Today we were working in the computer suite to complete different levels in Rainforest Coding.
It is fun to solve the problems.
Some of us worked in pairs as it is a good way to support each other if we are not confident using the computer.

We drew and cut out different shapes and folded them to check for lines of symmetry. We discovered that the irregular shapes didn't have symmetry and that some shapes have lots of symmetry. We noticed that a circle has loads of lines of symmetry!

We wrote adverts to sell our castles. We focused on modern castles and used our imagination to create castles that would appeal to people today. Some of our castles had cinema rooms, hot tubs and saunas, champagne fountains, swimming pools and even a zoo.
When writing our advert, we were aware that we had to use interesting adjectives which would help sell our castle. We had to include a picture that would capture the interest of the buyer and set out clearly the asking price. We were encouraged to use bullet points and commas and write using short phrases. Some of us forgot to include an email address or phone number so that the buyer could contact the seller. We now realise how important this is on an advert.

We made pizza fractions in class. We had to find a fraction of a number of pepperoni pieces and place them on the pizza. We all worked on different fractions eg 1/2 1/4 1/3 1/5. We stuck little counters on to represent the topping. They looked good enough to eat!
