What another fabulous week in Whales class!

In Maths, we have been exploring fractions. We've learnt how to add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions.

In Science, we learnt how organisms have adapted to suit their environment. We conducted an experiment to research how natural selection happens. We replicated Charles Darwin’s observations about finches on different islands of the Galápagos Islands. We noticed that the birds whose beaks did not suit the environment or foodstuff were less likely to survive and reproduce. 

In English, we have started our study of discursive arguments. We researched the for and against points for the use of animals in the war and then had a fierce yet respectful debate! The debaters of the future shone. We think we may have a future Prime Minister amongst us!
