Gruffalo Hunt

On Friday 30th November in Year 1 we went on a very exciting Gruffalo Hunt!

We followed the clues and directions around Year 1 and the animals from the Gruffalo were hidden in different places. We turned left and right and we used a compass to help us to move North, South, East and West. Then we wrote our own directions for how to get back from the library to our classrooms. It was great fun!

Poo Problem!

Year 1 have been learning about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores in Science.

Mrs Harrison brought in some cat food for us to look at and some fish food.  Mrs Wilde brought in rabbit food.  The fish flakes and blood worms were a bit smelly! 

Then we met Zoe the Zookeeper and she had a problem to solve … which animal had escaped and left some poo on the path?

We looked at the zoo map to see which animal enclosures were close by.

Then we looked closely at some different animal poo to decide which animal it had come from.

There was a large elephant poo with hay and grass in and a tiger poo with small bones and crushed bones in.


Finally we decided that the poo on the path came from an omnivore because we found leaves, grass, hay and crushed animal bones in it!  We think it was probably a cheeky monkey because their enclosure was close by.


It was a bit disgusting but fun at the same time.

Well done for helping Zoe to solve her problem Year 1!
