Welcome to Explorers. Our teacher is called Mrs Nicholl and Mrs Cooke and Miss Crooks are our teaching assistants.

The children are very excited about their new topic,

“Why do spiders eat flies?”

This topic will develop the children’s curiosity, understanding, knowledge

and imagination about mini beasts and small creatures.
