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.


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.


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.  🙂



Internet Safety for Year 5 and 6

It has been a long day for our digital leaders – well done for introducing e-safety to the school. From some of the discussions we have had today the children would like to share this link to the cbbc website where there are resources, short films and games that help to discuss important online safety issues and provide solutions and safety tips to help you manage your online life.
