Summer Term

Lions' African experiences

As part of our 'A Walk on the Wild Side' topic, Lions have been learning about some of the similarities and differences between England and Africa. We read Handa's Surprise and learnt about fruit grown in Africa. Then we tasted some of the fruit and thought of adjectives to describe how it tasted. Lions also enjoyed learning to sing an African song and play some African instruments.  

Tigers' have been learning about the upcoming Royal Wedding.

We learnt about the different members of the Royal family. We made our own special crowns and had scones with jam and cream to celebrate. We learnt about what a Royal wedding is and watched some of Prince William and Kate's Royal Wedding. Now we will be looking out for a red carpet, a long veil and the Queen on television tomorrow!
Although it was a very wet start to the day, the Meerkats' trip to Yorkshire Wildlife Park was a huge success! We saw lots of exciting animals including some that we have been learning about in our Topic lessons. Some of our favourites were the polar bears, giraffes, squirrel monkeys, lions and of course the cheeky meerkats! Have a look at our photos and see all the fun we had.
Lions had a great day out at Yorkshire Wildlife Park. We saw polar bears, otters, giraffes, zebras, lions, rhinos and lots of other exciting animals. We learnt about some of the animals at the Wildlife Park during our activity session "Aren't Animals Amazing?" Some of the children even held a snake, giant African land snail, millipede and tiger's jaw! Have a look at some photos from our trip. 
The Tigers had lots of fun at Yorkshire Wildlife Park despite the rain. We saw lions, tigers, polar bears, wallabies, zebra, giraffes and so much more! We enjoyed finding out about the animals in our 'Aren't Animals Amazing' activity session; we even got to touch a millipede, giant African land snail and a snake!
