Work of the week
This week work of the week went to Kerys and Elijah for producing brilliant WANTED posters based
on our new book 'Giant and the Joneses' - keep up the effort!
Well done to you both!
We were visited today by two hens, Honey and Treacle from the British Hen Trust. We learned lots of interesting facts about hens:
Hens can see ultra-violet light but humans cannot see this - Nate
Hens eat tiny stones which are used in their gizzard to help them digest the seeds and tiny bugs they eat - Charlie H
Hens have lots of air in their bones which makes them really light - Grace
Hens cannot fly very well even though their bones are very light - Kerys
Hens only have one hole where their eggs and poo comes out - William
Hens have 120 bones in their body (humans have 206) - Emilia
Some hens lay blue eggs. The colour of their eggs can differ depending on their breed - Robert
Hens have different coloured eyes and can see different colours depending on which colour eyes they have - Ruby
Hens can lay one egg every 24/25hrs - Alicja
Those of us who wanted to, had a stroke of the hens. Their feathers were really soft and felt like a dress made out of silk! We had to be careful which way we stroked their feathers because they might peck us if we did it the wrong way. We loved meeting the hens, they were really funny and very cute!
We have been seriously blown away this week by the enthusiasm some of our fellow classmates have shown for their learning. They have been inspired by what we have been learning in school so much that they have carried on working on it at home.
Daisy has been practicing her 3 and 4 timetables that we are currently learning in class. However she has also challenged herself to learn her 9, 11 and 12 times tables too - great stuff Daisy!
Alicja has written a story about a rhino who lost both her parents because of poachers killing them for their horns. The little rhino makes friends with a young girl and together they try to get the message out to all humans to stop hunting and poaching so that we can prevent the rhino from becoming extinct. Well done Alicja!
Billie has worked hard to produce a fantastic and informative powerpoint about the Pangolin, an animal that is critically endangered. She was encouraged to find out more after watching a program on TV about pangolins. As we have been looking at endangered and extinct animals her presentation supported our learning brilliantly and the rest of the class were really impressed when she shared it with us today!
