We had a fun filled day at Marwell Zoo, we loved seeing so many animals from all over the world! Our workshop was very interesting and we were allowed to touch some creatures- some were alive, and some were not- can you guess which ones? During our workshop we sorted animals and learnt that mammals have fur or hair, reptiles have dry scales and fish have slippery wet scales.
What a great start to our 'On Safari' topic for the summer term.
Year 1 gave a fantastic liturgy on the lessons we can learn from the parable of The Prodigal Son. They were very ambitious and acted out the parable whilst Father Phil read the scripture. Such a sensible and talented class!
As part of our Geography topic, Barnaby Bear came to visit us. We went for a walk around our local area and showed him some important features in Portsmouth: the town, the Guildhall and the park. We recorded the different types of shops that we saw and sketched some fantastic pictures of the Guildhall.
During our artwork we were inspired by the flowers that we saw. We used a variety of familiar objects to print with and experimented how they could be used to create flower pictures.
