This week in maths we have been learning about perimeter and area. I learned that to find the area of a rectangle you have to multiply the length and breadth. To find the perimeter you add all the sides together.
Also on Thursday we went to the Risk Factory for the whole day. We worked through 10 different scenarios and learned about the risks involved. I learned a lot. One of the things I learned was that if you go under lots of hay it could fall on you and you could suffocate.
I need to keep working on area and perimeter because I keep getting them confused!
This week I enjoyed the Risk Factory because I learned a lot and I want to go back and do it again!

This week in maths I have enjoyed doing the square maths with the Maths Students (experts). I enjoyed this activity because I liked finding the squares inside of a 3 by 3 square but it was made out of dots
.. .. .. Just like that and you would draw as many squares
.. .. .. as you could but the squares have to be different
.. .. .. or it won’t count. After that we got these little squares and we made pictures with them and I made a big mac. I also made a word and all it said was ‘Smile’ because I think if you smile then you won’t have any worries in life.
On Monday we had P.E with Mrs Gray I really enjoyed it because I love P.E and right now we’re doing athletics because we have sports hall athletics and I made the team for the competition. On Wednesday with Mrs McLaughlin we practised the events and then we found out who made the team. Today we had a treat because Miss Milne’s class had an Energy workshop so we got their P.E time with the S6 Leaders. We played basketball, which was great fun!
It was a good week.

This week in maths we learned about perimeter. Perimeter is the distance around the edge of a shape. To work out the length of it you have to measure the sides and add the numbers up. I understand how to find the perimeter of regular and irregular shapes.
In science I have learned what micro-organisms are. They are as the name says tiny (micro) living things (organisms). There are 3 main kinds of micro-organisms: viruses, bacteria and fungi. We are making a flap book about it.
This week a man from SSPCA come in to tell us about his job. He told us some stories about looking after and caring for animals. At the end we played a card game where he asked us questions about the animals and I won most of the cards.
This week I enjoyed art with Mrs Firth even though we didn’t do much. We are making a world map, everyone got a bit to draw. I got Europe. I am looking forward to carrying on with this next week.
