# Poetry

Today we explored the poem “The Uncertainty of the Poet” by Wendy Cope.  The class created their own poems by using 10 words and changing the location of where each word is in the sentence.  We have seen some fantastic examples!

# Eating the right amount of food

For health, we did a eating times table. We had to research what is the right amount of food and serving size too.

# Numeracy- constructing our trundle wheels

Students have now used their understanding of pi, diameter of a circle and circumference to work out how to make a 1m long trundle wheel circle. Most groups have even devised a way to make the trundle wheel ‘click’ when it reaches 1 meter and surprisingly most wheels are pretty accurate- give or take a cm or 2 🙂
