We had a visit from Zoo2U: an amazing, mobile animal company. During the workshop we got to see a range of exotic animals, including meerkats, millipedes, and turtles, up close and learn all about how they are suited to their environment.
In preparation for Remembrance Day, we read the story ‘Where The Poppies Now Grow’ and discussed the important sacrifice so many soldiers have made, and continue to do so, since the first Armistice Day in 1919.
We learnt about Flanders Field and why the Poppy flower is used to symbolise this important occasion. Then we made 3D paper poppies, created collage poppies and decorated a variety of poppy images to adorn our classroom window and remind everyone of the significance of the day.
Children have been writing their own poems this week based on the poem 'I wish I was a pirate'. Elsie decided she wished she was a princess and this is the poem that she created.
