Tropical butterfly house Sheffield

We had a great day out at the butterfly house today. We saw lots of minibeasts and animals, we even saw dinosaurs!! We held stick insects and some butterflies and saw a great bird show. The children and adults had a great time and here are some photographs to show just that!

The Royal Tea Party

Today we wrote invitations to invite year 2 to our tea party. We then followed instructions to make sandwiches. This afternoon we enjoyed a tea party outside and spent time creating royal pictures using chalks in the playground. We had lots of fun celebrating!

Shadows!!!

We made the most of the sunny weather this week learning all about how shadows are made and what happens to them throughout the day. Initially the children drew around their partners shadow at 10am, we then went back out at midday and they drew around their partners shadow again they were very confused to begin with when their shadow moved! After explaining the reasons why our shadows moved the children were very impressed. They had lots of fun experiment with different shapes to make their shadows look different and were able to explain at the end of the day what had happened to the shadows.

Fact finding on the Moon!

Today in topic we turned the lights off and searched the room with torches to find out some amazing facts about the Moon. The children felt like they were in space and really enjoyed learning new information about the Moon. The children worked in pairs to help each other read the facts before writing them down on their fact sheet.

Abbey house museum

Today we visited abbey house museum to attend a workshop about toys. We have been learning about differences in old and new toys and we got to play with lots of different old fashioned toys today. Here are some photographs of the children:
