In spite of the weather we had a lovely Eco club session today! We trimmed bulbs, so they will dry out more quickly, made plant pots from old newspapers and planted beans and peas. We even used some charcoal from one of our own campfires to draw wonderful pictures. Eloho named the charcoal “Nature’s crayons!”0 Comments
Yet another lovely Eco Club session today! We made the most of our beautiful school grounds: being creative with environmental art, adding compost to help our potatoes grow, blowing bubbles, and even planting a horse chestnut tree which has been grown in school from a conker! We wonder how big it will grow…0 Comments
In Eco Club today we celebrated the healthy and eco-friendly ways we can travel on wheels, and had lots of fun! We alos talked about how we need to keep ourselves safe around roads.
Year 1 have had an amazing day today at Formby National Trust Red Squirrel Park. We had a lovely long walk along the beach and through the woods, looking for different animals and their habitats. We saw lots of creatures on our nature walk, and we even saw a rare red squirrel eating its lunch! We stopped for a quick lunch break and then decided to make some fantastic environmental art structures and and see how many different kinds of leaves we could identify on our trail! It was such a fun day and we learned so much about different woodland creatures and their habitats. Well done, Year 1!5 Comments
Year 2 made a worm farm during our Science lesson this week, we found earthworms in the garden and carefully placed them in their new home. We can’t wait to see what they get up to. Please take a look at our great photos from the lesson.
Spring is here, and Eco Club are working hard as usual to make our beautiful school grounds even more lovely! Today we were planting daffodils and muscari. The children now have such good practical skills and teamwork that the job was done in the blink of an eye!0 Comments
Foundation have had great fun making suncatchers for St Patrick’s Day. Have a look at our pictures!
Our current RE topic, leading up to Easter, is “Growing”. We planted beans in a plastic bottle so that we could see them grow and change and have been amazed to see the roots develop beneath the soil. Now the shoots are shooting up! We will measure them and plant them outdoors before the Easter holidays and wonder how big they will have grown by the time we come back!
Looking at the roots in the soil, which we would not usually see below the ground, has helped us to think about our exciting whole school book “The street beneath my feet”. We are going to write poems about the amazing things that may be found underground!0 Comments
We have been having a lovely time in our winter wonderland today!
We discovered that our magical ice art has finally frozen, and loved looking at it and through it! We have also made a small but perfecty formed snowman named “Frosty”, who has a pencil for a nose. We have enjoyed hot chocolate, made ice houses for polar bears and dug for worms. We have also talked and talked about everything that we see and feel happening, and our descriptive language and language about feelings is coming on in giant snowy steps.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!0 Comments
Eco Club will be introducing our school’s involvement in the national BIG BATTERY HUNT in assembly on Monday. Watch this space!!!!!0 Comments
