Creating our Autumn Festival Leaf Pictures
We used all of the leaves we had been collecting to make autumn leaf pictures. They had to represent an autumn festival which we labelled as well as saying which month the festival was in. We were very creative!
Our Autumn Deciduous and Coniferous Leaf Hunt...
Armed with our clip boards and leaf detective identification sheets we set off looking at the changes we could see with the leaves on the trees. We identified the names of the trees the leaves were from and whether or not they were deciduous or coniferous. Mrs Davies got so carried away looking with us that she didn't take the best selection of photographs!
How do polar bears keep warm in their cold climate?
We discussed how polar bears and similar animals who live in parts of the world where the weather is like our winter all of the time. We conducted this experiment to prove that a layer of fat or blubber keeps the heat in and the cold out. Look in our science books to see details of our experiment and how we explain our findings.
