Class 1 were lucky enough to have a visit from a real life superhero.
Ella the guide dog came to meet us with her owner Heather and we found out about how Ella helps Heather to live her life.
We all got to ask Heather questions and wanted to find out "How does Ella drive the car?", "How does Ella do the shopping?" and "Can she do the washing?".
Ella is only 2 1/2 years old and will stay with Heather until she is 10. She was very calm and let everyone stroke her and give her tummy a tickle.
Well what an amazing day Class 1 have had visiting Charlestown! We had a great time in the museum finding real treasure and exploring the different artefacts from years ago. We then went to visit the harbour and met a very friendly pirate who joined us for lunch. We had lots of questions to ask and we have learnt so much about life on board a pirate ship. This visit will finish off our last week of this half term by helping us to write recounts and instructions, and using new vocabulary to explain and discuss.
We have been continuing our Wild Tribe sessions by focusing on the story of The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson, our focus author, and exploring using our senses. After sharing the story we hunted for the different characters, made pine cone mice and homes to keep them cosy. We have tasted scrummy scrambled snake and Gruffalo crumble, cooked over the campfire, made feely boards and musical instruments, explored and identified using magnifying glasses and spotter guides and listened carefully to the sounds around us.
We are inspired by the awe and wonder of the world.
We are bold and innovative in our approach to find new solutions to the challenges we face.
We are the best we can be.
We take responsibility for our actions in an environment of mutual respect.
We overcome all barriers to reach our potential, developing a capacity to improve further.
We are passionate about learning.
