Maps of the farm

We looked at a map of the farm and drew the route we took around the farm with our partners. We enjoyed talking about all the places we visited. After that we made our own maps of Greenacres for people that will be visiting in the future. 

Lego club...

Well done to one of our Lego club children who worked really hard today to finish his car model. Some parts were tricky but he persevered and worked quickly to make sure he finished.

Fun at the farm!

Today we went to Greenacres farm to visit lots of animals. We fed some animals, went on a tractor ride and even had chance to play on the park! We loved it when the goats chased the tractor...the tractor won.

Ecadet challenge

As part of the ecadet challenge we have been looking at search engines and the information we can get from them. The children then used the child friendly search engine 'kiddle' to find information about something they liked. 

One of the children searched 'guava' as we have been reading Handa's suprise. He learned that your could use guava for lots of things and even make guava cake! How interesting.

Special visitors

As we have been looking at the life cycles of frogs one of our teachers bought some tadpoles in from her pond at home. The children enjoyed watching the tadpoles and observing how they move. We also decided it would be great if some tadpoles could live in our pond at school so to link with our topic of plants, we are going to research the perfect plants to go in our pond so the tadpoles will be happy and healthy.
