Welcome back to term 2! We welcome Loena and Lily-Jade to Room 7.
Sophie went to Australia to see her nana in the holidays and she brought us back some little koalas . When we talked about koalas we realised that we actually didn't know much about hem so we did a mini inquiry around Koalas.
We answered a question: "Why do koalas not live on the ground!"
We had to use what we had learned to answer this question. We also learned how to make a picture response using collage. Mrs Finucane thinks we are very clever!
Koalas can’t live on the ground because their claws will get stuck in the dirt and predators can eat them. By Jack

Koalas can’t live on the ground because there might be something poison that they will eat that can kill the baby koala. They can eat dirt sometimes. They can go on the ground for a little bit, to get to a different tree when all the leaves are gone. The baby will drink the bad milk. They sleep funny, on their tummy in a tree. By Sophie
Koalas sleep high in the trees and they sleep for 20 hours and that’s nearly then whole day. By Sahara-Lee
Koalas don’t live on the ground because they might get their claws stuck in the squishy dirt and the roots because they have very sharp claws. So that is why koalas live in the trees. But there is one more thing why koalas don’t live on the ground, because they might get eaten by a dog or other predators. If a koala is on the ground and its food is up in the tree, then they have to climb up the tree, or they starve. By Xavier
Predators might eat koalas and their trees might fall down. By Weston
A predator could come and it would eat the koalas. It would die and a ranger would save the baby koala. Koalas lives in trees and they get the food up in the trees. By Blake
