Here is the latest picture of the coketooth.
After nearly 3 days, the tooth is covered in a thick brown layer. What will be left on Monday?
We discovered a word today thanks to Poon...chyme. I immediately thought that Poon meant chime, as in hear the bells chime...but no!
Chyme is the word for the semi-liquid contents of your stomach as they are about to pass into the duodenum (the next place in the journey of food as it gets digested). See here for the online dictionary definition.

ASK AN ALIEN,
ASK AN ASTRONAUT,
You may not end up with more money but you will be mathematically richer!
Can you get to the start?
Do you have the power to be...Mission Controller?
Money was an area which caused problems for a few people.
Here are a few BEAM activity sheets and games. Some of these were set as this week's homework.
Here are some other UK money sites from Crickweb:
Money box - drop money into the moneybox and add it up!
Slot machine to 50p - pull the handle, let it spin and add up the coins.
Slot machine to £2 - - pull the handle, let it spin and add up the coins
Mr Toffee's sweet shop - Go to the shop, buy some items and pay. Click on Show total for help.
White Elephant Shop - buy items up to £20 and give the correct coins.
Remember to comment on the games you liked the best.
Please say why...What did they help you learn?...Were they fun?...Did they make nice noises? Did they help you teach your sister?
Here are some other interesting UK money facts.

Each group made their favourite smoothie from last week. This time we made it with 5 x the amount.
We then took them to the classroom and gave each a score.
We did not know which smoothie was made by which group.
Well done to Richie Cane Tinn Toby for winning the vote with an average score (from 1-10) of 7.18 points.
Close behind were Melyssa Rita Punn Bua Melanie with 7.09 points.
Well done to all the smoothie makers for testing, tasting and scoring.
Quote of the day goes to Tom:" I gave it a 5 because I didn't like the aftertaste!" What fabulous vocabulary...maybe he is a food taster of the future!

One of the common areas I talked about was reading. I want to make it clearer that 20 minutes reading every night is a homework expectation.
- If you are a very fluent reader and you understand most of what you read, then an adult can help you by asking questions about your reading.
- If you are becoming fluent then you should read aloud for some of the reading time.
- If you need help with quite a lot of help with words, then read aloud to an adult.
What should I write in my reading record?
- Write the date and the title (if you are continuing with the same title from the day before, then you can write "same as yesterday" to save time).
- When your parents hear you read or ask you questions about your reading, please ask them to sign your reading record.
- I will ask some children to do a more detailed reading target. This will mean they need to read 4 books from a list, write about them and post blog comments ALL WITHIN A MONTH...wait for more information.
Here are some photos, hot off the press, from our trip around our local area. There are some pictures from the wall which celebrate the King of Thailand.
Which special day is coming up soon in Thailand?

Are you an omnivore, herbivore or carnivore?
We are learning about teeth and eating and were thinking about what kinds of food animals eat to get their energy.
Different animals have different teeth…why is that?
Use this link to play the game we played in class today to learn about carnivores herbivores and omnivores.

This bingo game is a great game for helping you to learn the division facts quickly.
This number space invaders game helps you work on multiplication and division facts. You also get to choose which times or division facts you are working on.
This petshop game gives you prizes for the answers you answer correctly.
Please comment on your best scores and your favourite games.
The coconut trees were leaning from the power of the wind. I saw light sand and it was extremely hot and it looked very red.
Waves hitting shore, seagulls calling , it's a wonderful day to be at the beach. Suddenly I heard a screaming sound. Oh, it was just a boy laughing about his video game. So I just carried on sunbathing. I heard a dog barking. At the sea a boy was just about to get the ball when suddenlyu he fell down a hole. His parents raced to the hole, but the boy was already gone and there were some strange footprints which looked like hands.
Haley had silky brown hair and a pink swimming costume. She was so shocked by the handprints...
Tom was strolling along the beach when he saw something but he could not tell what it was because it was night. Tom came back the next night. It was still there so he made a plan to come back the next night.

This game involves recognition of odd and even numbers and making and testing predictions. It is played in pairs.
15 items, such as beans, counters, cubes, gumnuts or acorns.
In turn, each player takes 1, 2 or 3 objects until no objects are left. The winner is the person who has an odd number of objects.
Here's another problem which gives you a chance to make different totals.
Think you know your times tables? Then try this one...Shifted Times tables
Wow! they seem very busy.
As you can see, below there is space for another entry...send me your information if you want to be included.
Are you really busy or do you wish you had more to do after school?
Do you watch T.V or play on the computer? Richie and Bua didn't mention that in their writing, but I bet they spend some time in front of a screen.
I am a very busy person! My name is
This is what I do before and after school:

OF COURSE NOT!!!!
We have made balanced plates with food from all 5 food groups...can you remember their names? Send them in as a comment.
Here's a great game to help you learn them and have fun making a balanced plate for a healthy diet.

Times tables are so helpful...when I go shopping and buy 7 cartons of juice which cost 15 baht each I can quickly work out how much I will need...when I sponsor someone 10 baht for each length thay swim and they swim eight lengths, I can quickly find the answer.
When you know your times tables, you can check that you are paying the right amount and getting the right amount of change!
Here are some downloadable cards which you can print and make into a game. Here are the answers. Play at home or at school.
Here are tips for the 5 x table,6 x table, 7 x table, 8 x table, 9 x table and there are many other tips too.
Don't forget that Timezattack is another way to learn, but I find that the best way is to repeat each fact and answer.
Wednesday, 4 November 2009
Please be ready to hand in your books on Monday 9th November.
If you know these then write the times tables you need to learn.
Have a look at the Woodlands site for some games ideas, but one of the best ways to learn is to say them, write the facts down on cards and write the answers on cards and play a matching game (use the back of a cereal packet if you don't have any other card).
Multiplication.com also has some good x games.

