Maths Problems

1. 3.7 + 2.8 = 6.5
3 + 2 + 0.7+ 0.8
= 5 + 0.7 + 0.8
= 5 + 1.5
= 6.5

2. 2.9 + 4.6 = 7.5
2 + 4 + 0.9 + 0.6
= 6 + 0.9 + 0.6
= 6 + 1.5

= 7.5
3. 9.7 + 7.5 = 17.2

9 + 7 + 0.7 + 0.5
= 16 + 0.7 + 0.5
= 16 + 1.2
= 17.2
4. 6. 9 + 2 .3 = 9.2
6 + 2 + 0.9 + 0.3

Snow dream poem

I felt wet snow on my cold dry skin
As the darkness falls to settle in
The stars shine, bright to lead my way
In the snow I lay down to have a rest,
Now the snow is in a very big mess  
Window panels, covered in sparkling frost
It reminds me of something  i have lost
My heart tells me in hours this day will be past,
When nightime comes to me slowly at last
I am back in the snow so pristine and clean.

Sadness, shows me I've found this was only a dream.

Library bus

I was feeling excited to see that the library bus from Glen Innes come to our school for the first time. Mr Nath called 3,2,1 and I quickly put my netbook in my desk and quietly got into a line. We all walked to the car park and we could see Erika our librarian standing at the door waiting for us. When we walked into the library buse saw a lot of books. Erika introduced Bert, the driver of  the library bus to us. After Erika finished the introductions, we walked up to the children's area were all the fiction and non-fiction books were.

Next Mr Nath called each student to come and get there library card. Then we all had to pick two books from the children's area, Then Erika called us down to the adult area. The numbered books were the fiction books and the ones with no numbers were the non-fiction books. Most of the year 7’s went down to the adult area and picked non-fiction books.

I can't wait until the next library bus comes back next month, because we all get to pick two more books. It was very fun and exciting to read through some interesting books.

Life Education Caravan

This week, room ten had life education with Miss Nicole. Tuesday, as soon as we walked inside her caravan, we sat down and we waited for Nicole to speak and introduce herself.  After that, we talked about our feelings and our well being, we then watched a short clip about puberty and growing up.

On Wednesday morning, we talked about our body and how we grow, Thursday was our last day and we discussed about when puberty begins and when it stops. I felt amazed on what Miss Nicole knows, she was pretty smart and I will thank her for the knowledge about on how our body changes.

First Aid

On Monday morning, room ten had a session with Rob in the hall about first aid. We sat down on the floor and he introduced himself quite properly, we next talked about these letters, D,R, S, A, B and C. D stands for danger, R stands for response, S stands for send for help, A stands for clear airway, B stands for check for breathing and C stands for circulation. We did some activities and talked about more and more things to do when your in danger.

I personally liked the activities, we were got books to be taken to class and write on. I was proud of my class for behaving well, even Rob said he was impressed with our behaviour. I think it was the best session yet. I enjoyed it a lot!
