Reception have been very enthusiastic about feeding the birds. We have hung lots of different types of food and feeders to attract birds into our outdoor area. Observing the birds will be a direct connection with nature, and will promote an appreciation of birds/wildlife. The children are naturally fascinated by the birds; as well as just enjoying their company we are hoping to identify different species, notice their colours and patterns, listen to their songs and observe their behaviours. We will be thinking about the needs and demands of living creatures. We will be talking about conservation, migration and changes throughout the seasons.
Year 1 have been continuing their weather work this week. We have been studying Sir Francis Beaufort and combined our Humanities and Science skills by completing our very own ‘Beaufort Scales’.
Congratulations to all Year 1 children for their wonderful work in our Christmas Concert – ‘ A Midwife Crisis’. We had super sheep, angels and stars who performed and sang beautifully. The smiles on their faces showed how much fun they had. We have been extending our T-Rex tasks this week to a Christmas and PSHE theme, making beautiful Christmas Cards for our friends.
Year 2 have had a very exciting week! On Friday we visited Skipton Castle to complete our topic ‘Towers, Turrets and Tunnels’. We had a fabulous guide called Peter who taught us all about the history of the castle. We discovered and found different features of the castle such as arrow slits, battlements and the curtain walls. We learnt how to be archers, pretended to be knights of the realm and even learnt a little bit of magic! We all had an amazing day.
