Meerkat Mail

To kick start our English book, Meerkat Mail, we had a visit from a pair of Meerkats and their friends. The children learnt lots of facts about the different animals and even got the chance to handle a snake and spider, and stroke a meerkat!! A big thank you to Animal Experience for visiting.

          

 

We are reading Meerkat Mail with great excitement as he describes his journey from the Kalahari Desert to see all his relatives, he was searching for a place where he felt he fitted in perfectly! We have got many learning opportunities from it. 

      

 

In our drama and speaking and listening opportunities we have been acting out the story including Pie Corbett’s actions thinking about how Sunny felt at different times of the story.

 

It is nearly time to wave Sunny goodbye but not before we write our own adventure stories. 

 

 

Little Red Riding Hood

The children are enjoying the start of the Primary Writing Project and have started learning about the story, Little Red Riding Hood. Later on in the project the children get to enhance their writing skills with a range of activities including role play, retelling the story using sign language, weaving paper baskets, making wolves masks and writing a fractured fairy tale of their own.
