We have loved learning about the wonders and delights of the animal kingdom this half term for our exciting topic Paws, Claws and Whiskers. We were fortunate enough to have a visit from Ranger Dean, who brought in his animal friends for us to interact with.
Here is an example of the wonderful learning opportunities we have experienced this half term...
Science - comparing animals
Geography - comparing countries
Art - exploring different animal prints and textures
ICT - retrieving digital data and research
PE - throwing and catching
British Science Week 2018
To celebrate British Science Week in year we one we dedicated an entire week to conducting experiments to find out about animals and camouflage. Our topic hook was the question 'Should mice be green?' and to find out the answers we hid paper mice around our playground to see which would blend in the best. Our scientific process involved research, making predictions, conducting experiments and evaluating the results. Have a look at some of the amazing pieces of work we enjoyed producing in this very exciting week!
