Year 1 Animal Diet investigation
Year 1’s topic this term is Africa and they have the opportunity this week to classify African animals based on their diets by investigating their waste products. ( it was really made of flour, oxo cubes and salt—don’t panic)
Once the diets were figured out the children then had the opportunity to add to the waste products by introducing items such as grass, seeds, meat and feathers to show what herbivores carnivores and omnivores eat.
Parking on the Zig Zags
We have noticed again that the same parents are parking on the Zig zags outside the school gates. They are there to protect your children and it is illegal to park on them. Please can you refrain from doing so.
