Our writing focus for the term was Report Writing. We each chose an animal and researched information about its appearance (anatomy), how it moves, what it eats (diet), where it lives (habitat), adaptations, life cycle, behaviour, how it defends itself, enemies and any other interesting facts. Here is Cameron's title page for the Famingo, behaviour and interesting facts.

Our Art Focus was learning to make prints. We made P.V.A. Glue Prints. We drew the animal we researched for our reports. We drew our animal with pencil and went over with PVA glue. We then did a crayon print and a wet and dry print. This is Simonne's giraffe, Lily-Ana's butterfly and Orla's lion.

Big Ideas: Milk is a mixture of substances.
We can change milk into other products. These changes can be pyysical changes, for example making butter or chemical changes, for example, making casein plastic.

I made ice cream with all four classes as part of our science week. Here is Jud with Bryn and James. They are just about to remove the ice cream after shaking it in a bag of ice for 10 minutes. It was delicious. Room 2 made the best ice cream.
