Nocturnal Day

Key Stage One have all enjoyed a fantastic Nocturnal Day to help the Year 2 children prepare for SATs.

We all came to school dressed in our pyjamas ready to learn more about nocturnal animals, the jobs that people do at night time and go on a journey into the darkness!

First, we went on a walk around school and before long we ended up in a deep, dark forest. It was so dark we couldn't even see where to sit down! We had to listen really carefully to the sounds of nocturnal animals and decide which ones we could hear. We heard owls, bats, foxes and lots more!

Then we investigated the jobs that people do at night time and learnt why these are so important. We completed some fantastic writing to tell others about the jobs people do and it helped us to understand what might happen if there was no one to do them for us.

Finally, we became fact finders to learn more about nocturnal animals and how their bodies help them to hunt in the dark. Then we completed some observational drawings and matched facts tot he correct animals. You can see some of these on our photos!

We were all exhausted after such a busy day! It's a good job we were already in our pyjamas and ready for bed!
