Writing-Lucy's Bay

WALT Describe a setting with a particular slant


In the book Lucy's Bay by Gary Crew, Sam visits Pops place by the beach. This place is a sad place for Sam because his sister Lucy drowned at the beach nearby, in a little bay which the family call Lucy's Bay. Sam has never been there as he feels responsible for Lucy's death.

We are investigating the way in which Gary Crew uses words to create not just a setting but an setting with Sams emotions-his point of view.

When you have completed that, begin a paragraph of your 'Lucy's Bay'. Choose a setting you know and substitute it. What words will you include to give it your point of view? Similes? Metaphors? Personification (giving non humans, human behaviours)

I love the sentence...he would not stand between the papery branches to watch the quick bright finches flash high in the branches. How could you use something like this?

Tesellations

During maths we have been looking at shapes that tessellated. We have been using a mix of technology and "old school" cutting and pasting (you know...with scissors  and glue).

Using a parallelogram on google draw we made a shape/scribble on one side, cut and pasted it to the other parallel side. This was then repeated until we had a random shape. We then printed these off, coloured them and pasted them together like a jigsaw. 

Next we are going to investigate why some shapes will tessellate and others won't. 



Plate Tectonics

We watched this cool video and these are the new learning's, or questions that came as a result.
