Spirit of Adventure

In Autumn 1, year 5/6 were inspired by the work of significant naturalists such as David Attenborough.  This led to us learning about plant and animal adaptions.  Jungle Jonathan introduced us to some of his amazing animals, allowing us to experience holding a snake.  In Science, we learnt about our animal and plant adaptions, inheritance and the theory of evolution.  In English,  we wrote texts to persuade and to inform.  In DT we designed and created our own felt animals.  We developed our pencil skills to create animal illustrations in Art.  Having listened to Saint-Saens’ Carnival of the Animals in Music we composed our own melodies inspired by animals.
