In Science this term, we have been learning about plants and animals. We chose two different locations in the school grounds to carry out a survey. We went bug hunting and looked carefully at the different plants and animals we found in both or one of the locations. Back in class we observed the creatures carefully and created fact files on some of the bugs and plants we found.
We also visited the Wetlands to explore the habitats and the creatures and wildlife that live there. We went pond dipping and were all amazed at how many creatures we found in just one sweep of the net! We talked about food chains and why these animals live in the Wetlands.
In Design and Technology we have been investigating different types of puppets. We then all designed and made our very own finger puppet of a character from any traditional story. We used felt for the main part of the puppet and then used feathers, googly eyes, wool and other small bits to decorate and to make the puppet look like what we had designed. We chose how we wanted to join the felt together. Some of us chose to use glue, some chose to sew and others stapled. When we evaluated our handiwork we found out that sewing the fabric together was the strongest and looked the nicest.
