Autumn Term Topic
Our topic for the coming half term is Time Traveller:
Tick, tock, tick, tock... the hands on the clock never stop. From the moment we are born, from toddler to teen, middle age to elderly, time stops for no man.
Find out what happens to our bodies and brains as we grow older, and how we cope with these changes.
Take a good look at yourself... How has your face changed since you were a baby and how will it change as you grow older? Can you photograph it, change it, age it?
And what would happen if the clock struck 13?
In 'Tom's Midnight Garden', he travels to the past. What an adventure! Imagine you could time travel too: where would you go and what would you like to see? Will you head back to your past or into your future? You decide.
Tick, tock, tick, tock... the hands on the clock never stop!
Autumn Term Topic
Our topic for the coming term is Beast Creator:
A bug, a creepy-crawly, a beast! He'll tickle your skin then go in for the sting!
Arachnids, invertebrates, molluscs and myriapods, hiding in nooks and beneath darkened rocks....Come search for these minibeasts, and lets sort them out! How many legs? How many wings? Who does it eat and who eats it? Can you classify it? Can you draw it or make it?
Build a bug hotel or a wonderful wormery - then watch them wriggle and burrow, mixing earth as they go!
Discover where in the world you'll find the deadliest beasts - scorpions, ants and venemous spiders.
Why not become a 'Beast Creator'?
