We used a compass to write directions to get from one place to another!
Today we were brainstorming where we use fractions. Have a look at our amazon discoveries from our discussion!
To support our engineering space, we ha a workshop today to explore measuring the distance that our paper planes go. Things did not go to plan! We had to discuss variables – what alters the distance of our paper plane distances?
We came up with 3:
* wind / air
We had lots of struggles with the wind! We wondered, what would be the perfect weather conditions to fly a paper plane? After looking at the weather app, we found out that the temperature was 13.5 degrees, it forecasted rain and the wind was traveling at 24km from the west.
Wow! We have been exploring what we can add together to make a whole.
“I used one half and two quarters” Hafiz
“One quarter, two eights and one half” Hussnain
“Six eighths and one quarter” Alison
“You have to have team work making your music” Milan
“We used whole, half, quarters and eighths” Hafiz
“When you’re making your pattern, you need to remember what they all are” Tori
“We found it tricky doing the quarters” Alison
“It was hard!” Joey
Yesterday we went onto Skype to talk to Miss C in Canada – it was so lovely!
Here is a picture that Estelle drew of her and Miss C.
