Pond dipping and visiting our new classrooms

This week we have turned our minibeast focus to the school pond and we have learnt about lots of aquatic creatures. Some of the amazing things we found include young newts, dragonfly larvae, pond snails and ramshorn snails. Mrs Newman found the case of a dragonfly larva so we could look at it really closely. We finished our minibeasts topic by sketching a spider in our special art books that we will keep throughout our time at Sheen Mount - we used the observational skills we have been practising this term to do beautifully accurate drawings. The most exciting thing this week was finding out about our new classrooms, meeting new teachers and seeing what it's like being in Year 1. The teachers were all so impressed at how we behaved when we became Moles, Hedgehogs and Otters for a few hours!
