4.6.18 - A visit from the 'Animal Lady'
We had a special visit from the 'Animal Lady' today. She brought in 'Mini-beasts' and 'Woodland Animals' which linked to 'Our Wonderful World' topic.
Today we raised lots of money for Birmingham Children's Hospital. We had a 'Mufti' day and wore a bandage. Every class helped to make a balloon shape in the hall using their donations. The balloon that we made is the special logo for the hospital, and the bandages that we wore are a sign of bravery. We had great fun raising lots of money for a really good cause.

Foundation enjoyed themselves this morning on our 'Fun Run' to raise money to improve our playgrounds. In total we ran 90 miles - WOW well done to Foundation.
Little Owl Farm Visit - 27.04.18
During our trip to Little Owl Farm we bottle fed piglets and lambs, and fed special pellet food to the sheep and goats. We also collected eggs from the hens and placed them in a basket. We went on a walk around the farm to look at the ducks, geese, sheep, goats, chickens, rhea and alpaca. We had lots of fun on the tractors and in the sand pit. Finally we got to meet the chicks, hedgehog, rabbits and guinea pigs and we talked about how to care for them, phew! What a busy day, we learnt so much!
The eggs have hatched!!
Look what has arrived in foundation this week.
The children have been busy learning about the hen life cycle and have loved watching the eggs hatch into baby chicks.
