Sea Lions Y3/4
Sea Lions Mythical Stop-Motion Animations
Over the past term Sea Lions class have been looking at mythical creatures, designing their own and working hard to create stop-motion animations. They have created plasticine models, backgrounds, various props and created pieces of music to make their animations amazing. Thank you to everyone who came to our film premiere, I hope you enjoyed it as much as both the children and I did. Below are the animations the children made:
Friends or Enemies?
Heroes in Disguise
Junk Vs. Wild
Good or Bad?
Our Kenning poetry
To start our topic 'The world beneath the waves', we have been exploring different kinds of animals that either live or spend time in our oceans. As a part of this, we researched the ways in which certain animals move, looking closely at verbs, adverbs and adjectives, which we then used to write our own Kennings.
Read through our work below and see if you can solve the riddles for what creatures the children are talking about.
Shabbat: Challah Bread
As part of our look at the Jewish tradition of Shabbat, we baked Challah bread, a traditional bread eaten during meals. Below are pictures showing the children's finished Challah bread, I'm sure you will agree they look absolutely delicious!
Using both their school and home learning, the children designed and created vehicles to run using an alternative energy source. Below are a collection of photographs showing the children's finished alternative energy vehicles:
Sea Lions and Turtles Shared Reading
Take a look at the gallery to see pictures from our first session of shared reading with Turtles class!
As part our look into the devastating effects of plastic, we have been researching how to recycle. Through our research we discovered many things that surprisingly couldn't be recycled. This inspired us to create posters to inform people on different materials that can and cannot be recycled.
Here are a selection of our posters:
As a class we have been thinking about the harmful effects that plastic has on the environment. As part of this, with your help at home, we have collected a variety of packaging products made out of plastic, which we then used to create our class sculpture. The children came up with the brilliant idea of creating a sea lion which I'm sure you will agree looks very effective at showing the effects of plastic!
