News of the Week (W/C 27.9.21)

History: Mayan Gods

This week we have been learning about the Maya Gods. We have created some wonderful double-page spreads to show what we have learnt. Our art work and fact knowledge were particularly impressive.

Science: Animal Adaptation

In science sessions we have loved learning all about animals and how they have adapted in order to thrive in their habitats. We have made information pages to explain some adaptations that have taken place.


We have added to our reading display this week. Some children have designed imaginary reading worlds and painted them onto the display. Here are Ellen and Faith with their amazing creations.

Science: Evolution

We have had such fun exploring evolution. We carried out an experiment, using different shaped 'beaks.' These were in the form of tweezers, pegs and chopsticks. We used our beaks to pick up different berries and found that some beaks made it far easier than others.
