Marwell Zoo

We would have loved going to Marwell Zoo in the sunshine this week.

Check out their webcams on the Marwell Zoo website. 

Seasonal Long Study

In January (when it was winter) we looked at the plants and trees growing below the Y1 park.

We have been learning their names and watching how they change through the seasons.

Below are photos of what they looked like then.

When you are outside, either in your garden or having your daily walk,  why not see if you can spot what Ivy, Snowberry, Horse Chestnut and Blackberry Bushes look like now - in the spring?  




How exciting that the new temporary hospital in London is called the 'Florence Nightingale Hospital'.

Why not WOW  your families by telling them all you learnt about Florence Nightingale last term.
