In you pack you have a cartoon strip called ‘Calvin and Hobbes’

It has the drawings of an excitable tiger

The Tiger is named Hobbes

The little boy is named Calvin

If you look carefully under the heading of Calvin and Hobbes you will see “by Watterson”

Bill Watterson wrote stories and drew pictures….what two things would we call him?

The stories were pretend not real life.

They were about a boy pretending that his Tiger was fierce, clever and playful.

Really the tiger was a toy and looked like this….

Using your imagination create an excitable character from something you know

Topic:

 

Walt:

  • I can identify what a habitat is
  • I can label creatures and place them in the correct habitat

A habitat is where creatures live.

In George’s Marvellious Mediciene the habitat of the animals is a farm with fields and barns and ponds.

Today we will continue to focus on ponds

 

Can you draw a pond in your book?

 

Can you find a ruler?

You will need this to draw arrows

 

 
   

If you can find one you will need to draw straight lines pushing down on the ruler in the middle and holding it still

 Don’t worry if you can’t find one…. try to draw straight arrows

Draw the pond creatures (pictures below) in the pond

Using arrows and the names of the creatures, label them on your pond picture

 

Here are some pond creatures:

 

   

 

   

Well done. Tomorrow we will look into how these creatures are adapted to live in the pond.

  Nature Watch

 

 

Walt:

I can identify birds

I can explore lifecycles

I can explore what we mean by the term ‘Metamorphosis’

 

Keep bird watching and try to identify what you see.

Yesterday you explored the lifecycle of the frog

 

Today you will explore the lifecycle of the dragonfly

 Both the frog and the dragonfly depend on the pond habitat for their survival

 

If you want to find out more you can research online:

https://www.dragonfly-site.com/dragonfly-life-cycle.html

Write this as your title           The Dragonfly

 

  • Dragonflies fly fast so they can catch and munch lots of  mosquitos in mid air
  • Dragonflies have lots of predators which would like to eat them so the fly fast to escape.
  • Dragonflies change through their lifetime. They spend three years as scary looking creatures called nymphs which lurk at the bottom of ponds eating tadpoles.
  • Female dragonflies lay their eggs near calm waters.
  • Nymphs then emerge from the eggs
  • The nymph climbs out of the water, and sits very still on a reed. Very slowly it changes it’s skin and becomes and adult dragonfly.
  • Some really clever stuff:
  • Dragonflies change as they get older
  • This is called incomplete metamorphosis
  • Metamorphosis is a total change. The adult is different from their young (a caterpillar and a butterfly)

 

 
   

 
  • For a dragonfly it is incomplete or not quite changed
  • They have changed but the nymph looks a bit like an adult dragon fly so it is incomplete

 

 Dragonflies have three stages: egg, nymph, and adult.

 

Draw the stages in your book:

 

Finished!

Well done you have worked really hard J
