We have been fine tuning our digital skills to create eye catching front covers for our individual research wonder topics. Having looked at a variety of tools, such as crop, rotate and layering, we think you will agree our covers look great. Our reports are almost finished and we have been utilising some of the Read & Write tools for Google Docs.
Hazlehead Academy Library
We were lucky enough to be invited along to Hazlehead Academy to offer our opinions on the shortlist of Science books. It was a great opportunity to discuss what we enjoy about books and how different styles appeal to different people.
The Northern Lights Of Old Aberdeen…
We enjoyed a bit of a sing song this week as we visited the spectacular Northern Lights. A good opportunity to practise our cursive handwriting, create some poetry and develop our reading comprehension skills.
Another busy week plotting our travels on a world map, recapping the continents, oceans, countries and directions. Then we were mesmerised by the immense wonder of Victoria Falls, the largest waterfall in the World. We feel some art inspiration… looking at colour, composition, blending and brushstroke techniques to create lovely landscape paintings.
Great Barrier Reef
We have already learnt about the internal structure of the Earth, the rock cycle, geodes and so this week we looked at the 18 different types of landforms. Go on…ask us a question! We also turned our attention to the beauty that is The Great Barrier Reef. Apparently it can been seen from space?
Here are some of our black line drawings of coral-
Natural Wonders of the World
So we are off on a tour around the World to study the natural wonders we are so lucky to have. Throughout this term we will aim to research a different wonder per week whilst becoming experts in our own chosen natural wonder. First stop, and what an iconic image it is, The Grand Canyon.
