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.
