Handa

Another week has whizzed past – where is the time going? The children have all been trying very hard with their assessment tasks in Maths and English, as well as learning more about Handa. She is no longer surprised – she now has a hen to assist her. She is finding lots of other Savannah animals too. This has helped us in our Science work, where we have been continuing to think about mammals, reptiles and amphibians, birds and fish. This week we really had to think about whether the bird and hedgehogs were carnivores ….the reasoning and discussions were lively! In RE we have continued with the story of Easter Week – we have reached the sad part of Good Friday, but next week we will be able to think about Easter Sunday, and also eat some Hot Cross Buns – so not all sad! We began to make Masai ceremonial necklaces last week, after having a Masai Jumping competition – this week we have nearly completed them – but we had another go at the Jumping Competition – to see if anyone had improved. In PE Mr Major had planned an assault course Safari – which was “brilliant” and “really cool”! We had a great time at Forest School going on a minibeast safari. It turned out that we didn’t have to go any further than base camp! We just needed to lift the log seats! There were many worms, several slugs and centipedes, some slug or snail eggs and the best one was a massive copper shelled beetle. It was very exciting. Next week we are hoping we might find another sort of egg…..!
