Fantastic behaviour!

On Thursday 20th April, Year 1 went to visit the Sealife centre.

We had a brilliant time looking at all of the creatures from under the sea. We loved the stingrays and the turtles!

The children behaved beautifully on this visit. Well done children!

Nursery make vegetable soup

This half term we have been learning all about growing, and thinking about where some of our food comes from.  We have been looking at what some fruit and vegetables need to grow and which grow above or underground.

Today we made our own vegetable soup using carrots, onions and celery. The children did a fantastic job of peeling and chopping the vegetables ready for the teachers to cook.  Once softened, we put them in a blender to to make the soup smooth instead of lumpy.

Tomorrow we are going to taste the soup for our snack, we cant wait!

Nursery use the playground equipment

The nursery children have been growing in confidence and love to use the playground equipment.  They show high levels of persistence, concentration and focus whilst climbing and balancing.

Learning about Animals

This morning Class 11 had a very exciting session. For our class reward we were joined in class by some very friendly and fury animals! All the pupils in class were very lucky to learn about each wild animal, interact with them and hold them.

Here are a few of our favourite pictures from the morning.

A fat-tailed gecko.

 

Betty the tarantula.

Jack the Amazonian parrot.

Squishy the iguana.

Some sleepy fat-tailed gerbils.

Our favourite, Oscar!

We would all like to once more say a HUGE thank you to Ella’s parents and Wild World Animal Education Centre.

Many thanks,

Mrs Hickling

 

 

The Sea Life Centre

This week Class 4 had a fantastic trip to the Sea Life Centre. We saw sharks, stingrays and an octopus, as well as lots of other sea creatures. We also visited a 4D cinema and got sprayed with water!  Everybody had a brilliant time and we are looking forward to learning more about all the different animals in our topic lessons.

We had to wear special glasses for the 4D cinema.

 

We went in a tunnel and were surrounded by clownfish.

The penguin came really close to us!
