School hockey tournament. #WeWon!Wilson

So today, instead of going to school, we went to a hockey tournament. First, we got into three groups, Owls, Otters and Orcas. I was in the Owls, and we faced off the Wild Wilson, Ranikhet Raccoons and another team from Battle. These were the the teams that the owls faced off, and we completely beasted  Isaac’s team(wild Wilson)and won by 2-0!! Wow, that is amazing even by my standards. But wait, there’s more! The owls and orcas didn’t move on to the QU finals but the otters did and peter and zayed scored all the goals and for the finals, the score was (drumroll………..) 4-0!!!!!!!!!! OMG I have never felt so happy!

Reasoning and justifying

4100+5200=9300

First I did 100+200 in my head.

Then I did 4000+5000 in my head.

then I added up the answers to get the answer of 9300.

I did this because there was no carrying over to do.

9400+4400=13800

First I did  9+4 to get 13 but its 9000 and 4000 so I added on the three zeros.

Then I did 400+400 wich is 800.

Finally I added them all together to get 13800

I did this because there was carrying in this sum.

7400+2900=10300

First I did 9+4=13 wich if I add the two zeros on the end makes 1300

Then I did 7000+2000=9000

Next I added 9000+1300 but I would need to carry over to the ten thousands so I carried over to the ten thousands to get 10300

I chose this because this sum had lots of carrying over in it. Working with smaller number to carry is easier than thousands then all you have to do is add the extra zeros on end. Then your carrying is complete and you can carry on with your sum

 

The most important things are:

To think if you might need carrying to complete the calculation

To find a suitable method to use in your head

To not choose sums that are too hard for yourself unless you want a challenge everyone likes a challenge sometimes but not always

Reasoning and justifying

  • 4, 100 + 5, 200 = 9, 300

I chose to do shorten the numbers down so that it is 41 and 52 the just add the units then the tens together then stretch the numbers out back into thousands and hundreds I did the sum like this because it does not carry over any digits

  • 6,200 + 4, 300 =10,500

in this sum I used 6+4 which is a number bond to ten and 3+2 which is 5 and so sand which those numbers together and put them into hundreds and thousands and that makes 10, 500

  • 7, 400 + 2, 900 = 10, 300

this time I took away the zeros which leaves me with the numbers 74 and 29 you add together the 9 and the 4 which is like 10 + 4 – 1 which is 3 and finally this carries and do 3 + 7 + 2 which is 10 and then finally do the thousands and hundreds and therefore the answer is 10, 300 this is done like this and the 2nd because it carries over numbers

things that will cause me to change the way I do the sum

  •  carrying over digits this will cause me to change the way I do this because it is not as simple as doing numbers under 5 or 50 or 500 or even 5,000 add on themselves or bigger numbers because adding on a ten to what you already have is really hard unless it is a very small sum which would be easy but especially with bigger numbers it gets a lot harder to do

Reasoning and Justifying

  1. To find four thousand one hundred add five thousand two hundred I would add four thousand to five thousand two hundred  make it nine thousand one hundred and then add the remaining two hundred because it is less time consuming for me and is the easiest method for me in my mind for now.
  2. For six thousand two hundred add four thousand three hundred I would add six thousand to five thousand  which equals nine thousand  and then I would add three hundred  to two hundred and make five hundred and the add the  two numbers together to make ten thousand five hundred

Reasoning + Justifying

4100 + 5200=9300

First I started with the ones, but there’s no ones or tens so I moved on to the hundreds. We have 1 + 2 = 3 so we can move those digits over to the hundreds making 100 + 200 = 300. Next we add 4 and 5, wich gives us 9 and we can easily convert it to thousands. So we have 4000 + 5000 = 9000, then add our two answers for a grand total of 9300! J. I did this because it’s the most effective way to do it.

4700 + 3200 = 7300

First, I added 2 to 7 for the number 9, which converts over to 900. Now for the thousands, with 4 + 3 = 7 and converting the 7, we get 7000. Finally, add the two totals for 7300. J. I did it this way because it is the most effective way.

