We worked in pairs to make lists of things we thought we knew about pumas and questions we'd like to find out about our class animal. We played some memory quiz games and watched some video clips to learn more information about pumas. Did you know they are in the Guinness Book of World Records for the animal which has the highest number of different names!
Exploring the life of elephants we did a bit of acting and brainstorming to think about what life was like for an elephant and wrote some sentences to describe it. We have also enjoyed looking at rhinos and a sorting activity to think about which rhino facts were about its appearance, its habitat or its diet. Pouncing like jaguars we alsoi played some quiz games to learn some interesting facts about these spotty mammals.
After a great couple of weeks settling in, we are now all very much looking forward to the long weekend!
