We are making a drawing of a compass in class. We need to make a circle with a radius of 10 cm and work out it’s diameter and circumference too. We will use a protractor to draw accurate angles for all the points on a compass rose. Maths is Fun is always a great resource to find answers to our questions.
TASK – Write a ‘statement’ on our class blog to explain how many units we will have for the ‘100th case’ of our block pattern from Day 5 of ‘youcubed‘. If you have time, please give another example for a different case.
So – answer the following in a comment box below:
To work out how many blocks/units there would be in the ‘100th case’ of the WIM Day 5 problem I:
please continue with as many points as you need to explain.
5W students have been working since September to raise/earn enough money outside of school to be able to finance one USD$25.00 loan through Kiva.org
All students have joined in our efforts in some way and I am proud to say that we have together made loans to people or groups on Kiva worth over USD$500 – or approximately JPY 60,000. You can check on who we have made loans to by clicking on the links in THIS document
Our loans will hopefully be repaid over the next 8 months. If the loan is repaid, it will then be up to your child whether s/he withdraws the money or re-lends it. That will be his/her choice as it is of course his/her money.
Thank you parents for supporting your child. I think it’s a great lesson in teaching how we can, in a small way, help others to help themselves.
We had such a wonderful time on camp last week with the English Adventure team at Chichibu in Saitama. 5W students wanted to send a ‘thank you’ letter to one of the counsellors – Jeff, Masha, Kozue san, Toshi (Senior) San, Mike, Peter and Gary the wonderful cook. It’s taken us a week to draft up the letter, write it in our books, type or voice type the letter, edit again, turn it in and print a copy! Phew.
Please see your child’s letter in his or her comment box below.
