The Arts-Drama

In room12 we have been studying drama, specifically theatre sports. We have had some laughs and happy tears. In drama we had to make things. For example, a fork and a knife, a rose in a vase and lots more.
This is one of the things the boys had to make. This is the Statue of Liberty. This picture has been taken by Mr Madge.

Three way conferences

Last night the school held parent interviews. However, in room 12 we did our interviews in a three way conference. This involved the students sharing their learning with their parents, using their learning portfolios to support them.
Parents commented on how well their children did, and that they enjoyed hearing their children talking about their learning. Mr Madge's role was to be there and offer support if needed. As it was, the students did a great job, and he had very little to do.
Well done room 12, you did a great job.

Number patterns in algebra

In Mr Madge's maths class we are studying algebra. We are currently learning about the following:

Number Patterns in Algebra:

Numeric patterns in algebra are patterns made from numbers.
The numbers can be in a list. Any math operation (addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division) can be used to make the pattern
Many of the patterns in algebra you see will use addition. The same number will be added to each number in the list to make the next number in the list.
       2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14…
The pattern in algebra is to add 2 every time. The next number is 16, then 18.

Examples for Number Patterns in Algebra:

Example 1:
The pattern in algebra is to add 3 every time. The next number is 20, then 23.
Example 2:
Can you guess what the solution is
