Students realised that by squaring the circle’s radius, the resulting square ‘fits’ in the circle less than 4 times. Which number that we have been working with is somewhere less than 4 times? Well Pi of course or 3.14. From here students deduced that the formula for working out the area of the circle itself is the raduis x radius x pi…or pi.r(squared). In deriving the formula themselves students understand the area of a circle much deeper and can now try an estimating strategy to see if they get around the same answer!
Do you find the minutes in the day go too quickly and you simply don’t have enough time for yourself? Well join us for a morning of fun and engaging hands on activities that allow you time to think about strategies to appreciate the positive aspects in your life. We will be guided by information and activities from Positive Education and discuss the type of language and activities used by staff and students at Holy Family. Some activities and topics covered will include:
- Having gratitude for everyday events

- Taking care of yourself
- Looking for positive specks of gold (even in the most challenging of days!)
- Information about Positive Education

This is my ten word poem.
Today we explored the poem “The Uncertainty of the Poet” by Wendy Cope. The class created their own poems by using 10 words and changing the location of where each word is in the sentence. We have seen some fantastic examples!
