Yorkshire Wildlife Park Trip
On Monday 15th October, to finish our project on a high note, we travelled to Doncaster to see a variety of animals that we have researched for the past 7 weeks.
We put our learning to the test by asking the staff on site specific questions that included the vocabulary we had learned, such as 'How many carnassial teeth do Tiger's have?'
Writing Speeches - 12/10/18
We analysed speeches from Winston Churchill in order to find the key features of a speech. Following this, the children wrote their own speeches to try and convince their peers that the super predator they created during the WOW event was the most dangerous.
In today's project lesson, we were looking at the horrible creatures that live inside and outside our bodies, endoparasite and ectoparasite respectively.
These included: tapeworms, flatworms, head lice, gnats and more.
Dilemma Stories - 03/10/18

At some point on their trip around the park, they encounter an animal in trouble, and they have to choose between two difficult options in order to save the animal!
