Polar Regions Homework Showcase
Today we shared our fantastic topic homework with our parents. From PowerPoints and posters to models, videos and cakes. Mrs Corbett was extremely impressed with all of the high quality work we had produced!
Today we went to Twycross Zoo and saw lots of different species of animals. We saw alot of monkeys showing off, Asian elephants eating and even a giant tortoise! In the afternoon, we went into a classroom and learnt about things which are living, dead and have never been alive. We got to stroke some animals including an extremely fluffy chinchilla and even a cockroach!
St Patrick's Day
Today we celebrated St Patrick's Day! We started our day with a special assembly led by year 6 St Patrick's House Captains. We learnt about who St Patrick was and what he did. Afterwards we spent the morning baking soda bread. We followed a recipe and were able to measure accurately by reading scales. The adults were particularly impressed with how well we worked as part of a team, listening to one another and helping each other out. At lunchtime, Mr Bown came and judged our bread. He will reveal the results of the competition next Friday!
We're Going on a Polar Bear Hunt
We have been reading We're Going on a Lion Hunt by David Axtell and decided to write our own version about polar bears. We had great fun jumping over icebergs, swirling through snow storms, sliding across ice, crawling through an ice tunnel and finally creeping into an ice cave where we met a polar bear!
This week we discovered lots of strange objects on our playground including gloves, goggles and frozen ice blocks with photographs inside. We thought that they might belong to Captain Scott and wrote a letter to Mr Bown to inform him about this strange discovery!
We have been thinking about world events beyond our control and how it makes us feel.
