Earthquake's and their Data

This term in Science, we are looking at Natural Geological events, which is a scientist's way of saying that we are looking at Earthquakes, Volcanoes and Tsunami's. The Earth's surface is always moving because of its structure. The continents of the world sit on plates. When these plates move they cause tremors and Earthquakes.

We took the opportunity in Mathematics, to look at how these are recorded by Scientists. The information is used to help predict earthquakes. We discussed the magnitude of Earthquakes and then used this information to create a graph. The activity is below:

It was a challenge to decide on which graph to use but everyone came up with some great results:

Some students chose to complete their data using a Word Document 

What was the most interesting fact that you learnt about Earthquake Data? How well did you create a table using Data from Earthquakes?

Wow, this project looks very cool and interesting, hope that the children had fun doing this. And I miss my childhood very much after seeing this, that there were so many good and fun assignments. But now we have to do boring law assignments, which is why I opt for best law essay writers online to get my work done.
Our team works 24/7 to provide quality assistance in front of your queries like, pay someone to write my research paper for me?” in a convenient manner.

Quite an informative post – but I have to say, the author could have done a better job with the title. I am a blogger myself, and when I can’t think of a good title I take the help of a blog title generator tool. But, I never settle for a boring title. Anyway, I appreciate the research behind this post and wish you all the best for the future.

While a compartment is a smaller than normal virtual machine for streamlined facilitating and dealing with the existence pattern of applications, Kubernetes is a holder the executives apparatus created by Google engineers, as referenced in the authority Kubernetes blog. Google was one of the principal enterprises to report moving its work into holders freely. To put it plainly, Kube assists with working on holder errands, back carrying out and returning, and guarantee even auto-scaling. This assists with smoothing out the turn of events, testing, and organization of pipelines in DevOps, so K8 is a mainstream arrangement among DevOps specialists. Organizations that need to improve CI/CD and lessen advancement expenses and security chances normally hire a DevOps Kubernetes specialist. In the cutting edge world, the speed of all work measures turns into a main concern for framework or item advancement. Simultaneously, regardless of its intricacy, trouble, and volume, any program or framework should work rapidly and constantly, and all groups should rapidly discover and address blunders and do refreshes progressively. It is to tackle this issue that DevOps exists. DevOps is an unpredictable procedure for creating and advancing software improvement, which is turning into an indispensable piece of operational cycles in huge undertakings and partnerships. DevOps unites improvement and tasks, planning to augment cooperation and combination of programming, testing, and item or administration organization. According to the Microsoft depiction, Azure DevOps is a cloud arrangement by the Microsoft organization that permits building software quicker and better, teaming up on code creation, and putting together work adequately. All Azure DevOps administrations are open and extensible, making them ideal for an application, paying little heed to climate and stage. They can be utilized all together DevOps arrangement or independently with different administrations. A Kubernetes Azure DevOps expert is a cloud foundation engineer that assists with computerizing conveyance and joining administrations, controls Kube arrangement, and works with Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS). An Azure DevOps Kubernetes engineer master is liable for executing adaptable and savvy cloud arrangements. An AWS engineer with Kubernetes information works with Amazon Web Services, another cloud supplier that permits making a limitless number of use bunches. Also, an AWS engineer with Kubernetes can make scripts for support and sending with Docker, Jenkins, and so forth As per Amazon, an AWS Kubernetes engineer experience permits making incredible combinations to AWS administrations like VPC, IAM, with the security, adaptability, and high accessibility of Amazon Web Services. Check here for more information. Such experts frequently work in a group with Java trained professionals and give APIs to convey information required for the UI. A Kubernetes DevOps AWS engineer is an expert with a restricted specialization, generally working with compartments and unchanging framework.

Positive and Negative Space

Stare at the white dot for 10 seconds, then look at Van Gogh's Starry Night below. — Google Facts (@GoogleFacts) August 5, 2017 When creating a picture or artwork, positive and negative space both need to be considered. What is the positive and negative space? Look closely at the following picture: It shows the space between the faces takes on a shape. This is negative, while the faces themselves are positive shapes. What do you see in the following pictures? In your Art diary complete the following:  Draw an example design of positive and negative Art then explain Positive and Negative Art.  Positive and Negative Artworks.  To understand Positive and Negative Art better we will be creating an Artwork like the examples below:  This artwork also uses the concepts of translation, rotation and reflection which you have been exploring in Mathematics. Can you see how these are used in the shapes ab

An Award Winning Term

Our cross country team ran their best and showed great sportsmanship. Merit Award winners were given for effort at our recent Gala Day and for Science. The first our Silver Behaviour Awards.

It's always fantastic to be able to share our students achievements and recognise their efforts. 

Creating and making with textiles

This term, we have been looking at using textiles as a medium for creativity. Using wool or natural fibres to create something wearable is an ancient art. Some of the best memories that I have, when growing up was of creating felt and dyeing fabrics. This was the inspiration for the project for my Creativity project. After approaching our agricultural department for some raw alpaca fleece, the first step was to was this very dirty fleece. This was dirty, but a lot of fun! After it had dried, we dyed the wool and then felted it. The felting process takes a lot of work, hot water and soap. It requires the wool to be placed into a tea towel after it was carded to get rid of the rest of the dirt. There was a lot of enthusiasm to have a go. Rubber gloves were essential to protect little hands! This took much longer than anticipated so we have used purchased felt to make our creations The next step was to learn to sew using a needle and thread. To help this pro
