I did a lot of revision, since tests are coming up. By revision I mean completing tasks on MathsBuddy.
For writing I had to write a few explanations. I (and the rest of my class) wrote one explanation on frogs, and started one on sleep. Below is the explanation of frogs.
(nearly) All about frogs
OR The lifecycle of a frog
A frog is a tailless amphibian with a short squat body, moist smooth skin, and very long hind legs for leaping. They are green and sometimes brown, and live in swamps and/or ponds to lay their eggs. Some frogs may be be poisonous enough to kill, while others are as murderous as small stones. So for this reason DO NOT attempt to touch a frog you don’t know about.
(Above: A poisonous dart frog, or Dendrobatidae)
After a while of being out of its embryo, the tadpole would get some external gills to breathe underwater with. Its tail would also get longer and longer, while it would develop hindlegs. After this stage it would look a little bit more like a frog, just without front legs.
About four or five days after that stage, the tadpole would start to live of food from its tail, slowly making it disappear. A couple days later the tadpole would have very small front legs. Then the front legs would grow, the tail would become shorter and shorter… and behold! A young frog would appear!
Now, the tadpole had become a frog. It would go on with its life, eating flies, jumping about, maybe even accidently eat a tadpole. But then two frogs would find each other, mate, and start the whole lifecycle all over again! Then the frogs will die. Yes, sadly all life must come to an end.
As you learned in the explanation above, a frog’s life cycle is a quite interesting one. You also learned about what a frog was, where they live, and how they lived. Now go outside and see if you can find one!
We actually started a new class novel last week, called 'The Boy in Striped Pyjamas'. It is turning out to be quite a good book, and I hope that there is a good ending.
Also this week, I have completed a Main Star. It was to make a Christmas treat, then give some to your classmates, friends and/or teacher. I made some Lego gummies. The blog post for this is under this reflection post.
