What is it like to be a deep sea diver?
This term our Science-based project is called Blue Abyss. We’ll be learning all about the underwater world of incredible coral and mysterious sea creatures. Our big question is What is it like to be a deep sea diver?
We’ll be looking at what real divers get up to below the surface and find out what they can see. We will learn about the seas and oceans of the world (and environmental issues which affect them), living things and their habitats, and how living things adapt to the environment they live in.
What wonderful, creative home learning we have received for this project. Well done, everyone!
The children are clearly so enthused about this project and I can't wait to see what other fabulous learning comes from it.
We've been learning all about food chains in Science. We know about producers, consumers, predators and prey and we worked out our own food chains involving sea creatures.
We looked at the beautiful book 'The Tale of the Whale' which is about plastic pollution and its effects on sea life. In Art, we then looked in detail at the whale's eyes and then discussed shapes, shading and colours before creating our own whale eyes using pencils, crayons and pastels.
Today was the final session of our 12 week whole class samba drumming lesson programme with Mr Egerton from the Lincolnshire Music Service. We have absolutely loved learning how to play the different samba instruments, learning samba rhythms and playing together as a group to make a fantastic sound. It has really developed our listening and playing skills. Today we performed to some of the other classes and we played fantastically for our audience!
This week we have been writing biographies about the amazing Jacques Cousteau. We've loved learning about this incredible man and his life! We watched films and read information about him, wrote notes from this research, looked at features of biographies and worked hard to include these features in our finished biographies. We decided to present them as double-page spreads to make them visually appealing too.
This afternoon we looked at examples of watercolour seascapes and then we used our skills of colour mixing, colour blending and using different weights of brush stroke to create our own.
