We completed out portraits by thinking about the fine detail that we needed to add. Then we created a background in a contrasting colour.
We have been thinking about fractions that are the same.We can see on a fraction wall that 1/2 is the same as 2/4. One third is the same as two sixths. What others can you see?
If we show fractions as a bar model, we can draw them in order to add them together. Remember that the denominator needs to be the same.
This week we have been multiplying. We partition the bigger number into hundreds, tens and ones so that we can simplify the problem into smaller steps.
We have been very busy this week creating self portraits.
We planned our work carefully, thinking about the proportions of our faces and practicing beforehand.
We used our double primary paints to colour mix, making sure that we got the right colours for our skin tones and our facial features.
We made sure that we did not rush and kept looking at ourselves in the mirror as we painted.
We have been using similes as a way to compare objects and emotions.
It means that you have use your imaginations to picture the descriptions, so they are more vivid in your head.
We have been converting millimetres, centimetres and metres. We have measured different lengths and thought about the ways that we can represent the measure
16 mm could also be 1.6 cm
27 cm is also 0.27m. It could also be 270mm.
Verbs are really important to use in our description. Describing how things happen allows your reader to picture the actions clearly.
We described the fight between Macbeth and Macduff in our story.
We wrote a character description of Macbeth. We thought about what he looked like, but more importantly about his personality.
We then wrote in role as the character, describing our thoughts and feelings
We have thought about the different ways that we can subtract.
We can draw the number if we need to, or use the column method.
Sometimes we need to exchange and regroup from the next column if we can’t solve the take away equation.
