A Theme Park on the Moon?

This week for Maths we are making a lunar theme park.  We only have 500,000 to spend. We have to decide what rides we can put in are park that will fit into the budget.  There is a twist... we have to pay electricity and staff costs etc. so we need to work out our profits and loss. It's a heap of work but heaps of fun. I hope we can open a Theme Park on the moon one day!   By Claire.

Should students be allowed to miss school to go on holiday?

This week the Captain Underpants reading group were thinking critically about a current event and coming up with their own personal responses.

They weighed up the positives and negatives to the new law change in the UK which bans students from being taken out of school for holidays during the school term.

Every group member sided with the 125,000 people who had signed a petition against this change.

Here is Yuan's response:
"Students should be allowed to miss school so that they can visit their friends or family and explore some interesting places. Also they could learn more about incredible things and write about these in their diary or journal."

What do you think about this new law?
