This weeks Thinkboard is based on the volume of the area and Perimeter. The question asked... "The measurements of a cube are 9cm high, 7cm in length, and 4cm in width." To get the answer I used partitioning in time tables. First I did 7 x 9 = 63 x 4 = 252.

Venn Diagram

Have you ever wondered what the differences and similarities were between schooling back in the 1900's and now (2015). Well as part of our reading task we had to read a text and create a Venn diagram and see what they did in the 1900's and 2015 and see if there are any similarities.

Recount about Zeal Zone

Here at Pt England School we have an Intermediate. And every Friday our Intermediate block has rotations called Zeal Zone. Last we Friday was Zeal Zone and we were learning based on Inquiry. What are we are doing? We are creating object that could help and improve our school.

Me and my partner Rave have been focusing on a Basketball bin. We came up with this idea because we are seeing a lot of rubbish around the senior block and we see students walk past the bin but still decide to drop it on the floor. Our idea is... Oh no I can’t tell you. You would have to wait and see.

This is part of our inquiry as I have mentioned but we don’t know for sure if it will keep the school clean. But there is only one way to find out and that is by creating one and testing if it works.

Rave and I are working really hard and hope that it pulls off. If it doesn’t that would be a bummer, but we shall focus on the positive side of the whole subject.
