The children have been busy writing about an imaginary creature from the Rainforest. Here’s a selection to whet your appetites. We’ll add some more as time permits.
Did you know?
The Unicaw lives in the Amazon Rainforest of South America. It is mainly found in Brazil. The Unicaw prefers the Emergent Layer because it is high up in the sky. It is very picky on food, it only eats things from the Emergent Layer.
The Jagasnake is nocturnal and walks in the dark and if an animal tries to eat it, the Jagasnake will eat them and have it for it’s supper. It’s favourite foods are bananas, pies, monkeys, deer and nuts.
The Charrot has a long tail what’s quite surprising. And at night the vicious cats go hunting. And when the Charrot is on his journey for food and when he gets to water a Charrot then can swim through it.
Last week, during book week, the school went penguin mad! The whole school used the book 365 Penguins to base their learning on. In maths pupil looked at; how numbers could be represented, odd and evens, doubling and halving, keeping totals, arrays, square numbers, days of the week, month and year. The also looked at Pascal’s triangle, distances to visit the penguins and time to get there. To name but a few of the activities.
In English instructions for looking after penguins, poems, creative stories and non-chronological reports were some of the areas covered by classes.
Science looked at habitats, adaptations, food chains and classification. The art can be seen in the library!
The children had a great week studying the same book but learning in completely different ways!
