Philosophy Circle on hunting polar bears

posted 20 Jan 2020, 08:01 by Kathryn Davis

The children looked at images of polar bear hunting and newspaper articles and came up with the following philosophical questions:


Chosen question: Why is the company so cruel by making money from people wanting to kill polar bears?

Children’s comments:

·         The businesses are just doing it for money.

·         It’s a really bad idea of companies to kill polar bears. Why would you want to kill a polar bear when they are nearly extinct?

·         If you kill one, what are you going to do with it?

·         It’s wasting their money. They could just buy an artificial rug/coat.

·         They could buy a rug with pictures of polar bears printed on it.

·         Polar bears should be able to live a happy life. They shouldn’t be shot at when they’re having fun. It’s a cruel, awful, nasty thing to do. It’s like getting a pet and someone killing it. That’s how sad it would be for the family.

·         I’m not sure it’s as bad as we think. Polar bears aren’t as intelligent as us – they don’t have the same feelings.

·         I think if you go on a trip and see a polar bear but you don’t kill it, then that’s ok.

Captain Scott's Diary

posted 3 Dec 2019, 00:13 by Richard Hanks   [ updated 4 Dec 2019, 00:00 ]

As part of our Pole to Pole topic, we have been learning the brave yet tragic story of Captain Scott's expedition to the South pole. As well as appreciating how determined the expedition team we have also enjoyed reading Scott's original diary entries. This has inspired us to imagine we were on the trip and had written our own emotive diaries. The results have been remarkable and tell the story of the key events very well. We enjoyed sharing our writing with children from the other class.

We have also been experimenting with different positions to improve our writing. Have a look at different locations children found to see if it felt more comfortable to write.

Mini scientists in action

This week we welcomed two scientists from Sheffield University to our classrooms. They came to teach us all about microbes and quickly got us busy doing an experiment. We investigated how yeast grows in different temperatures from a freezing ice bucket to a warm classroom. Look out for the exploding yeast! This is just the first of three visits by them...we can't wait for the next.
