As part of our science topic we have made our own mini composts. We followed the instructions carefully and added our very own tiger- worms. We had to treat them carefully.
We will observe the worms at work and see what happens to the food that we add to our compost.
What a treat to see such wonderful dancing at Tanners Wood school.
Year Three, Larch class, showed off their street dance moves. Juniper were walking like an Egyptian. Years Four, Maple, rocked to Electric Avenue and Oak class were in a Time Warp!
The judges had a really tough time. They were so impressed with each of the dances.
Well done to all the classes.
We became Egyptians for the day and relocated to the River Nile.
We began with looking at where Egyptian times sat on the timeline.
Throughout the day we met some interesting characters. Workers who would work close to the river. Pharaohs- who were the monarchs of ancient Egyptians and many more.
We played Egyptian style Tug of War. Jazmin was the winner! Hurrah for Jazmin.
We learnt about how the Egyptians named their sons and daughters.
There was a clear hierarchy in Egyptian times. The Pharaoh at the top of the pyramid and the slaves were at the bottom.
We have learnt so much about Egyptian times, but we will ever shake the curse?
I just can’t stop dancing!
Larch class have been busy writing recounts of a well know fable.
We have tried to use inverted commas, fronted adverbial and a variety of punctuation.
We wrote in our very best handwriting.
The children were fascinated to see the vast variety of animals at the museum. We had a great handling session of different skulls. We looked closely at the teeth to give us clues as to which mammal each belonged to. We had some great guesses.
We found animals from different biomes. There were also animals which sadly are now extinct, the great sloth bear and the dodo.
A big thank you to our parent helpers who I think enjoyed it as much as the children.
I know that many of the children would love to return so do pop along and learn even more.
Well done Larch you were a pleasure to take out.
A tiring day for some!

What a great first tournament. Key stage 2 played at least two games representing their teams.
The overall winners are….Watch this space!
What a well organised fun event.
We look forward to the next.
Larch and Juniper class been busy researching Egypt. We have created a fact file. Made 3D pyramids using the net of a square based pyramid. We have located Egypt and the United Kingdom. Looked at religious beliefs and had fun creating Mummies too.
Larch class have been investigating which surface is best for a toy car to travel across.
We predicted, tested and then evaluated our work.
We had lots of fun!
