Why can't an elephant be a pet?


We wrote to the zoo and look what they sent us!

                                            SPRING TERM 

Our Big Question is....

Why does the tortoise go to sleep?

On Monday an egg was delivered to school but who was it from and what was inside?



The egg got bigger and then it hatched.






What a surprise!

Reception took advantage of the lovely weather and went to look for signs of Spring.






The Big Egg Drop

This week is Science week and we have been investigating eggs. we looked at how to protect an egg when it is dropped. We decided to wrap it in cotton wool or knitting wool. We talked about our results.

Good To Be Green Awards



 This morning Reception had a visit from a tortoise who had woken from it's winter sleep.







What happened in our school overnight? When we arrived this morning the school was a mess. We had been visited by aliens who had left things everywhere!







We used the playdough to design our own aliens.



We designed some underpants for them.


We drew some aliens and their spaceships.


We looked for aliens and made up stories about them.
