It’s been a while since I’ve updated the site, so I’ll get back to it. We’ve been thinking about Mother Nature.

It’s a bit strange really, because Mother Nature isn’t actually a woman, or a person at all! She is all the natural things around us, from waterfalls to trees and animals.

We started by making our own shape poems.
Here are some examples we found.

Year 3 had a go at some robot paintings. We linked 2d shapes for the body. Then we mixed some colours and used a dark grey down one side, and white down the other side to make it look metallic. We added detail with black paint or pen last of all. What do you think?

Egypt, Cairo, Gizeh, Camels in front of Pyramid (1600x1200)
We’ve been thinking about Habitats in Science, and we discovered that many living things are very well suited to their environment. A great example is the camel! They’re weird looking animals, but they’re also incredibly well adapted for the harsh place they live. Click the link below to find out more.
