In Year 1 we held an investigation to see whether an egg would crack from a height!
We tried dropping it from lots of different heights and observed what happened to the egg each time.
Afterwards, we had a discussion about how we could protect the egg from breaking if we dropped it.
Do you have any ideas?
Year 1 had a very exciting visit today from Andy the Bug man to start our new topic, Eggs – let’s get cracking!
We got to meet lots of different creepy crawlies and we learnt so much about them all!
We met reptiles, molluscs, arachnids and insects and learnt about their life cycles. We even got to touch and hold some of them!
We are so excited to learn more about different creatures that lay eggs, check back soon to see what we get up to!
The Year 2 Great Fire of London homework has been of an excellent quality. The children were asked to choose a focus for a project for their home learning about the Great Fire of 1666.
Thanks very much to Ms Hart who was here until 6pm finishing this display. Also to all the parents and carers for their support with the home learning.
This week at Besson Street Gardens, Year 1 sampled lots of different types of honey.
Over the past few weeks we have been learning all about Bees and finally got to taste some of the honey we have talked about!
We tried honey from Sainsbury’s, Spain and Besson Street itself and then we took a vote to see which was our favourite!
Do you like honey? What kind of honey is your favourite?

In 1G we have been learning about bees at Besson Street Gardens!
We have learnt all about their different body parts, how the collect nectar and pollen to make honey.
This week we learnt how worker bees communicate with each other.
They perform a waggle dance to show the direction and distance of a collection of pollen!
We made our own bee masks then went outside and tried the waggle dance for ourselves! It was so fun.
Check back in soon soon to see what else we get up to at Besson Street Gardens!
