Charles Darwin – Adaptation

Class 17 have been learning about Charles Darwin’s theory on adaptation. In Science we used a range of resources to use as Finches Beaks and used these resources to pick up a range of items in 30 seconds to see which beak was best adapted for picking up food.



I have been made aware of a potential closure of the memorial park due to the forecast of high winds.

The Thorne Moorends Town Council Facebook page states

‘Current forecasts suggest that we may experience wind gusts of up to 56mph overnight and tomorrow. If such winds do arise, due to the high number of trees in the park we may need to close access to Thorne Memorial Park for safety reasons. Access to the café however will be maintained. 

We know that a number of parents use the park as a shortcut to Green Top Primary School so please potentially plan your journeys on the basis that access to the park may be restricted.’



Crucial Crew

Class 17 had a great day at Crucial Crew developing life skills. We all took part in a variety of scenarios ranging from a Magistrates’ court, first aid, anti social behaviour, fire safety and road safety. The day was extremely informative, fun and taught us how we can keep ourselves and others safe.
