Mini Beasts!

Mini beast workshop

This week in Newgate we have been extra busy.

We have continued our learning about measuring with non-standard units and are beginning to look at using rulers and centimetres to measure and record length accurately.

Our learning around our 'Hungry Caterpillar' topic has also continued this week. A ranger from Chester Zoo visited Newgate and all children had the opportunity to take part in a mini-beast workshop. We discussed what a mini-beast was and learnt about the life cycle of a butterfly.


This week ended with a fantastic 80’s day! We dressed up, danced and had fun wearing some really funky costumes! Thank you for all your efforts. We will be inviting Newgate only to go back in time to the 80’s again on Friday 5th October when we will be having a disco dancing Friday!


Please refer to the homework blog. Please also ensure that you are reading and returning the reading book and log daily to school in the book bag.

Many thanks,

Miss Bowler, Mrs Thombs and Mrs Bebbington.
