We launch the term looking at different types of transport, both old and new: horse and tractor, hot air balloon and space shuttle, canoe and ocean liner. We'll be asking how transport meets our needs as well as how it can create problems of its own. A city like Sydney depends on a system of transport -- what a system is and what happens when it doesn't function properly are some of the things we'll be considering.
Parents are cordially invited to give a short talk to the class on one form of transport. If you would like to share a trip or voyage made interesting by how you travelled (camel? hovercraft? bullet train?), or would like to show off a toy, model or video related to our topic, please drop me a line. The children always welcome and appreciate such visits! MP.
Many thanks to the visitors who came to share childhood memories with us. Their stories took us back in time and sometimes transported us to distant places.
Some students have not completed all their homework tasks at Maths Online. I would like to encourage everyone to finish them off before the new term starts. Click on http://www.mathsonline.com.au/students. MP
