Year One went to Colchester Zoo and we had an amazing time. We saw a variety of different animals and used our best vocabulary to describe how they looked and how they moved. We have learned lots of exciting things that we can use in our Paws, Claws and Whiskers topic work.
Last week Miss Hampton's very kind friend Mrs Alexander brought her dog Cleo in for us to meet. We asked Mrs Alexander all the questions that we could think of and we learned lots of new things about Cleo and dogs in general. It was so much fun to spend time with Cleo.
Mrs Babbs brought her guinea pigs into school for us to meet. Their names are Lettuce and Ginger. We asked interesting questions about them and Mrs Babbs helped us to learn all sorts of facts about them. We all had a turn to hold each guinea pig and stroke them. We were even able to feed them a piece of lettuce. We had to be very gentle and quiet because the guinea pigs don't like loud noises.
