The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra performed the music to his adventures on stage. The conductor led the orchestra on a musical extravaganza! “My […]

Hearing Sounds – Left or Right?

In Science we used our sense of hearing to listen to the sounds around us. We went into the playground to listen to and note down the sounds that we could hear and the source (where it came from). We could hear the gates closing, children laughing, cars passing by and aeroplane engines. We then […]

Teddy Bear Picnic

Victorian Experience

‘Last week when we came in, our classroom looked very different. I felt shocked! Where was the carpet? It had gone! We had to pick names at random from a pot. My name was Abigail. We started off with Arithmetic,  seated in rows of 4. Girls on one side and boys on the other – […]

Microhabitats

We explored microhabitats in the school grounds, recording our observations as we navigated our way around. We wanted to understand that most of the living things we observed live in these microhabitats because they are suited to them. These habitats provide for their basic needs. When we finished making our observations, we returned back to […]

We learnt about the habitat of animals that live in the rainforest from the Forest floor all the way up to the Emergent layer. We found out that most plants live up high in the treetops because the umbrella of […]
