Creating a habitat for a crocodile

 

We created a habitat for a crocodile using natural objects we found outside on the school field. We used stones, mud, sticks, pine cones, acorns, conkers, leaves, twigs, wood, tree bark, water from puddles and grass to build a habitat that would be suitable for a crocodile. We made sure we thought carefully about what a crocodile's habitat would need in order for them to live and survive in the wild.

Snow!

 

Today we went on a spontaneous walk to Knowl Hill common after seeing some snow fall. We were fortunate enough to have some snow settle on the ground of the common, so we were able to discover what it looked like, how it felt and what sound it made as we stepped on it.
