Invertebrates

We have been completing independent research about invertebrates as part of our classification topic. Here is some of what we have found out.

 

Scorpions, alongside spiders, belong to the group of invertebrates called arachnids. Scorpions eat a variety of insectsspiders, other scorpions and lizards. They also eat small mammals, such as mice. Scorpions must have water to drink, but they can survive for months without food. Scorpions use their pincers to capture and crushing their prey.

  • Snails can have lungs or gills depending on the species and their habitat. …
  • Snail-like animals that do not have a shell are usually called slugs.

Unlike the giant squid, whose arms and tentacles have only suckers lined with small teeth, the colossal squid’s limbs are also equipped with sharp hooks

The colossal squid’s have had lots of battles with whales but I do think they have been recorded but a few times.

Building eletrical circuits

We have started to explore how electricity travels in close loops called circuits.The circuit must have a complete connected path before the electrons can move and electricity can pass through the circuit.IMG_20170516_144352.jpg

The Water Cycle

The class created puddles and measured them to prove evaporation and we explored this data in Maths. We then created a factual article on the Water Cycle using flap book designs to engage the reader.

Writing a persuasive presentation on saving the Arctic

The children researched the unique species that inhabit the Arctic, the threats that are facing this region and the actions we can take to save this pristine wilderness from exploitation.

The children created presentations on the iPads to persuade others in a campaign that is aimed at changing behaviours and to encourage everyone to be part of the change.

Jungle Escape by Arthur

 

There once lived two ordinary boys called Arthur and Angus. They were on their way to Spain in an aeroplane having a nice time when a huge storm, suddenly, lashed out from the middle of nowhere. Rain and hail came rushing down the windows, thunder and lightning setting the sky ablaze. “Hello this is your captain speaking. Due to this storm there will be a delay to Spain!” bellowed the captain over the loud speaker.

The plane was now flying over a large island near France. With watch towers around the edges they saw a mysterious temple. SUDDENLY, lightning hit one of the plane propellers.

They came hurtling down towards the island. Arthur and Angus jumped out of the plane just before the plane hit the water. BOOM! The plane began to sink. They both swam to safety.

Arthur clambered onto the island drenched and covered in sand “that was a close one wasn’t it Ang-,” but when he turned round he couldn’t see Angus. But instead a boy thrashing wildly and if you looked close you could just see SHARK FINN’S!

Outrage! by Joshua

A neighbor’s dog bites me

running with drool

He bites me and chews me like wool

I was outraged,

like a fire was lit

Then Abilene’s mum

comes in and calls me ‘it’

I was shocked when

she did

As she took a cookie

of the tin lid

I was put back on the chair

Which chair? The chair over there

Then a maid storms in like a big old mummy

but not only that, she calls me ‘bunny’

I felt insulted when she

called me bunny

Then I saw a hoover as big as a tummy …
