Brandon Marsh Trip

 

We had an fantastic trip to Brandon Marsh Nature Centre.  We had lots of fun pond dipping, bird watching, mini beast hunting and finding out about food chains.  We spotted lots of different types of birds, found many mini beasts and caught lots of pond creatures.  We used identification sheets and keys to identify the creatures.  We also learnt about primary and secondary producers and consumers.

Rainforest Hunt

On Monday 11th  we used the Forest School as a starting point for our rainforest topic. We searched high and low, for pictures of animals and fact cards. When we found them all, we gathered together to decide if the animals were rainforest animals, or creatures which would be found in temperate forests. We discussed the fact cards and asked some excellent, thoughtful questions of our own. Rainforests are amazing places and we can’t wait to find out more about them!

Talk For Writing ‘Hook’

 

When we came into our classroom on Tuesday 12th September, something mysterious was waiting for us; an egg! But who did it belong to? Attached to the egg was a message from the owner, it had left us clues around the school to follow. We had to read each riddle carefully and think about the location it described. We followed the clues and found a dragon! The Dragon is now watching over our classrooms. We are reading a dragon non-chronological report as a model for our own report writing.
