All Things Wild
Last Friday, Key Stage One enjoyed a day of beautiful spring sunshine at All Things Wild. This was our very 1st school trip. Linked to our recent Geography and Science topics, the children enjoyed discovering animals and how they are adapted to their environments. Our first activity was an animal encounter where we had the opportunity to hold an armadillo and a gecko. We also enjoyed a walk around the dinosaur trail and a play on the old army vehicles there. A flat tyre ensured we could all have an extra play session on the adventure equipment!
Based on our recent trip to All Things Wild, the children have been busy writing letters to Mrs Corbett, telling her all about their special day. We have tried to coordinate our letters using a range of sentence starters such as: then, next, after that and finally. The children have been trying so hard to remember their finger spaces, capital letters and full stops as well as some interesting describing words!
We have been practising counting in 2s and 5s this week and have enjoyed a range of practical activities and songs to help us with this.
On Friday, we started a new unit of work on length and height. Children were introduced to key terminology such as longer, shorter and taller. We discussed that height is a type of length. We went outside to find objects in the natural environment that we could compare. Children answered questions such as: Which is the smallest/biggest? Which is taller/shorter/longer?
Wishing you a wonderful weekend and a Happy Mother’s Day!
