Maths: The Price of Cheese

Description: For maths we were doing a inquiry. Me and Tabitha a doing our inquiry about the price of cheese we made a graph and table showing all the information about the price of cheese. We researched the price of cheese in 2015 and 2016 then we made them into a table and graph. In the graph it shows how the price of cheese has gone down and wages have been shooting up. This means that people are getting paid more so the cheese is a lot cheaper.  In 2006 cheese prices were high but wages were low. So people had to work lots of hours to buy a block of cheese. In 2016 Cheese prices were low and wages were high. So people had to work half the time they used to. Here is the sheet showing our graph.   

Book Buddies Term 4

 Description: In reading we have been doing something called Book Buddies. In book buddies we read books with buddies that have the same goal as us in reading. We also have coaches that help us to make sure we understand our book and make sure that our slide is up to date. We also have discussions with our buddies to talk about what we think about the book. Since I am in bookapedia we do something a little different. Instead of having conversations with our buddy we have conversations in a group. Suzanne has read some books all about one sort of thing. And she will give a question or quote for us to discuss



Market Day!!!

Description: Recently we have been doing prep/Market Day. Market Day is something where you make a product and sell it. But it is not really as easy as it sounds because we have a $20 BUDGET!!! This is where we only have $20 on making our product and making signs that will attract others. You also have to pay back the money that you spent. How you do that.... Well you have to sell your product and make the money that you used. We were in groups of 3. The people in my group was.....  Charlotte W and Bella L. We decided to make Mini Collectibles at first  but then we decided we would make Jellies with three different flavours Orange Mixed Berry and Lemon. Here is our slide showing all the different things we had to go through and a reflection at the end.
