# P7b Learning Logs Aug – Dec 16

 September     2016 In maths Primary 7 have been working on shape and angles. They were inspired by Kandinsky’s Composition VIII to create their own art which included circles, triangles, lines and a selection of angles.

 ART In art we have been looking at Op Art which is a style of art that uses optical illusion. In maths, we have been studying the properties of circles. We drew our circles using pairs of compasses which was quite tricky for some of us!

 SAMBA DRUMMING When I heard about the samba drumming, I wasn’t excited but it was actually great fun. My drum was a smallish tall drun called a High Surdo which made a low sound. I enjoyed the samba drumming because it was fun and diverse. I also considered joining the samba drumming club but I am busy at the time it starts. Overall I enjoyed this. Rowyn I was really excited to get a chance to do the samba drumming. The tutors were Rohan and Steve and they were really nice. The drum I played was the Casha, a Brazilian drum. I think I participated really well. My ability to follow the tutors while playing the Casha was great. I enjoyed it so much. I’m starting the drum club. Olivia I was playing the Low Surdo. It was really good because I’ve only ever played the drum twice. It was the biggest drum there! I had to play a beat. The beat was Scotland 10 Germany 1. I liked Rohan the best. It was really loud and really fun. I loved it. All the drums were different colours and Arwen had her own.

# P4a Learning Log September 2016

 This week we wrote our Weekly Reviews on the computers. We were using Word and changing the size, font and colours and also adding designs. Some of us used Clicker on the ipad for our work. Snippets from our Weekly Reviews – ‘This week I learned how to make a 3d cube. We put Op Art designs on it.’ Alfred ‘This week I have learned in my maths group more about arrays because I knew just a little bit about arrays. Now I know a lot more.’ Lainey ‘This week I learned about Optical Illusions and Dazzle. We made cool models.’ Marc ‘I want to find more about the Dazzle Ship designs because I like to learn about HISTORY! I love history.’ Charlotte ‘This week I didn’t like Big Writing because I’m not good at poetry because I’m not Robert Burns.’ Joey (I think this sentence shows you have good writing skills and a sense of humour which can be good for poetry. – Miss B.)

I was good at learning about women in world war one. I can show this because I know a lot about Lenah Higbee. For example; she was the first female to have a ship named after her [USS Higbee]. I learnt a bunch in this lesson. Did you know that Lenah Higbee was the first person to be given a navy cross? Three words I would use to tell you about it are interesting, loud and noisy.

I want to get better at multiplying four digit numbers by one digit numbers I can tell this because I need to practice reading the equations. I can help myself try to learn by reading more sums. [5664X4=] I think you can see why I struggle.
