Summer Term

Our new project is called ‘Survival!’ This term, we will be learning how animals and plants adapt to their natural habitats and we will be finding out about evolution.

Watch this video clip to find out more.

Who was Charles Darwin? What can you find out about him?


We will also be learning about how humans can survive in different parts of the world and investigating the effects mankind has on the lives of plants and animals.

What do you know about orangutans? Where do they live? How do humans affect their lives?


 We will be reading Kensuke’s Kingdom as our class novel.


These people have fantastic survival skills:

Can you find out about Steve Backshall, Bear Grylls and Ray Mears?

    In class we are learning about fossils, Mrs Robertson kindly brought in some fossils, some replicas and some authentic. I enjoyed trying to draw one of the fossils and looking at authentic ones Mrs Robertsons husband found, they were really interesting. Some of the fossils that were brought into school were billions of years old! Mrs Robertson, our wonderful class teacher, also told us bout the two main fossils that there are: trace fossils, which are tracks, eggshells, footprints and nests, and body fossils, which are preserved remains of plants and animals.

    Recently, we conducted an outdoor investigation for our science learning. Every one of our Kagan groups planned an investigation in advance, my Kagan group conducted an experiment where we measured the length of our participants legs (From ankle to waist) and then had them stand on a line. They would then jump and we would measure how far they jumped. Our experiment was, ‘Can the person with the longest legs jump the farthest?’
