Maths: Measuring mass

In 4S we have been measuring mass

In our maths we had to measure the weight mass of different objects in the classroom. The below resources are the types of scales we used. We also learned the difference between weight and mass which is affected by gravity. We have all learnt a lot on our first day back!

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.

I hope you like my blog!

On our school journey we did lot of activities including problem solving. In problem solving we solved lots of problems, like this one where we could not walk or run to the place we needed to get to otherwise we would float in space. So one person held the base as one person made a chain to hold on to the next base and on and on and on till we got to are next activity base.
