LEARNING ZONE ...
English - character descriptions
We have been using the Learn Pads to research key information about our chosen polar characters. We then identified some COOL adjectives to describe and bring our animals to life!
Science - Solar system
In our Science we have been learning about our Solar system and how long it takes each of our planets to orbit the sun! We created a human solar system - it was so much fun!!
Mathematics - Capacity
We have worked in teams to estimate the capacity of a number of containers and then we used our measuring skills to find the accurate measurements!
P.E - Orienteering
In our P.E lessons we have been looking at maps and symbols. We have worked in small teams to create funny faces using our given maps!
R.E - Hope
In our R.E lessons we have been discussing waiting patiently in the hope that Jesus returns. We have discussed how we can wait and what waiting feels like to us.
Design Technology - Building Igloos
In our Design Technology lessons, we have researched Igloos and identified lots of information about where we might find them, what they are made from, how they are strong and who would live in them. We then used our research to design our own Igloo. After all the planning was completed we set to work and created our icy Igloos. They're BRRRRRRRilliant!!
