Art

Today we are exploring different ways of making art projects. These are our backgrounds and we shall be adding Polar Bears and Penguins to our art. 


Wow

We recieved a letter today from Sir David Attenborough. We are so excited to be explorers. 



Science camouflage.

Today we have been looking at how animals camouflage themselves. In science we have been looking at camouflagued polar bears with their skin and fat that keep them warm. In art we looked at how different animals camouflage in different ways and trying to create our own versions on Henri Rousseaus "Tiger in the Storm" 

We are also learning to measure and cut accurately. A Polar Bear has 11.4cm of fat (we rounded to 11cm to make it a bit easier!) black skin and then 5cm-15 cm of thick fur and guard hairs. 

What a great afternoon! 




Maths

We are learning to understand and represent both digits in a two digit number through lots of practical activities......
