Sky Tower Visit

Today LS2, LS1 and room 5 visited the sky tower to learn about its features. Our class was split into two groups, and both groups got the chance to walk around the Sky Tower. Each groups went to three stations, the theater, the observation deck and the emergency room. Each room was apart of the sky tower and had lots of details to them. We watched several clips of the Sky Tower history, and what places you could visit. Some interesting facts I found about of the Sky Tower is that, the Sky Tower is 338 meters tall, It weighs the same amount as 6000 elephants. We would like to thank Douglas Bates for donating the money to make this happen.

Why Sleep Is So Important

Through the previous weeks my reading group worked collaboratively together to create a DLO about Sleep. Today my group presented our sleep DLO to everyone.The type of reading we used to create our DLO was reciprocal reading.We also used a strategy called inferring. Inferring means reading between lines and combining clues from a particular text and using our prior knowledge to get an idea. We all used our great researching skills to find interesting information and facts about sleep. At the end we summarized our DLO.

Scale Drawing

Last week we have been doing scale drawings. First you would need to find a photo that you would want to draw. Then you would want to draw your grid over your photo you have chosen, each box would be 1 cm square. You would then get your enlargement paper you would have to draw the grid two times bigger than you last one. The best strategy for drawing your picture would be drawing row by row. What I found hard was drawing the grid for the enlargement paper.

All we had to was to pick a partner and when you lost you go on your knees and verse somebody else that is on their knees. We then talked about what is problem solving and some examples of it. Our activity was to get peopl on the other side of the rope without touching the rope, or going under the rope.
