This week we have had a focus on Science, the children learned about animals and their differences and similarities. They classified diurnal and nocturnal animals and practiced using their senses (other than sight) to help them to comprehend some of the ways nocturnal animals communicate. The children also learned about the ways animals adapt to survive harsh environments, for example, by migrating or hibernating.
The children were incredibly excited to find out that the golden egg that Captain Swashbuckle had left us had hatched over the half term. There were very distinctive footprints left over the classroom and the children have come to the conclusion it was a dinosaur that had hatched out. This meant the children spent lots of time exploring the playground and classroom to try and find the dinosaur. We have also learnt lots of dinosaur names and facts.
