We certainly do not want to be called energy guzzlers!! So we're going to turn off the lights and the TV when we are not using them. Our new way to save energy is to wear extra clothes in the house so we don't need to turn the heat up so high! We played a game to see which team, the boys or the girls, could layer up the fastest.
This week we have been learning about bridges and examining bridges around the world. We noticed that the strongest bridges are made of steel and have a triangle shape in it's structure. We then made bridges using only 5 sheets of paper and sellotape. We tested their strength by counting how many coins we could place on top before the bridge collapsed!
Today we finished our second Roald Dahl book "The Enormous Crocodile." We loved it despite having mixed opinions about the ending. Some of us thought the ending was hilarious, others felt a bit sorry for the poor croc! What book will we read next? If you have any suggestions leave them in the comments :)
Today we read a fantastic book called "The Day the Crayons Quit" by Oliver Jeffers. During the week we will be writing persuasive letters as the crayons in the story. If you would like to write your own persuasive letter take a look at the story below called "Clcik Click Moo." Pretend to be another farm animal and write a letter to the farmer asking for something and tell him why you should get it!
We had so much fun going to the 2016 Global Action Plan competition presentation. We are so happy we were involved in this project last year. Thank you Ms Cronin for teaching us all about bees. We're going to continue protecting them this year!
Well done girls for presenting the news over the intercom. You would both make fantastic news presenters!
