, a thinker, a risk taker and very open minded. He has taught us that anyone can achieve great things if they keep trying and are interested.
We have been having a great time learning about Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion. Some of the experiments we have done to test his theories include; launching carts with marbles, dropping objects of different mass, comparing the distance carts of different masses travel and lots more (see photos.) After much discussion, hypothesizing and testing, we all agree that his laws are right and that we use them in our daily lives.
