This week we were lucky enough to have a visit from a local farmer. He brought a wide range of animals such as; sheep, goats, a pony, donkey, alpacas, pig, rabbits, guinea pigs, tortoise, duckling, hen and a cockerel!
Ian the farmer answered all of our questions and showed us how he cares for his animals. He also showed us some of the garments and fabrics that are made from the wool of both the alpacas and the sheep. We even got to brush the donkey and the pony!
We learnt so much during his visit and we are using the information we gathered in our writing this week. We will also be writing a thank you letter to Ian as we enjoyed it so much!
Comment below to tell us what your favourite part of the day.

This week have been retelling the story of Billy’s Bucket. We worked in groups to rehearse and we pretended we were on CBeebies Bedtime Stories! We focused on using clear voices, expression, actions, props and working well as a team. We are hoping to share our story videos with the children in Reception and Nursery. Take a look at one of our videos below, we hope you enjoy listening to our story. Please leave a comment to tell us what the children in this group did well!

Today we learnt all about the different jobs within our school and our local area. We wrote questions (using question marks!) for key members of staff, and even got the chance to interview them in the afternoon. We used role play to experience different job roles and take on responsibilities. We discussed how employers hire new members of staff and then used ‘because’ to give reasons for why we would be a good person to employ for different job roles. We have had a great day learning about the different jobs that will be available to us in the future – we hope you enjoy our photos!
Please leave a comment to explain what you would like to be when you grow up, use ‘because’ to give reasons.
