A visit from a real life explorer!
Al Sylvester visited us today. He told us about his Antarctic expedition... all the gruesome details! He is such an inspiring man who has faced such adversity.
Before he left, he set us a challenge - to write to him and explain why we would be perfect for an expedition to Mount Everest.
In Geography, we thought about Antarctica. We already knew so many amazing facts... and now we know a little more!
We had a great time completing our timed challenge to learn a little more about the continent!
Science: Sorting Animals and Plants
In Science, we have begun a unit on 'All Living Things'. We began by thinking about MRS NERG... criteria that living things live by.
We then sorted animals using a branching database in preparation for classification next week!
