Zoo Lab

Class One enjoyed Zoo lab.

They saw a tarantula, a snake, a giant millipede, a climbing tree frog, a giant snail and a rat.  The animal handler talked to them about the animals and how different characteristics of each creature make great features for a dinosaur such as the claws they noticed on the reptiles helped them hunt and eat their prey, just like a dinosaur.  They had the opportunity to examine each animal closely and hold them if they wished.


A mystery winter visitor

During our Winter topic Class One had a visit from Mrs Hall with her ski clothes and equipment. Mrs Hall told us all about skiing and what is needed to keep you safe and warm on the slopes. The children asked some great questions and enjoyed handling the equipment. 



Class One went on a trip in the library in Slaithwaite. We met the librarian and we learnt about how the library works and about borrowing books. The children looked at both fiction and non-fiction books. They listened to a story called “Argh… Spiders” and found out facts about spiders in a non – fiction book.

We did a letter hunt around the library and found out the mystery word. The children then completed a craft activity and made  a spider in his web.

Federation Class One Wet and Wild Outdoor Day

Outdoor story workshops were a huge hit at our wet and wild day.We found the Gruffalo in our woodland today as Alan took us on an amazing story telling adventure. We got to use our skills to make story characters, picture frames and transient art from natural materials. We became scientists exploring pond water for tadpoles, snails and other creatures. Hunting for bugs in the sticky slime was very exciting. Having a picnic on the field with all our federation friends in the sunshine was lovely.


Federation Class One Space Day

All the federation Class Ones came together at Wilberlee for a super space day. We painted planets, built rockets and spaceships, created alien sock puppets, rode moon buggies, dodged asteroids, went on space word hunts, made playdough space models, had a space picnic and enjoyed super space stories, whilst we made new friends.

Our Visit To The Fire Station

Class One went to visit Slaithwaite fire station as part of our topic. We were very lucky as a police van was visiting at the same time so we got to see a police woman and firemen with their vehicles.
