  • Habitats and Adaption

    Published 03/09/18, by Admin

    Year 4 have been learning about how animals are adapted to live in their habitats and how the change in environment effects them through survival of the fittest.  They created made up creatures which were adapted to the habitat they were given and took part in a bird beak investigation involving sweets.  Each child had a different type of beak to try and eat their sweets and the children found out that some birds survive and reproduce with certain food sources, and others starve and die.  This is survival of the fittest.

    With taste buds tingling, Year 4 came in on a massive high on Thursday 8 February as cooking day was upon us.  The children cooked an exciting array of Indian food including samosas, vegetable curry, chicken biryani, chapatti, masala chai and rice.  Throughout the day, classes wondered past in hair nets and aprons, which the children enjoyed wearing far more than the staff did!  It was such an exciting day and thank you to anyone who helped towards it.  The children loved it, especially eating all of it in the afternoon.
