Year 2's Trip to the Country Park.

For our science topic Year 2 visited the Country Park to look and learn more about habitats.

We were all very excited when we arrived...

We met our wildlife expect, Holly, who introduced us to habitats and creatures that live in the park. She showed us a millipede which Kayla got to hold! She was very brave!


We went on a mini-beast hunt and found lots of different creatures!


After lunch we went bird watching on the Marsh... 

Finally we made our own habitats for creatures we might find in a forest.... Can you identify the creatures living in these habitats?

What a spectacular trip we had!

School Council visits our new school.

Just before half term the school council were able to go and visit our new school building. They were shown around the site and learnt lots of new facts about our school and how it was being built. So if you have a questions please ask your school council reps as they might know the answer.
