With God's love, all are encouraged to thrive


This half term in Science we have become experts on teeth and eating. We have studied skulls and teeth and looked at a selection of skulls from Totton Wildlife Trust. Children have analysed skulls and become teeth detectives using their knowledge of omnivores, herbivores and carnivores to guess the animal and its diet. Today we have celebrated our knowledge by dissecting barn owl pellets. The children were delighted to identify rodent body parts including skulls, bones, pelvises, ear cavities and vertebrae. There was such a buzz of excitement as children made their discoveries! Mrs Simmons was so impressed with your observation skills and identification knowledge.
