This half term our topic is ...
If you go down to the woods today....
We have read different versions of Jack and the Beanstalk and grown our own beanstalks. We have learnt about what plants need for healthy growth and are doing lots of planting in the outdoor area.
Yorkshire Wildlife Park
We had a fantastic time at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park on 18th April. The sun was shining and all the animals came out to see us.
Our favourite animals were the lazy lions and the huge polar bears. We also enjoyed watching the lemurs at feeding time and the wallabies having a walkabout.
When we got back to school we received a letter from the rangers at the Wildlife park, telling us that Barry, one of the Lemurs had escaped! We realised that someone must of left the gate open!
We made wanted posters of Barry just in case anyone spotted something with a long black and white stripy tale around school.
There were sightings of Barry around school and eventually we found him outside climbing a tree. Then we had to try and think of ways to capture him and get him back to the Wildlife Park safely.
Fairy Tracking at Crow Nest Park
We went on a local walk to Crow Nest Park this week on the hunt for signs of fairies. All week we have been receiving letters from the fairies and went to see if we could spot some in the Secret Garden.
We noticed fairy dust and lots of plants that the fairies could be hiding in. We noticed tiny things buzzing around and thought these might have been fairies.
We enjoyed finding treasures that a fairy might use such as feathers, flowers, twigs and leaves.
We then found a letter from the fairies saying that they had been watching us but were lonely. They asked us to make some mini versions of ourselves to put in the Secret Garden so we made peg people and hid them in special spots.
We also had lots of fun playing parachute games and using our physical skills in the playground.
Next week we are planning a party to finish off our topic. We are hoping to have a special visit from someone.
Watch this space.....!
