At Wildlife Club, our 'Busy Bee' Wildlife Clubbers have continued to develop the wildlife habitat in the pond area with the help of Mrs Greenhough.

This week the children made two bumble bee homes.
You might like to make one too!

Here is the website address, which will give you all the information you need!

Do let us know how you get on!

 

The butterfly feeders, that the children made last week with Mrs Greenhough, will be put out today. Let's hope lots of beautiful butterflies decide to visit!

 

It's an exciting time of year in the natural world...

The children found a fledgling crow today in our school grounds. We talked about how it was ready to fly but it might need a bit of extra time to do so. It had made its way around the edge of the school field from one playtime to the next. We decided that we needed to leave it alone and let its parents find it and look after it and hopefully it would be able to fly away with them.

Arron and Charlie brought in egg shells this week that they have found. We are trying to work out which birds have hatched from them.

What a lot of space-tastic fun we have had this week! I can't quite believe how much we have done. We have been busy making space robots and spaceships — we also made a space caravan would you believe! The children created ramps and raced the space men down it- they looked at lots of different ways to speed them up and to catch them at the end. We thought about what we wanted to be when we...

Base 1 have been learning about owls this week. We have been finding out about different types of owls and where they nest. We read the stories Owl babies and The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark. We are making an owl using natural objects gathered from our outdoor area and Mrs Winward's garden. We have been looking at the life cycle of a barn owl. Mrs Charlesworth brought some owl pellets for...
