We are comparing our resting heart rate to our heart rate after exercise.   

You can easily check your pulse on the inside of your wrist, below your thumb, or on the side of your neck where your carotid artery is. Gently place 2 fingers, usually your index and middle fingers of your other hand on this artery. Do not use your thumb, because it has its own pulse that you may feel. Count the beats for 30 seconds, and then double the result to get the number of beats per minute. Ex: I counted 36 in 30 seconds so my resting heart rate is 72 beats per minute. Write it down on your sheet of paper. - record it on the table below when you have finished.

Why advertising on T.V is better than the internet

Why Advertising on T.V is better than Advertising on the internet from Room16 Parkvale on Vimeo.

Letter to Mr G

Principal Mark Gifkins
Parkvale School
Howard Street

Dear Mr G,

I'm writing to let you know that Market day was a huge success. I had a great time selling our product which was the frutti tutti dolphins made by our class, room 6 and our buddy class room 3.

It was great to see the big kids working well together with the little kids. The little kids were included in everything by making the product and then selling the product with the big kids.  Big kids were often buddied up with a younger child to help then and support them with choosing what to buy on the day.

It was great for the whole school to do something together with everyone playing a part in making a healthy food snack.  The school has been buzzing with advertising and the excitement of classes making their healthy snack.  The market day was exciting for everyone and a great day with celebrating together.

It was a good idea to have classes market and sell a healthy snack because now they will be more aware of how healthy snacks can be fun and delicious. There were lots of good ideas for healthy snacks and people might start making them at home too.

I think a market day each year is a fantastic idea to bring the school together.

Yours Sincerely
                           Cameron Potts

I was in my bathtub paddling out to sea. After a hour or so I stopped paddling because I had noticed some dark and evil clouds on the horizon and I knew I was in for a surprise...

A STORM!!! I started to turn around but it was too late.I was in the middle of a water spout*. I tried to paddle away but the waterspout was too strong it was sucking me. I started to lift up I had a bad feeling about this. I started to go round and round up and up. I was getting dizzy. As I was going around I could feel the spray of the water on my face. The water was freezing but it kept me awake with my wits about me. When I got to the top I was shot off down towards the water as the impact happened. I woke up startled it was only a dream. That is why you never use a bathtub as a boat.

Adverting Slide Show

Math Challenge

Our Challenge was to make a open box from a 20 cm by 20 cm piece of paper by cutting our four squares in the corners and folding the flaps. We had to make a box hold the biggest volume of box you can make. I made a  box with 3 cm by 3 cm square corner flaps for a practice and then a 1 cm square flaps. Here they are.

This can hold 8x9=72 cubes

This one can hold 6x7=42 cubes

The Best Part of Me

The Best Part of me

The best part about me is my legs. They are long, lean and are built for speed. They are muscular and white with knobbly knees splat, right in the middle of my legs.

My legs carry me around all day, to and from school and all around the place. They race me around many muddy Cross Country courses. They power my bike and shoot me across the pool in a  triathlon.

Other people probably think they look pretty scrawny but they don’t know the power hidden inside. My legs are like my dads and I like them like that.

Interschool Cross Country

Reflection for Interschool Cross Country
Something I was pleased with was coming 17th because I came 48th last year so it was a big improvement.
I really enjoyed learning when I should tailgate when it is a head wind and when it is a tailwind.

Something I found hard was sprinting at the finish.

Something I want to get better at is running.
