What is a TARDIS?
TARDIS stands for Time and Relative Dimension in Space
The TARDIS can travel to any point in all of time and space and is bigger on the inside than the outside due to trans-dimensional engineering – a key Time Lord discovery. It has a library, a swimming pool, a large boot room, an enormous chamber jammed with clothes and many more nooks, crannies and secrets just waiting to be discovered…
Just like the Doctor, the TARDIS tends to stand out a bit. Its exterior should change to blend in with its surroundings, conforming to a new environment within a moment of arriving there, but this handy facility was lost years ago when its chameleon circuit developed a fault.
The same goes for the distinctive wheezing-groaning sound the ship makes when arriving or dematerialising. According to River Song, if the brakes weren’t left on the cacophony wouldn’t happen, but the Doctor called it ‘…a brilliant noise!’ adding defensively, ‘I love that noise!’
The TARDIS is sturdier than it appears and has survived missile attacks, extreme temperatures, gunfire, alien onslaughts and even the assembled hordes of Genghis Khan couldn’t get through its doors – and they’ve tried. So, the ship is ancient and remarkable, endures as an icon of hope and remains harder to defeat than many would first imagine.

We are currently working in groups to build solar powered robots, cars and helicopters. It has been challenging because the instructions are quite complex. Thank goodness the sun is out today to power our machines.
Today we are exploring Probability. We will be exploring outcomes of chance experiments involving equally likely outcomes and represent probabilities of those outcomes using fractions.
We rolled a dice 100 times and recorded the data we collected. We then used this data to make statements using decimal fractions.
We recorded the information we found on Explain Everything.
A big thank you to all the amazing students in Grade 3/4. You are all very special people who when you apply yourself can achieve anything that you want.
Persuasive texts use the resources of modality. It is actually an easy concept because we use modality all the time, especially in everyday speech. Modality helps the speaker or writer take a position of high, medium or low, in relation to the topic.
