In English this week, we wrote about a process of our choice.

We used sequencing words, researched facts and organised our process writing with headings and subheadings to show the different stages involved.

THE LIFE CYCLE OF A LION by Ahmed

Who is the king of the jungle?

Did you know that lions are so furious?
Did you know that lions are the second biggest cats in the world?
Did you know that lions live in group’s that are called prides?

Here below are the life cycle of lions .

Cub

The first step in the life of a lion, is when they are a cub.

When they are born they don’t open the eyes until 3 to 10 days.
Lions cubs are born with blackish black spots that go away when they’re older.
Lion cubs start walking when they are 15 days old.
Before hunting cubs stay with their mother for two years.

Young Lion

Next, the lion grows into a young lion.

The lion weighs 3.5 pound to 2.2 pound.
Lion cubs stay as cubs for 16 months old.
Lion cubs start eating meat at three months old.

Adult Lion

Finally, the lion becomes an adult. Between 5 and 6 years old they are already fully grown.

Female lions are the only hunters
A lion’s roar can be heard 8 miles away
Male lion weighs 180 kg
Male lions are famous for there loud roar

Fact
Did you know that male lions kill their cubs when they get married to another Lion female?

How does a seed germinate? by Leo

Did you ever wonder how a seed turns into a plant? Here is how it happens. Read on to find out how this happens.

 

Imbibition

The first process of germination is imbibition. The planted seed takes up water rapidly and this causes the seed coat to swell and soften. The seed coat breaks and a small root starts to form.

 

Respiration

The next step is respiration. After the roots and leaves are formed they start to respire and produce proteins so as to make food.

 

Development of seedling

In this stage the cells of the seed become longer and are divided. The roots and leaves break out of the seed and expand to form a new plant.

What is the life cycle of a star? by Nora

                                                       

Have you ever looked up at the dark night  sky and wondered how stars are formed? It’s all just part of the life cycle.

 What is a star? 

A star is an enormous spinning ball of hot and luminous gas. Most stars contain two main gasses- hydrogen and helium. These 

gasses are held together by gravity, and at the core (centre) they are very densely paced. Within the core (centre) amounts of energy are produced,

 

                                                            Life cycle of a star:

Stars follow a life cycle that lasts millions or even billions of years. All stars begin in the same way- as material in nebula, a cloud of gas and dust. MOre massive stars convert hydrogen more quickly causing them to have a short life cycle.

 

                                                          Sun facts:

The sun is already half way through its life. It’s about 5,000 million years, it will expand to become a giant red star and will collapse turning into a dwarf star.
