Tech (New Rotation)

Today for tech we had our new rotations. For the year 8's we had graphics. The first thing we did at graphics was make a collage of all of our favourite things. Example my favourite TV Show is The Flash. We then found out that we were going to make our own clocks. We then had to create a drawing and put images of different types of clocks.

Today for dance we were focusing on angular shapes. We started off by practising our warm ups. We then got one group to volunteer and show their warm ups. After our warm up, Dallas and I had to come up with angular shapes. We came up with our shapes from a video. We had to study their moves and try and copy it. We managed to get pretty far. I really enjoyed this weeks session because we had to make our own creative movements.

Metaphor - DLO

This morning for writing we were finding and matching the correct sentences. A metaphor is like a simile but it doesn't use as or like. I really enjoyed this activity because it challenged me by looking really hard to find the metaphor in the sentences.

This morning LS2 had dance. We were learning about shapes and levels. We learnt that a levels are high medium and low. We also learnt about curved and angular shapes. We also learnt what free flow is. It is when you let yourself go loose and move. After we had learnt about new dances, we partnered up with someone and tried them ourselves. The next thing we did was try and make a circle, triangle and square dance out of it. I really enjoyed our dance lesson today.

World Of Maths

Yesterday afternoon we had World of Maths. We were put into groups then given a piece of paper and pencil. After that we started a activty. My groups first activity was the maze. We had a magnet and it connected to the ball. We managed to finish that really fast. My favourite activity was the shadow's rule again activity. We had to measure the how long the power pole's shadow was. The smaller shadow was 2 meters long and the other was 20 meters long. There was a small one and a big one. We had to figure out how many times the bigger one was to the smaller one. My team was struggling on this question but at the end we managed to get the correct answer. Once we had got our number we had to times it by 2. I really enjoyed this activity because involved times tables. Thanks to Charles for organising all of this.

This is my DLO of an est word cline. We had to come up with words that have est either in the middle beginning or end. After that we had to find new words on the internet and write it down. The last activity we did was a word cline. A word cline start with a boring word and as the words the go up the more interesting the words are.

This morning in LS2 we started our dance lessons. We first had to find out what a warm up is. A warm up is a mini workout. It gets your body ready to go. It helps you get your blood flow going. It helps you focus and ready. It is important to warm up before you do a physical activity. This is because warming up avoids you from getting injuries. A very long warm up is not good so, keep it simple. The first thing we did was follow a video tutorial on a warm up. The next thing we did was a bit more challenging. We had to buddy up and make up our own warm up exercise. My partner was Dallas. We then had to find a song. We then had to practise our warm while listening to the song. After that we had to go to another pair and show them our warm up. Their feed forward to us was make our exercise longer.

Doubling and Halving - Problem Solving

This is my DLO on Doubling and Halving. We had a list of questions we had to answer. We could only use the doubling and halving strategy to answer it. My opinion on the doubling and halving strategy is that it is useful for numbers less than 500. I would recommend a different strategy for really big numbers.

Chunky Challenge - Ight

Today for reading we had to do the chunky challenge. Today our word was ight. Unfortunately we couldn't find any words starting with it but did find it in the middle and at the end. After we had finished typing the words we had to use a word from the list turn it into a simple sentence, compound sentence and then into a complex sentence.
