Polygon Fun!
In Room 22, we did a challenge using our new equipment to see how many nets we could make for a square base pyramid.  What is a square base pyramid you ask?
It looks exactly like the pyramids in Egypt!!

Take a look at our outcomes! Can you think of any more nets for square based pyramids?

DR SUESS WEEK

During this term we have be doing a lot of fun activities which gave us inspiration for our writing.

Our next theme is the ever clever Dr Suess!


We have been reading many of his stories and favourite stories so far would have to be "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish," and "A Fox in Sox".
We found that the story "A Fox in Sox", had lots of tongue twisters.  We practised trying to say them, however we found it so difficult it resulted in us having a good laugh when having a go!

Try this one below!



Miss Cooney had the first go at showing us a Dr Suess themed story. Have a read... what do you think?

Saving the PLANET!!!!
As a senior school we wanted to do something about keeping our school clean and tidy. Each class decided to take turns at being responsible for the rubbish in the playground (Yay for the 3 Bs).
Not only is rubbish bad for our environment, it affects animals too.  Take a look at this video to see the devastating effects that rubbish can have on our beautiful animals :( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7C01uKd6pzM

On our ventures we saw a lot of rubbish.  Our challenge to you, is to see how many pieces of rubbish you can collect in one lunch time. 
We wonder what the record would be?
Right, are you ready for the challenge?
We look forward to hearing back about how it went!
Good Luck!!!
PS- here's a picture of us after one of our clean ups!
