# P7a September 2016 Learning Logs

 Thursday 22nd September 2016 In maths we have been learning about bearings. I have learned what a bearing is and you need to know what the angle is to know the bearing. Here is an example, angle : 45 degrees, bearing : 045 degrees.  The bearing always has to be measure clockwise from North and have 3 digits. It is important that I know this because I will need to know what the bearing of an angle is.  My next step is to be able to use bearings to read a map. In PE I have learned how to do a small rally with someone that is the same level as me. Also, I got a trophy for improving the most in our racquets block in PE.  It is important that I know this because if I am in a real game I know how to do a rally. My next steps are to do a longer rally.  My highest score is 20 with Millie. By Sarah

 Thursday 15th September 2016 This week in Maths we were learning about 8 point rose compasses. I learnt that in between North, South, East and West there is North East, North West, South East and South West. It is important that I know this so that if I am lost I know the directions on a compass or if I have to do this again. My next steps are to be able to read and follow directions with an eight point compass. This week in Daily Mile we were working on stamina and good pacing. Good pacing is important because you need to be able to be able to run for a long time and not get too tired. Stamina is important because it keeps you going for a long time. My next steps are to be able to run a bit faster and for longer. By Erin

 Thursday 8th September 2016 In maths I have learned how to identify angles using the names acute, obtuse, right, straight and reflex.  I have also learned how to measure angles using a protractor. In P.E I learned how to do a drop shot in badminton.  A drop shot is when you hit the shuttle just over the net and when your opponent is far away from the net and if they get to it you can do the smash shot the smash shot is when you hit the shuttle really hard to the ground. In our topic we are learning about the Dazzle Ships and Leith docklands. In enjoyed going to the computer suite to play sum dog because it helps you to get better at your maths. By Kamran

 Thursday 1st September 2016 In maths this week I have learned how to use a protractor to draw an angle. It is important I know how to do this because we need to learn how to measure things in the future when I get a job. My next steps are to be able to draw a reflex angle. In Literacy this week I have learned about different types of VCOP. It is important I know this because if we are going to get a job we need to know how to use good vocabulary and punctuation correctly. My next steps are to up-level my work using good VCOP. by Millie
