Darwin's Delights - Birch Tree Class

Driver subject: Science

We’re off on an exciting expedition with Charles Darwin and his crew on HMS Beagle. Can you trace his route across the vast ocean? Stop at the magical Galápagos Islands to see the amazing species that helped Charles Darwin to develop his theory of evolution by natural selection. Do you know what’s so special about a lava lizard, or why the blue-footed booby has blue feet? See how animals adapt to their environments over time and meet some of the world’s greatest explorers and naturalists. Imagine how humans will evolve in millions of years. It’s a scary thought. Ready to trace the origin of species? Let’s set sail.

Dinosaur Planet – Willow/Oak/Silver Birch Class

Driver subject: History

Watch out everyone – the dinosaurs are on the prowl. They’re rampaging across the dusty earth, swishing their enormous tails and baring their fearsome teeth. Let’s explore the Dinosaur Planet. Imagine you’re a palaeontologist (that’s a scientist who studies bones and fossils). Dig deep and discover dazzling dinosaur facts. Create a dinosaur museum and invite visitors to see your awesome dinosaur artefacts. You could even do a dinosaur dance or produce some prehistoric percussion. Which is your favourite dinosaur? The Tyrannosaurus, the Brachiosaurus or the Micropachycephalosaurus?

Doyouthinkhesawus? Yes, he did. Run!

Topic Work – Term 3 –  February 2021

 

This term has been very exciting in school. We have learnt all about our capital city – London.

We have looked at famous landmarks, at the different types of transport available and even had a visit from the Queen!

Please see below for just some examples of the amazing work our pupils have been up to this term:

The bus dropped the Queen off at the right stop, and she inspected our school sign.

The Queen was very excited to be coming for tea at The Llewellyn School.

The Queen even inspected our Llewellyn School Bus and Bus Stop.

Birch Class used the school iPad to help research the landmarks of London.

Finding out the history of buildings and using our mathematical skills to work out how old they were.

We also considered our sources, where we were looking for information and was it reliable?

We thought about how we ensure that we use the internet in a safe way.
