Moving and growing

We have been learning about different types of skeletons in school.

Can you remember the 3 main functions of your skeleton?
What different kinds of skeletons do different animals have?

An activity in which children aged 8-9 can watch how different animals move and then try to label parts of their skeletons.

The Rainbow Serpent

Can you remember any of the wow words that were in the written version of this story that we read in class?

How is the animation different from the written story?

I have also added a video with some Australian scenery too. Can you write some sentences to describe this place?
There is another video with some information about the Aborigines.

Sequences by Zara and Karolina

Today in math’s we have been learning about number sequences we had to spot the rule and then complete the number sequences. One group today had a sheet and they had to complete the number sequence and write the secret code E.G NN =LN +4 and NN means next number and LN means last number. The other group were looking at harder patterns with shapes and they had to find the next term in the sequence and write the rule. Some of us were looking at negative numbers and decimals. Before we started Miss Martindale showed us some number sequences and we had to write the code. We also learnt about ascending and descending. Ascending means the sequence goes up and descending means it goes down.
