We having started the year studying about our class name PIMLICO which is situated on the Victoria Line. The station is located in South West London and around famous Landmarks like Houses of Parliament and The Tate Britain. A famous bridge: The Vauxhall Bridge separates Vauxhall and Pimlico.
The class have produced Poems in the style of a poem called Jicketty Can which is all about a train. Using this poem they have produced their own. They also have found information about Pimlico.
This week we have been linking Destination Reader with Black History Month. We have learnt a lot about how powerful women, who rebelled against the world, made the biggest change in the world that we live in today. Here are some slides that reflect our learning.
Our reading corner links to our Topic the Stone Age and we have re-created a scene of the Stone Age era.
Do you think life in the Stone Age was exciting and why?
Do you know how they hunted for food?
Why do you think the mammoth was adapted to its environment?
In Science we have been discussing Evolution. We have been looking hard at the term inheritance and variation.
Here are some pieces of work that reflect that learning.
We have also been doing work around how animals are adapted to their environment. The class have worked well in their research.
This week we have been studying more about Evolution and the Theory of Charles Darwin. We have linked our Science topic into Destination Reader using DK Find Out! as well as, studying deeply about Natural Selection and how birds have different beaks for different feeding.
Here are some examples of the work they have learnt about evolution in their Destination Reader books.
The children also imagined themselves to be Charles Darwin and wrote diary extracts about their amazing discovery in the Galapagos Islands about finches and how Natural Selection takes place. Below are two examples of the Diary extracts.
