Our attendance this week was 93.6% 

We, we finally finished our “Space” shopping centre project – we discovered how to find the profit we could make based on different configurations of visitors arriving and paying to park in the carpark(s).  We also realised that the number of facilities where customers could spend their money had a direct impact on the amount of profit we made as they would generate the greatest costs but also generate the greatest interest to our customers.  This is really helping us as we begin a new project – building a theme park where we have £500,000 to spend on the design and build element.

In English this week, we have continued with the writing theme – we researched the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb by Howard Carter.  Once we had discovered lots of information about this, we were given the task of writing it in the form of a newspaper article.  Now we have finished drafting and redrafting our articles, we have begun to type them up using word so that we can write in columns and include photographs with captions.

This week, our handshakes total was 5 – a bit disappointing, especially when compared with the total earned by Miss Footitt’s class.

Our Star of the Week this week is Kyle.  I have been really impressed with the persistence that you have shown in reating your space shopping centre and the way you have worked with a partner to begin your work on your theme park. Continue to work hard and you will reap the rewards.
