Yesterday, year six went to the cricket field with year one and two. When they arrived, the children split into their families. The year six children in each family then showed the younger children what they should be doing for each activities.

Watch out! There are animals about …

On Thursday, Year 1 and Year 2 had some interesting visitors…

As part of our topic lessons Year 1 have been learning about classifying animals into groups and Year 2 have been learning about living things and their habitats.

A company called Zoolab kindly brought different creatures into school for the children to interact with. Some children (and teachers) were even brave enough to have a hold!

Can you spot:

Talula the tarantula, Rochelle the cockroach, Max the millipede, Bobby the frog, Flapjack the lizard, Eddie the baby tortoise, Sid the snail, Prince and Jonny the snakes, Mylo the hedgehog?

Can you sort the animals into vertebrates and invertebrates?
