Animal Experts!

Part of our Home Learning has been to find out about an animal that lives in the ocean or the rainforest and teach our classmates all about it. Today we had our first five animal presentations and everyone did an incredible job!

We worked on the difference between asking questions and giving compliments (which were coming fast and furiously!). Here’s a snapshot of what a few friends thought of today’s presenters…

  • Ciara and Hudson said that Bethan spoke really loudly and clearly and they  liked all the details on her jaguar. They also thought Bethan did a great job of looking at us all as she spoke. Well done Bethan!
  • Abby and Braden thought that Emily was really good at talking loud and clear for us all to hear. They also thought she did a really good job of reading all the information on her super poster! Good job Emily!
  • Emily and Ieuan thought that Josh had a loud , clear voice and Ieuan learned that hunters kill elephants for their tusks which he thought wasn’t right. Super work Josh!
  • Archie and Josh thought Sam did a super job of talking loudly and clearly. They also loved his piranha model and Josh said he thought Sam was a STAR! Great presentation Sam!
  • Bethan and Orla said that Archie talked like he really knew his stuff and that he’d made good choices with his gecko model as the decorations made it look great! Amazing work Archie!

Ask your child what they learned from our presenters today and if they leave a comment, there are THREE House Points up for grabs!

I’m really excited to hear what Braden, Alana, Ciara, Hudson and Orla will be telling us tomorrow!

    The presentations look wonderful 🙂
    Archie said he has learned that we need to stop destroying animal habitats. We also need to stop killing some animals. Archie knows that a piranha can “eat you to bits” and 25 of them could “kill a cow in 5 mins”… yikes!. Jaguars sleep on trees and chameleons change colour!

    Well done to all of them today! Sam said everyone did really well ? he said geckos change colour to protect themselves & we mustn’t cut down any more trees because it will destroy the leopards habitats & hunting grounds. He said he forgot to say piranhas are in danger because of chemical and oil spills which happen a lot in their waters, floating in from the seas ?

      You remembered lots Sam! Sam did an incredible job of teaching us all about piranhas and probably would have talked all afternoon as he had so much to share!

      Orla was really interested in the presentations and had some great questions to ask! Looking forward to seeing what she’s been up to!

    Orla says a piranha will eat you if they smell your blood. You would never put your hand in a piranha river.
    Geckos can never blink.
    People cut off elephant tusks and then they leave the elephant. People take the tusks somewhere and the rainforest people put them on their bodies.
    Some lizards can change colour.
