We practiced coding in computing. We had to make algorithms, which we know are instructions that a computer follows, to make characters in a game move.

When there was a problem with our algorithm, debugged it. That means we looked for the problem and fixed it.

We learned about instructions. We started the unit by following instructions to make a craft. We made autumn hedgehogs, snowflakes and hand-print aliens!

We learned about light and dark in science. We know that some things, like the sun and light bulbs, make light and that shiny things reflect light. When there is no light it is dark. Shadows are made when light is blocked.

We went on a trip to Bruce Castle Museum to look at old toys as part of our history topic! We were able to touch and compare old and new teddy bears and cars. We sorted the toys by what materials they were made of. We were even able to play with the old toys, just like children did in the past.
