Footprints from the past

Our topic for Autumn term is all about dinosaurs!!

 

As well as hypothesizing extinction theories, we have been making fossils! We have been traipsing our overgrown, gnarly feet through sand, just like T Rex would have done. To produce a cast fossil, we have used the more modern invention of jelly to fill in the mold fossil. We are keeping our fingers crossed that it sets and turns out as perfectly as the ones we've been looking at...

Enterprise Week

Active Planet 

 

This spring term we are on a voyage of discovery about our active planet.  From volcanoes to earthquakes, we will be using our geographical and scientific minds to explore the inner workings of everything 'Active Planet'.   Please see the curriculum map for further details. 

While investigating the Hindu faith, we had a go at making a cauliflower curry, chapati and lassi banquet!
