As part of their English work, Year 1 have been learning all about guinea pigs. This work was based on the the book ‘Christopher Nibble’ by Charlotte Middleton. First the children researched lots of information about guinea pigs using books, fact sheets and the internet. They used this information to create fact files about guinea pigs. Then they discovered that Miss Cleeves has two guinea pigs, so they wrote letters to Miss Cleeves asking her whether she was able to bring her guinea pigs into school. The children explained that they had been learning all about them and they asked Miss Cleeves questions about her guinea pigs. On Monday they were lucky enough to have a visit from Blossom and Petal. The children loved meeting the guinea pigs and even got to stroke Petal! Thank you Miss Cleeves.
