Measurement

In room 14, we have been doing measurement. In measurement we have been learning about capacity, volume, litres and millilitres. We were taught that capacity means: If there was a mug and it was being filled with water and it got to the top and that would be the amount of capacity. Volume means how much is inside as if there were a bottle and you filled it up to 700 millilitres that would be the volume. Here are some pictures to show you what have been doing with measurement:

Year 6 Fence Panels

Before the year 6 students leave the school they are making a project so that people can remember them, The year 6's had to draw a portrait of them selves and what they wear and all the details of them selves. But before they did that a couple of students had sanded and painted a piece of wood for every year 6 in the school. Then the senior classes drew their plans but instead of the year 5's doing it on a panel the did it on a piece of paper to hang up as artwork in their class. Then the year 6's started on there panels, Here is some photos of the art work:




hey had to do a pencil mark on it first but when Mrs D thought that it was perfect then we started painting them. Room 15 and 14 worked together to finished them and later on room 12 and 13 will work together to start and finish theirs. Here are some photos of room 14 and 15's panels

Debate on our school pool

At vardon school we have had a few problems with our pool, So Mrs Paton has sent out a form where you answer some questions about whether we should keep the pool or demolish it. Everybody gets a say in it like the community,Our families,Caregivers and others. There are problems with the pool but the big problem is that the concrete around the pool isnt leveled so we need to get that fixed. If you prefer the pool to stay and get it rebuild the cost we be over $60,000 and if you choose to have it demolished then students won't be able to learn to swim cause if they're in a situation where there surrounded by water and there in trouble they won't know how to swim because they never learnt because there school pool got demolished. So before you make your decision you should think about the students safety and how it would affect them.
