DT - We have been given the brief to design a new sandwich suitable for a packed lunch on trip to the zoo. First we investigated what sandwiches are already on the market. We looked at their packaging and tasted them. Next we designed our own sandwiches. We learned the skills needed to make them and then made our own. Finally we tasted them and evaluated them.
Our trip to CHESTER ZOO - We had a fantastic trip. We learned about lots of the different animals and where they come from. Did you know male sun bears are much larger than females? Jaguars can be different colours and patterns! Can you believe sloths only choose to come down from their ropes once a week?
Science - We looked after our ducks for 5 weeks! Their feathers began to change to white and they developed real personalities. They have now gone to love on a farm where they will have much more space!
Our beautiful ducks - as part of our Science work we have been looking at life cycles, including how animals are born and how they grow. Here are some photos of our beautiful ducks, Diamond, Donald, DJ and Dennis. They are a few days old in these pictures :)
Topic - Science - We have been learning about life cycles. We have been lucky enough to have our own ducks. We have loved watching them hatch and grow. We have also learned about what living things need to survive and the meaning of the words carnivore, herbivore and omnivore.
Literacy - In Literacy we have been looking at choral poetry. We enjoyed a poem called The Magic Box. We then designed our own aquarium and used this as inspiration to create our own poem called The Magic Aquarium. We have used repeated phrases, alliteration and similes in our poem.
Computing - We have been using the app 'Story Creator' to create a talkign book version of the King of the Tiny Things, which we have been studying in Literacy. We used text, photos, drawing, voice recording and sound effects to create super talking books which met the design brief.
Numeracy - In Numeracy we have been finding fractions of amounts. Here are some photos of the super work we have done!
History - We found out about toys from the past. Mrs Tarbuck came in and showed us her collection of very interesting old toys.
Computing - we learned abut programmable toys. We learned how to give directions and then used these skills to move the Bee bots around a maze and try to get them from one place to another. If it did not work at first we debugged our program and had another go.
Numeracy - We have been learning about adding and subtracting numbers on a number line. We have also been comparing numbers. We used cubes to help us!
