We have had so much fun today with an amazing start to sports week with our sports day! Teamwork! I am very proud that everyone tried their best! Which was your favourite bit?
We saw lots of wonderful birds and different amphibians and reptiles in beautiful places, we even found huge dinosaur models! Can you name any of the animals? (click numbers for more pictures)
Even more animals including some tall giraffes! Can you find any interesting facts about these animals? (click numbers to see more pictures)
The sea lions caught hoops and balls, got litter from the water, pretended to be sharks and did flips, we found out that they used these skills in the wild to catch fish (their prey) and scare away predators! (click the numbers to see more pictures) The elephant was using her strong trunk to crush branches and eat her food, we found out that she is a herbivore!
We saw lots of animals at Blackpool Zoo, including some very entertaining orangutans! (click numbers for more pictures)
We have loved having tadpoles in our class, watching them grow. We have learnt about the life cycle of frog, the differences between amphibians and reptiles and we have even made some amazing information booklets for how to look after tadpoles!
We loved planting seeds and observing the changes as the plants grew. We even wrote instructions for Reception. We discussed what plants need to grow best. Can you remember what the tallest plants had to help them grow? (click numbers for more pictures)
We have been having lots of fun being creative in DT this week, we have been designing and making our own bird feeders! I cannot wait to see the finished products!
In Literacy we retold the story Handa's Surprise, which is from another culture. We looked at the different African animals and fruits in the story. Miss McAfee got some different African fruits for us to taste (we loved some but the lemon was tangy and bitter!) we used adjectives, like in the story, to describe them. We then changed the animals to create our own stories and wrote them using such amazing language! Miss McAfee was very proud of our final big write! In Maths we practised finding fractions with the fruits!
