Week 8 05.03.18

We began the week, by reading our new class story (Australian inspired) Edward the Emu, an emu who didn’t want to be an emu and explored the zoo trying to be different animals!  We enjoyed creating our own characters to replace Edward and going on our own adventures around the school! 


In art, we created Australian animals to help decorate and bring our role play area to life! We used a range of media including oil pastels, pencil colours, paints and collage using the correct colours to hopefully turn our role play corner into an Australian environment.  We have koalas, kookaburras, kangaroos, crocodiles . . . to name a few! Please take a look when you join us on Wednesday morning for reading time! 


In Science, we have began to learn about habitats (where an animal lives), identifying that different animals live in different habitats to suit their needs and ultimately for survival!  On Wednesday morning we visited Oxhey Park becoming detectives to spot as many different animals and habitats as possible.  We only spotted a few, the animals were a little shy!  We saw ducks, squirrels, birds and a nest and bird box.  Then on Thursday, we spent the day designing and creating our own animal habitats which we loved, being so inspired by our visit to the park and learning about the different animals categorises from all around the world.  We have the Arctic, desert, jungle and rainforest with so many different animals!  Please take a look at them in class as they will be displayed and we can’t wait to share them with you.  We ended the week by finishing our habitats, adding all the finishing touches!


Next week is Science week, which we are very excited about and we look forward to inviting you on Friday afternoon (16th March) to see all the great Science investigations and learning we will be doing thoroughout week!


Another super week Tigers, very creative and focused, we’re so proud of your team work and efforts too!
