This week the children had a competition to decide who was going to write the website update. They all wrote a draft for the website and I had to choose which one to publish! It was a tricky decision but after much deliberation the winner is....Casey! Here is her summary of our week:
Year 3 have been working on Zoolab and we saw a millipede, snake, beared dragon, rat and tarantula. Then on Tuesday at swimming we learned how to help people if they are in trouble in the water and also how to keep safe. Next on Thursday we watched the 'Wizard of Oz' and we have been describing the lion. Afterwards we learned about music and we are practicing for our performance on 17th December.
This week Year 4 started to look at rivers and the terminology used to describe them. We did two different experiments with sand and then with paint to see whether we could make tributaries and spot a confluence. On Thursday we also got to enjoy Zoolab. We loved the bearded dragon and we were so surprised to learn that is it an Australian creature.
We enjoyed working with different classes when Zoolab came in and meeting lots of exotic creatures. We've started learning Stop the Cavalry with Miss Latus and are looking forward to peforming it in the Christmas concert in a couple of weeks.
