The Foxes entertained a huge audience this week with their amazing class assembly. They shared facts about dinosaurs, writing, music and art work. Mr Lennon would have been very proud of their recorder performance, it was very special. Thank you to our #incrediblecommunity for all your support and well done to all The Year 2 Foxes.
The Year 1 Butterflies had a fantastic day at Bolsover Castle! We couldn’t have asked for better weather as we explored the castle and its walls. We can’t wait to write all about our trip when we are back to school!
The Foxes had an amazing day at The Tropical Butterfly House visiting the prehistoric dinosaurs. We explored the dino trial, watched a bird show, held some mini-beasts and saw lots of interesting animals. A great day all round!
The Bees have been very busy this week exploring the beautiful Bolsover Castle. They had an amazing day out exploring a real castle whilst searching and identifying all the features we have been learning about in our Topic ‘Knights and Castles’ this term.
First, the Jaguars looked at the positive and negative impacts of tourism on mountains. Then, they learnt about positive and negative economic, social and environmental impacts. Finally, they looked at each other’s and used STEM sentences to discuss whether they agreed or disagreed with the thoughts of other groups.
The Foxes have been exploring key vocabulary linked to their topic – Dinosaurs! They used dictionaries, non-fiction books and online dictionaries. We are excited to use some of our new words in our writing!
Year 6 investigated how different mountains were made. They used books and triangular prisms to learn about how fault-block mountains are made; they used an elevated tray of sand and water to learn about plateau mountain formation; and they used different paper to investigate how fold mountains are formed. As a class we then used icing sugar and a piping bag to see how volcanic mountains are formed. We are physical geographers!
