Welly Week and other stuff…
This week we have been observing how shadow lengths change. We used a ruler to create a shadow and checked its length every ten minutes. We are learning how to use Bar Modelling so we used it to calculate how much the shadow had lengthened during the afternoon.
In maths, we used bar Modelling to give us a visual picture of the word problems we were trying to solve. This helped us see which numbers we had and what we needed to do to reach the answer. Bar Modelling rocks!
On Friday we put on our wellies and saw how the hedgerow on the field is changing with the onset of autumn. The leaves have changed colour and there are fewer small creatures than there was in September. There were fewer flowers too so maybe the small animals like bees have gone because there is less food!
