We’re going on a worm hunt, we’re going to find a big one! Reception did just that last week during RMS GO.

During their adventure, pupils discovered a large worm that was about 20cm in length. Interestingly, these creatures are covered in tiny hairs that help them move around as they consume waste and create nutrient-rich compost for plants.

Years 3 and 5 used a Japanese technique called Hapa Zome to extract natural dye from the plants around them. The technique involves using a mallet, so we had a safety talk before creating beautiful canvas pictures of our surrounding world using the extracted dyes. There were plenty of stunning results!

In Year 1, we had a lesson on Pond Life. We went on a field trip to the school pond where we observed pond skaters and a heron, and saw evidence of fish beneath the surface as we quietly watched for bubbles. On our way, we couldn’t resist the temptation to roll down the buttercup meadow.

In Year 4, students learned how to prepare for rainy weather by using natural resources and tarpaulin to construct water-resistant camps. They also demonstrated their excellent proficiency in knot skills.
