The poem is about that everyone is different but we have all got the same features.
I think the author has wrote the poem about everyone because everyone is different and everyone has the same features. I like the whole poem.
I will try to make a video of me reading a poem and emailing it
You have really understood the message of the poem. I look forward to seeing your video.
Spanish is a great way for us to communicate with other people who speak Spanish
I think this poem is really inspirational.The author wrote this so he could tell people that no matter how different you are at the end of the day we are still humans.I really like this poem.
I think it is an awesome poem too!
2.i found this one quite tricky but I think the answer is 14.2
3.no because when you divide a number it gets smaller and 64 is larger than 32
Have another look at the number line. Can you work out what each dividend is worth? In the first number line the arrow is exactly between 2 and 3.
The second question is really tricky. Can you draw something to help you. I counted up in 2s and 5s and when I could subtract 36 and both the red and blue counters are the same I got the correct answer. So if there is 2 red counters there would be 5 blue counters. If there were 4 red counters there would be 10 blue counters, then if there were 6 red counters there would be 15 blue counters…and so on.
For question 3 we haven’t multiplied by a decimal, but if you 64 x 1/2 is 32 (64 lots of a half). Which would be the same as 64 x 0.5.
for maths my estimation was £66.61 and my answer was £55.50
What did you do to estimate? I always find rounding numbers to the nearest whole amount useful as I can then add them mentally.
2.24 red counters
Fantastic work, Jacob. Isn’t it interesting that dividing by a decimal gives you an that’s bigger than the dividend! Did you do any more maths?
I have done my poetry and it is great i did it as the first thing and at first i thought you had to rhyme it but you dont.
That’s great Harley – it would be good to see what you have done. Remember you can email it to me if you like.
I can hear some rhyming and two repeated words different and the same.
I think it is about how we may look different and like different things we are all the same.
maybe he didn’t write the poem for someone in particular he might have wrote it for everyone who feels different.
I like that the poem makes you feel happy and special but I don’t like hat the rhyming doest carry in through the whole thing.
I think that it is important to express your-self and be brave when reading a poem aloud.
Well done Amy, you’ve really understood this poem.
I wonder if you could change it so it does rhyme throughout?
Maths I did 5 min of ttr
3.no because when you divide a number always gets smaller and i think Elijah got confused in dividing and he accidentally doubled 32 by 2
1. £13 £13.03
2. £8.58 £8.68
3. £7.08 £7.08
4. £17.57 £17.61
5. £8.93 £8.93
Look at question 1 again, A is exactly half way between 2 and 3.
Well done for getting question 2 right, that was rather tricky!
I haven’t taught you this yet, but we were going to explore what happens when you multiply a number by a fraction or decimal. 5 x 1/2 means 5 lots of 1/2. 5 lots of 1/2 are 2 and a half or 2.5. Therefore 5 x 0.5 – 2.5.
So if you multiply 64 by 0.5 you would get 32.
Great estimations, Could you round the money to the nearest whole pound?
6 possible answers
When anger erupts
It looks for a opening
When fire erupts
It looks like its burning
The happiness still stands
Even thought its lost its brand
The look on their faces
When they see shame
The happiness is bright
The darkness will fade
It might ruin our parade
But it won’t ruin the maid
It locks us in a place
Where happiness can’t come
The darkness lives
But the happiness won’t come here
1.I think its telling you about different things for when you face changes
2.Because it is fun and it calms him down
3.I like it but I just don’t feel the rythme
4.I think its impoprtant to have a rythme and have a subject on it and have a ryhmeing poem
1. c its 24.5
2. 24 red counters were in the box at the start
3.No because you if you divide by one it still does’nt = 64
£1 £1 £2.08
there could over hundred ways of making £2.08
Done a picture of my brand new washing machine
1.we learnt hola and buenos dias and uno dos tres quatro ext
Great work today, you really understood the message the poet was trying to share with the readers.
We haven’t taught you this yet, but we were going to explore what happens when you multiply a number by a fraction or decimal. 5 x 1/2 means 5 lots of 1/2. 5 lots of 1/2 are 2 and a half or 2.5. Therefore 5 x 0.5 – 2.5.
So if you multiply 64 by 0.5 you would get 32.
I know Mrs Byfield would love to receive an image of your picture.
If buenos dias means good morning. Can you tell me what buenos tardes means?
I think that this poem is about that we are all part of this world but we are different. that we can make changes in life. what I like about this poem is that the meaning is that we have are own special personality .
I think it’s a beautiful poem! Did you have a go at performing it? Email me if you did get a chance!
i have done a pencil dictionary of a flower and have used a lot of different strokes
1) The poet uses the word the same all the time.
2) I think it was about how we are one person and have so many feelings.
3) He has wrote it for someone in his family.
4) I think reading the poem made me feel happy, the warm hugs were nice.
When writing I think u should be brave and confident and not be scared with who you are.
Great work Rose, you have understood the poem well and I’m glad it made you feel happy. What a lovely message to be confident about who you are!
2. Not worked it out yet!
3. Yes but he has divided it by a half
Be sure to email either myself of Miss Clancy if you are unsure about question 2!
How strange that dividing by a half gives you an answer bigger than a dividend!
