This half term we have been learning about the four parts of the U.K. Each week we have researched a different nation and built up an information booklet about them all. Here we are completing our work!
This week four members of Topaz took part in their first cross country meet.
They all competed with great success and did Topaz proud!
Well done to Jayden, Kayden, Tristan and Winston!!
This week we have been looking at the lifecycle of owls. The children have learnt about the diet of owls and we dissected owl pellets to see what their owls may have eaten. Some of our discoveries included tiny animal skulls and bones.
Today the children have become expert scientists. They have been dissecting owl pellets. Their faces expressed all sorts of feelings: curiosity, excitement, disgust and much more.
Their love for science has helped them gain a better understanding of owls.
Take a look at their work!
In science, we are learning about living things and this week in particular, about food chains. Today, year 2 dissected an owl pellet to discover what they could find on the inside, to discover what an owl eats and how this shows it’s food chain. Some budding scientists found lots of different bones and coloured fur, which we identified as parts of a vole, a mouse or a bird. Here are the children in Zircon class, showing us their favourite find.
