Winter Olympic Mascot Comparison

Today we have been learning about the Winter Olympics. For this task we would found mascots that were in the Winter Olympics. Then we compared the 2018 mascot (Soohorang) to the Winter Olympics mascot we picked. We decided to choose Neve and Gliz. They were in the 2006 Winter Olympics. Each mascot has there own meaning. We then compared them using a Venn diagram.

Decimal Problems

Today for maths we were learning how to add and subtract decimal problems. For task we got 4 questions. Once four has been done we follow it up with another four. I have learnt how to add and subtract decimal problems. 

One of the problems was 4.03 + 0.084. I used the written algorithm strategy to solve this problem.

Remembering Our Summer Holiday

Remembering Our Summer Holiday

I heard music playing.
I heard screams of other people.

I felt scared zooming past people.
I felt nervous going up.

I saw roller coasters going by.

I wondered if I would get stuck.
I wondered if my family would come back.

Blog Post Analysis - Statistical

Today we have been learning to carry out a statistical inquiry. For this inquiry DLO we used google spreadsheets to figure out how much blog posts we have done during the years we have been at school. We then wrote an explanation of what the causes are for having the amount of blog post we had at the moment. These are the reasons why I had the amount of blog post I had at the moment.
