We had an exciting day starting our 'Splendid Skies' topic. We packed our bags, boarded an airplane and jetted off on our holidays! We even managed to make rainbow biscuit snacks!

Fruit kebabs and woodland crowns - a creative end to our 'Enchanted Woodland' topic.

We launched our new topic Claws, Paws and Whiskers with a visit to Bristol Zoo. We saw lots of different animals and met Cleo the Egyptian tortoise. Did you know that these tortoises can live for up to 100 years?

We also met Billy the rat, who lives with another rat called Bob.

We all had a fun and informative day!

Dexter the Bengal Tiger cat came to visit Class 2. He has stripes and leopard spots and he is only 5 months old.

Dexter was very friendly and he let everyone stroke him.

We also had a visit from Bumble and Mrs Byrne. We thought of lots of questions to ask. We found out that Bumble is 6 years old, that he came from the Blue Cross Rescue Centre and that he likes to play in the field with his horse friends.

Curriculum Map Autumn 2015

This term we were very lucky to have 2 grandparents who visited us with the toys they played with when they were young. We loved holding and looking at the different toys which were 60 years old. We found some that were similar to ones we play with today like snakes and ladders. We also looked at the materials they were made out of and discovered many of their toys were made out of wood and metal instead of plastic.
