WALT: Interpret pictograms (scaled 2, 5 and 10)

When we talk about the scale, we mean how much each picture represents. Yesterday, you created your own pictograms with different scales. The key tells you what each picture represents. 


For example, this key shows that each circle represents 10 cars so on Monday the car salesman sold 50 cars (there are 5 circles and 5 x 10 = 50). On Tuesday there are 4 and a half circles so the car salesman sold 45 cars (there are 4 full circles 4 x 10 = 40 and one half circle = 5).


Remember to check the scale each time as 1 picture might represent 2, 5 or 10!

? = question mark

(used to show when a question has ended and are often used with sentences starting with who, what, when, where, why or how).

WALT: Make music with our  bodies


Vocal and body sounds are sounds that are created using just our own bodies and with our voices.

To make the sounds, we might shout, sing, hum or hiss. There are so many other ways you can use your voice. Try some of your own.

We can also use our body to make percussion sounds. We can tap, click and clap. We can even use our feet to stamp or stomp!
