This week we have been consolidating our knowledge as it is our penultimate exploring polar animals. At the start of the week we used our knowledge of polar animals to create our own version of Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See? We remembered animals such as polar bear, snowy owl and lemming. We introduced new animals such as a beluga whale, husky and a caribou.
In maths we have been looking different representations of the number 3. We played a sorting game using these different representations with the numbers 1, 2 and 3. In phonics we have been using our listening ears to distinguish what sounds we can hear in a sequential story.
At the end of the week we put our lab coats and goggles on to test how a polar bear keeps warm. We learnt about how a polar bears blubber, or fat, helps to keep them insulated in the cold climate. With one hand we tested to see how cold the water was, then with the other hand in the blubber glove (lard in between two sandwich bags) we tested to see if our hand would stay warm…and it did!
