What a brilliant Science week we've had!
The week started with our trip to Newquay zoo. We all enjoyed making our way around the zoo and observing and learning about the animals there. Highlights included the lemurs, penguins and of course the capybaras (a current favourite animal in Ash Class!) We also enjoyed an informative talk by one of the zoo keepers during which the children learnt about how animals have adapted to their environments. There was also the opportunity to ask lots of questions.
On Tuesday, the day began with a workshop from Devon County Council about composting. This was really engaging and the children particularly enjoyed searching for minibeasts in some compost which had been brought along. We found all sorts using the magnifying glasses and were able to use identification keys to discover what species they were.
We continue to learn about space in our Science curriculum lessons and this week, discovered what stars are as well as the importance of our sun. We had great fun making our own constellations!
Next week is looking like a busy week. We will be undertaking our termly assessments in reading and Maths, as well as continuing with our topics across all of our subjects. I also look forward to seeing many of you at parents evenings on Wednesday and Thursday.
Have a fab weekend.
