Maths problem

It’s 7km from Tim’s house to where his Grandma lives.

but he can do 21 kph on the way back.
Tim leaves his house at 6pm.
How long can he stop at his Grandma’s house if
he wants to be back home for his favourite
TV programme at 7pm?

So Tim has an hour to travel back and forth to
his grandma’s house with in an hour as well as his
spending time with nana.
30 mins on his way their = 14kph
20 mins on his way back = 21 kph
10 mins with Nana
It took Tim longer to get to his Nena’s house because
he was travelling uphill on a slower speed.

Recounts are awesome. Your experiences can be told in words to capture your readers and take them on a journey with you.
Task - Write a recount about the worst birthday you have ever had
To be honest, I’ve never experienced having a bad birthday. Each year, on my birthday I get to celebrate it with my family which I’m grateful for.  I wouldn’t recall a time having a boring birthday.

Speech writing is a very valuable skill. When you have the ability to write speeches you can argue your way through your words. Lawyers do that all the time.
Task - Write a one minute speech about one of these topics
  • Teachers should be paid more money
Teachers should be paid more because teachers do a lot of hard work. It even gets up to a stage where they stress because it’s to much, but they are willing to help us kids succeed in life and for our future. Adding on to that, teachers don’t get enough money for what they’re dealing with. Becoming a teacher is a handful because without the teachers there will be no future for us.

  • We should have a Mcdonalds restaurant at every school
I don’t think there should be a Mcdonalds because it’s unhealthy for the kids. Mcdonalds have a lot of fat food, this can cause kids to be obese. Kids should stick to eating healthy and it will help us focus at school. Eating the right food will help us learn even better.

  • Driving skills should be taught at primary school
No I go against this. I go against this because I think primary kids are to young to be driving around. Driving should start at a certain age because by then you’ll be much mature. Right now, primary kids should just be focusing on their school life before jumping into wanting to drive.

  • Glenbrae School should have no uniform
In my opinion I think this shouldn’t occur. This is because having our uniform makes us look smarter. And we can be a smart school. Not wearing uniform makes us not look tidy and how all schools should be. To conclude this wearing your uniform shows pride to your school.

  • Every student should have a free day off school each week

This event shouldn’t happen because kids need to come to school everyday and learn, not unless they have a valid reason to come off school. But I highly recommend coming to school as it would benefit us and our future.
