Our current learning experience is...

Here Today...Gone Tomorrow

Can you imagine a world without pandas, polar bears or penguins? Hopefully animals that we love to see today will still be there for future generations to enjoy tomorrow.

During this learning experience, we will look into the growing problem of endangered animals. Many animals are under threat of extinction and we will look into why they are endangered and what we can do to help.

As part of our literacy work, we will research an endangered animal of our choice. We will then use various ICT programmes to present this information to an audience.

We also plan to look into how animals have adapted to live in particular climates, what they eat and how one change in a food chain can have devastating effects. We will also design our own weird and wonderful species and habitats.

In art and design we plan to design and make a model animal that looks like our favourite endangered animal.

Class Debate

We enjoyed taking on the role of hotel owners, villagers and local people opposing the new build of a hotel on their beach. Why? The green turtles nest on the beach and any development will destroy their nesting sites.

A good debate ensued!

Romero Britto Artwork

We have been looking at the art work of Romero Britto. He paints in bright colours but still makes the paintings recognisable. We had a go following his painting style when creating our self-portraits.

Please visit our Gallery Page to see a selection of of self portraits.

Our Cup Challenge

To help us further develop our Building Learning Power Muscles, Miss Oliver set us a 'Cup Challenge'. We couldn't touch the cups and could onle use elastic bands! It was tricky and needed a lot of collaboration, perseverance, planning and revising!

We had great fun!
