Station Farm - Summer 2013

We had a visit from Mr. Franks to tell us all about dairy farming.....he even brought his tractor in!

Our visits to Blade's Farm

Martha's mum came in to teach us all about dog agility with Alfie and Lola.

As part of Aspirations Week, Harriett's mum came in to talk to us about her hobby. She came in dressed as a lady from the Women's Land Army and showed us lots of memorabilia from people who made their mark in the Second World War.

We had a really enjoyable time at the Rural Life Museum in Glastonbury


Mad Hatter's Tea Party Day!

Our visit to Cheddar Gorge.

Our most recent visitors.....too cute for words!

Isabella went to the museums in London and brought us back a packet of freeze dried strawberries to try. We thought they were very sweet and delicious.

Harriett brought in a newspaper article telling about thousands of dolphins that had been spotted together in the Pacific Ocean. It inspired us to carry out some dolphin themed learning.

In Moorhen Class we have been learning about the grisly secrets of Richard III's lost grave. We linked this learning to our Science and labelled parts of the skeleton. In our Outdoor Education session, we then drew the bones and made a skeleton from sticks.

We have enjoyed taking part in the RSPB Big Bird Watch.

We had excellent fun discovering all about dinosaurs in the Dinodome.

The girls exploring our new role play area....a Dinosaur Museum.
