We had a wonderful outdoor learning session last week with Alfresco Learning. The awful weather didn't stop us! The children enjoyed taking part in a variety of activities linked to The Great Fire of London. It was wonderful to see the children so engaged and working collaboratively.
Monday 27th January was National Geographical Day. KS1 had a fantastic time looking at an aerial map of the school and its grounds. Chestnut Class spent time outside identifying the physical and human features on the map and then we had a go at drawing our own map. The next day we had even more fun creating our very own messy map of the school and its grounds.
Look at our amazing photographs!
Wow! What an amazing time we have had today. Lydia, from Zoolab, brought in lots of amazing animals to show us. We are getting really good at grouping animals now. We know whether an animal is a mammal, fish, bird, reptile, amphibian or insect and today we learnt about two different animal groups - molluscs and arachnids.
Mrs Sharples and Miss Burkey took lots of amazing photographs. See if you can spot these animals ...
Garry, the Giant African Snail
Pickles, the Pacman Frog
Dorito, the Mexican Red Knee Tarantula
Coco, the Bearded Lizard
Dobby, Lydia's pet rat
Can you name the animal group they belong to?
Chestnut Class enjoyed their visit from children's author Diane Hull. She read her book and introduced us to the main character Baby Bird who isn't happy because he can't do some of the things that the other animals can do. His mother reminds him of all the amazing things he can do and tells him to 'be happy to be you.'