Y3 will be starting to design some smoothies. We will start off by thinking about different kinds of food, the various food groups and what we need to eat to be healthy.
Have a look at this website, coolfood kidz. Can you find out 7 ways to be safe with food?
Send answers as comments and a marble might be coming your way.

Which materials would we choose?
What would we want the material to be like?
Would we want to have a transparent material or an opaque one?
Look at how we sorted the materials using a venn diagram made from sorting hoops. Try to look at the scientific words we used to describe the properties of the materials.
The Sunflower group were fantastic because they said "We are not sure about whether these materials are waterproof". The best scientists ask questions and then try to find the answers. The worst scientists think they know it all.

Have a go...you might need to download some Adobe software so ask for help from your parents.
The artwork in the pictures is amazing and you can use really professional pictures to make your book look great.
This Picture Book maker is another site which allows you to make a simple short book. It doesn't let you save your story, but you can print out your own book.
Please email me if you publish a story of your own and I will put a link to it on the class blog.

Why do we use plastic for making pens? Why not diamond?
Why do we use glass for making windows? Why not thin slices of ham?
Why do we use cotton for making shirts? Why not metal?
We used the sheet below to help us investigate why we use materials for different objects. Use the properties sheet for help.

Using our own patterns which we photocopied, we chose a simple palette of contrasting colours and used these to decorate.
We used different media: paint, pencil and pastel.
We hope you like them.
Which is your favourite?
Guilli liked Tinn's design so much that he used it with his own colour scheme. Which design was Tinn's?

Pressing control-shift-PrtScrn takes a picture (a screenshot) of the screen at that moment. You can then paste it into another document. We pasted into Word.
Here's an online site which allows you to make your own graphs.
Try to make a graph of something at home...maybe the ages of your family, the sizes of your shoes, the number of power points in each room.
Let me know how the graph making goes. You could send me a screenshot of the graph you make.
This BBC site is amazing. You ask the different people questions and enter the data in a tally. Have a go. Please comment.

Were there any surprising facts?
Tuesday, 6 October 2009
Want to know if a material (the stuff the thing is made of) which is used to make an object (a thing) is:
hard, soft, solid, liquid, shiny, dull, transparent, opaque,floats, sinks, mixes, flammable, non flammable, magnetic, non magnetic, a conductor, an insulator or is natural or man made?
You could look at this picture for some help with words (they are usually near their opposite).
Look no further. Go here for the Active Science GlaxoSmithKline materials database.
Go here when you are confident you can handle...mission material. Be careful, you have to move quickly and know your properties of materials.
If you want a complete view of the Glaxo ActiveScience materials, go here...an impressive collection ofresources.

We are asking and answering questions in our maths lessons.
Which day of the week is your favourite?
What is your prediction?
Why do you think that?
We found out the most popular day in 3W.
We used a tally to collect the information. We used a class register to make sure the data was complete. We turned the tally into a frequency diagram by adding it up.
Click here for a great maths dictionary to help you understand any technical maths words.
...and the class favourite was...Friday...must be because we have chips in the canteen!
The P.E. department needs a poster.
The winning entry will be used as the front cover of the Programme. There are also other prizes available. The deadline for designs to be handed in (to Khun Pacharee please) is Friday 9th October...you only have 4 days to get it done.
Marbles will be given for participating in this competition.
Here is a snapshot of the highlights of the 3W weekend:
Melyssa's party and meditation
my birthday party
going to Sophie's house for party
getting a Wii
watching live tennis, birthday
new website and game
playing spies with my friends
having a take away (take out)
very big party with more than 20 people, doing some washing up
party, funarium, going to sleep late, waking up early
playing with friends
watching "Wacked out sports"
playing at my friends
going to a restaurant with bed chairs
Can you remember who said what?

Yesterday, 15 thoughtful students from Mr C's class, somewhere out there in the real world, read our post about how tall we are in hand heights. They then commented on our blog...see here.
Their class activity was to read our blog (see here for their activity) and comment. What great interaction and international learning.
I want to know more about these students. How old are they? What are their interests? Have they ever been to Thailand?
Please take the time to read their comments, and maybe you could have a look at MrC's blog.

We were finding out how many hand heights are the same as our body height.
Some of us used this information to predict how tall a giant was by using a hand print.
Some photos of us doing this are shown below:

Try to think carefully about patterns that you see in a normal 100 square...what is the pattern in the first column of the normal 100 square, under the number 1?
This should help you solve it.
You could also print it out, cut out the pieces and solve it like a jigsaw.
Go here to see a normal 100 square to help you solve the challenge.

Apologies for getting the events dates muddled up.
The Aquathlon is on Tuesday, 29th September, from 7:50 – 8:50 (during our normal P.E. lesson)
and the Basketball is on Friday 2nd October, from 7:50 – 9:50.
The Aquathlon is on Tuesday, 29th September, from 7:50 – 8:50 (during our normal P.E. lesson)
Thanks to Rachel for noticing and pointing this out.
Remember that parents can join in with the Aquathlon if they want to. I’ll be in the pool and jogging round the track so it would be good to see some other adults taking part.
