Chameleons’ Volcano models – Part 1


Posted by tchameleons | Posted in Blog Posts | Posted on 25-04-2017

Chameleons have loved learning about The Earth and how it was formed. We have particularly loved making model Volcanoes!

These photos show the process of how we made our models.

It was great to see amazing team work and to see the transformation from old newspapers and a plastic bottle into an erupting Volcano!


World Book Day fun in Chameleons!

We had a fabulous day on World Book Day, dressing up, reading books and having a Where’s Wally treasure hunt!

Congratulations to the amazing, inspiring children who participated in Rock Challenge too!

(I’m sure David Walliams would be very proud of seeing his book ‘The Boy in the Dress’ performed so brilliantly!

How to Wash Your Elephant! Chameleons have been following instructions…


Posted by tyear3 | Posted in Blog Posts | Posted on 07-03-2017

Have you got an elephant who is always rolling in mud?

Elephants need to be kept clean or they often become unhealthy. Use this handy set of instructions to ensure you keep your pet squeaky clean.

  1. Firstly, prepare your elephant for their bathing session in an area with plenty of space. Make sure that your animal is calm, well-fed and content. It may help to tickle their tummies to relax them if they are nervous about getting wet.

2. Next, prop up step ladders beside your pet otherwise it is impossible to reach the top of their body. Climb the ladders carefully as you carry the hosepipe. Use lukewarm water to completely soak your elephant’s skin.

3. After that, squeeze a whole bottle of elephant shampoo onto the animal’s back. Use the sweeping brush to reach up and scrub every part of their dirty skin. Start at their back and work downwards to their feet.


4. Afterwards, rinse them off until all of the soap suds are gone. Be very careful not to let any of the shampoo drip into your pet’s eyes as the pain could cause them to suddenly charge at you.

5. Now, you need to make your elephant lie down. A tasty bun may be helpful to convince them to go down to the ground. Use the sand paper to file the dead skin from the bottom of their feet and the nail clippers to trim their toenails. As a result, you should watch out for sharp bits of flying elephant toenail!



6. Finally, you need to gently clean your elephant’s nostrils and ears using the feather duster. This can be very dangerous. Move quickly away from your elephant’s trunk if they begin to shake or start to breathe more heavily. You do not want to be in the firing line of a powerful elephant sneeze!

On Monday 21st November we had a special visitor. She was Isis, wife of the famous Egyptian God Osiris. We joined her on a trip down the Nile where we met crocodiles, made pyramids and helped to mummify a body. Luckily it was all in our imagination! Enjoy our photos that show us enjoying our dramatic journey.

Chameleons visit to the SEARCH museum


Posted by tyear3 | Posted in Blog Posts | Posted on 20-10-2016

As part of our recent work on The Human body, we visited the SEARCH museum in Gosport.

We spent the day  as scientists, exploring skeletons of humans and animals!

We also reinforced our understanding of how the human body works including the internal organs, muscles and joints.

Please enjoy the photos!

First we had to put a skeleton together! (Our stories about Funny Bones really helped us!)

We also had a look at animal skeletons.

We enjoyed using the electronic microscope to look at an owl pellet!! (what the owl has eaten and then thrown up! Yuk!)
