Today we were lucky enough to visit a farm….in Russell Scott’s car park! A mobile farm brought their animals for us to hold, stroke and look at. We saw 2 sheep with big horns, 4 rabbits, a guinea pig with very floppy hair and 2 alpacas! We asked lots of questions about the animals and even took some animal selfies! The children were all very well behaved and we had a fabulous time.
We had an enjoyable and interesting workshop with Andrew from Animals In-Tuition yesterday. He brought lots of his special pets for us to meet and learn about. We met a snake, a rabbit, a lizard, a tree frog, a pair of sandfish, a hedgehog and a guinea pig!
Thank you to Andrew for visiting us and teaching us so much! We enjoyed sharing our animal knowledge with you, too!
Our spooky week has involved lots of measuring. We have been learning how to measure length, height and capacity. On Monday we were using rulers and cubes to measure some very freaky things that appeared in our classroom, and today we have been using measuring jugs to measure out different quantities of Witch’s Potion….now, who could have made that?!
On Monday we had fun investigating waterproof materials. We learn that tinfoil or plastic would be best to keep a bear dry in its cave.
Today we made bear caves using plasticine, covered them in the waterproof material and put them outside on the playground. Fingers crossed for rain so we can test them out!
