I will put up the leader board at 8pm. The totals have changed quite a bit! My total has gone down from 800 to 300.  I think it might be looking at the totals for the last 7 days. That means that any stars you received 8 days ago will not count.

I will send everyone any extra now. If you don't receive it you are not linked!

I am so impressed that so many of you managed to download the app last night and started earning stars.

The following children are currently our top star earners:

 

1st   William (103 stars)

2nd  Harvey S (81 stars)

3rd   Tobi (77 stars)

 

I have found out a bit more about how Doodle Maths is organised.

 

1. You need to complete so many assessment rounds of 7-a-day before other options are made available. I think it is about eight.

2. When you have, you will be able to click on 'New this week'. This will teach you something new and then ask you specific questions to check your understanding.

3. At any time I could send a specific task that I want you to complete. You will know that I have sent this because the 'Added Extras' icon will be illuminated. These must be completed and you will not be able to click on 'New this week' until you have.

4. If you want to work on something specific, you can search 'Topic Index' via the 'Grown Up' section. You need to click on the 'Go' link on the right-hand side.

The children in my class re-enacted the Peasants' Revolt of 1381.

Wat Tyler was said to have ridden a tiny horse and this is exactly what we were given when we asked to borrow one from the reception class. With some trick photography, this did not present itself as a problem!

The children in Year 6 had an extremely fun (and rather exhausting) day creating their own lunar base. Working in groups, they used a wide variety of skills to make important decisions and create Utopia.

 

Who would they take with them?

Could they design the perfect animal to join them?

What would their lunar base actually look like?

Could they use their persuasive skills to encourage others to join them?

 

The children worked really hard and I am so proud of all they achieved.

Bacterial Growth Investigation

I am not going to add any more pictures because the petri dishes have not changed that much.

Remember to put your observation sheets in your topic folders.

You are more than welcome to come to my classroom to see exactly how the bacteria have grown; however, you will need to be quick because an expert is taking them away very soon to analyse them.

Here are the pictures of the petri dishes for the first and second day - Thursday (Day 1) and Friday (Day 2).Nothing has changed so they are the same. Make sure that you draw the masking tape and arrow. I will put them in alphabetical order on Saturday and Sunday so I would suggest that you do the same thing on your recording sheet.

The Black Death was caused by a bacteria - a micro-organism that can only be seen under the microscope.

Perhaps you might be able to find out its name?

 

Today the children in years 5 and 6 started an investigation to find out about how bacteria grow. The children will need to record the growth each day on the sheet provided.

 

You can download extra copies of this sheet below.

I will take photos of the petri dishes over the weekend and add them to this page. These should be drawn on the second sheet.

Please note that there are only four petri dishes and the last one should remain blank.

It's a Mystery!

It's a Mystery! 1

Who is this mysterious person?

When did he live?

What did he do?

How is the fictional character similar / different to the person he is believed to be based on?

You could try writing about this character / person in less than 100 words. I will put the best ones up on display!
