Year 4 have had a very busy afternoon investigating food chains.
Each of the children were given a card, identifying them as a living thing from a food chain. They had to locate something that they would eat within the room. We then sorted the children into different food chains, and discussed how energy is produced by plants and is transferred along the food chain by consumers. The children identified predators and prey, and we even discussed threats to food chains, including the presence of plastic in the oceans.
The children worked really well and had lots of fantastic discussions. Well done Year 4!
We have had a marvellous messy morning! We have made nature paint brushes, flower bracelets, dinosaur dens, binoculars, danced in mud and climbed a massive mountain! We would love to hear what part of the day your child enjoyed the most.
A special great big thank you to Mrs Hassall and her team of helpers you have done an amazing job so far and we can’t wait for our next adventure to our lovely woodland.
It was fantastic to see all the children so engrossed in all the activities today. The pure delight on their faces and the interaction with each other really made our day.
Wow, what a fantastic time we had exploring and getting messy in the woods. We went on a dinosaur hunt, built dens, squelched in mud, made binoculars and nature bracelets and found lots of minibeasts! We would like to say a big thank you to the John Muir group for clearing the woods and making all this possible.
The nursery children have had a fantastic day and they have all loved the messy activities. This afternoon they have been on a welly paint walk, been tea bag splatting, paint spraying cloths, Berry mashing and much more. The children have loved being able to have the freedom to explore their learning.
What a brilliant time we had out on our playground this morning making gloop, welly painting, spray painting, mushing fruit and painting bread. The children had the biggest smiles on their faces all day and the adults had a great time too!
