  • On Thursday we looked at writing a fact file on seals following our story of Cimru the seal and her pup. On Friday we explored a newspaper article about a time capsule from the North Pole that had been found.

  • The time capsule was found very quickly which means the ice is melting faster than people thought it would. This will affect all marine life. Our seal book shows two animals that will be affected by the changes to the ocean. Today let's learn about the other animal in our book.We are about to get to the exciting part of our book with a whale chase!

  • The following site is all about whales:

    https://www.discoverwildlife.com/animal-facts/marine-animals/facts-about-orcas/

     

    Orcas, (sometimes called killer whales as they hunt seals), are the largest of the dolphins and one of the world's most powerful predators. They are immediately recognizable by their distinctive black and white colouring. Smart and social, orcas make a wide variety of communicative sounds, and each pod has distinctive noises that its members will recognize even at a distance. They usually hunt in pods (groups) of up to 40.
  • Can you watch the video that is on the following site and create a fact file about an Orca whale:
  • https://oceana.org/marine-life/marine-mammals/orca

  •  

     

    Can you write down anything else you have found out from the video?

Lets remember what we have been exploring this term... The week before last we explored our own diets.

 

Well done Hydra. Completing a food dairy is a detailed thing to do but it helps us to identify the things we may be getting a lot of and the things we may be missing out on.

But does it really matter what foods we eat?

This is a big question that people may not always agree on…what are the best foods to eat?

People all over the world eat different diets so the answer lies in what each type of food does for our body. We need to start with vitamins and minerals. These come largely from eating a wide variety of fruit and vegetables.

Look carefully at the pyramid poster and draw a table in your journal based on the poster.

Now let's remind ourselves of some key words:

A purpose, something that does something so that something else can work
