Bugs and living in a space ship

Some photos are sideways, my apologies it is a new format editor and I can’t work out how to change it. Thanks for understanding.


This week the bug man came into school with all sorts of amazing creatures. Some of us were really keen to hold them and other not so much. But we were all brave and challenged ourselves.

LE: I had 2 snakes around my neck and I had a frog on my hand. I had a tarantula on my head. We also had spiky stick insects on us.

JG: It was a tree frog and it had grippy feet a bit like sand paper.

BC: I held the bearded dragon. I was quite nice until the mad got it off and it shed its skin on me.

CD: I liked them all. I don’t really like spiders but I had it on my leg and I felt like I wanted to scream.

Living in space

This week we have researching and learning about how astronauts live in space. We tried some space foods and watched some videos from the international space station about how they eat, sleep, exercise and to to the toilet in space.

JB: We learnt that astronauts need to eat dried food. This stops it going green.

BC: I liked the dried apple and I like the chocolate ice cream.

CD: I liked the ice cream more as it was nice.

JB: The strawberries smelled just like sour sweets.


In maths we have been naming and sorting 2D and 3D shapes. We went on some shape hunts and the sorted the shapes by the shape of their faces.

What a lovely mess!

We have been enjoying playing with foods and water and getting stuck in to all the lovely mess. It was a bit strange playing with spaghetti and beans but we all got stuck in in the end.

Calm and relaxed

We thought about calmness, what it feels like and what helps us feel calm in school. We all found things that we can use when we need some calm down time.

Planning our garden

We began planning our gardening area. We went on a walk around the school feeling and smelling plants that we might like to use.
