Bug Hunting

 

We got up close and personal with some flying, squirming and creeping creatures today! We had to remember to tread carefully and move quietly (despite our excitement) to make sure we didn’t disturb the minibeasts. Using an identification sheet, we made tally marks to show how many of each creature we could find. Gazing into the pond, we noticed pond skaters and water snails. Our next job is to research our creatures further in readiness to write our non-chronological reports!

Empire State Building - modelling!

 

In an epic 20 minute challenge, the children's task was to transform a pile of junk into a model pf the Empire State Building - the final resting place of the giant peach in the story of James and the Giant Peach!

 

 We looked at a photograph of the real thing and found out some key information, including its geographical location:

 

The Empire State Building is a 102-story Art Deco skyscraper in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. It was designed by Shreve, Lamb & Harmon and completed in 1931. The building has a roof height of 1,250 feet and stands a total of 1,454 feet tall, including its antenna.

 

Following a discussion about its shape and design, the children worked in teams to create a classroom sized model (which was still quite big) using the materials available. There were some excellent examples of team work, and an evaluative discussion afterwards revealed that communication, delegation and specific roles within the group had helped to make the task (and outcome) really successful. 

 

Have a look at our projects under construction!
