Mathematical Me

This week we have been using string to measure how tall we are. It was interesting to find out that the width of our arm span, was the same as our height. My partner and I had a lot of fun doing all the measurements, including that your height is 7x the length of your foot.

Poem - Juxtaposition

Summer:
In the morning I wake up and feel the sun streaming through the window.
I walk to school and hear the birds chirping happily.
People laugh and smile walking cheerfully.
I reach the school gates feeling relaxed and
delighted.

Winter:
In the morning it’s cold,Winter is back again.
I walk to school with numb hands and feet
The ally way is dark and dreary,
The leaves fall from the trees.
I reach the school gates feeling tired and gloomy.

This is my summer and winter poems they both tell you how I fell in summer walking to school and in winter walking to school they were a bit confusing. We were also looking at Juxtaposition how it contrast two words that have been placed together

How to use a protractor

This is a DLO on how to use a protractor. You will need to figure out where the center of the protractor is, next figure out where the lines go and then measure from the zero. When you measure the number / line that could be the nearest. If the line is in the middle of the two numbers you look at which side is the biggest number and then go down to the lower number.
example 40 39 38 37 36 35 34 33 32 31 40 the biggest number is 30 so you go down to 30 and so then the answer is 35.
