### The Treasure Map (Maths) - Holiday Homework!

Captain Black-heart buries his treasure but loses his treasure map! But all is not lost. His trusty crew remember different bits of the map.

"I remember drawing it with 5 squares each way", says the Captain. "There was a row of three trees running due East from the square (1,1)", Peg Leg Pete says. "You put each one of them on a different square." "Weren’t there four granite boulders going due South from (5,5)?" John asks. "I think you put one of them each in a square too." "Ah!. Now I remember!" yells the Captain. "I buried the treasure halfway between the first rock and the most western tree!"Where is the treasure?

It’s 7 km from Tim’s house to where his Grandma lives. It’s uphill on the way there so he can only cycle at 14 kph but he can do 21 kph on the way back. Tim leaves his house at 6 pm. How long can he stop at his Grandma’s house if he wants to be back home for his favorite TV programme at 7 pm?

### Room 7 & 9 Experience (Presentation)

Today, in the middle block, Room 7 had the privilege to teach Room 10 and 9 about the brain and the nervous system. My group (Anastacia & Francesca) were welcomed into Miss Smith's class, Room 9 to present to her students. Our group was presenting a presentation based on what we learnt about the brain in our classroom. After we presented our presentation we then go out some play dough for them to make neurons. Neurons are nerve cells. Down below is our presentation.
