We are busy being creative at the moment ready to melt your hearts and dazzle your eyes with our artistic talents…but you’ll have to wait and see! No sneak previews yet!
One thing I would like to share is my newest book purchase. If you’re thinking of an alternative to an Easter egg, looking for a beautiful gift or just can’t resist books like me I urge you to look at this one. It was created in response to various words, mostly about the natural world, being removed from the Oxford Junior Dictionary. It ties in perfectly with the joy class 3 are sharing as they spot animals and objects from nature.
Here are a couple of images to tempt you from The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane, with stunning illustrations by Jackie Morris (and no I’m not on commission!)
We had a fantastic day, despite the chilly temperatures, exploring the reserve and investigating in our hands on workshop. Here are just a few pics from the day.
We followed this up with lots of science at school. First we had a challenge from Mrs Twitcher to see if humans could build a nest as good as a bird! You will have seen the results but here is another selection from class 3.
We then used some of the things we had learnt to think about other animal groups. We discovered 6 because we are brilliant! Can you name them all? What group would you put the octopus in?
