Data collection

Today we have been using IT to collect data. We asked and answered questions based on the learning we are doing in Maths, Literacy and Topic work. Once we had answered the questions, we collected the data from the answers and compared results.

Do you know what 9 x 4 is?

Swimming

Today Class 5 went swimming for the second time. We practised lots of different skills in the water including: floating, blowing into the water, swimming on our front and back, and submerging in the water.

Everybody made great progress. What is your favourite stroke?

Comparing our differences.

Today we discussed what it means to be different to somebody else. The class decided that it is good to be different and that we all like different things. We wrote down what we liked and then compared this with other people.

What are your favourite things to do?

 

Addition daily mile.

After completing our maths on addition using different methods, Class 5 went outside and took part in an addition mile. The pupils questioned each other adding multiples of 10 or 100 to a 3 digit number.

Can you mentally solve 692 + 700?

Cricket

Today we have been busy practising our cricket skills. We used overarm and underarm techniques to throw the ball at a target. We worked in teams and played relay games.

What is your favourite sport?

Finding the equator and the tropics.

In our Topic work this week we have been identifying the areas of the world in which rainforest will grow. We coloured in a map to show where the rainforests of the world can be. They can only grown between the two tropics.

Can you name any of the countries which have rainforest?
