                               GUIDED READING

WALT: create a simple poem.


My mythical creature

Fast runner

Kind eater

Strong lifter

Fierce biter

Crazy killer

He's a meat eater

He acts like a cheater

He breathes fire

He is a dier

He lives in a cave

He is very brave

Has sharp claws

He snores

Noone one knows he has a den

Noone knows he has the side of men

He has a cat

That's very fast

For our Art lesson we used some chalk and crayons and rubbed it on a special piece of rough card to create some amazing Stone Age pictures.

Take a look at some of our examples above. 


We worked as nutritionists to analyse the food habits of our client and recorded our results. Take a look above


We learned how shadows are formed using light. 

We also made pictures in the dark using our torches which we designed.


Investigating Light:

During this experiment we described what we could see by making a few holes at the top of the box, then we made holes at the side of the box and looked through to see what we could see. Next we used a torch and shined a light to see what difference using a torch made. We first, shined a light at the top of the box, then on the side. We recorded our results in a table.
