While some of us revised finding simplifying and finding common denominators, others of us worked on solving a puzzle of equivalent fractions. Well done to the one mathematician who solved the whole puzzle.
We tested the stability of our rockets by:
Flying our pencil-rockets with no fins twice.
Then testing it again twice with fins added to the same pencil-rocket.
We used bead strings, peg boards and writing Dienes blocks (lines and dots) to represent groups of 10 and 1’s.
Here we are demonstrating how you break up a sentence after a noun/pronoun (the two outer pupils) to include a relative clause (the middle pupil). You hold the clause in place using parenthesis (the two uncomfortable pupils almost hugging the nervous one in the middle). Awkward!
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the National Space centre in Leicester. We even saved the world from a deadly comet, which was heading our way. We named it BOLT!
All of them were great, however these are the ones we voted as the best to post on the website.
We explored various setting descriptions, identified features and then created posters of our findings.
We made juggling balls. We selected the pattern we wanted, designed a pattern, cutting, pinning and swing the ball. Then we ironed the pattern that was drawn on using plastic sticks so that it sealed fast.
It worked for some…
Some need finishing…
And for some we had teething problems 🙂
