Today, Hazel Class went to visit St Werburghs City Farm to learn about how to care for animals and why farms keep certain animals. We saw lots of different animals including piglets, sheep, goats, ducks, ducklings and chickens. We even got to feed some of them!
As part of out trip we also learnt about different bird calls and made some fantastic bird feeders to take home. What an action-packed day! A massive thank you to the adult helpers who came on the trip with us, we had such a great time.
Year 2 had a great time at St Werburghs Farm. We met all the different animals and learnt about how to look after them. We also made bird feeders which we can’t wait to take home and test in our gardens.
Early Years – Dads come along on Thursday 26th May 9.00 or 2.00pm to make a giant dinosaur with your child from recycled materials. Mums, Nans, Granddads, Uncles welcome too! Only you can make it a ROARING success!!
Beech class have been really busy soil scientists this week. First we were introduced to different types of soil and discovered how they are formed, including; sand soil, chalk soil, peaty soil and clay soil. Then we learned about permeability (the speed in which different soils allow water to pass through). After that we predicted what we thought might happen to the different soils and finally we did the experiment!
We wanted to share our results with you:
Sand soil – rapid permeability,
Chalk soil – moderate to rapid permeability.
Peaty soil – moderate permeability.
Clay soil – Slow permeability.
Well done Beech class for having a first-class positive attitude to their learning and having fantastic patience and kindness to each other during the experiment. 🙂
