Zebras make their own eco-garden!

Zebras have been very busy recently. We have recently worked with the Wildlife Trust to design and create our own eco-garden on Giltbrook retail park. Two weeks ago, we had Sarah from the Wildlife Trust visit school to show us how to make bug hotels, seed bombs, pinecone bird feeders and pea pods. We also got to examine different plants we could put into our garden including lavender, mint and strawberries.

After Sarah visited us, we designed our own eco-gardens ready for our trip to Giltbrook.

The class were very sensible and really enjoyed creating our own eco-garden. They all had a chance to add to their garden, explore the vegetable patch and hunt for minibeasts! Thank you to the parent helpers who came down with us on the trip too!

If you want to see ‘Zebra garden’, it is in between Decathlon and IKEA just next to the small car park.

Zebras become explorers for the day!

Zebras have been very busy over the last few weeks. We enjoyed an ‘Explorer Day’ for our new topic including the film ‘Up’. The pupils made their own explorer hats, packed their bags and solved a mysterious code to find Paddington Bear!

Land ahoy!

Zebra class have been hard at work this week, drawing tally charts and pictograms in Maths, writing up their diary entries from a character’s view in Writing and learning about different habitats in Science.

We have began to create our model boats that we have been designing the last few weeks. The different groups worked really well together and they have started to take shape! Thank you for bringing in bottles and odd bits of recycling to help us.

For all of Zebra’s hard work, we also had a visitor Friday from Winnie with Mr Sainsbury!

Here is some artwork created by Ellie-Grace that impressed everyone in her Star Time group. Well done!

Zebra’s new project!

Zebra class have come back after the Christmas break with a great attitude and already have been hard at work in all of their lessons.

Our new text for the half term is ‘The Lighthouse Keepers ‘s Lunch’ by Ronda and David Armitage.

Based on this text, we are going to be building our own boats over the half term and the class investigated different materials to build their boats out of.

We have also learnt about how to be safe on the internet, discussing different things we can and can’t share.

Finally, the class have worked hard in their Maths lessons with division calculations.

Keep up the good work Zebra class!
