The Twits

We took each other's photos and made ourselves look like hairy twits!
Our new topic is about "The Twits" by Roald Dahl.  The Twits are really disgusting because they never wash, they fight and they play tricks on each other!  We are looking forward to finding out what happens to them throughout the book.

We started off by looking at the different parts of a book such as the front and back covers, the spine, the contents page and where you find the publisher.  We found out that the illustrator of the book is called Quentin Blake.

Mrs Twit has a glass eye which she took out and left at the bottom of Mr Twit's glass of beer - isn't she disgusting!  We decided to make her picture with a moveable glass eye.  See what you think of them below.

You just have to pull the tab to see her four different glass eyes!
 To pay her back for her nasty trick Mr Twit decided to leave a frog in Mrs Twit's bed - what a  horrible pair they are!  We looked at the life cycle of a frog and we are going to try the quiz where you drag and drop the names.

We made giant frogs using split pins where all the joints in the legs are.  Primary 3 are going to leave comments about which activity they have enjoyed most so far.

Our long-legged frogs.

Science in Term 4

We have started our new science topic about Plants and Animals.  Mrs O'Brien came in and helped us to make our learning plan.  As you can see we know quite a lot already but we have lots to learn and we are looking forward to finding out more about the lifecycles of frogs and butterflies.
