Our PE days are Monday's and Thursday's where children can come into school with their PE kits on. This should be a plain white t shirt, black/grey shorts and/or tracksuit bottoms, and suitable footwear.
There is a tuck shop available to children during morning break that sell healthy snacks that children can purchase. The snacks range from fruit, milkshakes, wraps/sandwiches, and change on a daily basis. The recommended amount to bring in for this is 50p. Alternatively children can bring in their own healthy snacks from home.
Their is a water fountain that children can access during the day or they can bring in their own water bottle from home.
Autumn Term 2019
What makes a predator fierce?
During this term we have been looking at different predators, and started looking at crocodiles. tigers and sharks. We looked at their features, described their appearance then wrote our own poems about them.
We looked at predators from different habitats and created food chains, looked at their skeletons and muscles, and compared them to the human skeleton.
The children were particularly excited about learning the different birds of prey and created an information booklet about these. We learnt facts about eagles, osprey, vultures and hawks.
As well as animal predators the children were keen to investigate predatory plants and were amazed at how plants such as the venus fly trap and pitcher plants capture their prey.
As part of our science focus this term we also investigated light and what materials reflect light the best.
In Art we sketched our favourite animal predator, then used our skills of critique and redrafting, and sketched our animal again looking more closely at the details of the animal. We also used clay to make a predator and thought carefully about adding detail.
