Paws, Claws and Whiskers
Our topic this term is Paws, Claws and Whiskers. We will be learning about the differences between animals and humans, where animals live in the wild and their habitats. Our writing focus will be books including animals, such as Farmer Duck and Pig in the Pond.
We are very lucky to have already had a visit from the PDSA to introduce our topic and explain to the children how we should care for our animals. We will also be visiting Stockley Farm on 3rd May 2017 to support the children’s learning in this topic. If you have not yet paid for the trip, please do so as soon as possible. We are also hoping to have a visit from Ringo the Police Dog to show us how much he has grown since his last visit.
