Maple at the Zoo!

This week we have been very busy!

We have started to learn colours in Spanish and match them to items of the same colour.

The children have used the story of The Gingerbread Man to make a moving picture using a sliding mechanism.

We opened day 1 of the Kindness Advent Calendar. The kind message was to give someone a hug. We can’t wait to see what else is behind the other doors!

To finish off the week we have had a lovely day at Chester Zoo.

We finally got to see the songbirds we have been learning all about.

We went into an area that had been set up like a market and experienced what it would be like to really be there in Indonesia.

Afterwards we had a go at making different types of shadow birds.

We saw the Javan Green Magpie hiding at the back of the enclosure and the Bali Starlings were singing for us and came out to show us their beautiful feathers too.

We saw a huge flock of pink flamingos and the Sumatran Tiger was showing off for us!

The Rothschild Giraffe’s were grazing in the winter sun with their young – who are already over 6ft tall!

Have a great weekend!
