Photography

Today in art we used our class iPads to begin taking photographs for our work on the ancient Mayans. We took photographs of the school gardens and then used our imaginations to link our photos with Mayan temples and the jungle. We also learned important camera skills.

Writing a Mayan Story?

Today in literacy we continued our stories on an adventure in a Mayan Temple. Making sure that we had apostrophes for possession, subordinate clauses, extended noun phrases, capital letters and full stops.

Exploring local habitat

Today it was a brilliant weather to explore our school habitat. We looked around woodland area and turn each stone and log to find mini beast that we grouped into invertebrates and exoskeletons as well as no skeletons at all. We were very respectful of their homes. We took photographs and analysed in which groups they are going to be classified.

Planting

This afternoon we were tasked with planting tomatoes, aubergines and courgettes. We had great fun doing this whilst learning the importance of soil quality, water and light for our crop to yield the tastiest food.

Have you grown tomato’s before?

To use the outline in drawing

Today in art we have been building on our geography knowledge of the rainforest to create drawings of leaves. We were each given a picture of a leaf and some tracing paper over the top of it. We then used this to help us draw the outline of the leaf.

Do you enjoy drawing?
