12 September
This week your homework is based on the Rugby World Cup.
In your homework book:
• You need to find a Rugby World Cup picture that shows a person doing an action word that we used in dance last week. E.g. Fend, Tackle or Haka etc
• Once you find a picture you will give it a new title and a caption.
• The caption will explain who, what, where, and when in the picture.
• Be creative, and have fun!

Don’t forget your spelling and maths sheet!

Hi Room 13
I've found some bridges you might be interested in:

Seoul’s Banpo Bridge Turns into Gigantic Fountain
The Banpo Bridge which crosses over the Han River in the Seoul capital of Korea has been given new life with the addition of a very interesting fountain, that was specially designed to attract more tourists.
The fountains at the Banpo Bridge were installed on September ninth and have since become a major tourist attraction.The bridge has turned into a major tourist attraction. It has nearly 10 thousand nozzles ( more exactly 9, 380 ) on either side of the bridge that shoots out 190 tons of water every minute. According to the Seoul mayor, Oh Se-Hoon, the fountain bridge would help acknowledge Seoul as an eco-friendly destination amassing more tourists.

Gateshead Millennium Bridge

The award winning $44 million Gateshead Millennium Bridge is the first and only tilting bridge in the world. Hydraulic rams at each end of the bridge allow it to tilt so small ships may pass through, and it is this innovative technology which won its designers the prestigious Stirling Prize for architecture in 2002. Thanks to the 19,000 tonnes of concrete poured into 98ft deep foundations and enough steel to build 64 double decker buses, the bridge can withstand a collision with a 4,000 tonne ship moving at 4 knots.

The Falkirk Wheel

The Millennium Link was an ambitious £84.5m project with the objective of restoring navigability across Scotland on the historic Forth & Clyde Canal and Union Canal, providing a corridor of regenerative activity through central Scotland.
A major challenge faced, was to link the Forth and Clyde Canal, which lay 35m (115ft) below the level of the Union Canal. Historically, the two canals had been joined at Falkirk by a flight of 11 locks that stepped down across a distance of 1.5km, but these has been dismantled in 1933, breaking the link.
What was required was a method of connecting these two canals by way of a boat lift. British Waterways were keen to present a visionary solution taking full advantage of the opportunity to create a truly spectacular and fitting structure that would suitably commemorate the Millennium and act as an iconic symbol for years to come.
The resultant, perfectly balanced structure that is The Falkirk Wheel, the world’s first and only rotating boat lift.

Mr. Woody's house

Hey guys I have a problem and I was wondering if you could help me.

Mr. Woody said I won’t be able to pass my student teaching practicum unless I paint his house. It’s going to be a big job and I will need a lot of paint.

I know that one 20 liters bucket will cover an area of 4 meters by 4 meters and I will need three coats.

All three doors are 1 meter by 1.8 meters and the windows are 1 meter by 1 meter, so I can subtract these from the wall area as they won’t need painting.

This is the house (not to scale)

This is a Rear view of the house.

If you have any questions, please ask me.

Oh and write you answers down in your math’s book so we can discuss it all together. (don’t post them here, we don’t anyone to steal your thunder and copy your answers)

Did I mention there would be a reward for all those who help me?

Good luck!
