As part of our 'Big City' topic, the year 1 and 2 pupils recently enjoyed a trip to Sheffield. We caught the train from Grindleford station before exploring the city and completing a series of Geography based challenges. We also enjoyed lunch in the 'Winter Gardens' and visited the children's library.!

Enjoying hot cross buns made by reception and year ones in the sunshine!

We worked in our house groups to rehearse and perform poems to the rest of the school!

Poetry Day

Busy writing up our findings from our dinosaur poo making investigation. The children recorded whether they thought the poo was from a carnivore or a herbivore and explained how they knew. 

This week in science we have been making our own dinosaur poo! We made it with flour, salt, warm water and cornflower. We then added either leaves (to be herbivore poo) or fake bones made of card (to be carnivore poo). We then painted them ready to be investigated by different groups of children.

We have also been learning about verbs and sentence structure by completing a verb relay race!

We have had an excellent start to the term in the Infant Class and have thoroughly enjoyed our learning already! Our new starters have settled in very well and are key members of our class already.


Over the last couple of weeks we have been on dinosaur and fossil hunts, forest school afternoons and have been learning about Pangea in the time of the dinosaurs and the continents in our world today. This week we have begun learning about Mary Anning and her important discoveries before we create our own news reports about her next week using the green screen!
