Before half term Team JF began to plan and create a science based DT project based on our topic 'Life by the Seaside'. We decided that we were going to make a coastal shoe box habitat. First, we chose which habitat we were going to create, most of us chose a beach or a rockpool. Then, we drew a labelled plan of what our habitat was going to look like and what materials we were going to use. A week later after many of us brought in a cardboard box, it was time to create our coastal shoe box. The first thing we did was paint our boxes and added details like clouds, made of cotton wool and waves with white paint. Then once dry, we added sand, seaweed made from pipe cleaners, animals, rocks and other materials. This week we evaluated our habitats and reflected on what went well and what we could change if we were to do it again.
Team JF have been introduced to our new literacy topic which is Poetry and animal riddles. Last week we began to become familiar with poetry as many of us had never seen or heard of it before. We read some poems out of a poem book and lots of us found them to be quite funny. Then we discussed that they will be writing their very own poem about an animal from the seaside. We have been working on our use of adjectives and commas before we start to write about our animal.