Reasoning and Justifying

4100+5200=

First I started at the hundred’s because the one’s and ten’s were all zero’s so I did

100+200 and that = 300 then I did the thousands so 4000+5000=9000

finally I added them together and that =9300 and I did that method because It

is easier for me and it is not to confusing to do.

6700+7100=

So first I did is I used my fingers to count 7+1 to make it easier but it is still 700 and 100 so it =800 then I did 6 add 7 and that =13 so then I did  13000+800=13800 so 6700+7100=13800 and I used that method because it made the method help me when I did 6000+7000

2500+9400=

so  first I did is I started at the hundreds and counted because there is only zero’s at the ten’s and one’s so I did 500+400=900 and next was the thousand’s so I did 2000+9000 but that was to hard so I did 2+9 to make it easier to do and that =11 thousand so what I did at the last was to add them together so 2500+9400=11900

what I watched last week on Thursday evening 7.11.16

On Thursday I watched a children’s programme on CBBC it was called blue peter and it is all about people that do stuff REALLY good and then the people that run the show (Radzi, Lyndsey and Barney) send you a blue peter badge for different things.

Three weeks ago Lyndsey, Radzi and Barney announced the winner of the big day out competition and in the half term they let him drive a tube train !

In the half term they also told you how to make your own hologram to project images on your iPhone, iPad, iPod, computer and other devices.

Maths Poem

Times tables of nine , times tables of nine,

It is just so fine,

multiply every nine ,

Education  is so fine and math is what is really mine,

So don’t suck your thumbs and don’t ask your mum,

Times, times don’t be dome

And don’t even ask your mum,

Be the magician you really are,

Lets set of and drive a car,

Easy peasy is the math,

So lets go and do some math,

OK I give up but math is what I really want,

Fun is education and I know what you want

9 is what you want.

fist day of awesome science week! 26.9.16

This morning we went into the hall and met DR. Matt Pritchard and he started of with a trick that seems impossible and what he did was tied a knot and then he pulled the knot off the string then he went on to a talk about how and why science tricks your mind. But then he had 3 cups and then he switched them over and we guessed right but then he put a nappy in one of the cups and then he emptied all the cups out onto year threes but nothing came out! and he then went to a classic old trick and squeezed a litre Pepsi bottle full of water.He also did a junk cup trick by having two polystyrene cups and put string around it and then wound up the string and off it went and it just hovered down to the floor. then he got some beads and put ten over the side and the rest fell out of the box onto the floor! finally he put a spoon in his mouth and then a fork came out What the! then he went onto a slide at the end and there was a really funny picture in it!!

He did all sorts including making a tin roll up hill, making a jeep look bigger than it is. Shooting a polyestiry cup and making a piece of metal stick to his hand. I’m not gona tell you how or it would be meanish but I am gona tell you the one about him making a tin roll up hill. Here’s how he dose it, he puts something like coins or a weight on in it hidden by a stuffed toy ,place it with the weight at the top and it will roll no matter on the top of a hill or the bottom of a hill. Well that’s it for this post about the science show for now, so bye!

The First Day Of Science Week

The first day of science week  was great because a visitor taught us magic some basic magic tricks ,it was a quiz for all  of us . It was great we learnt how to make a tin move up a ramp  without us touching  it at first nobody guessed  how it worked . Then the magician picked two people to place a box still the first time it was great but the second time the man placed a toy dog  on the board ,then, when they tried it but it kept falling . The great show took place in  the hall for  an hour or two . I learnt a lot in that time.

Jonny Brownlee is in the lead at first but then runs out of energy and can’t control his running . the reaches a water break and gives up. but not for long as Alistair Brownlee picks his brother up, he held Jonny’s arm around his neck and said “come on we can do this!” Then 18 seconds after the South African goes across the line , Alistair threw jonny onto the ground and comes in as second. afterwards they had a meeting and agreed Alistair first and Jonny second!
