We scooped up the egg and put it into a basket so we can look after it inside. So far it has not hatched!

We have also started our Knight training in science, looking at what we need to keep our bodies healthy. More pictures to follow!

We got a new class pet!


They are two Black Moor fish. We voted for the best names and decided on Superman and Nemo! Unfortunately after the snow we lost Nemo, but Superman is alive and well! We will miss him when he goes home with Miss Jones.

We saw some Ducklings hatch:

    They were very cute but very noisy!

… and got very big!


because of the snow we only had a week with the ducklings. Luckily we are getting some more eggs next term!

We learnt about 3D shapes, went on a shape walk, and even made our bodies into 3D shapes:

Finally we re-enacted scenes from QUIET! by Paul Bright. We re-enacted it so well that Mr Etheridge came to see what was happening.
