Presentations

The children are learning how to research information from the internet and creating presentations. To prepare the children before they complete their presentations, we would like them to use the websites to research some facts. They will also have access to these during the lesson.

Caterpillar hunting!

Today we went searching for ‘caterpillars’ in the outdoor area. We pretended we were predators and swooped in our prey! The bright coloured ones were the easiest to find as they were not camouflaged in the foliage. The ones that were dark colours were trickier to find as they blended in with the green grass, bushes and plants. We decided that if we were a caterpillar then we would like to be brown, green or grey as we could then blend in with our surroundings and make it difficult for predators to find us and eat us!

Using a Website to find information

The children have been given the task to research information about castles. In computing, we have been practicing how to cut and paste both pictures or text into a word documents. Ask you child to use the links to find more about castles and bring them to the lesson next week.

The Key Features and Parts of a Castle

 

More target practice!

Today we used our target practice skills and had a go at archery. We all tried really hard and our aim and force improved as the session progressed. Some of us even managed to hit the target! We were very pleased with our progress. We are looking forward to having another go later in the term!

Target practice!

Today Class 5 and Class 6 tried their hand at New Age Curling and New Age Boccia. The activities gave us the chance to think carefully about a range of skills including our aim, the amount of force we were using as well as our team tactics. We all had a great time and we hope to develop our skills further in future PE lessons.
