Term3 Week 5

This week we have been really busy. We have enjoyed learning about 'direct' and 'indirect' measure.
Miss G using a popstick to measure her desk mat.

Mr B using his feet to measure the bench.

Boys hard at work.
We got to use tape measures. We learnt the words centimetre, millimetre, metre and kilometre. Our tape measures had centimetres and millimetres on them. Some of us used our rulers to measure things.

We were given a body shape. We had to work in pairs and our partner had to measure the different parts of our bodies with a tape measure. We then recorded the measurement on our body shape. It was great fun.

We are all different sizes.

Recording our measurements.

We also learnt that sometimes people (media) use words to make us think a certain way or to inform us about different things. Newspapers and T.V. advertisements use words that make us want to buy toys, eat at different restaurants or wear a particular brand of clothes. We looked at how they advertise Reduce, Recycle and Reuse. We discovered that lots of different companies use these words when they are trying to sell their products like worm farms and compost bins.
We then created posters to make people aware that by recycling, reducing and reusing, we can have a cleaner and happier environment.
