In science sharks have been learning about evolution and the importance of the fossil record. So far we have observed fossils and tried to infer information from them. We compared the similarities and differences between our ancestors and use lots of scientific vocabulary and it was excellent to see so much JONK curiosity in the classroom.
We have also learnt about how evolution creates divergent species. Sharks are very excited to have a go at making their own ‘fossils’ next week.
We have also been really proud of some of our year 5s this week – before Christmas lots of us were struggling to consistently use column method for addition and subtraction but since we have been back they have been been resilient and reflective and we have cracked it!
