We had a visit from Julie from Eye library. She read us some stories about pets and left us some non-fiction books to look at.

We went on a walk to explore the outdoors and collected twigs and leaves. We brought them back to the classroom to create bird nests.

We also enjoyed lots of other activities such as making cat masks, weighing cat food into bags, stamping letters in cat books and we read the story of 'Tabby McTat'.

We had a visit from a pet parrot- it was really interesting to hear about what it eats, what it needs and how it is different to other pets.
