This week in the Wildlife Garden, the Owls and the Blackbirds used the space to show off and practise our Maths knowledge. We used chalk to do the 3 and 6 times tables and tested each other. Then we used the metre rulers to practise measuring objects in the Garden. Have a look at some […]

This was inspired by the drain from which Krindlekrax emerges in our Literacy book, ‘Krindlekrax’ by Philip Ridley. The Heathwall river has been largely forgotten, as it has been covered up for more than 150 years! The […]
This afternoon, the Owls collected material from the Wildlife Garden including leaves and sticks. We discussed why leaves are changing from green and used the lovely colours to make artistic leaf displays. Have a look at some of our efforts! Afterwards, we recycled all the leaves back into the compost heap in the Wildlife Garden!

To finish off, he freestyled a rap including words chosen by the children and included a poem that the children had learned during the session. Check […]
In the Wildlife Garden this afternoon, we considered what signs there were that Autumn is coming. We also gathered sticks and played a game in which your partner closes their eyes and you give them a stick. They feel it, put it back in the pile and then have to guess which one it was! […]

At the same time, we had a cooking table in the corner of the classroom where we […]
Today we talked about tomatoes and went to see the sprawling vines of tomatoes that have grown so well over the summer. The children thought of some really interesting questions such as whether they are fruits or vegetables and whether you can eat green tomatoes.
We even found a rather large courgette!
Over the past few weeks, Mrs Macrory’s bubble have been practising hard to perfect a dance routine! They were unable to do it in front of an audience so please do check it out here!
