What is your favourite subject to teach?
Today we collected our own data by questioning teachers. We conducted a survey and then plotted our own data in more than one way. Pie chart plotting was our favourite. ☺️ We found the mean, mode, median and range.
Can an you have a go at doing a similar thing at home year 6?
In PE, we have been looking at our catching and throwing techniques. We applied this to a game of bench ball looking at factors which effect a game. Miss Madden introduced a rule of silence! We found that we actually worked more effectively as a team when we could not shout and talk to each other. We realised how important our other senses are and how they are essential for effective team work.
Today we perfecting our throwing and catching skills looking at all things that factor into a good throw/catch: positioning, stance, aim, force and communication. We highlighted communication as a really important factor when throwing and catching, escpecially during a competitive game.
When applying our skills to a game of bucket ball, we decided to play one game in silence! This forced everyone to have to communicate by looking and listening. It highlighted to us that there are different ways of communicting during a game, each one is as imprortant as the other!
