We made contour art. We looked at maps and there were lines they are contour lines they tell you how steep the mountain is. The closer the lines are the steeper.
when we were painting them we had a look at contrast colours.
For the last couple of weeks on a Monday we have been getting rugby a rugby coach has been coming in to do it with us.
When we first started everyone was dropping the ball and couldn’t catch it. Now we can do a full game of touch rugby it did take a lot of practise but now everyone understands the rules. Sometimes we play a game where we get split into teams and the first team to get 7 passes without dropping it wins. During that the other team try’s to get the ball whilst it’s in the air. It is so different from what we started like and what we are like now.
We learned how to multiply on an abacus with 1 and 2 digit numbers. We watched a video online and practised until we figured out how to do it. After we told the class how to do it then we went round some maths groups. Then planned our own video explaining how to multiply with 1 and 2 digit numbers.
