Our Topics

 

Under the Sea!

A cross-curricular adventure to the depths of the ocean. Many discoveries will be made as we learn about the carefully balanced ecosystems, food chains and fascinating creatures which call the ocean their habitat. We will also learn about how we depend on our oceans for our survival, how they have been put at risk and how we can best conserve our wondrous underwater world!

 

Excellent Egyptians!

In this topic we will delve into the pages of history! We will learn about the customs and beliefs of one of the earliest, but yet most advanced civilisations of our world and marvel at the majestic pyramids, some of the most famous Ancient Wonders of the World! We will walk in the shoes of archeologists by examining artefacts and evidence of that time and decode secret hieroglyphic messages. Join us on our time travelling adventure!

Our Shoebox Underwater Habitats- Coral Reefs and Kelp Forests

P5/6 use their powers of observation and artistic talents to create these beautiful tropical fish. Oil pastels and a colour wash were used to create this watery effect.

Using a key to identify seaweed specimens.

Creative Coral Polyps!

We have been learning about the Great Barrier Reef, so we took a closer look at coral polyps which help to create the reef. We made our own model coral polyps using food items to represent the different parts of a polyp’s body and then put them together to create a colony. It was delicious! 😋 
We got to enjoy the wonderful outdoor environment, right on our doorstep. We worked together to collect a variety of materials and used them to create a group collage, create chalk art, line pictures and our own little individual collages!

Marvellous Music
