P5b Learning Log 6.2.17

MATHS

This week we have been busy doing some more about time. We had to look at the written time and then say what time it would be in the time trail after we added more time to the starting point. Our challenge was to make up our own time trail for a partner to solve. Our group also did 3 digit addition to get to an amount already written.

Metaphors and Similes – Literacy

We were using similes and metaphors to make posters.  Similes are  saying something is like or as something else. ( e.g. Tom is as slow as a turtle.) A metaphor is saying something is something else but not literally. ( e.g. time is money.) We made a blurb using similes and metaphors. The blurb was about a scary incident that happened to us.

Health and Wellbeing

We were being food detectives. We learnt that our daily sugar limit is 24 grams. Too much sugar may cause diabetes or some cancers or heart disease. We looked at the sugar in different food with a sugar smart app.

Art

We are each taking a piece of a Japanese painting and creating a class mural. We are looking at line shape and colour. We are learning to sketch our pictures before painting them with water colours.
