Charles Darwin, Dinosaurs and the arrival of a small furry adventurer are just a few of the topics the children have been learning about this week.
Year 1 & 2 looked at the idea that chickens are closely related to Tyrannosaurus Rex and that dinosaurs could have evolved into birds. It was amazing how many similar characteristics chickens and the T-Rex share, especially their scaly legs and the way they run. A T-Rex even stopped by on the farm in the morning and gave Mr Kiddle are scare!
Year 6 have started to look at the work of Charles Darwin and his theories of evolution and natural selection by solving a series of problems relating to his findings on the Galapagos islands and how the islands tortoises and finches adapted to the different island environments.
Have ago at the game below which teaches you about Natural Selection and see if you can survive a million years!
Year 5 have started a Farmers Market project with the theme of seasonal food. Over the next term they will be looking at the importance of eating seasonal produce, the effect of food miles and cooking and tasting a variety of food. They will also be planting, growing and cooking their own seasonal produce in the farm allotment.
And finally this week Years 3 & 4 have become film producers and have starting writing a storyboard for the farm very own furry adventurer, Guinea Pig Jones in his adventure the “Temple of the golden carrot”. They have started with episode 1 in which they had to come up with how Guinea Pig Jones learns about the golden carrot and sets off to find it.
