It has been so lovely to see all the staff, children, parents and carers returning to school after the holidays and sharing their stories with each other. Each new year brings with it new expectations, hopes and fears and you can feel a real buzz around the school as we all get up and running with the rhythms of school life again.

We will be looking at forces this half term and using theme parks as an example of forces at work. The links below are a good place to start investigating the forces at work and having fun designing rides.

The power of insects – For Narwhal and Swordfish class

This is a link to the bbc iplayer programme about the role that insects play in our ecosystems. It has some fascinating information in it.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/i/b01rd374/

This is a link to the rather more gruesome insect dissection programme which examines the insides of various insects by taking them apart and studying them. Not for the faint hearted and remember – these are scientists who have many years of study behind them.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/i/p00zst23/

Choose to watch one or both of the episodes then let me know what you think, the first programme is 30 minutes long – the second is 60 minutes long.  🙂

We have been reading the poem Jaberwocky by Lewis Carroll.

Here are some still pictures of the backgrounds and characters from the poem that we have used to tell the story. Please reply and tell Merlin all about what we have been doing and why you think the goblins will be entertained by the films.

What’s happening in the grotto?

It’s been an exciting start to the week and the creativity is beginning to show in the grotto in the workbase!

Each class have been leaving exciting things in the grotto for the Goblin King.

What have you made for the Goblin King?

 

Fingers crossed if we continue to work like this I’m sure we will get the next part of the spell!
