HAPPY NEW YEAR
Topic: This week in topic we have been learning all about adaptation. We have previously learnt about the theory of evolution and Darwin’s discovery of the Galapagos finches. To continue with this, we carried out our own investigation to find out which equipment ( cocktail sticks, spoons and lolly sticks) are the most effective to pick up chocolate buttons. The equipment represented the shape of the finches beaks and gave us an increased understanding of why creatures must adapt to survive.
Art: In topic we had the chance to combine some more science with art. Sticking with the theme of adaptation, we have been learning about animals camouflaging in order to survive. We painted a bird in our chosen colour, then we were asked to camouflage the bird. This was done by dipping a marble in paint then rolling it around our picture.
Our attendance was an excellent 100% meaning we received another attendance voucher. This was also the best attendance in the whole school and therefore we were awarded the trophy.
