Organs by Abel

4S went  to the Centre of the Cell last Monday. In it we saw real human organs given to the centre after they die so that scientists can investigate on the body parts.

Also, as our topic is Machines Including Amazing Me, we have learned about the digestive system.

Food is chopped, teared, crushed and ground by the teeth. Then it is pushed down the esophagus. The liver absorbs the nutrients, while the stomach blends. The large intestines take out the liquid and the small digest the food before it goes out the anus.

I hope you  enjoyed my blog.

4S Maths by Abel

In maths 4S has been studying Multiplication.

At the beginning of the first week my group used The Bar Method to calculate sums of 2-Digit x 2-Digit.

A few days later we used  Expanded Long Multiplication to calculate the same type of equation, but it was the next step forward in Multiplication.

Today we learnt Long Multiplication, one of the hardest ways of calculating Multiplication Questions.

I enjoyed learning about Multiplication very much in our Maths Lessons.

Our new topic is going to be measurements in length, weight and space.

At the beginning of November we were writing spells related to the Witches‘ one in the play Macbeth by Shakespeare.  We also had to perform it and write it down on post it notes.

Things we needed to remember to do whilst acting are:

  • Project your voice
  • Emphasise certain words
  • Be in character,but not silly
  • Remember your lines
  • Believe in yourself (self-belief)
