What we learnt in Week 8

Welcome to M9's Daily Diary.

Friday 11th September
We are learning about poetic writing. My group was writing about castles. In our art we were learning to paint good pictures. We sang a song called, ‘Up Along The Coast’. Then we drew a picture of the water and we painted it. I am enjoying Miss McDonald giving us hard work and easy. I found it to my maths worksheet.

I learnt about handwriting licenses. I can use pen, pencil and can use flicks. My next step is linking. I learnt how to paint like Van Gogh. In reading we made book covers about ‘The Firework Maker’s Daughter’. In maths and art I learnt how to draw a tessellation. I think they are hard sometimes, but sometimes they are easy. I learned how to use a number to work out equations and I learnt two new songs, ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight’ and ‘Up Along The Coast’.

I have learnt how to order decimals and turn remainders into fractions. I want to learn some more about turning remainders into fractions. In handwriting I learned how to use flicks nicely. Next I want to learn how to slope nicely. In reading we made story cubes and book covers for the story, ‘The Firework Maker’s Daughter’. In writing we learned how to do poetic writing.

This week we learned: decimals, moody painting, tessellations, Kensuke’s Kingdom, book covers, board games, similes and personification. I would like to learn more about decimals. It is fun.
