# Fun fractions games

In this game you colour flags in halves and quarters.

Some of these questions are fractions of shapes and some are fractions of amounts.

This one is more challenging. You need to find the equivalent fractions of the shapes.

# Alfie’s Dad made us an electromagnet

Wow! Thanks so much.

Alfie explained all about how it worked. Well done Alfie.

# Fraction Fun

What have you discovered about fractions of shapes? How do you find 1/2, 1/4, 1/5 of numbers?

# Fantastic Old Book Art

The work of artist Denise Fiedler:

We have been doing collage pictures with pages of an old book and we used cotton wool  and brown and black paper too. We were inspired by the work of Denise Fiedler.

She creates awesome pictures of cats and dogs.

Look on her website below:

by Dawa, Paddy and Joseph

This is what Callum and Cody wrote for our wall display:

P4/3 Cats and Dogs Collages

We have been very inspired by Denise Fielder. We made cats and dogs like Denise Fiedler’s work. First we drew a dog or cat and put as much detail as we can.

Next you get an old book and rip the pages out. Then you cut it out in the shape you want and stick it on the right bit but you can’t stick the piece on until it’s the right shape.

You can build the collage up with paper and ribbon. That’s how you make Denise Fielder’s art.

Bring a favourite book to share on Monday please.

# Exciting questions to think about for our new learning about Magnets

We looked at the experiences and outcomes for our new topic. From these we thought our topic could be called Magnets, Magnet Science or Magnetic Technology. Wow! That sounds like fun.

What we think we know:

(maybe we’ll change this as we learn)

Adam & Callum: Magnets stick to metal.

Rachael: Magnets can stick to metal.

Paddy: Magnets only stick to metal.

Dawa: If you put a magnet on top of another magnet it will move.

Benny: Magnets come in all shapes and sizes.

Emily: magnets have metal at the bottom to help it stick to metal.

Andrew: They stick together.

Aimee: Magnets don’t stick to beds.

Kayla: If you turn a magnet around they will not stick.

Our questions:

Cody – How do magnets make things stick?

Rachael – How do magnets work?

Sam – How do magnets stick together?

Ruaridh – Do magnets stick to copper?

Callum – What is the force?

Aimee & Joseph – How do magnets get made?

Lucien – Can magnets stick to anything else than metal?

Rana – Why does metal work?

We want to find out:

Lucien: Can you stick magnets to wood?

Callum: How they stick.

Tara: How you make magnets.

Rachael: How do magnets work?

Andrew: How magnets are used.

Experiments we’d like to do:

Benny & Tara: Play with magnets.

Joshua: Get blocks of metal and build a tower. Get some magnets and see what happens.

Emily: Make our own magnets.

Jay: Compare the differences of 2 different magnets by their magnetic force by putting one on top of a table and another on the bottom. Then do it with the other pair of magnets.

Paddy & Callum: see what they stick to.
