The Kingfishers and Sparrows lent us their chicks for a day.
Wednesday 1st July. The Harvest Mice and the Field Mice had an excellent day at the zoo, and luckily it wasn't as hot as they were predicting! Without the support of our parent helpers we wouldn't have been able to go - so thank you very, very much - Mr. Pattinson, Mr. McKell, Mrs. Dagger and last, but by no means least, Hayden's nan Jackie.
A HUGE thank you to everyone who contributed to the Harvest Mice cake sale - all the people who baked, came and bought cakes and the wonderful crew who came and ran the cake sale! We made £114.92! Have a relaxing weekend everyone.
Our new topic this term is 'Go Wild!' and we will be growing plants and investigating insects and small creatures. We will be seeing some bigger creatures when we visit Bristol Zoo on 1st July . Two more exciting dates for the Harvest Mice are coming up very soon; on Friday 12th June it is our Learning Showcase at 2.45pm and on Friday 26th June it is the Harvest Mice cake sale!
Harvest Mice working hard.
Well term 5 is now well under way and we are all enjoying our topic on pirates, 'Ahoy there, me hearties!'. Horace was kidnapped by Captain Blackbeard and we only managed to get him back because the Harvest Mice wrote such persuasive letters. We also met a real pirate called Captain Jim who told us all about pirate life! Pirate day was a huge success and all the children looked magnificent.
Lots of creative work has been going on in the Harvest Mice!
