Teach the Teacher!


This  week we had Ellie teaching us some new things....

  • Elephants have as many as 150,000 muscles in their trunks!
  • The sun is 93 million miles away from earth
  • Mercury is shrinking and........
  • My favourite fact was the guinea pigs have 258 bones in their bodies, which is 49 more than humans!!! I wonder where all those bones are?!

Thank you to Ellie for these amazing facts! Tune in next week for more amazing stuff!yes



This week it was Stanley's turn to teach us some new things.....

Did you know that in Tudor times they put marigolds into butter to make it more yellow?

Did you know that baby rabbits are called kittens? I wonder if baby cats are called rabbits?!

We also learn that the Romans were the first people to put their leader's heads on coins to make them look more important.

These were just some of the things that Stanley taught us.

Thank you Stanley!laugh
