Week 4- 30th September 2019
This week has been full of great learning opportunities and exciting activities.
We began the week creating our own fossils! We learnt how fossils are created over 10,000 years and how palaeontologists might use them to identify new species as well as evolution. Using salt dough, we used a range of shells and dinosaur skeletons to make our very own impressions.
‘’ This lesson has been brilliant! You can really see all the detail of the skeletons!’’
‘’ I think pterodactyls have evolved into bats because they have a similar bone structure to one you might find in a bat.’’
On Thursday, we went down to Shenley Park for our annual apple juicing trip! We were able to taste many of the delicious apples that were on offer! We were allowed to such a variety of apples that included; Rosemary Russet, Caville Rouge, Beauty of Kent and Laxton Rearguard.
We helped to cut up the apples using an apple cutter. Then, we took it in turns to press the apples. Finally, we juiced the apples, this became tough especially as we got closer to the bottom. We managed to make a whole jug full of apple juice. All of us enjoyed a little taste! Thank you Shenley Park and Liz for letting us take part in our last apple juicing at Shenley!
