Our young wildlife watchers were very busy exploring all small things that creep, crawl, wriggle and fly at the front of school today. Under small stones and dried leaves, in the grass and on the underside of fresh green foliage they discovered woodlice, snails, caterpillars, worms, spiders, tiny flies, slugs and more. They loved using pooters to collect lots of our amazing miniature wildlife and had a great time trying to recreate a home for them all! Magical! Enjoy the photos!
We even found a little bit of time to replant the front of school planters. Thanks to Mrs Broster and Mrs Rowlands for helping us fill jugs with water to make sure our new plants were well quenched today and a special thank you to Mrs Roberts, our secret, much appreciated, school gardener for all she does behind the scenes to keep our flowers blooming!

I was impressed with how well the children used the...

Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...

Mrs Holdsworth: Fri 14 Jun 4:34pm

We've spent a lot more time than normal inside this week in Base 1 thanks to all the wet weather, but this has meant that we've had a chance to explore our new 'construction zone'. We have created a space where buildings and models can be kept on display when they are finished. To earn the right to do this the children must write a sentence or a label about their model and display...
