Egg drop

This week we have witnessed the miracle of new life as our visiting chicks were born – some in front of our very eyes! Yesterday, we were glued to the incubating chamber as one of our feathered friends pushed his way out into the real world. The first thing he saw?

Don’t worry, we didn’t drop any of the ‘visiting’ eggs but you can read about Year 1/2’s science experiment in this week’s blog.

Y3/4 have taken a step further to a galaxy far, far away, Year 5/6 have been building shelters and Year R have been celebrating the Lunar New Year and reading one of my favourite stories ‘The Tiger Who Came To Tea’.

Salt, Sea Dogs and Green Fingers

This week in our blog read about how our school grounds are being turned into a gardening, growing and nature haven for our children to explore and learn in.

Year 5/6 have been very busy… learning more about biomes in geography, separating in science, dancing with Miss Batchelor – and taking tests! Their minds and bodies will definitely need a rest after all of that! Around the school, Year 1/2 have produced fantastic front covers and whizzy writing for their brilliant stories, Year 3/4 have been learning all about magnets and Year R have been digging for pirate treasure!

It has definitely been winter this week in school! To accompany the frosty mornings we have been working on the Winter’s Child and Snow Bears in Year R and Year 1/2. The themes have been distinctly science based in key stage 2 where the children have been learning all about forces and biomes!
