Trip to RHS Rosemoor, Torrington


Fernworthy class had a fantastic time visiting RHS Rosemoor in Torrington.   We enjoyed a workshop planting peas and they also went on a flower scavenger hunt. The children were provided with buckets to collect a range of natural resources including leaves and petals they found  on the ground to then make crowns! It was a fantastic opportunity for the children to apply the knowledge they have learnt in their topic 'Sunshine and Sunflowers' as well as linking with our recently studied literacy book 'Errols Garden'. They were able to recall facts and information they had learnt to discuss seasons, plants and flower life cycles.

Handa's Surprise

The children have enjoyed studying and learning about the text 'Handa's Surprise' by Eileen Browne.  As well as looking at the characters and setting of the story we have discussed what the word 'surprise' means and have spoken about the children's experiences of surprises. During our non-electric day we made our own animal books mostly based on the animals in the books, Handa's surprise although it was great to see many of the children having their own independent ideas about which animal they would like to write about.  The children were really proud of their books and were excited to read them to each other! They were also inspired to extend this love of book making and we had lots of other inventions of 'Handa's Surprise' created with the children swapping 'Handa' for their own name and choosing their own characters to meet along the way!
