Roll up, Roll Up!

On Monday we were visited by a circus performer called Obby.

He knew lots of tricks and circus skills.

His performance made us all say “Gosh” and “Wow!”

We asked Obby lots of questions. We found out that he loves learning new things. He started learning tricks when he was just 6 years old. Also, he learns his tricks by watching other people or videos.

At the end of the day some children performed the skills Obby had taught us.

A visit to the Wildlife Centre

 

This half term our topic is Mother Earth.  We visited Peckham Wildlife Centre to find out about the living things we share the earth with.

IMG_0251We pretended to be trees. We couldn’t move because our legs were roots which grew into the ground. We had to reach and collect raindrops. If we collected too much or too little water we would not grow well. Trees need just the right amount of water to grow.
