Year 2 have really enjoyed reading The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch and learning about the seaside so we decided to make our own habitat boxes. They include real sand and if you look closely you will spot a 3D printed starfish. Children worked excellently as a group and produced fantastic work. Well done Year 2!
As always thank you those children who are reading 4 times a week or more.
Year 6 had a lot of fun this afternoon discovering how strong eggs can be. Do you know the key to their strength?
Year One had a wonderful day at Longton Park, the weather was great and we even had a picnic. There were lots of historical features to see, signs of spring spotting and squirrels to find.
Today in Reception we have learnt about the life cycle of a frog and what a better way to learn about it than to look at a real frog! Thank you to Mrs Moss for bringing in a newt and a frog from her pond, although it did give Miss Hodgson a scare when it jumped out of her hand and started hopping across the classroom!
The children in Year 5 have been busy in the garden this afternoon. They have been repotting plants and separating seedlings so that they will grow well. They’ve planted more seeds in the polytunnel and look forward to eating the produce later in the year.
What a brilliant day we have had to start our ‘Pond Creatures’ week. This morning we went pond dipping and found lots of tadpoles, pond snails, a leech and two waterboatmen! The children were so sensible around the pond and very caring towards the pond creatures. Well done everybody!
To end our Minibeast topic, this morning we have made a tally chart and then a pictogram to see which was the most and least popular minibeasts.
Thank you so much for the fantastic learning challenge photographs we have received this week. It’s wonderful to see our children planting their seeds to help to protect the bees.
We have watched a video about a very scared vampire who thought a vampire was following him around! We worked out that this must be his shadow and that because he is opaque, he has an absence of light behind him. From this, we wanted to investigate if we could make shadows bigger or smaller. Could any Year Three children share what we found out?
For this week’s final task at Science Club, the children made their own volcanoes. Great fun!
