As we have been learning about animals and pets, Reception decided it would be good to walk to Pet City and see the pets they had on offer there. We had a great time wandering the aisles and trying to decide what our favourite pet would be. After a lot of thought, Reception penned some letters to Mrs Lawley to request a pet for our classroom. We waited patiently for an answer…
Then one day we got the phone call we had been waiting for. We were allowed a pet rabbit – Reception can be very persuasive!
Have a look at the pictures of us welcoming Billy the Bunny into our classroom. We have had a wonderful 2 weeks with him so far!
When we arrived at Y.S.P we were introduced to Natalie in a huge room. We talked about what it is like in the park. First we saw a white tree which was made of iron. The second sculpture we saw was a very interesting house for birds called ‘Fly Away Home’. A few minutes later we saw an octopus sculpture which was very sparkly and was covered in crystals. After that we visited the totem pole which had a whole story behind it about a tribe who had been starving for a long time. But then one day the Thunderbird God came and killed the whale that ate all the fish. A while after we saw a robot and we thought it was dancing and we also thought it was a cat. After lunch we went to the field which was called St. John’s Sculpture Park. Then it was time to make a sculpture. In Poplar, we made animals doing different things, such as a juggling giraffe, an elephant on a unicycle, a pouncing octopus and a spider walking along a tightrope. In Rowan, we made sculptures of animals, but had to adapt them so that they had another function. For example, one group made a cat which was called Water Works that sprayed water. We used blue tubes that were used as water spraying out of its mouth. We used a tyre as a bowl and we used any blue thing as water. As Rowan were coming home there was a fire on the motorway, so we got very delayed. Poplar had a normal journey home. Thank you for reading our report.
Year 3 have been working very hard on their special animal clocks such as Monkeys, Penguins, Owls and Dolphins. Some were outstanding. This is how your child made a beautiful first touch to their clock. Then they got another piece of coloured card and made another lovely part of their clock. Slowly and carefully, they glued their parts together and started to make a new masterpiece.
Once they glued everything together, they got a mechanism and a battery which made their clocks work.
I am sure you will agree with us when we say they look super!
