We have been making good use of the lovely weather this week and have been taking our learning outside. We sketched pictures of our work partners in movement stills for our topic on 'Drawing' in Art.
We also practised the rounds we had made up in the style of 'London's Burning' for our English topic on Repetitive Songs and Poems.
Trip to Paradise Wildlife Park
We had a lovely sunny day for our trip to Paradise Wildlife Park last Friday. The children enjoyed a talk by one of the zoo staff about animal habitats around the world which tied in with our Science topic for this term. We also visited the very realistic dinosaur park and as you can see from the photos it was quite terrifying! In the afternoon we had a chance to explore the park and one of the highlights was watching the penguins having their lunch of sprats.
In Geography this term, we have been studying the African country of Kenya. We have looked at the climate, landscapes, wildlife and compared it to the UK. We made traditional Masai necklaces and watched a short film about the tribal custom of jumping from standing to great heights. This was our focus for PE this term so we had a go ourselves and found it suprisingly tricky (see below).
