For our WOW day we were lucky enough to have ‘Jungle Jonathan’ come in to school with his collection of exotic rainforest animals. We encountered a tarantula, a scorpion, stick insects, a gecko and even a snake! We learnt about the effects that deforestation is having on these animals' homes. We are looking forward to finding out about what we can do to help prevent this from happening.
We loved pulling apart a flower to identify all the parts to help us learn about pollination and fertilisation. Each part of the flower was identified and labelled, we also discussed the role it played in pollination.
Today we held our Pupil Voice elections. After listening to the candidates we then decided who we wanted to vote for. We made sure that we didn't tell anyone who we were voting for- it was a secret ballot after all!
We can't wait for the results to be revealed!
Today, we went to Red Class in the Infants to share our amazing science mini books about the life cycle of various animals, amphibians and insects. Our challenge was to create a mini book explaining the life cycle of an animal that a younger child would understand.
As you can see Red Class children were extremely interested in our science mini books!
Adverbs of possibility
We are excited to move on to our new target in writing this week! We explored the idea of adverbs of possibility and investigated how best to put them in our writing! Firstly, we had to decide what the meaning of each word was, and put them on a scale. We thought a human washing line would be best! Finally, we added them to sentences and created our own.
We are observing things over time. We predicted what our secret garden might look like next term. We enjoyed sketching what it looked like today.
We are very lucky to have specialist gymnastic coaches from Bristol Rugby to help us improve our leaps, turns, flips and balance. Watch out Team GB, we will see you in the next Olympics!
As a class, we have been reviewing what being a ‘Purple Learner’ is all about this week. Today, we looked at collaborative learning and unpicked what it feels like, what it sounds like and what it looks like working in a group on a collaborative task.
Our mission, for our collaborative task, was to produce a document or presentation on how to survive a night in the Amazon rainforest. We were introduced to the task by reading the first chapter of the text ‘The Explorer’ by Katherine Rundell, which creates tension by describing the moments before a plane crashes in the rainforest. We shared lots of ideas, thought about what we would need to survive and by talking together, we worked collaboratively on the task.
