Hello and welcome to our Year 2/3/4 class page! Our topic this term is environments with a focus particularly on the rainforest. We have created a big rainforest collage for our book corner and are enjoying learning about where the rainforests are situated and the animals that live there. We have been learning about the climate in the rainforest and have put together a weather report in small groups to explain what the weather is like in different rainforests around the world and why.
For homework we created a 'rainforest in a box' showing your understanding of the different layers of the rainforest and the animals that live there. We enjoyeed show our rainforest dioramas to the rest of the class and we had some very imaginative ideas!
Linked to our learning on different environments, we are taking part in an activity set up by the Wildlife Trusts called '30 Days Wild'. It tries to encourage children to spend some time exploring outside in the wild every day for the month of June. The children have been really enthusiastic about their wild activities and so far we have squelched our toes into the mud and grass, scattered seed bombs, created observational drawings of nature and created a nature table display for the classroom.
If you have any interesting fossils, rocks, plants, feathers etc. from home that you would like to bring in to add to our nature table, that would be great!
You can download an activity pack for the 30 Days Wild to complete at home from www.wildlifetrust.org
After the break the fire and rescue service came in to our class to talk about safety and to talk about fires. We realised there can be a lot of situations that they deal with. Also we played a game to see who could put on their fire suit on first because when there's a fire they have got to hurry. The fire fighters showed us a video about fire safety and we learnt a rule 'to stop, drop and roll' if your clothes catch on fire. Report by Cerys and Amy.
Fire & Rescue visit December 2018
On Wednesday 24th May KS2 went to Bristol and did some activities. KS2 made some animations with special wristbands with our barcodes. Year 3/4 did a workshop about the digestive system and Year 5/6 did a forensic theme day. We also got to look around the place.
