Natural Disasters

For the first 3 weeks of school our level’s inquiry subject has been natural disasters.  first we researched on a specific natural disaster. Mine was bushfires. Then we got a rubric and filled in the behavioral, physcial and locational parts of our natural disaster. physical is ‘what did it look like?’, behavioral is ‘what does it ruin?’ and locational is ‘were and when does it occur?’. Then we made a poster, powerpoint or any other presentation. After that we went with someone from a different natural disaster and shared our presentation with them. We put that information from our partner into our rubric. we also wrote a report about any natural disaster and i chose cyclones.

Hi everyone,

This week we have been revising on BODMAS. BODMAS stands for Brackets, of/order of, division, multiplication, addition and subtraction.

Here is an easy Example: (5 + 5) x 2 + 6 / 2 – 4=

10 x 2 +6 /2 -4=

20 + 3 -4=


This process can be used at ALL levels.

If I have helped anyone could you please drop a comment below and if you think I should have changed, added or taken.

Learning intention- who, what, when, where and why about a chosen compfight photo.

This is a photo of a soccer match between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich. It is at Allianz arena, Munich, Germany. They are playing a soccer match in a sell out stadium. This stadium is currently voted no.1 in the world. This match, looking at their kits seems to have taken place last season  in the 2012/13 season. They are playing in a the Bundesliga. This is a league match, the winner of this match might as well call themselves the Bundesliga champions. Bayern Munich has won this match (of course) as well as the 2012/13 treble. All the trophies Bayern are legible for.

I hope you enjoyed it please leave a comment below.
