Thank you to everyone for helping the children plan out and obtain the materials needed for their stunning shoebox habitats! The children have been very excited throughout the process of completing them. They have brought in a wide range made from all kinds of materials. We have sharks, whales, bears, snakes, penguins, camels birds, dolphins and a wide range of others on display in and around our classrooms. The children are developing their understanding of producers, consumers, predators, prey, food chains, food webs and adaptation. They are now able to explain how their animals are specially adapted to their habitats in detail. It has been wonderful to see such enthusiam for learning so close to the end of the term. We really appreciate all the support parents have given at home. The children are proud of what they have accomplished and is it clear the project has helped secure their knowledge and understanding about animals and their habitats.
Although we would have liked to include a picture of every habitat in today's newsletter, we simply wouldn't have space, but we do have a small selection for your perusal! Please feel free to come to visit the Year 3 area during the final week to explore in more detail.
Please note reports have gone home to parents today (Friday, June 14th). Please read and send in any comments you may have. Should you have any queries please contact your child's teacher.
