Movie Marathons

Lately, Room 3 have been focusing on time in maths, from reading the time, to converting minutes into hours, and lastly at how to read timetables. As a project, students created timetables for Movie Marathons featuring their favourite movies. Here are a few examples:

WALT write engaging speeches

This week, students in Room 3 have been working hard on their speeches. They focused particularly on using specific language techniques to engage the audience and make their ideas memorable. We looked at different examples of speeches made by famous figures as well as ordinary people to understand what goes into a good speech. 

Take a look at some of their work. See if you can find examples of language like using first and second person, repetition, asking rhetorical questions, the rule of three and using anecdotes.

Mythbusting

Can 7 Up or vodka help flowers stay fresher for longer?

6 groups thought vodka would be the best at keeping the flower fresh. 2 groups thought 7 Up would help the flower stay fresh the longest while 5 groups thought the flower in plain water will last the longest.


After a week, the results of the experiment have become clear: 7 Up was definitely the best at keeping the flower fresh.

From left to right: 7 Up, vodka and water
The sugar in 7 Up provided extra nutrients for the flower, helping its stem and leaves to remain strong and healthy. Second best was the vodka, because the alcohol helped to stop bacteria from forming and rotting the flower.

What else could help flowers stay fresh for longer? Similar old wives' tales say adding pennies, bleach or aspirin can keep a bouquet looking nice and healthy.
