Elementary 1 had a very exciting first half of term learning about different habitats such as forest, rainforest, mountains, volcanoes, deserts, lakes and the savannah. The children loved researching and finding out about different animals such as elephants, giraffes, polar bears, owls and many more.
One highlight of the first half of term was learning about the Arctic (tundra) and enjoying our "teddy bear day" with lots of special visitors. Another highlight was our trip to Hampstead Heath.
This half term we will continue studying big habitats such as urban environments, rivers and oceans and small habitats such as gardens, parks and ponds. This week we learnt about the names and location about different oceans and the deepest part of the world oceans which is the Mariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean.
The children learnt about the five layers of the ocean (sunlit zone, twilight zone, midnight zone, abyss and trenches) and many different ocean animals. All of their learning is linked to a lot of creativity such as singing songs, playing games and doing art work using special glass jars.
The children will also finish their special sewing project with Miss Hiroe. They are all stuffing and sewing their own cuddly animal that they will get to take home very soon.
