Spring term was a very busy term for Class 1 with lots of exciting things that happened!
Exmoor Zoo Visit
It started with a visit from Exmoor Zoo. Steve brought in lots of different animals and talked about their habitats to us. We saw snakes, cockroaches, mice, woodlice, giant African land snails and he even brought Rascal the meerkat to see us!

Burton Art Gallery
We had a fantastic trip to the Burton Art Gallery to attend a printing workshop where we made collagraph fish as well as explored the Lego exhibition. We had such a brilliant time! We even entered our own prints to the annual schools exhibition and won!
Northam Burrows
In Science, continuing our habitats unit, we took a trip to Northam Burrows where we explored rock pools and looked around the visitors centre. We learnt so much to support our learning back in school!

In Design Technology, the children created bunting to help the children in FSU learn their numbers to 10. They conducted market research to help them understand what their client wanted, worked as a team to create their bunting, think about the design and how to represent the numbers on the bunting. Don’t they look fantastic!