A greeting in Italian is “Ciao come stai” which means “hello how are you”
Thank you for posting on the blog. Well done for having a go at the Spanish. I am very good thank you. Come stai?
I did Spanish and learnt lots of different phrases
I know how to say hello in Albanian Prshendetje
I can hear the words giggle and wiggle rhyme and it says “same ___, same___, different ___.” twice in a verse and for three verses to reinforce the message that we are the same on the inside.
I think he wrote it to inspire children to write poems about how people look different on the outside, but we are the same on the inside.
I like how it goes “same ___, same___, different ___.” because no matter how I say it, the rhythm sounds soothing.
I was far out on a few because I only added the pounds and not the pennies. If I’d rounded the pounds and then added them, I will have been more accurate.
I did problem of the day number 1 and I checked with my dad.
number 2’s answer was 24 red counters because I put it in 12 groups of 2+2+3.
Number 3’s answer is yes because if you divide 32 by 1/2, it = 64.
Did you have a go at performing the poem? Isn’t it a special poem at this time of our lives!
Maths works looks super, how often do you estimate in real life?
I think the poem is about trying to stay positive or sharing positivity because the poem mentions the sadness that we all sometimes have and that eventually we’ll overcome it.
I think the author wrote it for everybody, not a specific person, he’s just trying to make everyone Happy.
I like every aspect of the poem, there isn’t really anything I particularly dislike about it.
I think the important thing when performing poetry is to stay focused on the poem and make your voice flow along with the words before you.
I’ll write up my own poem and send it to Miss Spaven, looking forward to it! 🙂
Really interesting thoughts Isaac – well done! I like the idea that the poet is trying to make everyone happy.
That sounds amazing – I’m sure Miss Spaven would love to read it.

Amazing maths work, Toby! Well done.
Do you find it difficult to estimate? I always try to get on with a proper method!
1 – 24.9
2 – 24
3 – It’s not possible because you can’t get a number that’s higher by dividing it.
1 I can hear the rhyme giggle and wiggle and a pattern that is each verse has same before different
2 i think its about that we look different but we do the same things like laughing giggling and dance i think this because even if we look different we still are the same in our hearts.
3 I think he has written it for children who are shy and don’t think belong in that place.
4 The thing i like about the poem is that it means we are all the same not different like in the merchant of venice when Antonio and his friends bullied Shylock because he was a jew.
5 I think the important thing is to not be shy and just be brave and believe in yourself so you can unleash your voice

You’ve worked incredibly hard this morning. I like have you have compared your knowledge of other characters to this poem.
Well done for completing the first maths problem.
The second question is quite hard, but if you use your knowledge of multiples you will get there. For ever 2 red counters there are 5 blue counters.
Keep going until you get enough blue counters to subtract 36. Are the red counters the same yet?
Did you try and learn any Spanish?
I think the poem is about emotions because it says, “The same laughter erupts”, and that tells me that it telling you about what the people are feeling.
I know that the author has wrote it for everybody because it is about how people should react and what’s the same and what’s different.
I like the part that says, “The same laughter erupts because it makes me feel comfortable and it makes me smile with the way the author has used erupts nevertheless it doesn’t mean erupts and just that it means erupts as in it is fulfilling the air with laughter. There was nothing I disliked about the poem I think every word in it is fabulous and I wouldn’t change one word of it.
I’m glad you’ve enjoyed this poem Emmie – I also really like it!
You’ve really understood what the poem was trying to say – well done!
I like that line too and well done for unpicking the word ‘erupts’.
Hola WFPS espero que estés teniendo un día divertido! De Emmie
Can I just say one thing about Miss Lowes online story time reading I just loved it and I am looking forward to listening to more of your episodes.
Aww Emmie – that is lovely to hear! Miss Spaven has read chapter 2 for today’s story so make sure you listen to that at some point! I’m reading chapter 3 tomorrow – it’s a good one!
Miss Lowe 🙂
Olivia has sent in her artwork via email
The rest of the maths:
£13.50 / £13.30
£9 / £8.68
£7 / £7.08
£17.50 / £17.61
£9 / £8.63
for question 2 in maths I think the answer is 11
3.it is possible because 2048 ÷ 32 = 64
I think the question means 32 divided by _____ equals 64. It does work but can you work out how?
I will try it today as extra work
Well done Aaron!
I know Mrs Rich is still looking for people to have a go at the singing challenge for Rise up – maybe you could have a go (see her blog for details) as I remember you having a great singing voice!
1.A=2.5; B=22; C=24.5
2. I think there were 24 red counters because for 24 red counters there were 60 blue counters and 60-36=24, so there are the same amount of red and blue counters.
3. It is not possible to divide 32 and get 64 because 32 is smaller than 64.
5.£1.05+£2.03+£1=£4.08; Or £1.53+£1.85+£0.70=£4.08
I think the poem is about us, people, we are all different but have the same features. It was written for us. I like this poem because the author describes what do we have in common and different.
Fantastic work as always, Elvin! All looks good.
It sounds very strange, but with reference to question 3, if you divide a number by 0.5(a half) it is the same as if you double it. so 32 / 0.5 = 64!
It’s a strange concept and we haven’t had a look at doing that in school yet but maybe you check the answer out on a computer (don’t tell Miss Lowe!)
Do you like the poem? I think it’s a special message!
