Building Our Class Treaty!

Hi, everyone!

Today, Room 4 worked on building up our class treaty!

We did this by all participating in very amusing challenges done in groups of four. My group consisted of me, Jacob, Kristopher, and Lynette! We had so much fun during all three tasks, but had to work together as a team as well!

Below are some images and descriptions of each of the challenges that we had to do.

I hope you enjoy :))


I don’t have any pictures of the first task, but basically we had to create a bridge using paper! I think we ended up with a pretty decent-ish product, though!

For the second challenge, we had to try and build the tallest tower out of the other teams! At first, we were going to create a flat base using a group of straws, but realised soon after that it would be tricky for the actual tower to stick to a wavy platform from the straws on the bottom.

So we switched to a vertical group of straws spread sort of evenly, and then we put some tape on the sides of the base and connected it to the desks for a more stronger base. However, later into the challenge, we ended up taping a group of straws together and then placed it inside of the tape, if that makes sense.

For the tower itself though, we cut two decent sized slits on one side of a straw, and then connected another straw to it by sliding it down the two slits, and then repeated the process again and again!

At the end, we did end up having the tallest tower that was so tall, it almost touched the ceiling! It wasn’t too stable though, so it ended up tipping over slowly once I let it go. It was still very fun, though !!

The last task we did was by far the most challenging, and definitely required a lot more communication with your teammates! We had to first tie four strings that were about 9 centimetres long onto a very stretchy rubber band, and then we each had to take one piece and pull to stretch the rubber band in order for us to grab a cup and then create a tower! And we weren’t allowed to touch the cups with our hands at all, too.

We managed to finish our tower second, but I then had to go off to a Prefects meeting so I wasn’t there for the rest of the challenge however, from the picture above, I have a feeling that they just tried seeing who could build the tallest tower!

How to Caculate the Area of a Triangle

Hey, everyone!

This is my create task for the maths task about the area of shapes! I had to explain how to calculate the area of a triangle in a slide show, and this is the final product :))

I hope you enjoy!


Dettol Spray Advert

Hi, everyone!

Yesterday for Literacy, we had to present our persuasive writing speeches that we have been putting together since about week one advertising any item from either our home or school!

I chose to advertise Dettol spray and below is my speech and poster that goes along with it :))


Have you ever noticed a stain on a surface and fought the urge to wipe it off but realised that just a wet wipe won’t do the job? Well, boy do I have the perfect item for you. Introducing the efficient Dettol anti-bacterial surface cleanser! Just one wipe and it kills 99.9% of germs!

It works wonders on food surfaces and there’s no need to rinse.
Buy one now and you’ll get another one half price!

So what are you waiting for? Run to your local supermarket now!

Commonwealth Games

Hi, everyone!

Currently, the Commonwealth Games are taking place in Birmingham, England and will be finishing today. So, for Literacy this morning, we had to do a bit of research on the multi-sport event.

Below is my finished presentation and I’ll be posting my create task for it soon after this :))


Measurement – Conversions

Hi, everyone!

This is my maths task for today. It is all about converting measurements. So like, grams into kilograms, centimetres into metres, etc. I found this task quite nice and I’ve already learnt about converting measurements at the library with my study group so that was a little bit of pre-learning, I guess.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy :))
