Welcome to the Sparrows' Class! (Year 1)

Well, we finally have Sparry back safe and sound! We really did miss him. This year has flown by and we are down to our last 7 weeks... This term we are going to be focusing on ANIMALS! Mr Mead has ordered some new friends, that we will be observing over the next few weeks! Exciting! Keep an eye out for these...

Releasing the butterflies! We had to think of 10 names as they flew out!

We were very lucky this week and got to meet some real tortoises all the way from South America....Terry and Teresa! They came to visit and had tried to write the story of 'How Tortoise got his shell'.' We ended up helping as they didn't know how to use a text map!

Update on our plants and animals!! The butterflies are being released today after we successfully hatched all 10 :D our beans and cress are growing well too! Please have a look at our vegetable patch some time...

Here is our text map for our new story 'How Tortoise got his shell'. Hope you enjoy homework this week :D

We made £375 in our cake sale on Friday! Thank you for your massive support and yummy cakes! Mr Mead and the Sparrows now need to have a think what exciting things we can spend the money on :D

A class full of pirates!! Aye Aye Shipmates!

We received photos of Sparry and the other animals. They are having fun but we don't think they make very good pirates!

We decided to write instructions on How to Catch a Pirate!

Dear Sparrows, Kingfishers and Squirrels, We wish you were here! We are having a lovely Easter break. On Monday we went down to the pond, we found lots of creatures. On Wednesday we explored the new library. It looks amazing! On the last day of the holidays we dressed up as pirates and played on the ship outside. Can you see Rodney and Sparrie? We can’t wait to see you all soon and hear about your holidays. Love from Sparrie, Arlo, Rodney and Rebel xxxx
