Gorilla

Gorilla class have been learning lots about our new topic; ‘Batteries not included’, it covers many of different science-based topics. We have learnt about space, the planets and the solar system. We looked at toys that move with and without batteries and even visited the local toy shop and bought some number games to bring back to play at school. Next, we experienced light and dark which was really scary! Steve took us in the tunnels at Fort Purbrook! It was so dark we couldn’t see anything! Armed with torches we used them to find our way through the tunnel then all of a sudden, we were out in the sun which felt very bright!

In February we took part in an activity day at the Fort; we tried archery, we climbed and joined in with a treasure hunt. It was a great day and children did lots of talking as they were excited about the different activities. The weather was a bit wet but that didn’t dampen our spirits.

Recently however, we have been very excited and focussed on an amazing opportunity that came about because we live near the dockyard. We were invited to look around HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier! We were all so very excited! It was huge; we spent two hours walking and climbing up and down ladders to explore as much of the ship as we could. Everyone was really well behaved and asked great questions! We went in the hanger, up to the flight deck, onto the bridge and some of us even sat in the Captain’s chair! We all feel very lucky to have been on!
