We had a great day at Cotswold Wildlife park. We enjoyed looking at all the animals and especially finding out about some of the animals who come from Africa which is our topic for next term.
The year 1’s and 2’s enjoyed a science day on Monday. They took part in 4 different activities: 1.Making balloon powered cars. 2.Making gliders and aeroplanes. 3.Learning about how our sense of smell works and guessing the identity of 16 different foods and liquids by just using our noses. 4.An I Spy Scavenger hunt around the school grounds looking for different animals and plants.
The ducklings have all grown so much and we couldn’t resist having a cuddle before they go back to the farm.
We have been thinking about what happens to rubbish if it is buried in a landfill site. We have put different materials in a pot and covered them with earth and we are going to see what has happened after a few weeks.
We have been using the I pads to research information about ducks and ducklings. We are going to use the information to make our own facts files.
Rabbits and Squirrels have been learning about how medicines can be used to keep us healthy and make us feel better when we’re poorly.
As part of this term’s topic the Rabbits class have been looking at recycling. They enjoyed designing and making their own sculptures using recycled materials.
This week we have had some duck eggs in school They arrived in an incubator and we are delighted that they have all now hatched. They love hiding under their heater to keep warm.
We all enjoyed wearing red for Red Nose Day.
We all enjoyed dressing up in red and wearing our red noses.
