Latest discoveries by our JK paleontologists

The children in J.K have been completely immersed in learning about dinosaurs. They are captivated by the mystery of these giant creatures. We even had a couple of experts from Year 3 come and do a presentation for us!

Take a peek at our photos to see the following: our excavation area with a paleontologist hard at work, independent research groups reading about dinosaurs and artists busily documenting findings. During role play, the children adore creating a dinosaur museum with their bodies and playing with the small world dinosaurs to act out the day to day life of a dinosaur.

Year 4’s fabulous ‘Ancient Rome’ home projects

Amongst much work done last term, the class had the opportunity to prepare independent projects at home on any chosen aspect of Ancient Roman life.

The results were fabulous, everything from home cooked food, PowerPoint presentations, costumes, quizzes and even Lego models were brought in!

The children all rose to the challenge wonderfully in their own unique ways and we enjoyed sharing and learning from each other’s work.

Roll Up for the Great Year 2 Bird Competition!

Year Two recently enjoyed the book My Dad’s a Birdman by David Almond. Before we reached the finale of the Great Human Bird Competition, we had a go at designing our very own birdmen and birdladies to take part in a flight of our own.We spent time thinking about what would make our design fly the furthest. Would it be large wings that would make the difference? Or should we be concentrating on making our model aerodynamic?! No, forget all that – the design should be light! Wait…that can’t be right…maybe it should be weighted at the front!

Everyone had their own theories and everyone thought their design was going to be the winning one!

Take a look at our fun designs and watch the slow-motion video to see if you can tell who won the competition!

Celebrating Iguana Week

View a snapshot of our week’s learning about our endemic TCI Rock Iguana. Enjoy photos of our toddlers to Year 6 as you listen to the vibes of Correy Forbes and the Rakooneers. A special thank you to ‘Rocky the Iguana’ and Dr. Higgs from The National Trust and Amy Avenant from DECR for visiting us.

The ‘Make an Iguana Loose Parts Challenge’ has begun!

“Can you you build an iguana out of our loose parts resources?”

A group of Year 2s took on the challenge set this lunch time, and wow, what an amazing model they made!  Designing their ideas on paper first, and then building together, the group showed great teamwork and creativity!

Will others take up the challenge as our ‘Iguana Week’ continues…?

In JK and SK, the children took the opportunity to create iguanas from Duplo, playdough and paper.  Take a look at the photos of a few of their ingenious iguanas… in fact I’m pretty sure there are lots of photos around the school of other creations being made this week, that just haven’t made it to me yet.  Look out for further posts and take a look in your child’s classroom tomorrow to see what you can find!

‘Rocky the Rock Iguana’ visits Provo Primary

It’s not every day that an iguana visits your school, but today it really did happen!  ‘Rocky the Rock Iguana’ came to Provo Primary, together with Dr. Higgs from the National Trust, to tell us all about the recently launched ‘Saving the Iguana Islands’ project.

We learnt that rats and cats can be a threat to the iguana populations, and that the project is working hard to keep them away from areas where the iguanas are living.   We also learnt about how we should behave around iguanas, when we see them, by being quiet and not feeding or chasing them.

It was lots of fun to meet ‘Rocky the Rock Iguana’ – he rocks! Having our class photos taken with him was really special.

We felt very lucky that ‘Rocky’ and Dr. Higgs came to visit us during our special Iguana Week.  Thank you!  We will do our best to remember all the important information they shared with us and share this with everyone we know.

It’s ‘IGUANA WEEK’ here at Provo Primary!

Our ‘Iguana Week’ kicked off to a great start this morning with an informative visit from Amy Avenant from the DECR.  Speaking to all our children from Junior Kindergarten to Year 6, she explained why our iguanas are so special to our islands and why we need to protect them.  Thank you, Amy.

Did you know that rock iguanas found here are endemic to the Turks and Caicos Islands, which means that they are found nowhere else in the world. How special is that!  If you would like to learn more facts about our iguanas, then come and ask any of our children. You can also find out more at this website and, even better, plan a visit to Little Water Cay and see them first hand!

Throughout this week we’ll be learning even more about our iguanas and comparing them to others around the world. We certain should be experts by the end of the week!
