This morning Chloe's Nana came in and showed us her three bearded dragons; we all had a go at looking at them. We had the dragons for half an hour until they had to go to Chloe's sister Emily's class.
Some interesting facts

Why we are so interested in lizards
Recently we have been reading the book 'Holes'. There is a lizard in the book called the yellow spotted lizard; it is really dangerous. If it bites you, you will die a slow and painful death.
This week we have been doing an experiment to see if yeast helps bread rise. A group has been making big piles of dough, they used seven grams of yeast. The next group are going to make the same thing but with double the amount of yeast, 14grams. Mr Jefferies helped us with the measuring and the amount of yeast we put in.
When we were doing the science experiment we knew we had to keep everything the same, apart from the amount of yeast, and that's how you do a fair test.
On Tuesday we went to Ponty pool (not Pontypool) swimming. We have been practicing many different ways to swim; underwater, backstroke, breaststroke, boards, treading water and front crawl. We have been mostly concentrating on front crawl. Take a look at this video so you may improve your front crawl too.
Top Tips For Front Crawl
1.Kick your legs as fast as you can.
2.Reach out and scoop the water towards you.
3.Face down in the water.
4.After two strokes tilt your head to the side and breathe.
Follow these steps and you will be great at the front crawl!
