Hello and welcome back to school! A brand new term! A brand new year! and a brand new topic!
It’s time to take a walk on the wild side. This term we’ll be learning all about who eats who! Find out who’s coming for tea or who is tea? Is it a bug munching lizard or an eagle-eyed bird of prey? Whatever it is, do you think you can handle it? We’ll learn about creepy crocs and amazing alligators, the deadly assassin bug and the voracious Venus flytrap. We’ll be inspired to write an informative leaflet all about our favourite predator and compose a poem about a predator or its prey. Then we’ll use what we know about the best of the beasts to create the ultimate predator; the apex of the food chain. Will you cross your dad with a peregrine falcon or your nan with a great white shark? What incredible species can you imagine? Feeling peckish? Let’s jump aboard the food chain.
We are really excited to be back at school and are even more excited to be teaching this topic. We launched our new topic with a school visit from Simon – the falconer from Twin Lakes. Storm, Myrtle and Rita performed beautifully and we were all able to get up really close to these beautiful birds. Over the next few weeks we will be learning all about food chains, predators and prey in a variety of ways which we are sure will excite and inspire us all.
