The Early Years children enjoyed their first experience of our Outdoor Learning Week, making giant bubbles, investigating shadows, creating Andy Goldsworthy style art with natural materials and even finding out how their bodies worked!
Years 3 & 4 have been learning about how to keep their teeth healthy. Year 4 made excellent models of different types of teeth.
In Year 3 they ate apples to explore the functions of different teeth . . .

They investigated what foods are most damaging to our teeth and how to clean them most efficiently. Using disclosing tablets they were able to see which teeth they were brushing the best and which needed a little bit more attention. Then there was some serious brushing!
Even Early Years have been practising brushing their teeth. Look at all those dazzling smiles!
Early Years found out that all the butterflies from Tropical World had been stolen! They had to complete 3 challenges to get them back in time for their visit the next day – a butterfly hunt round school, writing secret messages and making butterfly pictures. You’ll be pleased to know they met the challenges and the butterflies have been returned – phew!
Early Years went on an archaeological dig! They found ‘dinosaur bones’ as well as ‘dinosaur teeth’. They are busy cataloguing them for their museum!
The Early Years children enjoyed everything outdoors. They used their maths skills on a scavenger hunt . . . wrote stories about where they might go if they went through the fairy doors we made . .…
