This afternoon we put our coding skills to practice. We used Sphero to code different types of shapes and angles. We also used our knowledge on time to code by drawing shapes clockwise and anti-clockwise.

When have you used Sphero in your classroom?

Exploring Chinese Music

This afternoon, we were introduced to different pieces of Chinese music. We spoke about different Chinese instruments. Some instruments include: Qin, Zheng and the Pipa. We were able to have a go and create a piece of Chinese music.

Can you think of any other Chinese instruments?

Data analysis

This afternoon, we analysed a set of data. We recorded it’s mean, median and mode. We used our maths skills to work out the answers.

The data was about the amount of deaths from the plague in Shakespearean times.

Can you explain how we would find out the mean, median and mode?

The plague in Stratford Upon Avon

This afternoon, we investigated the total amount of deaths during the years 1563-1565. We generated our own questions and analysed the data. Using our maths skills, we found out that 1564 had the total amount of deaths. We also applied our maths skills learnt this week (subtracting by counting on, on a number line) to help us interpret that data.

Do you know about the plague?

This afternoon, we have been using different coloured cut up square paper to make our mosaics. We used our plans for the mosaics that we had already made to help us. What different colours would you use on your mosaics?
