Week 4 – Solving Problems, Shadows and Smashing Stories

Yet another busy week where we have been explaining how we can solve multiplication and division word problems using bar modelling.

We have been solving scaling problems- times bigger or times smaller than. We can find different ways to make a total using 2 different times tables and prove it using bars or rods. We also used Thinking Blocks  on the iPad.

In science we looked at shadows and used technical vocabulary like opaque and transparent in our reasoning. We then made portrait silhouettes which look very effective.

We have started our first drafts of our 500 Word stories.

Our recorder playing is definitely improving …

As is our Squash. Because we missed a lesson last week we have another 3 more lessons continuing next term.
