Battery Hunt 

We have been collecting batteries to recycle! Our families and friends have really helped us out. We have practised counting in 10's and our weighing skills to see how many we had. 

Overall Apples and Pears class collected 1657 batteries which weighed a huge 35.61kg! 

Well done!

Dinosaurs stuck in the ice! What can we do?

We came in one morning to find all the dinosaurs had been stuck in ice! We came up with different ways of getting the dinosaurs out including smashing them, pouring hot water on and covering it in salt. We made predictions to see which would melt the fastest and then observed closely all day to see what would happen. 

School Trip: Paradise Wildlife Park 

We went to Paradise Wildlife Park to kick off our topic about Dinosaurs, it was great fun! We saw lots of moving dinosaurs and read facts about them. We then had a workshop explaining all about how dinosaurs lived. After lunch we explored all the animals and saw lions, camels and even a huge snake! The end of our day was spent in the adventure playground. What a fun trip.

World book day

What a fantastic world book day we had! We dressed up as either our favourite book character or a character from the house we are in. We then took part in a range of different activities across the school. Some of our favourite activities were making a tin man, creating a hook like Captain Hook and making a huge Cheshire cat smile. We enjoyed listening to different stories throughout the day and it has inspired us to read even more than we already do.


Our topic has been “Under the Sea”. In science we have been learning about different types of animals. This week, Miss Barker bought in a fish for us to have a look at. We learnt about the different parts of a fish, both on the outside and the inside! 

Alien Attack! 

What an exciting couple of weeks we have had! Mr Napoleon saw an alien spaceship and sent the video to Miss Barker. We had to write questions and interview Mr Napolean to find out what he saw. We then created newspapers which we took home and gave to our adults so they knew what was going on. We also created news reports. We worked in pairs and filmed them using the green screen.  

Pirate day

We loved pirate day! We dressed up as pirates and spent the day taking part in pirate activities. We went on a treasure hunt, learnt a pirate song and even made pirate snacks!

The best part of the day was when we invited all the mummies and daddies in to watch our dance that we have been making up in PE. They really enjoyed our pirate performance.
