Doubling and halving

Halving and doubling on PhotoPeach

We are learning to use what we know about doubling and halving to solve problems.  We are also using our knowledge of adding, subtracting and groupings (multiplication) to help us.  I wonder if we could use division.  When we divide we share...hmmm.  I wonder... 22 shared between 2 people...

The Aquarium

The Aquarium on PhotoPeach
At the Aquarium we had such fun and learnt a lot about the marine creatures that live in and around our waters.  Playing the penguin game made us think carefully about the environment the penguins live in and the dangers they can face. We also learnt about different marine life, food webs and how different creatures become endangered, threatened and extinct.  It is up to us to help make a difference and to keep our marine environment clean, healthy and safe.  What are some of the things that you can do to make a difference?

Room 8's Bucket Band

 We made a bucket band.  We learnt to keep a beat.  We read and played different rhythms.  It was fun!
The tricky part was starting and finishing together.

So what does skip counting, repeated addition, groups of and multiplication all have in common?

Leaf Poems

Leaf Poems on PhotoPeach
We have been learning to use descriptive words to paint a picture about a leaf for the reader.  We learnt about nouns, verbs, adverbs and adjectives.  Can you spot them in our poems?
When you read our poems you will see how clever we have been at shaping the words.  Our poem starts with one word, grows to two, grows to three and then finishes with four words.  We think that we have been strong writers!

Autumn Art

Autumn Trees on PhotoPeach
We are learning to make an Autumn Collage. A collage is when you use different materials to create an art work.  We blended Autumn colours to create the background. We tried to balance our art work by using all the space on our page.  We are learning to layer materials to create texture and interest.
