Making pie charts in Room 13

Room 13 were painting during yesterday’s Maths lesson! Each pod came up a question to collect data on.  They then surveyed the class to collect their data. They then created and painted Pie Charts to represent this data. Check out our display on the top corridor to learn what our favourite subjects are, which class novels we’ve enjoyed most this year, to learn which projects we’ve enjoyed doing and lastly, what the most preferred PE activity is!

Debating in Room 13

In order to learn how to use persuasive language, Room 13 prepared for Pod Debates. Each pod was split into two teams and given a motion. We drafted and redrafted our speeches until we felt confident enough to engage in a debate with the opposition/proposition.
The four motions were as follows:
-School should start later.
-Uniforms are unnecessary.
-It would be good to be famous.
-Lunchtime should be longer.
Many thanks to Room 14 who were a wonderful audience. They listened intently and brought a lot to the experience by asking questions and voting to decide which team won.
In advance, we felt nervous. However, the debates were thoroughly enjoyable to watch and be a part of and there were many interesting and unplanned moments caused by interruptions from the other team with points of information!
