    In Maths we learned about statistics. Some of the things we did were creating bar graphs, stem and leaf graphs and learning how to collect information in a tally chart and then work out what the data is telling us. We designed an inquiry to help us with our brochures. We wrote a question to ask kids our age that live in Pleasant Point. We then used a tally chart with a range of choices to collect our information. Here is an example of one of our questions:

    Reefton has lots of old mines left over from their history of mining. You can go and look at some of the old buildings. There is Big River where you have to take a 4WD to see the old mining village. At Murray’s Creek you can pan for flakes of gold. By Harry

    We used a brochure about Reefton to write an information report. This helped us to really understand the information that we can expect to find in a brochure. Here are some paragraphs from our reports:
    Reefton has lots of things to do. You could go to the Inangahua River and catch a brown trout. Or you could go gold panning at Black Point Museum and find flecks of gold. At Bev’s Doll and Toy Museum you could visit Bev to see her wonderful collection of antique dolls, toys, prams and teddy bears. By Lachlan
