In gymnastics this term, Toucans have been learning the 8 basic gymnastics shapes and then working in teams to show these on big equipment. They were reciprocal, acting as coaches for each other to improve. The final performance included teams performing 6 of these shapes in silence and their progress over 6 lessons was amazing. Well done Toucans! ;-)
Well done to Richie for achieving his 2x table fluency. Lots of amazing progress this week from everyone too. Keep learning them in order, out of order and division facts!
In Literacy, Toucans have created their own dragons today using an online site (dolldivine.com). We had some technical problems, but Toucans were resilient and reciprocal and their creations are amazing!!
In History, Toucans and Kingfishers went outside to experience 'Stone Age Survival' and decide what they would need to do first. Some found water, others built shelter or fire and others foraged. Comments included: "Stone Age life was harder than I expected" and "You had to work as a team to survive."
Toucans have been making rocks and soils in outdoor science learning. They learned about what is the same and different, at the same time as having lots of fun!
