Hereford's October Blog
In English, we looked at non-chronological reports and how we can write information. These reports were all about our favourite sea creatures such as jellyfish and whales. We used these reports to help us find out more about these underwater creatures. We then made our own sea creatures and created a non-chronological report about them. We talked about their habitat, diet and an amazing fact that we could think of about them. Later on in our English work we started watching 'Something Fishy'. We learnt how to sequence events chronologically and use adjectives to describe what we could see. This was lots of fun and we really enjoyed this! For the last week of the half term we have continued to look at sequencing events chronologically, by retelling what we did on our picnic in the hall.
In Maths we have been looking at subtracting numbers from 20 at the beginning of the week. We used a lot of groupings with cubes and number lines to help us. We looked at how we need to make sure that our number is getting smaller to be successfully subtracting. We then started to look into equal groups and how we could use this to start multiplying. We saw that we needed equal groups to be able to see how many we could times by. At the end of the half term, we have started to look at halving numbers. We started this by cutting a piece of bread into halves.
In Computing we used Bee Bots. We have looked into positional language and how we can give successful instructions to a robot or a toy that we have to program. We have been trying to move our Bee Bots from one space on a carpet to another, using instructions and coming up with our own. This has been great fun. Bee Bots were also the inspiration for our display in the hall. We also made sure that we knew our lefts and rights. To do this we looked our hands and if we could make an L we knew it was our left hand.
We had the pleasure to be apart of a dance workshop during October also. We joined York class and did some dancing. This was super fun and we all did so well. We had to watch what the teacher did and try and do the same. We then had to sequence this together. It was amazing!
