Summer 2

Week 1

In Science, we have started our topic 'Animals including humans'. In our first lesson we looked at a range of animals and their babies. We grouped the babies of living things based on whether they looked like their adult or not. For example, a kitten looks like a cat but a tadpole does not look like a frog.  Penguins enjoyed thinking about whether they looked like their parents or not.  One child said that they did not look like their mother, as she dyes the colour of her hair.

We also grouped these animals based on their animal group - fish, birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians. Some of these were tricky to identify, but we agreed the fish and the birds were the easiest!

Week 3

In D.T., we followed our plan to create the beast from our defeat the beast story which we have written in English. We sculptured the clay carefully to create our beast.  

Week 4

Turtles had an amazing day at Call of the Wild!

Enid Blyton - The Famous Five

C.S Lewis - The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe 

J.K Rowling - Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone

We have recreated these front covers in our sketch books whilst learning about each author.
