Term 2 Week 5

It has been another busy week of learning this week as we race towards the Christmas holidays. In Literacy we have been looking more at debates and identifying for and against arguments to support our opinions. We ended the week with a class debate about whether animals should be kept in zoos. The class were so confident and articulate with their ideas. 

In Maths we linked our Science learning to maths and collected data about the minibeasts that live in our local environment. We used classification keys to identify creatures in our local environment and created a tally and used this to create bar graphs, which we used to answer questions. 

In our Geography learning we have been looking at the land uses in the Amazon and how people use different parts of the rainforest for living, farming, mining and logging. In Art and design we finally managed to make our recycled animals. We have been looking at improving our techniques working with sculpture based on the work of Michelle Reader. We used our DT knowledge of materials and their characteristics to select the best materials for making our animals. 

We hope you have a lovely weekend.
