This week is Math’s Week! We applied our numeracy and scientific skills when learning about light and shade. We went to the playground throughout Wednesday and drew a line to show the length and position of our shadows. We then measured the lines and the angles between each one. We sketched the movement of our shadows in class, again using a protractor to measure the angles. We then debated the reasons our shadows change in this way through the day.
Over the last two weeks we have been looking at the All About Me topic in a different way. We decided to learn about ourselves and each other in maths. We measured our height, our stride, our head circumference and our arm span. When Mrs Horne said we were going to put our results into graphs Shravan asked if we could do a graph looking at height and age. We made a scatter plot to see if there was a trend. We thought height might increase with age but there was no link between the two. We also mader a graph using excel.
In art we looked in more detail at our shoes creating line drawings with pencils. We used shading to show the shape of the shoe and if it was darker in some bits.
I enjoyed P.E. outside this week. I learned about dribbling and demonstrated the skills we were learning. I also enjoyed science. We have been making electric circuits and will be looking more into how they work soon!
I enjoyed writing. It was part of All About Me. I wrote about my personality and my strongest subjects and the ones I need more help in.

This week we have been learning how to convert improper fractions into mixed numbers and vice versa.
