Topic - Katie Morag - Creating Our Own Islands
Today in class the children were given a challenge following our recent learning about islands and their features. The challenge was for the children to create their own islands. They had to include a mixture of physical and human features and work as a team.
The finished pieces were fantastic! The teams worked extremely well together and the islands looked amazing!
Here are some photos of our session and the islands they created.
Topic - Visit From the Zoo Lab
Today we had a very exciting visit from the Zoo Lab. This visit was linked to our new Topic of 'Animals Including Humans'. The visitor taught us about the needs of different types of animals, what they need in order to survive and some information about some specific animals.
Even more excitingly the children were able to hold or stroke some of the different animals brought in! This included an African Land Snail, a Madagascan Hissing Cockroach, a Tarantula named Horace, a giant African Millipede, a corn snake named Lucius and finally a Bearded Dragon.
The children absolutely loved meeting the animals and enjoyed the visit. Have a look at some pictures from our session.

We had such a brilliant afternoon!
