Sports Day Practise

This morning we have been practising for sports day.

We are excited to take part in the different events tomorrow and compete in our different house teams!

Barcode Investigation

This morning we have been investigating barcodes. A barcode is a visual, machine-readable representation of data; the data usually describes something about the object that carries the barcode.

We have learnt about what the different numbers on the barcode mean and how to use a formula to calculate and create barcodes.

Next time you see a barcode, see if you can figure out the formula!

Dilemma Books – Legends

Today we have turned our legend story plans into our dilemma books.

We have used the format to allow the reader to make choices as they go along.

We enjoyed reading each other’s stories and sharing ideas!

Translations, rotations and reflections

This morning we have been looking at patterns using translations, rotations and reflections.

We used the ideas on the sheet at first before creating some of our own.

Can you spot any patterns that use translations, rotations or reflections?

Legend Stories

This morning, we have been using our dilemma book template to plan a legend of our own.

We have used to template to allow the reader to make choices. After we finished our plan we read through them to check if anything needed editing or improving.

We are looking forward to writing our legend stories!

Myths and Legends

This week we have been looking at the differences between myths and legends.

These were some of our ideas.

 

We used this information to create a table showing the similarities and differences. We are looking forward to planning our own legend stories this week.

Do you know any myths or legends?

Tessellation!

This morning we have been exploring tessellation. We learnt that tessellation is a repeated pattern that fills an area with no gaps in between. Do you know what tessellation is?
