World of Maths

Yesterday LS1 and LS2 went to the hall for a maths program called World of Maths. The World of Maths program was run by a man called Charles. When we got into the hall we were split into groups and each group got to do a fun maths activity. The people apart of my group were Jack and Peter. We worked together and used the Key Competencies. The Key Competencies are thinking, relating to others, using language, symbols and text, managing self and participating. The first game we played was called Follow Me. That was my favourite game because we started with a word then it is all scrambled and we had to find out the secret sentence. The sentence was Maths is fun.

Chunky Challenge Word Art

Today I have completed my reading activity. There are three parts to it. First we had to complete the Chunky Challenge presentation. This week the chunk was est. So I had to find words I already know that have est at the start, in the middle and at the end. After that I had to find words I don't know about that have est in it. The second part was where I had to write a simple, compound and complex sentence and there needed to be at least one est word in it. The last part is where I had to choose one out of four activities to do. I decided to make a word cloud using a site I know.

Today LS2 had our first dance session. We were learning about warm ups. A warm up is something you do to prepare yourself for an activity. Warm ups are important to warm your muscles. We watched a video of a man doing warm ups. After we watched the video we had to go and partner up. I was working with Daniel. We had to come up with our own warm up routines.. With our partners we had to find some warm up videos online to get some ideas. We could also find some music to go with our warm up. The part I enjoyed was showing other groups our routines. I need to practice on being in time with my partner.
