Each scoring combination has a different point value. Try to get as high as score as possible by the end of the game. Whether you play the regular game on paper or you play Yahtzee online, the scoring combinations for Yahtzee always include:
FIVE-OF-A-KIND. If all five dice show the same value, you get 50 points. This is known as a "Yahtzee".
CHANCE. You can use this score combination when you end up with random numbers that don't match any of the other score combinations.
LARGE STRAIGHT. This is five dice in a sequence. Example: 2,3,4,5,6.
SMALL STRAIGHT. This is four dice in a sequence. Example: 1,2,3,4,6.
FULL HOUSE. This is three-of-a-kind plus two-of-a-kind. Example: 4,4,4,2,2.
4 OF A KIND. This is four of the same number. Example: 3,3,3,3,1.
3 OF A KIND. This is three of the same number.
Other than Chance, this is the easiest scoring combination to get.
We are finishing our William Morris prints we played, refined and reflected on the practice We made a stencil of 4 or 5 and a motif We used the craft knives carefully We used gloves We used goggles We will print them tomorrow such fun! Great for making wrapping paper

Signing of uniforms for students leaving Bangkok Patana School
Students are welcome to bring in a spare uniform for their friends to sign if they wish to on their last day in the
Primary School. This must be a separate, spare uniform and not the one that they are wearing. We have Patana elephants for sale in the shop that can also be used for this purpose.
While isometric means to have equality of measure, an isometric drawing challenges the visual in terms of space, volume, and surface area by eliminating the distortion of typical perspective drawing.
Isometric drawing paper (as seen below) doesn’t contain horizontal lines. It has a grid of triangles running vertically and diagonally. In normal perspective drawings, all lines converge towards the vanishing point; however, in isometric drawings that is not the case.
They are supposed to show as much detail as possible because the lines do not converge. Isometry is employed to visually depict objects of three-dimensions in two-dimensions.
Artists such as MC Escher explore principals of isometry and isometric drawing.

Present Effectively - The idea of making a presentation in public is the number one fear reported by people in the US. Presentation skills are also one of the skills employers are looking for. There is no way around it; the only way to conquer this fear is through practice. We need to give our students the advantage by planning regular in-class presentations and having opportunities to speak in larger audiences such as MUN and assemblies.
Great timing Mr Mills!
How has Rugby changed?
How the Steam engine changed the British Empire
WOW! The Gold Rush in Australia
We are growing in confidence, clarity and some of us are even bringing in props!
We are concentrating on the content too. How has the invention changed history? I think......
We are reflecting and giving thoughtful opinions in our presentations too.
We made two nature stencils
We made a repeating pattern
We did a 4 or 5!
We used contrasting (opposite) colours
to make an image stand out
We used close to or next to colours for harmony
We will consider coulours more carefully with the dye and stencils
We adore being creative!
We made an imovie of our Dr Barnardo learning
We inquired and researched
We asked him lots of questions
We found out who Carrots was
We collaborated and shared skills
We put in sound and text
We thought about his answers from his point of view.
We will share them at the museum
Dear Mrs Measures,
I am pleased to inform you that one of your students, Maitri Jain has won the Maths-Whizz competition to design a pet or toy. Maitri's designs of a dancing parrot and a parrot playing badminton has been combined with another parrot who can ride a skateboard. The designs were fantastic, so please can you advise me of which age size t'shirt the student is and I can get some goodies sent out. The parrot will be available in the Whizz Shop form the summer, so ask your students to look out for this.
Well done to all the artists and creative thinkers.
Can I tell the time and solve time problems?
Can I convert 12 to 24 hr time?
Can I read a timetable?
WILLIAM MORRIS DRAFTS

