This week we've still been learning to get use to ratios. To figure out the answer for ratios you need to use your multiplying skills. For example; there are 2 strawberry sweets for every 3 orange sweets in a bag of 30 sweets. How many strawberry sweets are there? Firstly you need to add 2 + 3 and it equals 5, then you figure out how to get to thirty by multiplying something with 5. So 5 x 6 = 30 and then multiply 2 and 3 with 6. 6 x 2 = 12 and 6 x 3 = 18 and the answer is 12:18

What kind of sentences do you use for your writing? I use to always use simple sentences before I knew there were two other kind of sentences. Now that I have learnt about the three sentence types I can now mix them up in whatever writing that I do.
This week our task was to create a presentation about Brenda Martinez and an article about her. One of the points I learnt in this article was that Brenda couldn't afford new running shoes when she was young and now she is donating shoes to kids from her sponsor New Balance.
