Big Bang

Children in Owls enjoyed their day at the GTS 'Big Bang' science festival.

Home Learning 

Owls: Write descriptive sentences about your weekend using personification and similes

Otters: Match the animal to the simile description.  Can you create 3 or more similes?

Hedgehogs:  Observe any birds or other animals you see in your garden over the weekend.  On each day, you could check your garden at different times and record which birds/animals you see or hear there.  Where are they and what are they doing? Make this information into a little booklet (fold a piece of A4 paper in half).
