Someone Say Dribbling?

We are learning basketball skills in Room 10 and it's harder
than it looks!  

We have learnt how to pass and catch a ball.  We are also learning how to dribble.... no, not out of our mouths.... dribble a ball!  We thought it would be easy but realised that if we use the flat of our hand we lose our ball.  We are learning to bend our knees and use our fingertips on the ball for better control.

Watch our video to see how we are getting on.....

Maths Challenge - Plotting Coordinates!

Today in Room 10 Group 3 we were learning about how to plot coordinates on a grid and join these to make a 2D shape. 

After some discussion, instruction and a little practise the team decided two of the boys would go head to head, to see who could complete the challenge first.... 

At the end of the challenge they realised they hadn't read the part that asked them to make the shape symmetrical.   Once they realised this, one team was able to quickly turn their shape into several triangles.

Watch the video below to see how it rolled out.
