Our snails have arrived!
Five African Land Snails arrived today. We set up the tank for them to live in.
Some of us could look at them all day!
We had a fun session with Hoopstarz!
We enjoyed our 'Celebration of Reading' day. Can you guess our characters?
Rob from Zoolab came to visit school. Thank you to the PTA for funding the visit. We loved it!!
We saw Shelley, an African Land Snail.
We met some 'hissing' cockroaches.
We met a tarantula! Children were only allowed to look in case she got scared.
We met a giant millipede.
We looked at a scorpion. It was grumpy and kept snapping his claws. Rob shone a UV light on it and it changed colour.
Rob then showed us a snake and a frog. These are not minibeasts because they do have bones.
Making gingerbread at home...
Race for Life 2016
The Flying Scotsman came past school. We went on to the field to watch. There was a lot of steam and we could see many passengers.
Overnight the giant visited our classroom. He left us some magic beans and a letter. (He is still using his phonics to write!)
Glyn came in to teach us some Judo moves.
We have read 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' and have made bears and mud porridge!
Mrs Glover has visited school every week over the past few months to teach us different aspects of music. This week we learned about rhythm.
Our focus is traditional tales. We have started with 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'.
Brain Tumour Awareness Day - Wear a Hat. We made and wore our Easter bonnets.
We enjoyed an Easter Egg Hunt and making Easter nests.
Our Visit to Hall Hill Farm
The Bus Journey
We saw some sheep. They were all girl sheep with baby sheep inside them. The lambs will be born any day now. Girl sheep are called ewes and boy sheep are called rams.
There is a 'Lambing Live' event at Hall Hill Farm on Thursday 24th March. It sounds quite exciting!
We looked at the goats. The baby goats (kids) were very playful. The mummy goats are called nanny goats. We fed them with special food and had to keep our hands flat. They were very greedy. Boy goats are called billy goats.
Every time we held animals we had to wash our hands with soap and water or use 'magic gel'.
We held chicks that were six days old. They had hatched from eggs. Girls are called hens and boys are cockerels. We saw hens and a cockerel around the farm.
We ate lunch in the cafe as the barns were still too cold.
We held lots of rabbits and guinea pigs. They were different sizes, colours and textures. A boy rabbit is a buck, a girl is a doe and a baby is a kitten. A boy guinea pig is a boar, a girl is a sow and a baby is a pup.
We milked a pretend cow. We didn't see any real cattle on our visit but we did talk about them. A boy is a bull, a girl is a heifer before she has a baby and a cow after she gives birth. A baby is a calf.
We had a tractor ride. Pumpkin the llama chased us down the track.
We had time to visit the play barn too...
We fed milk to lambs. They were very strong, we had to hold the bottle with both hands.
We also saw pigs, a peacock named Percy, peahens, a turkey named Henry, ponies, alpacas, donkeys, Beckham the wallaby and llamas.
We had a great day. Thanks to the parents that helped at the farm and to those who offered to help.
At school, Mum Belle, Auntie Twinkle and Baby Star Guinea Pigs came to visit...
