What an exciting week it has been In Year 1! We have used our friendliness to warmly welcome lots of visitors into our classroom. The week started with a visit from the RSPB to help us discover the different habitats we currently have on our school grounds. We also learned how to further encourage wildlife into our beautiful school environment. Next we had a visit from some zoo animals, we learned how to handle the animals with care. Mrs Howe and Mr Murphy were so impressed with how gentle and kind we were towards the animals. We even used our courage to hold a snake! The week ended with a visit from some nurses who talked to us about hygiene and the importance of washing our hands. A very important skill in our journey to become animal park rangers. We will be having a well earned rest from our duties this weekend after a very busy week training.
Year 2 have had an incredible start to the year! We have continued our role in the government as Welfare Officers and we have been very busy. Our zoo was in utter chaos; the bears were sunbathing on top of the giraffe’s home, the monkey’s had stolen a pram, the rhino was charging towards a bear in blue shorts!
Complete madness! As Welfare Officers we need to report everything that happens but we also need to learn how to take care of animals. This week we were lucky enough to have a visit from Animal Antics – we learned about all the different animals and the habitat they must live in. Did you know that bearded dragons live for up to 20 years? We can’t wait to see what else is in store!
