The children have had a brilliant week learning about Iceland. They have learnt what a volcano is and built their own active volcano. They have also created the Aurora Borealis (northern lights) using ice painting and other media. We have also learnt about how animals can survive in cold climates due to their extra layers of fat and fur.

Children had fun mixing ingredients and flipping their pancakes!

We went on a walk after the stormy weather to see what had changed or stayed the same. Then, we collected items blown down to create a den, and planted a branch which children  created decorations for to brighten up our room.

  

We learnt about instrument names and what they sound like.

Today Class 7 went on a scavenger hunt around school. The clues led up back to our sand pit and hiding inside it was PETER RABBIT! Peter Rabbit has come to Palmers Cross for our Spring 2 topic ‘The Adventures of Peter Rabbit’. Class 7 have made Peter Rabbit his very own house, bed and food/water bowls. Everyone is very excited for Peter Rabbit’s stay!

The children had a fantastic Australia day in Reception. They used their senses to complete bush tucker trails including taste tests, smell tests and feely boxes. They also learnt about aboriginal art and had a go at their own. We finished our day with a Aussie BBQ.
