Miller’s Ark Farm Visits our School!

On Wednesday 29th January the children in Year R had some very special visitors.  As part of our learning about The Three Billy Goats Gruff, Miller’s Ark farm came to our school.

The children had the opportunity to see and touch lots of different farm animals including geese, hens, guinea pigs, piglets, sheep, goats and donkeys!

We learnt lots of interesting information about the animals.  Did you know that a female donkey is called a Jenny and a male donkey is called a Jack?  Also all donkeys have a cross on their backs!

We met piglets that were only one month old.  The geese were very noisy and did lots of honking!  The sheep were so soft and their wool was really bouncy.  All the children were very well behaved and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Year R Visit Aldershot Library

To develop a love of reading all the children in Year R visited Aldershot library.  We incorporated our walk to the library into our Geography learning all about journeys.  Before we went we looked at a map of our journey and the different features we would see on the way.  The children learnt that we would be crossing at either a pelican crossing with a green man or a zebra crossing.  We looked both ways and walked to keep ourselves safe.

When we got to the library, the librarian read us her favourite story.  She then divided us into teams and we went on a book hunt!  We had to find a poetry books, a fairy tale, a book about Roman soldiers, a book that makes us happy and a book for a baby.  We enjoyed hunting for these with our friends.

Then we all got given our very own library card and chose a book that we would like to borrow and take home!  We used the machine to issue our book and put them safely inside our book bags.  We then carried on our journey.
