This half term in 6E

Sunday, 10 December 2017

This half term in 6E, we have started our topic of Evalution and Charles Dawin. We have made our own Fossils and we can’t wait to see what they look like! we have been learning about his five year trip around the world. The animals that he found were unreal. He found animals such as the gallapagos turtle, only found there, and the evolved finch. That is only some of his amazing work. We loved this topic that Miss Eggleton taught us and we can’t  wait to learn about our next topic. 

This week in 4T

Thursday, 7 December 2017

Alongside practising for our upcoming Christmas performance (which is set to be fantastic) 4T have been getting musically creative in the classroom too. As part of our learning about Ernest Shackleton’s perilous voyage across the Antarctic, we composed our very own soundscapes. Inspired by the magnificent Endurance (Shackleton’s ship), the icy landscape and the many dogs on board, we used a range of instruments to recreate what might have been heard and experienced by the courageous crew. Our drums were certainly a popular choice!
