The dino-tastic trip By Amira On Thursday chestnut class went on a trip to Manchester museum with 4 teachers and 1 parent. First we went on the coach and had a chat. Next we got out of the coach and Hannah took us into a huge room and showed us lots of fossils that were

very old. Then we investigated a dinomurder and we had to fill in a sheet. We had to find out who was the guilty one and who was the victim. After that we had lunch and it sure was yummy because I was so hungry. Then we went and split into two groups. My group went and looked at

rainforest animals, meanwhile the other group were looking at stuffed animals but then we switched places. Finally we came back to school on the coach. ‘I had such a good time’, said Husina, ‘I would definitely like to go there again’. I had such a good time myself because it was interesting and fun.

The Magical Museum. By Leah. Chesnut class went on a trip on 10th of November with four teachers an Leah‘s mum. First we went to a coach and set off. Next we got off the

bus and lined up on the wall. Then we went into the place and entered a room. After that we looked at fossils the clues were to guess what it was and who it belonged to. Finally it was dinner

time. After dinner we looked at real live animals from the rainforest. I really liked learning about fossils and seeing real rainforest animals. I enjoyed it very much, I didn't want to go home . Spot the fossil in this photo.


Our Castleshaw Adventure. By Esha. On Tuesday we went to Castleshaw with four teachers and one parent to learn about habitats. When we got there we met a man called Nick. We talked about stuffed animals, there was a fox, a badger, a rabbit and lots more. When we went outside we had a long walk, there were mole holes and a stable. Along we stepped in squishy mud, it was slimy and squashy and we saw some cows. After diner we went to the adventure playground and after feeding the goats we went back to school. I really enjoyed it.

By Husina. Butterflies can fly and balance on flowers. Additionally they fly around landing on flowers to collect their food. You can only find butterflies in warm times like spring and summer however you won’t find them winter because their wings might freeze. I really enjoy watching them fly around because their wings move really fast. Butterflies are beautiful because of all their coloured wings . There are lots of purple butterflies and they are my favourite.

by Haider I already know some things about habitats. The things I know about habitats are that habitats are important to all animals and plants. If we did not have a habitat we could die easily. My sister said if we didn’t have a habitat we wouldn’t have a place to live. Rainforests have different types of habitats because there are lots of different types of species of animals, like tigers, monkeys, birds, butterflies, snakes and many more. My favourite thing about habitats are what we do in our habitats.

Habitats. By Sohaib. Tiger: most tigers live in Asia, specifically throughout South East Asia, China, Korea and Russia. Tigers like to live in swamps, grassland and rainforests. Usually where tigers live there are trees, bushes and clumps of tall grass. It shades the tiger from the sun when it’s extremely hot. Polar bears: polar bears main habitat is on offshore pack ice, and along coasts and islands of the Arctic region. Over 40% of all polar bears living today live in Northern Canada ,on pack ice and along the shores of the many islands there. Polar bears prefer the ice pack to other parts of there because it allows them to remain in close contract with their main food source.

After that we can be a bin tycoon and finally you have to go to the special oppmission. Then we have to solve extremely hard riddles and missions. TIPS .

The trip to Manchester Museum by Rahdia This is all about Manchester museum. On November 10th Chestnut class went on a trip to Manchester museum and we went with four teachers and Leah’s mum. First we went on the coach and had a chat. When we arrived at Manchester Museum we all lined up but we had to be careful because it was very busy. After we all lined up and went inside and we went downstars to hang our coats. Next we all went to the toilets, after we came out a member of staff called Hannah showed us around and put us in a big room with fossils. What we had to do is guess what’s inside the fossils . Then we went in a room with the oldest tree, real fossils and dinosaurs.

What we had to do is a dinosaur murder. What we did is our groups got a sheet to write which dinosaur we think is the murderer. After we finished the front we went in a other room and then we did the back page. When we finished that we chose someone to say who we think is the murderer. All of us said different things but we don’t know because dinosaurs were born in cretaceous times. After that we ate lunch and looked around fossils again


Forest school. A report by Arif. In forest school you have to listen to the rules. Don’t go in the bushes until an adult tells you to go. We collect bugs, worms, slugs and spiders. You put them in a glass and talk about what we have found. When we have finished we put them back where they belong. We do knots like a stop knot. We collect leaves and put them in a rope. Two weeks ago we cut logs. Then last week we had to colour the log and draw the tree and it said “Forest School 2011.”

Arif and Tomas cutting logs with Mr Cameron. The results. ˃


Book Report: The Hodgeheg. By Leah. My book report is about The Hodgeheg. It is a book by Dick King Smith. One day Max (a hedgehog) went out without his mum and dad’s permission and tried to get across the road. But the road was too busy. On the other side there was a woman with a big wand and children. When she went across the road the cars stopped and the

children went. He went as well but he was too slow. A bicycle came but saw Max and went around him. Then a truck came and squashed him. His mum and dad came and took him home. He got words mixed up because he had hit his head. That’s why it is called The Hodgeheg. I found this book funny because he got words mixed up.
