We are Tiger Class and we work hard and enjoy our learning.

 

Our topic this half term is Let's go on an Adventure - What is it like to visit Guatemala? This is a Geography and DT based topic looking at the physical and human Geography of Guatemala, the tropical Rainforests and the people who live there. 

 

The Ancient Civilisation living in Guatemala were The Mayans and so our topic has included learning the Mayan Creation Story and we are currently designing and making puppets for Puppet Shows which we will share with Giraffe Class later this term.

Trip to Cheddar Caves and Prehistory Museum 

Tiger Class and Giraffe Class went to Cheddar Caves on the 23rd November 2017 for a Stone Age Experience.

The day included a tour around the Caves looking for evidence of what life would have been like for the people who lived there 9,000 years ago. We also met Stone Age Sam and Stone Age Andy and they told us more about life in the Stone Age how they made fire; how they hunted and what they wore.

The children are writing recounts this week and some will be posted on this page in the next week or two.

In the meantime, here are some photos from our visit to Cheddar Gorge and Caves.

History Week for Tiger Class November 2017

Its been a busy week! We've been using the Time travelling Crowns  we made to travel back in time using our skills as historians to find out more about the past. We've visited the Stone Age and found out facts about how Stone Age Man made their own clothes from animal skins, cooked on fires they made with flint and made needles out of bone so they could sew their own clothes! We've been History Detectives around the village and discovered all sorts of facts about where we live. We've also visited the 1930s and learned a few Charleston dance steps in PE!Here are some photos from our Woolavington Village exploration.

Roque (Rocky) is our adopted tiger

Roque (Rocky) is our adopted tiger 1

Roque is an amazing tiger.  He lives at the Born Free tiger sanctuary in a place called Bannerghatta, in southern India.  Roque, born on 17th May 1998, lives in a big forest enclosure and enjoys exploring.  He climbs over boulders, rolls in sandy soil, and keeps cool in his deep pool.  Roque has a very sad story, but today he gets the loving care he needs.

Roque was only a few days old when he was taken from his mother.  He was put on sale in a pet-shop in Barcelona in Spain.  The tiny cub was scared and lonely.  He was kept in a small glass tank and paced up and down, crying for his mum.  Born Free doesn’t think it is a good idea to keep wild animals as pets.  They belong in the wild and it is very difficult to properly care for them. 

Born Free rescued Roque and brought him to his new home in India.  The cute and cuddly cub has grown into a big and impressive adult.  He enjoys patrolling his territory and investigates the forest and the insects, lizards and small mammals that live there.  His favourite place is beneath a large bush high up on a rocky bank beside his pool, where he gets a great view of the countryside

Roque's Adventures

Roque - the cuddly toy version - sits very happily in Tiger Class watching all that is going on. However, he does like adventure. Last year he was lucky enough to go to travel all the way to Vietnam; he met Tigger in Eurodisney; he went on a camping trip and had a ride on a canal barge.

Roque would love to go on more adventures this year so if you think you might be going somewhere at the weekend or during the holidays and would like to take Roque with you let Mrs Lovell or Mr Jackson know.
