Blackbirds

Spring II 

Another fabulous half term in Blackbirds developing our learning skills.  Our 'Under the Sea' topic has been so interesting that the children have been doing extra research at home and proudly bringing it to class each morning to share with their friends.  As an introduction to the topic the children completed a sea creature quiz and began watching the Blue Planet.  They continued to develop their research skills, identifying sea creature facts and making their own Top Trump card game.  Using the research, the children went outside to measure out some of the fabulous mammals and gain an appreciation of their size.

To support learning about healthy eating we made fruit kebabs.  We learnt about the importance of good hygiene when preparing food, cut the fruit into chunks and made our kebabs.  Delicious!!  We used the activity  to support our instruction writing in English.
