Jay’s Animal Encounter

Everyone had great fun when Jay brought some very unusual friends to our school. We were all very brave (including the teachers) holding creatures such as a snake, a tarantula and even a scorpion! We learnt lots of interesting facts about the animals too!

The children have been reading the story ‘The Tiger Who Came To Tea.’ The children have retold the story in their own words, sequenced the main events; they even had their own tea party and invited a special guest - Mr Akers!

We have been using animals to help us with our maths. 

In RE we have been looking at the different animals in the bible and the story of Noah's Ark. 

We have been painting some of our own creatures. Thinking about some of the animals we saw when Jay visited our class, we have tried hard to capture their true likeness.
