Week in Review for 23/9/10

Lets start with math , this week we concentrated more on multiplication and division and we used something called (BODMAS).

e.g the sum is (4 x 2) + 5 - 3
first you have to write bodmas vertically
then you have to look at the part in brackets e.g (4 x 2)
then do the sum and follow the bodmas rules .
I am going to give an example of a sum i would get.

e.g :
( 7 x 4 ) divided by 2 + 3 - 5
B  7 x 4 = 28
O --------------
D  28 divided by 2 = 14
M we already did the multiplication sum
A  14 + 3 = 17
S  17 - 5 = 12

Bracket  Always do the part in the brackets first
Division - do the division and join the answer to the first one
Multiplication - do the multiplication sum and join the answer to the answer in the sum before it
Addition - do the addition sum and join the answer to the answer in the sum before it
Subtraction - do the subtraction sum and join it to the last answer to make the total


In english we were doing poetry , every different kind of poetry free verse , diamante and many more.
we had to write more than 7 poems for homework and then Mr .lowe told us to practice saying them so that we could record them with no hesitation. Some people might be asking why we are recording them. We are recording them so the poems could be spread on the internet.
most of us are embarrassed but we'll get over it soon.
in music we are looking at an african song.But before that we were looking at the song called under the sea we had to sing it to the beat and keep up the tune.Then we played this very nice game that has something to do with croches and cuavers every time miss lala pointed at us we had to clap our name in the correct musical beats.
i enjoyed this week and i hope others did too.
Thanks Z!

Week in Review for 16/9/10

In Maths we learned about brackets. Mr L taught us an easy way to solve a sum. It's called Bodmas. B stands for brackets, O stands for order, D stands for division, M stands for multiplication, A stands for addition and S stands for subtraction. In Music we learned where the notes go. We also chanced a song.Ms Lala told us the names of the notes. In swimming we are learning front crawl. At the end of the lesson we had freetime. In French we are learning about the world.We learned how to say the continents in French. In English we are learning about Poems.We have learned a lot about poems.We learned about acrostic poems and we learned how to write poems. In Inquiry we are learning about traditions and culters. We are researching about teraditions and cultures from three countries. It's very interesting. We had a great week.

Great Job F!

Week in Review for 9/9/10

This week we learned about lots of things. In math we learned about inverse operations rounding decimals, rounding and ordering decimals. In rounding decimals what we learned was obviously rounding decimals and it depends on the number whether to round up or down and I learned a new stratagy to find out what would the number be if I was rounding up what would be in between.When we were doing inverse operations today we well I learned that there can be patterns in inverse operations and that (I already knew this but other people might have not known) that the opposite of - is +and the opposite of x is division. Finally we learned about rounding and ordering decmials I don't remember exactly what we did but also obviously we learned about rounding and ordering decimals. In Inquiry each one of us did a title page about cultures, religions and so on. On my title page I put the flag, a cross, the muslim sign and all my writing was in a bubbly font. In P.E. we were focasing on playground games so we did hopscotch and in swimming some people well most of our class were disapionted because everyone was put in a lower or two lower groups. Its going to be a surprise for me (when I get better) to know what group I'm going to be in. I think that this year will be a awesome year and by the end of it we will be computer experts.

Thanks M!
