Paws, Claws and Whiskers

Soft fur, sharp claws and twitching whiskers....what's your favourite animal? One that meows? One that barks? Or maybe one that scurries or slithers?


From pets at home to animals in the zoo, let's find out what animals like to eat and where they like to sleep.


After all that work, curl up and take a nap... a cat nap!

Tiger Hunting


This week we have been finding out different things about tigers and writing our notes up into full sentences ready to write a non-fiction text. Today we were finding out how tigers hunt and what they eat. The children did some fantastic writing all about this part of tigers. We watched the below video about how tigers hunt up until 1.26. After which the tiger pounces on the deer and drags it away. Obviously I did not show this part of the video to the children but I did tell them it would be on the class page if Mummy and Daddy gave them permission to watch it.

We watched the video up until 1min 26seconds in class. After which the tiger drags the deer away into the bushes. There is no blood or gore in the video.

Build Your Wild Self!

Something strange happened this afternoon to Pine Class - the children turned into wild beasts! We practised using the left mouse button to click different tabs to create our wild pictures. Can you work out what animals the children have used in their pictures?

We love Tuesday afternoon in Pine Class as it's our turn to go to the computer room! This week we practised using the mouse and our drag and drop skills by creating a woodland environment for different animals. It's really hard to use a mouse when you're as little as we are but we persevered and created some beautiful woodland settings. At the end of the lesson we learnt how to shut the computer down. We can't wait to see what Miss Taylor has in store for us next week in computing!

The Pine Cones have been exploring different ways to represent a number. We used bead strings, cubes, counters, numicon and compare bears to show different numbers.