24, Crossings Road,
I am writing to you to plead for your help. My son, Edward, has been missing for 3 days now and I am sick with worry. The last time I saw him, he was heading out in search of work. He is only 9 years old and doesn’t have a penny to his name. Oh please help me find him, I couldn’t bear it if anything had happened to him, he is such a good boy. I cannot pay very much, but what I have is yours, just please find him before it is too late.
Mrs Irene Beadle
It is 1867. we are a private detective agency. We may need sniffer dogs, check fingerprints, we may need to interview suspects and witnesses. We may need magnifying glasses and we will need to collect our evidence
We will be careful, honest and thorough detectives. We will not leave a stone unturned until we find Edward.
Where can he be, time is running out, it has been 3 days already.
We used our archives
Where could he work?
What could we ask his mother?
Gold, silver, bronze questions.
Our chief detectives collated the questions and ideas so far.
We interviewed Mrs Beadle.
We know she is poor, her husband died of the dust. There are 6 mouths to feed. He is a tall, thin boy, who wants to help his sad family.
Working at a Landowner's house
We are on the case!
Who shall we talk to next? What can we ask them?
Keep the evidence coming in!
We asked questions, collected details and INTERVIEWED Mrs Beadle. She was very upset. We inquired It was 1867 so could he be in the mines? If he was in a factory he wouldn't be working long hours? He could have got somewhere by train? Where could he have gone? Could he be working as a sweep? Will he have to be in school? Remember it is 1867

Well done to all of your students who have submitted an entry, amazing work!
William Morris was an English artist, poet and politician. He was incredibly creative and he produced decorative art in a range of different forms, including: textiles, furniture, wallpaper, stained glass windows, book design and tapestry. Below are some facts about William Morris. Some the information you will probably already know, but hopefully some will be new to you. A famous William Morris quote is: Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.

At first Barnardo limited the number of boys who could use the Shelter. However, one evening, an 11-year old boy, John Somers (nicknamed 'Carrots') was turned away because the shelter was full.
Two days later Carrots was found dead, the cause malnutrition and exposure. From then on Barnardo vowed never to turn another child away and a sign was hung stating 'No Destitute Child Ever Refused Admission'.
In the space of seven years or so, and still not thirty years old, Thomas Barnardo had established
- a ragged school,
- a home (and employment agency)
a mission church.
- He had acquired more than a dozen properties in east London
- even bought up a children’s magazine.

I can rotate, translate and reflect.
I really enjoyed your reflections. You can use the mathematical vocabulary accurately.
Remember that RADIUS is double the DIAMETER.
Rember your actions for ROTATE, TRANSLATE and REFLECT
Some children pushed trucks of coal along mine tunnels. They were called 'putters'.
'Trappers' opened and shut wooden doors to let air through the tunnels. A trapper boy sat in the dark, with just a small candle, and no-one to talk to.
Some children started work at 2 in the morning and stayed below ground for 18 hours. Children working on the surface, sorting coal, at least saw daylight and breathed fresh air.
Not your father....Description, Action and Dialogue!
"This is him Fagin," said Dodger who introduced Oliver; "my friend Oliver Twist." Fagin smiled; and making a low bow to Oliver, took him by the hand, "We are very glad to see you, Oliver, very," said Fagin. "Dodger, take off the sausages; and draw a seat near the fire for Oliver. Ah you’re staring at the pocket handkerchiefs. There are many of them and we are washing them, that’s all Oliver; Can I describe what happens next using D.A.D? THE 'GAME'
that’s all. Ha, ha ha!"

Thoughts of Huskar
How terrible to die, to die in youth
To die in childhood, a bitter truth.
Life's breath taken by grasping water
Lambs trapped and held, then put to the slaughter.
To die in terror, in true petrifying evil dark
Cruel smothering of life, washing away every tiny spark.
To have to wait in screaming knowing
That death ever nearer was coldly flowing.
Little lives of no value to man or nature
Where was Earth with her motherly nurture?
When these babes of toil faced such torment
Was she the provider of this violent torrent?
Or did man alone create this untimely tomb
These infants barely left their mother's womb.
Another example of man with nature tied
And still no ones fault that these children died.
Brothers and brother's sisters, playmate and friend
Stood together in terror awaiting their end.
The swollen stream swept into that mine
Lord, twenty-six tiny souls were then made thine.
Taken from mothers but also from pain
To face underground hardships never again.
Children in heaven should at last know the sun
As miners we pray that this has already been done.
17th November 2002.
Daz Beattie is a poet from Barnsley. He is a retired coal miner and has written a
variety of poems about coal mining and life in Yorkshire.
Look at this primary source, this artefact tells us about a child miner. It is from the 1841 census.
We asked questions that provoked thought and discussion What would...Can he.....What if....Does.....Where is....Why...?
Later, after enjoying and analysing several poems WE READ THE PICTURE I wonder....?

