Mini Monsters!

Ed from mini monsters came to visit us this week. He brought in a snake, spider, millipede and bearded dragon for us to see touch and hold. We also found out lots of interesting facts about the animals. The spider had eight eyes and the snake smells with his tongue!!!

Glorious Growing!

Come and look at our fantastic vegetable patch. We planted the seeds and patiently waited for them to grow. We watered them and weeded the patch and now they have grown into plants.

We planted strawberries, lettuce beetroot, courgettes, broad beans, carrots and radishes.

Real little red hens!

Look who came to visit Reception. Real little red hens.

We found out about how to look after the hens. We gave them water, food and lots of strokes and cuddles. We also looked at all their different body parts and practised using the words we learned. We had one boy – cockerel and two girls.

Grass head trolls

We have been learning all about the troll in the Three Billy Goats Gruff Story. We thought about some different words to describe him – ugly, scary, mean, angry, unkind.

   We then designed our own trolls, which we made with compost, a pair of tights, grass seed and some materials for eyes, nose, ears and mouth.DSCF0010 (2)

 Our trolls needed water, light and compost to grow.

Look at how long the grass grew!

Our Trip to Gressenhall

We had a fantastic day at Gressenhall Farm. We went for a special Three Billy Goat’s Gruff day to learn more and explore different parts of the story.

We dressed up as trolls!

We went to the woods for a special workshop to make clay troll heads. We used the natural materials that we found in the woods to decorate our trolls. We have displayed them in the library at school. Come and take a look.
