Issue 19: 15th May 2024

Celebrating International Nurses Day and International Family Day, this week's issue has tongue twisters and a maths problem to be solved around 'nurses'. Dina was inspired by her science lesson and wrote about the Proboscis Monkey while Jan reported on the elephants' communication with each other.

In Year 4, we’ve been learning about animals and their habitat. I came across this animal and found it fascinating:The Proboscis Monkey. Did you know that a Proboscis monkey has a diet that consists of leaves, seeds, and unripe fruits? Proboscis monkeys are found in Borneo’s mangrove forest. Their name is a Latin word (as common in science!). They are the world's most prolific swimmers.  Prolific means highly productive.
