Trip to Knowsley Safari Park 15th June 2011
Years 1 & 2 travelled by coaches to Knowsley Safari Park.
We drove through the Safari Park and saw lions, rhinos, giraffes, elephants, camels, gazelles and the famous monkeys who were sat on a car trying to rip off the windscreen wiper. We all laughed at that! Then it was time for a spot of lunch. After lunch we had a walk round meeting meerkats, ponies, pigs etc.
Then it was off to watch the sea lion show. The sea lions were very clever and performed lots of tricks for us. After the show we made our way back to the coach when the heavens opened and we all got drenched as we ran to the coaches. Please take a look at the slideshow to see our day!
Red and Green Class were asked to design a model out of junk.
Please take a look at the slideshow to see some of the fabulous creations.
Superb Work Red and Green Class!

Celebrating Chinese New Year
Green Class had a busy week last week. We were short on numbers and the remaining children worked very hard every afternoon to complete "Dave the Dragon!" The dragon was painted and collaged and then displayed on Friday in the hall. We also made Chinese lanterns, Chinese bunting and dragon masks.
Green Class have been concentrating on poetry and explanations texts this half term. The poetry unit is about patterns in poetry and the explanations texts is all about sharks! The children have been split into groups and will research different sharks, then they will conduct a presentation in front of another class.
We have also been looking at doubles and halves in numeracy. We have done this in many practical ways including using money.
Our science topic for this half term is changing materials, we have conducted experiments looking at how things change when they are heated, cooled, stretched, squashed etc.
Obviously with the run up to Christmas we have been practicing the Christmas Production - "Strictly come to the stable" and have been learning the Cha Cha Cha!
We have been working alongside Miss Hawkins this half term, she has been helping us with our work along with Mrs Trayford and Mrs Hicks.
