Today we went out into the garden to explore ladybirds. We investigated what they look like and how they move. Afterwards we used our observations to create an interesting word bank bursting with adjectives and verbs to describe ladybirds. Tomorrow we will use this vocabulary to create our very own ladybird poem in the style of James Carter’s Caterpillar poem.
Another two radio stars are born! Two of our new teachers from Starbank Road delivered their very first Rocket Radio shows last week.

1RB have enjoyed experimenting, planning, designing and making their musical instruments in Design and Technology this week! They had to think about what resources would be best to use, how they can be fixed together and to make sure it created a sound.
Take a look at their brilliant musical instruments!

1RB enjoyed used the sound recorders today in their Music lesson. They used their bodies to make different sounds which linked to animals, weather and transport. They chose to use their voices to make the sounds of the lion’s roar and a car. They also experimented with their hands and feet to create the sounds of hailstones and the lion’s striding feet!
Can you guess which sounds link with the car, hailstones and lion?
1RB loved their visit to the Eco Park! We met Guy there who talked to us about the different kinds of trees we will see there. We learnt and identified deciduous, evergreens, oak trees and many more. We talked about how they are all unique and how the leaves differ from each other. We walked around the Eco park to see how it had changed since our last seasonal walk. There are many new colours and many flowers are now in bloom.
