On Wednesday we went on a train from Temple Meads to Avonmouth and back. We had to note down things that we saw for every letter of the alphabet, the hardest one was X! The people on the train were really nice. The train manager even did a special announcement for us! We loved it!
On Friday there was an eclipse and we got to go outside and watch with special glasses. Parents and carers were invited to join us. People are saying that the next solar eclipse will happen when we are much older. When we looked through the glasses we could see the sun in a crescent shape.
This week was poetry week at school and we have, learnt, performed and written poems.

In Science this week we have been learning about teeth and the different types of teeth such as canines, molars, incisors, milk teeth and adult teeth. The protective layer that is around the outside of the teeth is called enamel. It is the strongest substance in the body. We have also been designing posters about teeth. The horrid part was seeing the gum disease and the tooth decay but it was important for us to learn it! Even our reading comprehension task this week was about teeth.
