Measurement for Design

Many changes are taking place on the site of our new building and it is creating many opportunities for our Inquiry expert groups to talk about the design and building process.

Four Middle students attended a site meeting on Tuesday, representing each of our design expert groups (Furniture Design, Building and Architecture, Landscaping and Interior Design). Zylis and Yenuli reflected on their experience:

Guess what!? We explored more about the new building and got to go into the construction site! We went to see what the builders were doing.

There is a little problem with the construction because there’s a giant rock. Geraldine told Staash, Lynelle, Yenuli and Zylis that there once was a volcano right here. That’s what made the giant rock. To be honest, it was a lot of fun. We asked a lot of questions.

A lot of exciting things that are going to happen in the school future are stuck in our heads because it’s too exciting get out!!

We had a conversation with the architect, Rachel, and the builder, Johnny! We talked about all the different materials and durability we will have for the building!

As you have seen, the garden near the rock bed is fenced off, but don’t worry, it will be built back up again.

We are also making some great links with Measurement in Inquiry Mathematics sessions. We are learning to measure length and width using formal units (like centimetres and metres), as well as focusing on the perimeter of our learning space.
