Inquiry topic - Do all living things need shelter?

Here is our first look at a shelter made by ants. It is massive and really got us thinking about why and how some creatures might build their shelters. In some ways, this structure was not that different compared to human homes with rooms for different uses.

Our wrap up of data collection from Term 2

Last term we surveyed the children at HNP to see who would like, or not, to have a beanie, warm headband or scarf as part of our winter uniform. We entered this data on to a collective sheet and then in groups we tackled the task of adding the votes to see if there were more Yes' than No's. That meant adding 22 numbers! We did this in a variety of ways and then checked our answers with each other.
