Cober in the Jungle! 17 Nov 2011

This term Cober class have been working on the Jungle. They have found out about the different layers in the rainforest and some of the animals which live there. To support this work, we have created a jungle and grassland collage outside the classroom, which has many words and phrases to help us with our writing.

Before half term, we learned the Greedy Crocodile story which we retold, and shared with parents. Following this we retold the story, using the words around the room and outside to help with spellings. Cober Class are becoming very independent workers!

Our task at the moment is to think of a way to trap Greedy Crocodile and to write instructions to explain. Already we have thought about camouflage and ways to attract the crocodile!

In ICT we are programming a Pixie Robot (disguised as Greedy Crocodile) to travel along the path on our map of the jungle. We are recording the instructions using symbols and numbers to help us.
