On Monday Owl Class had a wonderful visit to Twycross Zoo as part of their theme ‘Journey of a Lifetime’.  The children got to feed lorikeets (exotic birds) nectar with some landing on the children’s heads.  They walked through the lemurs, up close and personal while the zoo keeper was feeding them.  They saw the Amur Leopard climb upside down in its enclosure and they loved playing in the playground.

The last week of term 5 was a big week for Hedgehog Class with lots of wonderful opportunities where families joined us in school.  On Monday we hosted Hedgehogs Hub Share afternoon which are proving to be very popular, enjoyable and successful and something we definitely hope to develop more next year.  On Thursday as part of their ‘Best of Britain’ learning Experience parents joined Hedgehogs outside in the sunshine for a Wimbledon afternoon.  The children demonstrated their tennis skills they have been working on and then retired to the lawns (the field!) for a lovely picnic together.  A brilliant afternoon and wonderful experience, well done to Miss Polson and Mrs Millar for arranging and running such a lovely event.
