Base 7 have been learning about humans and animals in Science this week.
They have been looking at the changing stages of the human lifecycle and animal lifecycle.
They have all drawn pictures representing ages of humans and talked about the differences between them.
They have looked at animals and can distinguish between an adult animal and a baby animal.
This morning they have been writing a list of questions that they have about animals and then later on they will be given a fact sheet to research and will identify if their questions can be answered using these.
We have included some photographs of some of the work they have done for you to look at.
Today in Maths, Base 1 have been looking at the properties of 3D shapes.
They have been working together in groups to describe the properties of a 3D shape and will also learn how to identify parallel and perpendicular faces/edges.
Some 3D shapes, like cubes and pyramids, can be opened or unfolded along their edges to create a flat shape. The net of a 3D shape is what it looks like if it is opened out flat. A net can be folded to make a 3D shape.
The children will be learning more about this later on today.
