We have been making poppies to prepare for the centenary of the First World War. Keep your eyes peeled to see where they crop up in school.
Today we listened to the story of Meerkat Mail by Emily Gravett using a story map. We then worked together in pairs to retell the story and add actions to help us remember. Year 2 are excited to perform the story to the receptions later on in the week. Why not use the story map at home for some extra practise!
Sunny the Kalahari Meerkat
We had a strange parcel arrive at school today, it was a mysterious suitcase packed with lots of unusual things. Before we read the letter, we wrote lots of questions to try and find out who the mysterious suitcase belonged to. Later on we discovered it was a letter from Sunny himself!
This afternoon we headed up to the woodland to hunt for minibeasts as part of our 'Living Things' topic in Science. We looked carefully beneath logs, stones and leaves and discovered lots of different creatures including spiders! Take a look at what we found!