We were learning collaboratively today and we were allowed to argue
We had to provide evidence and it was good to talk.
If you double a whole number it will always be even?
Fractions are less than one?
The difference btween a 1 2 digit number and its reverse is always a multiple of 9?
Go on ARGUE!
We are collecting and analysing data
We can calculate the mean, mode, median and range We can make a database Who won, drew and lost We looked for patterns strategies, tactics, fair play! What patterns can you see? A BIRD! KEEP THE DOORS SHUT! We love our learning! Such fun!

TOUGH CHALLENGE FOR RISK TAKERS
Following on from today's excellent Assembly where lots of Year 5 children showed and explained some of their recent learning, we would love it if you told us what you think about life at school, your learning and maybe how it could be even better! Please click this link and take a few minutes to answer all the questions. Please also explain your answers with justification - tell us why you think this (reasons).

We enjoyed sharing the maths learning in Year 1
we played their mathematical games
Better than monoploy!
THANK YOU YEAR ONE
In the Library we had to judge sources
The tree octopus does what? Lives where?
REMEMBER TO BE GOOGLE GOOD
Rotational symmetry is all araound us.
It was fun predicting and checking
We found a special rule with regular shapes
We made our own rotating patterns
we had to work out the segment angle for 6, 4 or 8 rotations
We carefully traced the pattern
And rotated it
What is YOUR answer?
PROBLEM SOLVING IS CHALLENGING BUT REWARDING
Estimate and check
We acted a bit of the Oliver script
There were stage directions and narrators
Lots of expression and body language
MRS MANTLE'S MUSEUM
What would you like to investigate next curators?!
WONDERFUL MATRIX POSTERS
Superb posters on CHANGE in Victorian times
Change in schools, inventions, factories or even your home country
Awesome inquiry and factual detail. We LOVE the graphs
Calculators, Oliver DVDs and Victorian fashions!
Monday- Maths (Maths Whizz) plus calculator problems REMEMBER to write down the number sentences.
Tuesday- NONE SET, Bank holiday
Wednesday- Presentation and Posters. Work to you SMART strengths, if you are Art smart include lots of pictures, flaps and enjoy the creative presentation. If you are NUMBER smart go all out on your facts and figures and include graphs, take a risk and produce a pie chart on a computer!
Please remember our first SRE lesson is on Wednesday morning and there is no school on Tuesday for the bank holiday. Keep up your readers cup reading and enjoy practicing your presentation. The Posters are due in on the 6th June and remember the focus is on the PROCESS and not just the PRODUCT. Talk to me if you require support or internet resources. Enjoy your learning!
We are hot seating different characters to gain deep understanding of motives, themes and emotions.
We asked GOLD questions (open ended) that began with How would...Why did...
BRONZE questions were closed and had one word answers. For example What is...
We will hotseat Nancy, Sykes, Fagin and Brownlow.
WHat would you ask?
Is it a GOLD question?
We chose key events in Oliver's life.
They were the turning points in the story. They changed the path
We then mapped his emotions and justified our decisions.
We used a thesuarus to up level vocabularly.
We found some juicy synonyms
We used other tools to help us write a DVD blurb
DVDs need to entice the potential watcher with a little information about the plot
Main characters and persuasive vocabulary
We shared ours, most had a question to draw you in.
We all tempted the watcher with vocabulary like VIOLEN, TALE OF TWISTS, DRAMATIC, MENACING VILLAINS, ELABORATE PLOT, DICKENS' BEST TALE,
We researched our exhibition for the museum today
We used books, indexes, contents and lots more to find out about clothes
We used KID REX and other search engines (but NOT wikis!)
We found out about different people from a scullery maide to a soldier
We used primary and secondary sources
How will we present our learning in the museum?
Who achieved their weekly targets and HOW?
Pentonimoes are made of 5 squares
We found out which had one or two lines of symmetry. Whe looked at the perimeter and area of each one too
We combined them and worked out the area and perimeter.
We investigated statements about shapes.
Today we investigated nets
We tried to visualise nets of closed cubes and then we made some
We predicted to see if they were nets
OPPOSITE sides of dice = 7
So we tried different nets and different positions
We were surprised by quite a few of our results
We enjoyed investigating and exploring 3D shape
We love mathematics
