In Maths, we are now looking at finding the perimeter of a shape. We started off by finding the perimeter of the netball court on the playground and then we moved back into the classroom to find the perimeter of some classroom objects. Here we are trying to work out the perimeter of a table.

Our English topic this term is the ‘Snoozeatron’.  It is an explanation text based around how the Wallace and Gromit invention the ‘Snoozeatron’ works. We will be learning the explanation text and then inventing our own Wallace and Gromit style inventions. We created short pieces of drama to help us remember our text. In this picture, the children are being the automatic tucking in device and are tucking in our very sleepy Wallace.

An amazing two days at Folly Farm

In Science this week, we have been looking at our local habitats and micro habitats that surround us. We have looked at the different invertebrates we could find in and around the school playground and also started to do a local habitat survey. We looked at the changes to our environment and how this can impact on living things. We then discussed different ways in which we can help animals and our environments.

In Science this term we are learning about ‘Living things and their Habitats’. We started by looking at what living things have in common and then began to group some living things such as animals and plants. We then looked at vertebrates and invertebrates. This week we looked at classifying vertebrates by first sorting them into mammals, fish, birds, reptiles and amphibians. In this picture we are working in small groups to classify different animals. Next we we will be looking closer at invertebrates and going on an invertebrate hunt around school.
