What a good week we have had in Kestrels. The weather has been lovely, and it has put us all in great spirits! Let’s hope the weather continues throughout the half-term holidays.
In literacy this week we have been doing an extended writing piece all about seasonality. We have researched when…
Herons had a creepy crawly surprise today with our Minibeast Visitor! We learnt about different types of minibeasts, and most importantly, got to handle some! We met stick insects, cockroaches and giant snails. We even met some other types of animals. My personal favourite was the Amardillo!
We have been so excited to witness our caterpillars change into their cocoon states this week. The children think it's hilarious to watch them wiggle inside their new homes and are keeping a close eye on any changes.
For or against fracking? You decide!
In Hawks, we have been learning about fracking in our local area. We debated to see if our class were for or against fracking.

In Hawks we began our new topic using drawing and shading skills.
What image did you choose? What did you enjoy about this lesson? What challenges did you face?

Another satisfied customer! Our vegetable soup that we made is yummy!
There's plenty for our snack each day this week!
The children have very sensibly used different tools to help prepare the vegetables for our soup.
We have been tasting different vegetables like Oliver in the 'Oliver's Vegetables' story. We talked about how it is the different parts of the plant that we eat. We tried spinach and the children recognised that it is the leaves and stalks that we eat.
At home think about the different…
The Ducklings and Little Chicks have been enjoying preparing our garden beds ready for planting. They have been using different tools to weed and plant. They are learning lots of new plant names whilst helping to do this.
