Amazon Animals

Our display of Amazing Amazon Animals in the classroom

Our display of Amazing Amazon Animals in the classroom

Last week we each created scenes showing animals from the Amazon in their rainforest habitat. We first looked at the work of the artist Henri Rousseau, studying the way he painted the different layers of the jungle and the way he presented a variety of types of trees and leaves. We illustrated the scenes carefully using pencils and pencil crayons and then we made the animals from plasticine using photographs as a reference.

We worked hard to create accurate models of the animals

Ratio Homework

This week in Numeracy we have been looking at ratio. Below are some activities for you to complete relating to this topic.

Weigh It Up – This activity uses the context of balancing weights to help you to understand ratios.

Weigh It Up

Weigh It Up

Thinking Blocks – This gives you a variety of ratio word problems to be solved (I recommend watching the video introduction at the start). Focus on ‘Ratios 1′ but you may want to extend yourself by looking at the more difficult challenges in ‘Ratios 2′ and ‘Ratios 3′.

Thinking Blocks

Ratio Rumble – As a reward when you have finished you can try to create mixtures to make ratios and defeat your opponent (you can mute the annoying music – look for the symbol in the top-right hand corner).
