25 Word Summary - Fire Station

This is my 25 word summary about the trip to the fire station. In order to write a 25 word summary we typed down 20 important words about the fire station and the things in it. Then we choose 6 most important words from the 20 important words. After that we typed down a summary using those 6 word and some other words for instance "We and Learnt".
I've work collabrativly with Joshua W, Ofa L, Savelina and Brooklyn

Trip To The Fire Station

As part of our inquiry we had trip to the Mt Wellington fire station to learn about how firefighters help or protect the people in our community. I learnt that if there is an fire you have to get low, get out and stay out.  I also learnt that if you call 111 and ask for a ambulance a fire truck will come your location first since they are first responders and they have some first aid kit and also they are trained to be first responders to help the people in our community.

The firefighters also explained to us about how smoke / fire alarms are important to us since they save lives. However if you don't have a smoke alarm and went to sleep you can't smell any smoke and in about three minutes the house will be on fire and you have no way to escape. So make sure that you have a smoke alarm and also make sure that they work.

Then the fireman lead us to the pump truck. He showed us many different equipments like uniforms, hoses, ladders, air bags, blocks, chain saws, hammers, some mechanical tools etc. These tools are used for many situations for instance if a tree fell om top of a car the firefighters use the chain saw to cut the tree. After we had to look at the pump truck the fireman showed us what they do if there is a person trapped in a car in a car crash.

The fire fighters used some various amount of tools to open the car. These are the tools they used...
A cutter and a spreader. They used the cutter to cut some parts of the car and the spreader to open things.
They did all of these things to take the roof off so it is easy to take the trapped person out.

Fire Safety Message - Smoke Alarms

People make smoke alarms for a reason. They make it so that no one gets hurt in a fire. If you don't install a smoke alarm there could be some big consequences. As part of our inquiry we went to the fire station to learn about what fire fighters do to protect and keep the people in the community safe. When we came back we had to create a DLO (Digital Learning Object) saying what you have to do to keep you and your family safe in a fire. It's basically a message to the people around the world.

I've decided to make a DLO on fire alarms and why you need them. Some smoke alarms are very cheap. They're just $5 - $7. You can buy these smoke alarms at numerous stores for instance the Bunnings Warehouse or just the Warehouse. Make sure that you check the smoke alarms once every daylight saving.

Smoke alarms detect smoke and make a beeping noice when it senses smoke. When a smoke alarm beeps you should run out of your house fast and make sure you stay out and call 111 if the fire starts.

Ratio Problem Solving - Sanujan, Ofa, Shakaia and Nazella

This week for maths we were learning about ration problem solving. This was a bit challenging for me because the last question was a bit tricky and took a lot of time to solve. The question that I found easy was question 1 because all we had to do was just to find out how much Ofa collected and AJ had 28.
7x4 = 28 - AJ's | 4x4 = 16 - Ofa's
