To get up to speed with our Rainforest topic, we completed some research on the famous Amazon. We looked at the flora and fauna of the river and the forest, studied the modern and ancient civilisations the jungle has been home to, and examined the threats that humans pose to the rainforest.
We also used this an opportunity to try out our collaboration and questioning skills, which we are developing as part of the new Golden Owl award! We worked with our partners and generated questions which we then found the answer to using our research.
When looking at the moon, we used oreos to learn and understand what the different phases are? Here are some pictures at different stages of our learning. How do you think we have done?
As part of our research on the Amazon, we did a quick but of research of the animals that live there. Do you recognise any of them?
Whilst looking at our unit on ‘Wonder’ we got to create our own characters based on Auggie. We also created our own ‘Choose Kind’ quotes.
We made stop motion videos to demonstrate the orbits of the inner planets, as well as the Earth and the Moon. Here’s a great example from Maisy and Joe!
We studied how the phases of the moon are formed, and then used Oreo cookies (yum!) to demonstrate the different phases.
We have been learning to multiply using counters to check our place value knowledge.

We have researched about the different planets in our solar system and written some interesting facts about them. What new facts have the fact files taught you?

We have written our own mnemonics to help us remember the planets. Do any of these help you?
