Class 3 – Caterpillars 2014-15

Caterpillars Weekly Blog 12.6.15

This week we have been thinking about the Norfolk Coast and what we would find there. We have been looking at creatures we would find in a rockpool. Poppy would like to find a crab in a rockpool. Alfie knows there are fishes called a Blenny that live in a rockpool and Oliver knows that a goby is a fish that has a sucker on its belly and helps it stick to rocks.

We read and matched definitions of rockpool creatures to their pictures before writing some of our own.

We made a homemade lava lamp because we were thinking about what happens when oil is mixed with water. Oscar B knew that the oil would sit on the top and not mix. This made us think about what happens to the sea animals, plants and environment when large quantities of oil are spilt into the sea.

In Maths we have been reading a book called ‘One is a snail, ten is a crab.’ This book counted legs on the beach. We made our own flap book and counted in 2s, 5s and 10s drawing creatures to total the correct number of legs.

Today we enjoyed measuring with Finley the fish. He measured his friends using pearls. We used rulers and centimetres to measure a path so Finley could get to his friends.
