OUR VISIT TO STAUNTON COUNTRY PARK AND FARM
On Friday 15th June, we visited Staunton Country Park and Farm with Chimps' Class. We visited the farm animals, and took part in activities learning about 'minibeasts'. We went on a bug hunt, made collages of minibeasts using natural materials found in the woods, made a human millipede, learnt about camouflage by playing the game 'Woolly Worms', and all had the opportunity to touch a Giant Millipede and an African Land Snail.
We have taken part in several Autumn Walks around the Academy grounds in the past week. We have listened for all the sounds we can hear, looked at the environment around us, and collected Autumn items such as leaves and acorns. We have used our collection of Autumn items to count, sort, make a number line, make shakers, and to investigate in class.
We helped to make three harvest loaves to share with the rest of the Academy. We had to use a rolling pin and our hands to roll the dough. Can you find the mouse hiding on the harvest loaf?
