Science: Discovering Darwin's Theory of Adaptation

In the Autumn term, we have been learning all about Charles Darwin; he is known for his theory of evolution by natural selection. According to this theory, all living things are struggling to survive. Therefore, the living things that have the most helpful features for their environment tend to survive. These living things then pass along their helpful traits to their young.

Maths: TTRS- Our most valuable players!

DT Update: We are beginning to Modroc our structures! Its messy but fun!

DT: Constructing a solid form! Will it stand the test?

After completing our product research and consumer survey, we designed our pull-along toys. We know these will have to be strong to stand the test of our consumers (Reception class)!

In our PE lessons this term, we thought about what makes a good leader. Before this lesson, we drew cartoons of a good leader: big ears to show great listening skills; wide eyes for looking out for others; strong heart for caring for others' feeling; quick thinking brain for problem solving or tactics. We put these characteristics to the test during a series of challenging activities! 

Great fun at Junior Citizen!

We had great fun at NPL finding out how to show good citizenship. We met firefights, the police service, sea rescue, the ambulance service, dogs trust and many more.
