We have been working on our sketching skills using the Austin's Butterfly concept. We had a go at sketching a butterfly and then shared these with our partners. Our partners then gave us areas to improve on. After getting our feedback, we then had another go at sketching using their suggestions to help. We repeated this three times and we couldn't believe the improvements in our sketches! As well as this, we focused on fine lines, tones and shades to produce a great parrot sketch.
We have been working hard on rounding. Working with 6 digit numbers and rounding them to the nearest 10, 100, 1000 and even 10,000! Miss Dent has taught us a song to help us to remember.
"It's 5 or above you round up. If it's below 4 you round down!"
The Secret Garden
In order to help our writing come alive, we went and explored the Secret Garden. We used our sense and thought about what we could see, hear, smell and touch. We created mini books full of our ideas. These ideas will help us to write a setting description. We can't wait to get writing!
As our Wow, to introduce our enquiry on the Amazon Rainforest, we went on a school trip to Bristol Zoo. While we were there, we took part in a workshop on rainforests. We learnt lots of interesting information about the different layers within a rainforest and the animals that live there. We met some different animals too: a stick insect that camouflages itself as a leaf, a hissing cockroach and a tenrec. We had great fun and are looking forward to learning a lot more during our enquiry
