We have been learning all about pets. We had a special visit from a chinchilla and we learnt how to care for it. We got to pet the chinchilla and describe how its fur felt.

On a Friday, one child in class will be chosen for our special box. When it is your child’s turn, they will come home with a note to say they have the special box. Please collect five special things that are important to your child and discuss why they are special to them. It could be a teddy they have had since they were a baby, a certificate that they have been awarded or a photo of a family party. Once you have discussed them, please take a photograph and email this to the school admin email address by the following Thursday.
