Decimal Game

During the past few weeks different maths groups have been learning to subtract, add, and multiply decimals efficiently. To test your knowledge and our skills in decimals, we played a game of mixed decimals. This game included 5 questions of adding and 5 questions of subtracting decimals. When I took this game, I got 10 out of 10 questions correct, meaning that during the past week of maths, I have mostly understood these maths equations on adding and subtracting decimals.

I enjoyed doing this activity because it allowed me to test out my decimal skills in maths.

Playing with Microbits

LI: to learn how to code with simple blocks and to transfer the code from the chromebook to the microbit.

Today for Tech, we have been playing with microbits and coding with block scripts. We created LED scripts using coding and transferred the completed script to a microbit, which showcases the end result of our script using lights.

For the first challenge, we created a flashing heart LED script, then we created our own LED light using our knowledge of microbit coding. We also learnt about scripting name tags using a string script which displays text on our Microbit.

More specifically, we made the script to do actions according to our coding using variables. Variables are the buttons we use to activate the script, and the button can vary hence the name “variables.”

Next, we experimented with the other coding aspects and found an interest in the music coding which allows us to play tunes and sounds on command. This lesson helped me learn about block coding and transferring LED scripts to a microbit.

Bee Art

LI: To use nature to create a bee.

Inspired by art creations by Raku Inoue we went outside and collected leaves, twigs, and other plants debris to create our own bee images. This is called the insect art, this was inspired by art creation by Raku Inoue we went outside and collected leaves, twigs, and other plants debris to create our own bee images.

The items we found was fallen onto the ground because we are trying to be sustainable with the products we were going to use. Once we created the bee, we decided to use the leftover material and make a tree out of the branches, and used the other sticks to make the ground. We also created the word “bee” as there were still left in our basket. I enjoyed doing this activity because my group was able to be creative with the items collected from outside, and make the specific insect creatively.

Bees are vital to our survival because they pollinate our plants, which helps us make food, but if we don’t have bees to be productive in our environment we would lose different types of food that needs the plants to make food.
