What a fantastic day for Class 1! Not only have we found honey bees, we have had our first froglet develop and our first caterpillar begin metamorphosis and spin it's chrysalis.
School Allotments: Following in the footsteps of Sidney from our core text, Grow Your Own, Year 1 have planted out their vegetables and are looking forward to seeing what grows best!
As a warm down after PE we played a team game of Cat and Mouse - the children found it hard to locate the mice underneath the parachute and had to use communication to work as a team to catch them.
As well as vegetables and fruits, we've been growing our own mini-beasts in Year 1. The tadpoles and caterpillars are thriving and beginning to go through metamorphosis; the children have loved observing and discussing their changes.
We have been very lucky over the holidays to have a new computing suite installed - the children loved accessing it and using a program to create symmetrical mini-beast paintings.
