Term 2 Mini Reflection :

Term 2 mini reflection.

Unfortuanetly, I have now come to my last term 2 at Point England School. All though, I have learnt a lot of lessons from friends, teachers and other students too. This term, our main focus was to learn about tinkering tools and toys. It was a struggle for me at first to learn about the first world war but I did very much enjoy it!  We learnt a whole lot of new stuff! Even about the mascots and food in the world war. It was an experience to remember!

Right now, we are focusing on another inquiry task which involves how we can improve the life at Point England School. Mrs Tele’a, put us into small groups to work together on this project and think of one main idea. My group and I had gone through a lot through out this project. We decided that we wanted to fix our school toilets, due to its broken locks and other stuff too.

This term has been one of the most outstanding so far. I have learnt alot and hopefully can carry out these learnings in the next few terms or even in college next year! I do look forward to term 3 coming up! :)

Volume ( Maths )

Earlier this afternoon, Miss Peatos maths group had the very lucky chance of calculating volume into shape.  She first guided us with a video, showing how to do it. From that I learnt that, we have to times the length by width and that when we are calculating volumes it always ends with a 3. ( example: cm3 ) also known as cube. 

Here is a presentation show you how I work out these strategies :)
