Trip to KPMG

 The trip to KPMG!

Yesterday the  year 7 & 8 extension group and a few selected group of year 7’s and 8’s went on a trip to a building called ‘KPMG’ down at the city, we left at 9:00am on a bus to the city. This was however my first time here, each term the extension group and others go down to KPMG. At KPMG we do many things like have a tour around the big building and onto each floor. It was quite a sight, many busy busy people. After touring we ate lunch which was multiple delicious food and did lots of experiments in groups. 

Experiencing this was a fun experience, all the facts we learnt there and this was a great learning opportunity to learn different things about space, working and many more.

The KPMG workers were all very kind and hard workers.

I would love to take another visit next term or perhaps another time!

  • Tombs

                 People in egypt don’t Be put in graves and buried into the ground like usual Instead  they get put into tombs and wrapped in bandages, dead people are stored in tombs. Egyptians believed that once a person dies their spiritual body would continue to live in the afterlife, Tombs used to be dug in the dry desert but however this did not continue because Animals dug up the tombs. 


Since the people of  Egypt had many believes about the afterlife/ etc, in tombs there can be found things such as food, furniture and many other things a person would need in the afterlife.


Flat tombs that are made in Egypt are called mastabas, made out of mud brick or stone.


Mastaba - Wikipedia

Dazzling Decimals

     Dazzling Decimals

We are learning to add and subtract up to three decimal places. We are learning to convert between fractions, decimals and percentages.

What is 244/1000 as a decimal? 0.244

What is 55/100 as decimal? 0.55

What is 12/1000 as a decimal?  0.012

What is ½ as a decimal?  0.5

What is ¼ as a decimal? 0.25

What is ⅕  as a decimal?0.2

What is ⅛ as a decimal? 0.125

0.45 + 0.42 = 0.87

0.56 + 0.17 = 0.73

0.67 + 0.91 = 1.58

0.555 + 0.014 = 0.569

0.7 - 0.45 = 0.35

0.55 - 0.45 = 0.1

0.76 - 0.29 = 0.47

2.5 - 0.78 = 1.72

1.7 - 0.999 = 0.701

0.934 - 0. 244= 0.69

0.944 - 0. 119 = 0.825

50/100 = 50%

1/10 = 10% 

0.4 = 40%

0.05 =5%

0.9 = 90%

Write the following as a decimal, fraction and percentage
