SIMULATIONS!!

Posted by Mr Matthews on May 7, 2013

This half term our topic in ICT is simulations.  Last week we talked about what simulations are and what they are used for.  Then we had a go at the duck builder game which we all really enjoyed!

 

This week we are comparing different simulations.  Here are the links to the simulations I want you to use –

http://puzzling.caret.cam.ac.uk/game.php?game=roller

http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/interactive/games/dressing_up_f/index_embed.shtml

Post your findings on this blog entry.

Think about

– How are they similar?

– How are they different?

– What is the purpose of these simulations?

– How useful are they?

 

Enjoy!

More Simulations….

Posted by Mr Matthews on May 1, 2013

Now you have made your duck fly…have a go at these science simulations. Think about what variables you can change and how these change the outcome (what happens!)/

Pie Charts!!!!!!!!!

Posted by Mr Matthews on April 23, 2013

This morning we have been looking at interpreting pie charts. 

Here is another example for you to try.

I asked 4M what their favourite colours were.  This pie chart on the right hand side shows the results.  There are 30 children in 4M.

Estimate the fraction of children who said that purple was their favourite colour.

Is the following statement TRUE or FALSE?

‘There are 18 people in the class whose favourite colour is not red or purple’.

Post your answer!

Can you ask any of your own questions about this pie chart?  Post your questions so that Plymouth Groves bloggers can have a go at answering them!

Hello from Mr.Matthews

Posted by Mr Matthews on April 5, 2013

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all having a great Easter break. If you have done all your homework and are wanting something to keep you entertained here are some suggestions…

1) Read, read and read some more!! Remember, the more you read, the better reader you will become.

2) Do some research on the Terrible Tudors….Miss Gatland will be doing some work with you about them after the holidays.

3) Play this simulation to learn about teeth and eating…(we will be learning about this in the first week back!)….http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/scienceclips/ages/7_8/teeth_eating.shtml

4) Reply to this post and let us know what you have been up to so far in the holidays.

5) Practice your times table facts to help you get quicker for our next game of Penalty shoot out. Here is a game link to help you…http://www.wmnet.org.uk/wmnet/custom/files_uploaded/uploaded_resources/851/Hitthebuttonv7.swf

6) Write a short story…keep it simple but descriptive (you could even publish it on our blog!)

Enjoy the rest of your holidays

Mr. Matthews
