The children in Leopards went on a virtual train ride (complete with hot chocolate!) to experience what it might be like to travel through ice covered mountains! As a result, the children produced some excellent writing, drawing on their senses.
As part of a unit of work called Living Things and Habitats, the children in Leopards class went on a bug hunt! The children used classification keys to identify different living things before safely returning them to when they were found.
Leopards embraced Japanese culture for National Japan Day by dressing up, experimenting with origami and writing in Japanese!
On Wednesday 22nd February we were privileged to receive a visit from Dr Tom Robson. Tom spoke to both children and staff about taking calculated risks and becoming resilient learners. All classes visited by Tom throughout the day had a very entertaining and informative experience.
In Leopards class the children have just started a new unit of work on sound. As an introduction to this science unit, the children were asked to design and build their own ukuleles before exploring where the sound comes from. Whilst very noisy, it was a tremendous afternoon!
We have been looking at the water cycle in geography recently. Last week the children looked at different ways that meteorologists measure cloud cover before going outside and recording cloud cover using our own special measuring devices.
