Class Highlights

Children in Owlet Class have been learning about habitats. They have researched what the habitat of their chosen animal is like and used the research to plan how to make an animal home. The children have then completed their model habitat choosing their own resources. They have been encouraged to review and evaluate their models and think about what they would change next time. 

Children in Owl Class have been acting out ‘There’s an Ouch in my Pouch’ and ‘Wombat Goes Walkabout’.  We have also been discovering the weird and wonderful wildlife of Australia. 

On Tuesday children in Panda Class visited Tolhurst Farm as part of British Science Week. We explored the working farm and planted our own Rainbow Chard seeds as part of an experiment we are conducting. Whilst turning the soil in preparation for planting, lots of worms were found! We have also brought pots back to school to watch and monitor the growth of the chard in the classroom. 

Children in Rhino Class have launched their learning project on animals and their life cycles by cracking open and examining eggs.  They have been looking at the lifecycles of amphibians and birds.
