The day snow hit school by the Buzzards class.

On Friday 8th December the children of Sparkbrook woke up to see soft, white snow covering their garden. One eyewitness (Eesa) told me that he was super excited and was ecstatic to come to school and play in the snow with his friends. A second told me that he could not wait to build a snowman. Joha said she is hoping it will snow all weekend!

We have checked the weather today at school and have learnt a new piece of vocabulary. We now know what ‘sleet’ is and we understand the difference between sleet and snow.

Please comment on our blog post to let us know what the weather is like in your city or country.
We hope you all have a very merry Christmas. Ho ho ho!

From the Buzzards class.

Looking after an Apex Predator

This week at school, we have been creating our very own Apex predator. We created a variety of amazing predators including the:
Polomonk, this animal has the head of a polar bear and the body of a monkey. He is able to swing through the trees and attack prey with his incredibly sharp teeth.
My class are going to comment on this post with the name of their predator and some tips for looking after them.

Our Predator Wow Day

Today, in Year 3, we had a visit from the animal man called Spike. He was so cool and caring. He reminded us of Steve Irwin, (we know all about him too, but that’s a story for another day) Spike looks after lots of animals including a Python called Jambo,  a Kinkajou called Esta and a Gecko called Leo. We got to hold the animals and stroke some of them too. A few of us were scared, but with encouragement from our friends we were became very brave. We hope you like all of our photos!

Now he lives with his Aunty and Uncle also his cousin Dudley.He had an invitation to a wizard school called Hogwarts that is a place full of mystery and curious creatures.  I can’t wait to see what happens next.
